comment How do I use dual monitors with Remmina Remote Desktop Client?
As in my answer to that question, the default installed xfreerdp for Trusty is 1.0.1 which has no Multimon support - you need the newer version. In addition, be sure that your target RDP server supports it - Windows 7 "Professional" does not (presumably to encourage you to upgrade).

comment Is Creating a Bootable USB Drive Permanent?
Bootableness is part of the partition table - the USB drives are just a block device and don't have a special boot sector. That said, I've had drives get into a state where the partition table is majorly screwed up and normal OS tools don't understand it or won't format it. When I get this, I generally just copy a string of zeroes over the raw block device to wipe out the partition table completely. e.g. from Linux .... dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hdb # where /dev/hdb is your USB drive - just letting this run for a few seconds is enough to wipe the partition table and then you can reformat.
