VL 64-bit can be installed from a USB device.

Please tell us what iso file you used, and how you transferred it to the USB drive.

So, I used the last link in this page: http://vectorlinux.com/downloads (Download VLocity 7.0 VLocity is VectorLinux for your 64 bits CPU).
I transfer it on the usb with "usb-creator-gtk".
I have a Ubuntu 14.04 (if it can help)

The 7.0 version should be transferred to usb using "dd", which can be risky unless you know exactly what you are doing.

I would recommend you go here: http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.1/iso/
and download the latest RC version.

On your Ubuntu machine, first install Unetbootin.
Insert the usb stick, make sure it is formatted as FAT32, and delete all files from it (including hidden ones).
Run Unetbootin and follow the prompts.

And with unetbootin wich distribution i need to choose? D:

EDIT: there is any guide with the "dd method" for the 7?

RE_EDIT: is like this: "sudo dd if=/home/ubuntulinux/Scrivania/ubuntu.iso of=/dev/sdc" where:

if : link Input File
of: link Device usb?

And with this method I can install the first .iso I linked? O:

RE_RE_EDIT: I had done the writing on usb with 'dd' (with the iso file: VL64-7.0.1-STD-FINAL.iso) but I still have that problem.
I tried both BIOS mode, legacy and UEFI D:
Nothing D:
(sorry for the multiple EDIT)

Your use of dd is correct. Smiley

I never tried USB install of VLocity 7.0, so no personal experiences to pass on. There are a couple of discussions of it in these threads:
http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=16163
http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=14866

Regarding the use of Unetbootin, it allows you to select a previously downloaded ISO file instead of picking one from the pre-populated list. I have done this with several of the 7.1 images, and with those I am happy to report that Unetbootin has worked every time.
