Re: How To prepare an ISO to USB - Linux & Windows Instructions

^ I think the intended end result is the same: wait until output data is written before returning a prompt.  Sometimes, I have seen the standard ;sync return to prompt immediately, depending on how the flash drive is connected (e.g. a microSD card in a USB adapter, if memory serves).  Perhaps fdatasync more reliably accomplishes this?

Re: How To prepare an ISO to USB - Linux & Windows Instructions

Tutorials like this are always very useful, mainly for new Linux users.

I think that LinuxLive USB Creator is another good software alternative for prepare an USB from Windows, especially when having problems using Win32 Disk Imager.

Thanks VastOne.

Re: How To prepare an ISO to USB - Linux & Windows Instructions

Hi,

I have copied the iso image via dd onto my usb stick and did a reboot.
Nothing does happen, no boot from usb, the system hangs. Looks like that no boot device is found.
Any ideas of what to do next?

My machine is a HP elitebook 8440 and is bootable from usb.
Currently running #! Statler.
