To create a bootable USB under linux is really straightforward. The following steps should be respected to guarantee the success of this operation:
- plug your USB flash drive into your PC
fdisk -lto identify the name of your USB drive. Be aware, this step is crucial and any mistake at this point can wipe data on other drive(s)!
- If you identified the name of your USB drive (for instance
/dev/sdb1) than you should use it in the following operation:
df if=/path_to_iso_file.iso of=/dev/sdb
output file(recall that under Linux everything is considered as a file!).
- Pay attention, you should be aware of the non-existence of numbers in the name of the USB drive
- That’s it! Enjoy!
