Making a Bootable USB [Indamixx]
Our Indamixx Netbook's OS has been broken by an accidentally installed update, so I need to re-install, and I've already downloaded the necessary ISO. Unfortunately, there is no CD drive built into the netbook, and we do not have an external one; so I need to use the ISO file to make a bootable USB, which I will then be able to install with. However, I have not had any success in doing this, though I used the following process on a working open SUSE 11.2 machine: jwesleycooper@linux-twom:~> su Password: linux-twom:/home/jwesleycooper # ls -l /dev/disk/by-id/*usb* lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2010-03-09 20:16 /dev/disk/by-id/usb-FLASH_Drive_AU_USB20_OYTMN3G3S4GVEPNBWU94-0:0 -> ../../sdb linux-twom:/home/jwesleycooper # umount /dev/sdb linux-twom:/home/jwesleycooper # cd Download linux-twom:/home/jwesleycooper/Download # dd if=trinity_master_i386.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M;sync 128+1 records in 128+1 records out 539813888 bytes (540 MB) copied, 82.2916 s, 6.6 MB/s linux-twom:/home/jwesleycooper/Download # ...I'm just getting a message saying that there is no OS on the drive! Anyone here know what the problem might be?
