Re: copy an image file into USB stick and make it bootable

It is much more difficult in windows and depends on what the image is. Generally, it means opening the image file and copying the contents onto a prepared usb stick.

You might want to try dd for windows...

Re: copy an image file into USB stick and make it bootable

Thx for all answers.
I'd like to copy self created linux live img file under windows and make it bootable.

Other way, but don't know how should work, is to copy already created bootable usb stick.
Maybe using Acronis True Image 2011?

Re: copy an image file into USB stick and make it bootable

I've been thinking about it recently. I read the reviews . i want to add , We need a USB big enough memory. If the burn is recorded, the USB memory will not be enough to cause the burn to fail.I've had a similar situation
