Making an Ubuntu startup / installation disk on a hard drive partition

To create an Ubuntu startup / installation disk on a hard drive partition (when running Ubuntu – I’m running version 11.04), use the following command.

usb-creator-gtk --allow-system-internal

It just runs Ubuntu’s normal USB startup disk creation tool, but makes it display internal (i.e. hard drive) partitions as well as the removable ones (ordinarily, only the removable ones are displayed). I did this to make one of my internal flash drives (/dev/sda1) an installation boot disk for Ubuntu 11.10.
