How to install Linux Mint via USB — Linux Mint Community.

With a few screenshots, I wish to show you : How “ ridiculously ” easy it is, to get a working ISO ported to an USB ! 😉 All this, without having to wrap my brain around the following. 😉

Well — first of all — you’d need to get a current ISO, which you first ought to copy bit for bit, onto a designated USB pen drive.

My USB got recognized as :

/dev/sdc1

After wich I proceeded to “ install ” my ISO to :

##  Yes, without the ‘ 1. ’
/dev/sdc

Like so :

##  The ‘ \ ’ increases readability.
sudo dd if=/media/my-movies/lmde-201403-64bit.iso \  
of=/dev/sdc oflag=direct  bs=1048576

And here we get to see — last line — it in fact did “ install ” LMDE to target. 😉

I rebooted — *while crossing my fingers* — and was greeted with my future desktop environment ! YAY 😉 ← Before you boot from your USB, make certain the option to boot from it, is checked in your BIOS ! 😉
