Try something other than Ubuntu. Most installs to a flash drive only copy the contents of a CD to the flash drive, so it is like using a CD. Most modern Linux are using PAE Kernels. Ubuntu should have a distribution that doesn't use PAE Kernels. If it is installing the files of a CD to the flash drive there is nothing you can do to change is because all those files are read only and compressed files that can't be edited. I don't have an answer for this issue.

you need an older system version which does not require PAE, so choose ubuntu version 12,04, its an LTS which means it will be supported until april 2017. or choose linux mint 13 (editions: cinnamon, mate, xfce, kde, whichever is best for you and the computer). if its low on ram and slow, then use the xfce desktop. xubuntu and linux mint xfce have that by default, so does linux lite.
