[How-To] Create USB-Install medias
« on: 10. November 2012, 15:07:14 »
Windows Instructions
Download ImageWriter

Download the SUSE Studio ImageWriter
Write ISO to USB

Write the LiveCD to the USB stick.

NOTE: Windows Imagewriter.exe, unlike Linux version, does not see automatically .iso files, only .raw, but it works with any of those files without problems. That leads to manual selection described below.

  • Open the downloaded ImageWriter
  • If the ImageWriter won't open, you'll probably need to download the .NET 2.0 Runtime
  • If you get an error right after you start the process, you may want to right-click the executable and "Run as administrator".
  • Press the select button
  • Type *.* in the file name box and find your LiveCD image
  • Select your USB stick and click the Write button

NOTE: You may meet this error on some MS Windows versions:

If you have done above steps correctly but still get error like this system.componentModel.Win32Exception:Access is denied, try either:
       
  • An opening Windows Explorer might blocked direct accessing to a physical drive. If you opened the ImageWriter from a Windows Explorer, close the ImageWriter then open it again, after opened, close every window of Windows Explorer, then try to write the ISO again.
  • Use a partiton tool to delete the whole USB stick partition, to make the partition 'RAW'. (Note this will destory all you data on the USB stick and before you format it again, you won't be able to use it as usual.) After that, rerun the ImageWriter and try to write the ISO again.

Great!
As I did not know this method, I tried with UNetbootin and Universal USB Installer unsuccessfully ... so I had to burn DVD.

This works greats with me,

Code: Bash
  1. # dd bs=4M if=/path/to/manjaro.iso of=/dev/sdx

Just change /dev/sdx with your removable device, like /dev/sdb, remember the device not the partition like this /dev/sdb1

@albatsy: dd is what I'm using to create my USB-Sticks. imagewriter does the same, just with a GUI.

Thanks for the link to Suse Image Writer, I installed Manjaro to a USB this morning and it works perfectly.

My only experience on Unetbootin  with my used USB stick, you have to do first a format by (gnome) Disk utility on MBR then Fat !  then with unetbootin i had always some iso, but is not so good like imagewriter :) imagewriter is nice and has to do less job then unetbootin :) and the gui is simpel and make your startup in usb nicer then unetbootin too :) that tool is used by mint too, only they forked it :)

How do you install multiple OS's to one usb? Do I have to erase one OS and write another one or can I have them all on there at once?
"Do or do not, there is no try."

Linux _is_ user-friendly. It is not ignorant-friendly and idiot-friendly.

Windows was made for looking at success from a distance through a wall of over-simplicity. Linux removes the wall, so you can just walk up to success and make it your own.
