Note: These instructions erase the whole stick. The result will be just one bootable OS on the stick. In the next post I will tell how to get the stick back to normal, somewhat.
- Stick the USB stick in the computer
- In the terminal, determine the device:
sudo ls -l /dev/disk/by-id/*usb*
The device listed multiple times, with a number in the end and without, is the one to use. E.g. /dev/sdb
- If you have automount enabled, unmount the device.
- cd to the folder where the iso file is.
- Create bootable device:
sudo dd if=filename.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M; sync
The device path is an example. However, it must be without number in the end.
