[Solved]Trying to "burn" the iso to usb

Hey guys!

Quick question - I'm trying to use a usb thumb drive to install #! (I can't find any CDs lying around).  I used the dd method (unetbootin didn't work out well) and it works okay and all.  But when I try booting from the flash drive, it fails miserably and I can't actually boot.  It just sits there with a blinking cursor.  The wiki page made no mention of a bootloader - is that required?

Thanks in advance!

no - you should be good to go.

i always make sure i sync - umount - eject manually following the dd.

in saying that i've had exactly this issue with a liquid lemur beta which i wasn't able to resolve smile. md5 was ok. :shrug:

I actually fixed this by removing the usb drive and reinserting the drive before booting tongue  Marking this thread solved! smile
