The question is common, but I am not able to solve it with the explanations I found here.
- 4GB usb stick
- Manjaro operaing system
- iso image file of linux mint
First, I did:
lsblk # and got /dev/sdb for my usb stick # I left it unmounted dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb # filled it up with zeros fdisk # Here, I created a DOS partition table and 1 partition # containing the boot flag mkfs.vfat /dev/sdb # made the fat filesystem on the usb stick dd if=linuxmint-18-xfce-64bit.iso.part of=/dev/sdb bs=4M # Now, I copied the ismoimage onto the usb stick echo $? # I checked, if dd finished without error, the exit status was 0 mount /dev/sdb /mnt #I mounted the usb stick and listed its content # the content surprised me, it was not the isoimage-file but this:
boot casper dists EFI isolinux MD5SUMS pool preseed README.diskdefines
Then, I set the boot order in uefi as usb stick first, but it did not worked, I only saw my GRUB loader window and started into Manjaro like always.
