Boot from USB

Postby enedene on Mon Sep 13, 2010 11:06 am

I was trying to put the iso to usb and install it to my laptop but I couldn't. How do you I install LMDE from USB?
Code: Select all
dd if=linuxmint-debian-201009-gnome-dvd-i386.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M;sync

This would not boot.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Also agree with Unetbootin.

Remember: Unetbootin will not set the partition on the USB stick as bootable. This can be done with gparted, though.

GRUB doesn't care if the partition is marked as bootable or not. That's an NTLDR problem. :)
OS: Linux Mint / Debian Sid
Kernel: 3.2.0-2-amd64

How would you be able to add 4gb persistence?
