I know the difference. My question is... why to publish TWO different
versions?. What is the point?.
As I said in my first message, the "non bootable" version seems to be
useful to install in a already created partition in the USB, instead of
overwriting your USB (but then you need an independent boot system
already installed). But I would like to know the "official" reason, or
if I am missing something.
