How to create Bootable Recovery is Possible (RIP) USB?

This article will demonstrate how to create a bootable usb for Linux distro named Recovery Is Possible (RIP). I will add another article on this particular distro (I believe there is plenty of them online). There is a lot of different ways to do this. But I am writing the easy way and it works for both Windows and Linux.

How to prepare:

You will need the following:

1. A computer which supports USB Boot (most of them does).

2. A USB drive (At least 150 MB)


Virtualbox: Shared directory- “unknown filesystem type vboxsf”
