It’s that time again. I know it’s not terrifically popular with everyone and might only appeal to people who are comfortable working with the command line.
But if you’re tired of burning CDs and just want a single image you can write straight to USB with
dd and without an intermediary bootup, this might appeal to you.
The standard disclaimers apply. You’re overwriting your USB, of course. There are no special tweaks in place. It’s all default, and only for i386. I’ve just saved you the step of booting a CD and clicking on “Startup Disk Creator.”
Or in the case of Unity, scratching around through the gigantic buttons, finally searching for “USB” and finding the application button hiding somewhere. Or at least, that’s what I ended up doing.
