Hi,

A chap at the forums had failed to create the usb stick for installation
following several published procedures. But he succeeded with this one:

# cp image.iso /dev/sdX
# sync

And that's it! No more 'dd',

Well, dd is cp on steroids. There is no difference between "dd
if=image.iso of=/dev/sdX" and "cp image.iso /dev/sdX" as long as no
special alignment or block size is needed.
