I made a copy to usb as bootable.
But it works as a live cd.
And it gives the option to install the linux on that usb.
It does not show other partitions during manual partition option.
Is there any way to install linux from that usb to a hard drive partition?

Is it possible that you downloaded the live CD? (Although it should give the option to install to hard drive.).

In general, you can use unetbootin, as you mention, and if one clicks the install option (assuming one has downloaded an installable CD), it installs on the hard drive.

Do you mean that when you get to the partitioning section, it doesn't see hard drive? Or is it doing something like talking about formatting the USB stick. (Hrrm, was that Fedora or CentOS? I thought it was CentOS)

If I click the install icon and during the manual partition it gives the option of installing the linux in the pedrive.
Only the partition of pedrive appears.
Others partitions of hard drive do not appear(kubuntu).

Problem solved with booting from usb pendrive.
At the first time, there was only the option to install linux on the usb pendrive.
But trying several times now got the option to install on different partition of hard disk.(using manual partition)
Don't know why,interesting.
But can anyone tell how to boot a .iso file from a hard disk partition?

I have a page at http://home.roadrunner.com/~computer...eone160GB.html that gives some information on doing that. Look for the section, towards the end, about installing from an ISO image without a USB key or external drive..
