How can I create a bootable USB stick on Ubuntu 14.04?

  • For which OS did you are trying to create bootable USB disk ? – Avinash Raj Jun 18 '14 at 17:05
  • I don't know Startup Disk Creator well, but did you enter that string manually? If so, then the slash (/) can cause the error. Try eg. ubuntu instead. – psimon Jun 18 '14 at 17:06

    @AvinashRaj I tried create a Debian 7 32 bits. – Vitor Mazuco Jun 18 '14 at 17:07
  • try unetbootin :-) – Avinash Raj Jun 18 '14 at 17:08

The best solution for this, is to use dd like this

dd if=/path/to/debian.iso of=/dev/sdc

Is necessary to burn the image to the entire usb and not just the first partition, sdc, not sdc1.
