Is there an alternative to Startup Disk Creator for creating a bootable usb in Ubuntu 16.04 ?
Best is the
dd command as other alternatives including Startup Disk Creator often gives errors with newer versions of linux. The command is
sudo dd bs=4M if=/path/to/.iso of=/dev/sdx && sync
Remember to unmount the USB and check the device name with
lsblk command and change the
sdx with appropriate device name in the command.
UNetbootin is a great alternative of Startup Disk Creator. UNetbootin (Universal Netboot Installer) is a cross-platform utility that can create live USB systems and can load a variety of system utilities or install various Linux distributions and other operating systems without a CD. You can install UNetbootin in Ubuntu 16.04 by running the commands given below from terminal :-
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gezakovacs/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unetbootin
