How To Create A Bootable USB In Debian

Yes, Unetbootin is a great tool, but for some reason I can't get it to work in Debian. Fortunately you can achieve the same by using the command line and it is nearly as straightforward as using unetbootin.


Creating Bootable USB In Debian


First, we want to get the exact name of our USB device.

sudo fdisk -l

The output should be similar to mine.

Disk /dev/sdb: 2013 MB, 2013265920 bytes 

Now that we now the location, we want to write our .iso or .img file to the USB.

dd if='/home/user/Downloads/linuxmint-201403-mate-dvd-64bit.iso' of=/dev/sdb

This will take some time, so be patient and do not interrupt the process.
