I'm looking to install debian and the debian manual says bootloader pgms aren't necessary.https://www.debian.org/releases/whee...h04s03.html.en
A simple command on a debian distro on your hard disk will make a live USB for you:
# cp debian.iso /dev/sdX
I also got an alternative command from replica9000 which I overlooked:
dd if=debian-7.7.0-amd64-netinst.iso of=/dev/sdc
I want to copy a particular 'live' hybrid .iso onto my USB. My debian OS on hard disk labels the USB as sdg. I'll need to make sure the USB is unmounted first.
I'm thinking I could try this:
root@host# cp debian-live-7.7.0-amd64-gnome-desktop+nonfree.iso /dev/sdg
root@host# dd if=debian-live-7.7.0-amd64-gnome-desktop+nonfree.iso of=/dev/sdg
Would either of these commands be correct?
