[SOLVED] Burning ISO's to USB

Post by Black Swordsman » Sat Feb 24, 2018 4:45 am

I had used Rufus to burn the linux mint onto a usb when I was using windows. Is there a similar software/application that I can use so I can make other boot ISO usb's for different OS when I decide to build my new computer?

There are several, but one is built-in with Mint. Type Image Writer in your menu search bar. However I prefer etcher from https://etcher.io/.

You're most welcome, and there's no need to feel stupid :)

Its more so because I have been through the menu several times and had not spotted that. As soon as I went to Etcher website I remembered seeing a google search about mounting iso to usb using that so I started downloading it right away. (seems simple enough to use anyways)

Etcher in Linux is the near-equivalent of Rufus in Windows .... neither has ever let me down .

For multi-boot , there is Multisystem for Linux ( similar to YUMI in Windows )
https://sourceforge.net/projects/multisystem/

The user can choose to add persistence to any one distro , after writing the ISO to USB .

That's a nice little touch .... :)

I never used YUMI so I am not sure what that does. but my understanding of that multisystem tool allows me to pack multiple OS's onto one USB?

That's right, it allows you to have an USB drive you can use to install several different distros from.
