Hi Rafael,

1. No it is not made to be installed with Unetbootin.

In linux, I think it is easiest to use mkusb according to this link


In Windows you can use 7-zip and win32diskimager according to the


2. Yes, it is persistent, because it is an installed system.

It behaves like a system installed to an internal drive, except that it
might be slower depending on the pendrive's hardware and the USB system.
A fast USB 3 pendrive in a USB 3 system is almost as fast as an internal
system. A fast USB 3 pendrive in a USB 2 system is much faster than a
standard USB 2 pendrive.

Best regards
