Cara Membuat Flash Disk Bootable (Linux)

Saat membuat flash disk bootable saya bisanya menggunakan aplikasi atau software under Windows. Tetapi kali ini saya ingin membuat bootable flash drive langsung dari linux.

Saya menemukan artikel di forum linux mint, seperti di bawah ini:

How to make the USB stick?

Using mintStick

mintStick is installed by default in Linux Mint.
Launch "USB Image Writer" from the menu, select your ISO image and your USB device and press "Write to device".

Using the Terminal

It is really simple. Go to a Terminal and type:

sudo dd if=~/Desktop/linuxmint.iso of=/dev/sdx oflag=direct  bs=1048576
Where '~/Desktop/linuxmint.iso' is the name and location of your downloaded image (located at the desktop in this example) and '/dev/sdx' is the target USB drive. If your system doesn't support 'oflag=direct', you can just leave it out as it is simply intended to speed up the process a bit.

If you don't know about the target USB drive path, run this command and figure out your destination drive.

sudo fdisk -l
 
 
Warning: Make sure to set the correct device path, as this process will delete all data that was on the specified device previously!

Remember, don't include an integer for the USB drive, e.g. '/dev/sdx1', as it would refer to the existing partition on that drive and not the drive itself.

When the USB has been properly created by 'dd', there should be an output similar to this:

sudo dd if=~/Desktop/linuxmint.iso of=/dev/sdb oflag=direct bs=1048576
706+1 records in
706+1 records out
740601856 bytes (741 MB) copied, 91.7024 s, 8.1 MB/s
 
 

Silahkan dicoba jika ingin membuat flash disk atau flash drive 8

Akhirnya Mencoba Nadia

Setelah berfikir cukup lama, saya akhirnya mencoba menggunakan Linux Mint 14 Nadia. Versi yang saya coba kali ini adalah yang MATE. Dengan desktop MATE ini serasa lebih ringan berjalan di netbook saya.

Meskipun saya menggunakan Linux Mint 14, saya masih belum menghapus Linux Mint 13 yang sebelumnya saya gunakan.
