Putting ISO on USB from terminal help
Where did I do something wrong?
I'm trying to put an instance of Slackware on an SD card. It wouldn't boot from the card so I did the same on a USB stick. Still wouldn't boot. I burned the same ISO image to DVD using Brasero and it booted into Slackware problem-free.
This is what I did to install the image on both the SD card and the USB stick:
1. Logged in as super user.
2. inserted and discovered the name of the card/USB stick:
~$ df -hT
3. Unmounted the device:
~$ umount /dev/[card name]
4. Formatted the card:
~ $ mkfs.ext3 /dev/[card name]
5. transferred the image:
~$ dd if=Downloads/slackware-14.0-iso/slackware-14.0-install-dvd.iso of=dev/[card name]
I did move the boot device priority around in my BIOS to boot to USB/media card 1st, but it seems to ignore the USB/SD card and go right into loading the OS on my hard drive instead.
What did I do wrong?
