dd command not working while creating Live USB
I want to create a Live USB ..I have the ISO image in the hard disk
dd if=/path/Pardus-2011.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M
Where Sdb is my USB
The copy operation is okay...It says no of records in / out and gives the statistics
But when I boot the system , getting the error:
SYSLINUX: 2003 to 2010 Peter Anvin
No UI or default directive found
In some cases , the USB itself is not recognized by BIOS at boot..
My BIOS supports boot from USB ..I have Boot order 1. CD/DVD 2. USB 3. HDD
Also what is the filesystem to be adopted for dd?
I usually format using FAT or FAT 32
1.mkfs.vfat /dev/sdb -I (or)
2.mkdosfs /dev/sdb (or)
3.mkdosfs -F 32 /dev/sdb
What is the correct way of partitioning USB drive? - FAT or FAT 32....Most Live USB creators (unetbootin/LiLi Live/Usb Creator) recognize only FAT32...
I dont want a Linux filesystem (ext2,ext3 or 4or reiserfs)for my USB as it is not portable across many systems as MS OSes do not read them..Also I had little success in booting a USB when I partitioned it using ext2..I read somewhere that ext2 will not reduce the life of the USB drive compared to other fs.
