I want to install Scientific Linux from USB. I don't know why unetbootin doesn't work but I am not curious to find out: after all, I transferred to Linux from Windows to see and learn the underlying procedures. I format my USB drive to FAT32 and run this command as root:
# pv -tpreb /path/to/the/downloaded/iso | sudo dd of=/path/to/the/USB/device
While it works for Live-CDs or network installs (that are less than 1GB) it doesn't work for the actual installation DVDs that are about ~4GB. I would be really grateful if anyone can help me fix this problem.
Considering the fact that it works for smaller .iso files, I guess it has to do with the File System, am I correct? What other options do I have?
