Make sure you get DVD, it won't quite fit on CD.

But I really want you to try rufus for windows with dd option, that's what worked for me for legacy with other methods failed.

Hi enigma9o7.

I don't recall that the version of Rufus that I downloaded under Windows had a dd option. Did I miss it OR, is there a specific Rufus-dd that I should download?

Regards and thanks,
Howard

yes you missed it. It is in a pop-up window after you hit start. At the top it will say something about hybrid iso. There will be two options the second one is DD option

SUCCESS with Rufus-dd method

SUCCESS!

The Rufus-dd option worked. It was simple and fast to execute.

I have now successfully booted from the flash drive.

And yes, I didn't pay any attention to the pop-up the first time around.

The only drawback I see is that production of the bootable flashdrive is dependent upon a system running Windows.

Regards and thank you all very much,
Howard

Yeah, that's weird. It also worked for me using dd for linux, so it is odd that it didnt for you that way. In fact I think thats what the dd option in windows rufus is supposed to do, do it the same as dd. Maybe the command line options matter, I just searched online when I did it so no idea what switches I used specifically.

to dd in linux
Code:
sudo dd if=some.iso of=/dev/sdx bs=4M
sdx will be sdb or something similar. You can find what the usb is by either by sudo fdisk -l or sudo parted -l
