Question Can I write an IMG file to a HDD?


Hi all,

I am wanting to try out Chromium OS. I came across Vanilla so I downloaded it. It says that the IMG file should be written to a USB stick, but I don't have one at my disposal. I do have a portable hard drive, though.

Does anyone know how I could just simply write that file to my portable drive too or do I need to do something else?

I'm using Xubuntu right now, if it matters.

Thanks!

It should work with an USB disk also, but keep in mind that you will loose all data on that disk.
