I'm attempting to mount an Ubuntu .iso to a USB drive using the dd command in Debian, however I'm having trouble. Below is the process I've been using thus far:
- Format the disk I want to mount the .iso to (now the Device ID is /dev/sde)
suin a terminal to grant root access and enter password
umount /dev/sde(Just for good measure, I'm aware the disk is already unmounted)
dd bs=4M if=/home/user/Downloads/ubuntu-gnome-16.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso of=/dev/sde
Now, in the past when I've used this in other distros it's worked just fine and I could carry on to
sync, and then boot up using the newly created media. However in Debian it seems to become totally unresponsive after entering the command in step 4, simply giving me a cursor on the next line down with no shell prompt. It will stay this way until I remove the USB drive from my system. After re-inserting the drive the 'Disks' application shows that partitions have been created and that Ubuntu has been written to the drive, however when attempting to boot from the drive I get taken straight to the gnome recovery terminal where it informs me that some executable is missing. I'm assuming here that the problem lies with Debian.
