dd doesn't exist in Windows... Rufus works fine, just a matter of following the Installation Guide on the Wiki.TNFrank wrote:Or just forget Rufus altogether and use dd in the Terminal. Now that I've used dd for a while it's my preferred method of making bootable USB sticks. I use to use UNetbootin but it didn't work well with Arch based Distros but dd will work with every Distro I've used it for. It's very simple. Just cd to where the .iso is at, use the ls command to list out the .iso name and copy it then do a "sudo dd if=".iso name" of=/dev/sdx" where "x" is the drive letter where the usb stick is at(normally sdb in my system) then give it some time for dd to do it's thing and bingo, you've got a bootable usb stick.
I didn't know that since I gave up on Windows after 3 years of struggling with Win98 and picking up an iMac in 2001. My wife and I had a Windows 8 laptop for about a week in 2011 but returned it after it picked up a Trojan Horse virus that borked the system. I got an older laptop, installed Ubuntu 12.04 on it and haven't looked back. I've been all Linux from that point until now.Justin wrote: dd doesn't exist in Windows...
