Since the bootable USB drive is not persistent (yet) how to code and develop from a location to store it.
First go to other locations (after booting up the machine), find the windows drive, make a new folder (I made boot_folder_2019).
Download the amd file for Linux and store it in the windows drive. Then make a file called projects to store code.
Install the amd for (VSC) on Linux
Make a run.py file and add some code, open the projects folder in VSC, then open the terminal and it gives you the location right away to run it.
So now you can navigate to windows\Documents and Settings\your-user and move the files from your old env (virtualenv) and load them in VSC from Linux folder that you have opened in VSC.
