Burn iso to usb pen drive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 5, 2015
I would like to dump Windows entirely, but have not found a method to burn an iso to a pendrive using Linux.
Puppy has no built in program to burn an iso to a pen drive. ??
They only offer to install Puppy to a pen drive.
Unetbootin and live usb install do not work.
Any recommendations ?
Installing Windows 8 iso Image on USB pen drive for installation purpose on linux [closed]
location: linuxexchange.com - date: February 25, 2013
My college offers me a windows 8 system for free so I thought "Yay let's get the games out of the cellar" and downloaded the iso image, but now I have a problem: How do I install the installer image on an USB pen drive on a linux machine? I'm using crunchbang statler, which is a subdistribution of ubuntu.
Some System specs:
Linux 3.2.0-0.bpo.1-686-pae (ubuntu/crunchbang)
enough space to load every random click'n'color-woosh GUI, which aims its purpose, but I'd prefer the terminal-way :D
HowTo use USB pen drive as Loader for iso distros on HDD
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 19, 2008
i want to have a bootable usb pen drive which is able to mount an iso image of a distro install CD. I'm tired of burning them on CD's..
For this problem I found this thread, but I think its not quite what I'm looking for.
I thought of something like this:booting from usb
load kernel from image using (maybe by kexec or something like that)
The problem should be changing the running kernel.
So this is what I think so far:
The first thing I need, would be a booting usb drive with some kind of general purpose 'system'. What could that be?
Next I have to extract the image on my HD, I think.
In the thread I mentioned above that's done by creating a own partition for this. I don't understand why this is necessary (why missing files?).. Shouldn't extracting into an single directory also work?
My favorite would be avoiding the image extraction...
On the other hand: Is it possible to add an grub entry for the extracted image?
This is a bit confusing, but I think
boot from any .iso file on a USB pen drive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 24, 2007
The problem is simple:
I have a box that has no CDRom drive, but that can boot from any USB pendrive.
I have seen some tutorials that tell you that you can put a .iso image of a CD on the stick and that it will boot from that (to install Ubuntu for example).
I got the pen drive booting, installed syslinux on it and it sucessfully loads the initrd and the kernel. But then the kernel hangs with the message "waiting for root system..."
(funny that it does not just give an kernel panic (unable to mount root fs))
after a while, it drops you into busybox... I am not really friends with pivot_root and have not gotten it to work once so far (resource or device is busy must be my "favorite" error message on Linux ;-)
The tutorials really don't elaborate exactly how this .iso image is mounted by the kernel.
Do you know any tutorial that explains how to be accomplish this, to be able to put ANY .iso image (with a predefined name) on the pen drive a

can longer copy files to my empty USB pen drive on DSL "no space left on device"
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 17, 2009
I'm brand new to Linux. In order to save some files from a few hard drives after a major system crash, my only success has come from using Damn Small Linux bootable CD - it's great.
I have been copying files onto my USB pen drive then carting them to my laptop for backup. Randomly I now get the error: "no space left on device", even though I have deleted all of the files on the drive. This exact drive was working perfectly and now will not work at all!
Any ideas? Please be as specific as possible - I'd like to learn this interface well but I am starting from scratch here. Thanks so much.
Wish to access files in USB pen drive in Ubuntu Linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 16, 2010
I'm a newbie and wish to copy files from USB drive to some location in Ubuntu Linux and have tried with the command 'sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb' and have received following message 'mount: /dev/sda1 already mounted or /mnt/usb busy. mount: according to mtab, /dev/sda1 is mounted on /boot'.
I don't understand what it says, since I don't find the usb drive neither in '/boot' path nor I find it in '/mnt/usb'. So please make me understand how do I access the files on flash drive and copy at the desired place.
Thanks in advance
How to fix USB Pen Drive unmount problems with slack 9.1?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 22, 2007
Hello fellow LQers!
I have a strange problem with my USB pen drive. For years I am using slackware 9.1 (kernel 2.4) and use 512MB TranscendData USB JetFlash. I can mount/unmount it without problem and it works fine, except in one situation.
The problem is that, if I copy small files from my usb drive (/dev/sda1, mounted on /mnt/flash), everything is OK. But, when I try to copy a big file, half way through I get "Input/Output error" on the device, the drive gets unmounted and then I can not mount it again unless I reboot my machine.
Anyone faced similar problem? Can somebody suggest some solution to this?
Making a bootable partitioned usb pen drive
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 1, 2011
I have a USB pen drive which I want to split up to two partitions, one for installing Ubuntu and one which I want to be able to access from Windows.
How do I fix the partitions the easiest way, with diskmgmt.msc? (disk manager or whatever it's called in English)
What file systems should I use? FAT32 for the Windows-accessible, ext4 for the linux?
As for the installation itself I'll just follow the "Show me how" from the download page (and some googling when I fail miserably).
Preferably I'd like grub (or similar) to let me choose whether to boot from the USB or from the regular hard drive, but I can't install it on the computer itself - is this possible? Otherwise I'm totally okay with setting the boot order in the BIOS setup utility instead.
I'm on a laptop running Windows 7,
the USB is a Kingston DataTraveller 112 with 14.4 GB of free space (I've flipped the removable bit so my gullible Windows can do a little more with it),
the distro I'd prefer is Bodhi
