Unetbootin installs grub which then boots the system you specify. I don't like that. Linux live ISOs are directly bootable and usually contain a pre-configured grub install of their own which among other things, tends to work better. The
dd command is the second most commonly recommended method of creating a bootable usb from an ISO. Honestly i would love it except for two things. First, i cant seem to make it work. Second, i dont fully understand its use (which may be a decent explanation for the first reason)
I have found a utility called "rufus" which works like a charm, every time. It only runs on Windows, which i will never use again now that i have a workable understanding of linux.
So is there another, 100% reliable, way to create a bootable USB from an ISO?
if nothing comes to mind, maybe some insight on the
dd command could help...
convoluted, excessively complex, and even c/c++ solutions are more than welcome (i wouldn't mind coding my own utility)
