create USB flash drive

Postby RFSndrs » Fri May 15, 2020 10:33 am

Is there any way I can create a USB flash drive with out windows? I have installed unetbootin for creating the actual disk using freeDOS. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

In the manual there is information for Linux to a CD/DVD and to Floppy.
You can use the floppy method and just copy to a UFD - that is basically
"normal - raw boot image" and have the UFD boot in removable or zip
drive mode if older system with that option.

It's in the BIBM manual (page 21).

You may have to resize it afterwards and then copy the image and
scripting items. The base is BIBM.
