Make a VM by memory stick

I’d like to creat a bootable memory stick, I have an Acer Nitro 5 AN517-51 wich came with Endless OS but I wish i could have Manjaro, I don’t know what I can do to make it happen… I already downloaded the .ISO but it doesn’t work. Any help?

Welcome to the forum! :wave:

Your topic title doesn’t really make any sense. It sounds like you’re having trouble writing a Manjaro ISO to a USB drive. What do you mean by, “make a VM”? I don’t see how a virtual machine is related. Maybe it’s a language barrier if English isn’t your first language?

Please edit your topic title to make it clear what you actually need help with. See How to Post

Searching the internet / Manjaro Wiki / Manjaro Forums before you ask a question is always prudent and wise.

Sorry, that’s doesn’t help us help you. Please let us know what you did and what you had trouble with.

I’m sorry about my mistakes, English is not my first language.

I am traying to creat a Virtual Machine in a USB drive. I’ve burned the ISO using a program called Nixwriter, this is the program I can run on my sistem (Endless OS). Now I’m having problems to make this USB drive bootable, as I sayd, I have an Acer Nitro 5 model AN517-51. Could you help ?

That makes no sense. Either install Manjaro in a virtual machine on your Endless OS installation or follow the guides I linked above to create a bootable USB. Your topic title does not match your first sentence in your first post. They are two different things.

What is the end goal? Are you planning on dual-booting with Endless OS and Manjaro?

I get the impression the Author is trying to create a manjaro system akin to Puppy, that runs entirely of the memory stick, leaving nothing on the Host machine.
