Ubuntu: Error in making a bootable USB drive


I was trying to make a bootable USB drive but nothing seems to work. I don't think I need to explain a lot here because I think the picture speaks for itself.

enter image description here


I think before you execute the dd command. You should execute the lsblk command to see which drive your USB is located. After that, you can do what you have just done. However, this time, try with the following style:

sudo dd bs=4M if=path/to/your/*.img of=/dev/sdx (x is the letter of your drive) && sync

Edit: This method will only work on Linux, so you have to do it in another way for Macintosh.

  1. diskutil list > list out all the drive in your system.

  2. diskutil unmountDisk /dev/diskN > identify your device and unmount it (In your case, I believe that drive is /dev/disk1)

  3. sudo dd if=/path/to/downloaded.img of=/dev/diskN bs=1M
