Create live USB image of OS


Today I have pointed out that my liveUsb-creator has been damaged.But I have to give my friend live USB image of fedora 16.So I was searching the python code which can convert the DVD image to live USB image. At last I got image-usb-stick.Then I extracted the code.After doing some following steps live USB image has been created—

1. [Biraj@ASUS ~]$ cd abock-image-usb-stick-f3b1002/
2. [Biraj@ASUS abock-image-usb-stick-f3b1002]$ chmod a+x ./image-usb-stick
3. Insert the USB storage device for making it a Live USB device.
4. [Biraj@ASUS ~]$ sudo ./image-usb-stick path_of_the_live_image.iso

Example :

[Biraj@ASUS abock-image-usb-stick-f3b1002]$ chmod a+x ./image-usb-stick
[Biraj@ASUS abock-image-usb-stick-f3b1002]$ sudo ./image-usb-stick /media/Masti/os/Fedora_16_i386.iso
