To make a bootable USB drive on any Linux distribution, you need to learn just one command.

This command is dd and I explain how to use it in the video.

dd simply writes any ISO image to a USB flash.

By using dd you can make a bootable USB on any Linux system, by writing an installation image to the usb drive.

You can make a bootable USB on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Debian, OpenSuse, Arch Linux etc.

You can also use this approach to make a bootable Windows USB drive, if you write a Windows ISO file to the USB drive.

Here is the summary of the procedure:

# Write ISO to your USB flash drive:

sudo dd bs=4M if=/path/to/iso of=/dev/sdX status=progress && sync

Repalce /dev/sdX with your device name here and below.
To find out the device name, check your devices with
sudo fdisk -l

# Restore your USB flash drive

Clean your flash drive:
sudo wipefs –all /dev/sdX

Create a new partition:
sudo cfdisk /dev/sdX

And format this partition as FAT file system:

sudo mkfs.vfat -n ‘yourlabel’ /dev/sdX1

Please, let me know what is your favorite way of making a bootable USB on Linux.
