Hi Kakiray,
Puppy Linux installs easily to a USB "flash/thumb" drive - it is just one of the alternatives given when you shut down from a live CD/DVD the first time (512MB will work); another is to continue using the CD/DVD as a "multisession" (boot from, read from, write to).
Cheers

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
