Boot Manjaro iso image from a USB flash drive
« on: 30. November 2012, 16:37:32 »
Hi,

Is it possible to boot the iso image from a USB flash drive?

Actually, I do that very often with lot of other linux distributions, using dd command or UNetbootin (http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/) from Linux, Universal USB Installer (http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/) or LinuxLive USB Creator http://www.linuxliveusb.com/ from Windows, but all these solutions failed with Manjaro!

Do you have any solution? Can you make the USB iso usable with these tools?

Thanks,

Fab_

You'll have to use Win32 Disk Imager, its kinda cruddy compared to all of the USB programs you've listed above but it does work. Here is the link: https://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer

in Windows you can do this:

+ Download www.chrysocome.net/downloads/dd-0.5.zip

+ Once installed, open the command prompt and do this:

Code: [Select]
dd.exe if=/path/to/the/downloaded/iso of=/path/to/the/USB/device
