It is really really important to learn the right terminology and how
to use it, or we won't know what you're talking about and we will all
be very confused and lost.

Unetbootin does not /install/ Ubuntu onto a USB key. It just writes
the image you downloaded onto the key, in the same way that you can
write it to a writeable DVD disk. Then you can boot from the flash
drive, just like you can boot from a DVD.

But Ubuntu is not installed on anything yet.

You boot from your USB key and _then_ you install, onto your
computer's internal hard disk or onto an external hard disk or even
onto another USB key if you wish.

Then you boot the PC from _that_ drive. _That_ is an installed Ubuntu system.

You haven't done that yet, by the sound of it. You're still running
off a live demo system, just one that booted off a USB key.

Next, you have to install it on your computer. _Then_ you get your
drivers working, install Flash Player etc.
