• Newbie Question about dd


    i want to flash clonezilla-live-2.5.2-31-amd64.iso to my usb flash but i dont know the correct syntax

  • for your information i already tried the command given in archwiki dd bs=4M if=/path/to/archlinux.iso of=/dev/sdx status=progress oflag=sync
    and in my case
    sudo dd bs=4M if=/mnt/1.0TB/iso/clonezilla-live-2.5.2-31-amd64.iso of=/dev/sdc1 status=progress oflag=sync
    and before you say about sudo without it dont have permission to write in the device.

  • status=progress && sync
    

    is what use, and the most interesting part is that you choose the right device for of=/dev/… as dd is a killer to files 🙂

  • @joekamprad nope tux doesn’t work

  • @dreamtraveler
    Your dd target parameter syntax is incorrect. The of=/dev/sdc1 or wrong, it should be of=/dev/sdc without the trailing number.

    And the link @joekamprad mentioned contains all required instructions.
    You may however format the stick with gparted to fat32 instead of the command line formatting.

    System info commands:
    lsblk -fm
    lspci
    sudo blkid
    sudo fdisk -l

  • And as Joe said, don’t use osync. Use sync command after running dd.

    System info commands:
    lsblk -fm
    lspci
    sudo blkid
    sudo fdisk -l

  • @manuel oh ok one sec to try

  • This post is deleted!
  • @manuel nope doesn’t work now i get a black screen with a cursor blinking and it doesn’t boot

  • @dreamtraveler
    If I were you, I’d check clonezilla web pages for instructions. Since it really has nothing to do with Antergos software.

    System info commands:
    lsblk -fm
    lspci
    sudo blkid
    sudo fdisk -l

  • i am pretty sure that that if i burn a totally different iso it would do the same and right now i am gonna test that theory

  • @dreamtraveler
    I’ve always “burned” my USB stick with this kind of command:

    dd status=progress bs=4M if=/path/to/isofile.iso of=/dev/sdX && sync
    

    and you need to give your proper “if” path, and change X to the letter of the stick.
    Command

    lsblk -f
    

    helps you find the stick letter.

    System info commands:
    lsblk -fm
    lspci
    sudo blkid
    sudo fdisk -l

  • And the stick must be unmounted while burning it … 🙂

    System info commands:
    lsblk -fm
    lspci
    sudo blkid
    sudo fdisk -l

    @manuel also doesnt work tested it systemrescuecd iso

  • @manuel Guess what was the problem… THE FUCKING USB HUB!

  • @dreamtraveler
    Oh yeah, not an easy-to-find reason.
    A common advice is to try another USB port, and sometimes to check if there are any unnecessary USB hubs involved.
    Unfortunately this time nobody suggested them …

    But great that you found the solution! 🙂

    System info commands:
    lsblk -fm
    lspci
    sudo blkid
    sudo fdisk -l

  • and i offer etcher again as the most easy tool to burn iso to usb !
