I have read the Debian documentation, specifically http://wiki.debian.org/BootUsb and http://www.debian.org/CD/faq/#write-usb but they do not provide info on how to do it on Windows. So, how can I write a Debian image to a USD stick on Windows? Thanks in advance!

  • A friend of mine also said that running Linux from a thumbdrive can wreck your Windows HDD. Any proof to that claim?

UNetBootin might be able to do it (at least, it claims to be able to create a Debian USB drive).

UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu, Fedora, and other Linux distributions without burning a CD. It runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. You can either let UNetbootin download one of the many distributions supported out-of-the-box for you, or supply your own Linux .iso file if you've already downloaded one or your preferred distribution isn't on the list.

  • Nice. I'll have to check that out!
