I want to be able to boot RHEL 6.3 from a USB3 stick, on a windows based PC/laptop. I have the 6.3 on DVD and want to create a bootable image on the stick. How do I do that? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!! \\\

If you're looking to make a bootable USB installation media, something like the Universal USB Installer utility might work: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/univers...easy-as-1-2-3/

Better still, the official instructions on doing this from Red Hat themselves:
https://access.redhat.com/documentat...usb-media.html


However, if you're wanting to boot into a live environment of sorts... I'm not sure RHEL6.x supports a live environment running off a USB stick. Indeed, looking further down in the docs linked at RH above it appears they only support making Live USB sticks using RHEL7, not 6.

For what it's worth, I know Centos7 has a live environment image you can download and install to a USB stick. Further, using the liveusb-creator within Fedora allows you to make a bootable USB stick with persistence--that is, you can make and save changes that remain after rebooting etc.

So, depending on your ultimate end goal, if you're looking for a persistent USB-based environment you'll probably need to look into either Centos7/RHEL7 or Fedora instead.

Hope this helps.

Why 6.3? Do you have a Redhat subscription? If not you shouldn't be using RHEL.

You can get the CentOS live CD/DVD ISOs here:
http://vault.centos.org/

There isn't a live version for 6.6, but there is for the previous members of the 6.x family.
