As I experienced in past Ubuntu’s default startup disk creator is buggy and sometimes it’s doesn’t work , If you are struggling with Ubuntu 15.10’s startup disk creator ( default USB disk creator ) then Here are quick alternate way of creating Ubuntu USB drive from existing Ubuntu Installation . For Upgrading or recovering bricked (incomplete upgrade or broken OS etc ) system or for installing fresh Ubuntu anyway , in this tutorial I’ll show you how to make bootable Ubuntu USB key .
- Ubuntu ISO
- Minimum 8 GB USB stick ( pen-drive )
- existing Ubuntu or Mind Installation
Image Write Method
- Right Click On ISO
- choose open with > Image Writer
- choose Destination drive ( Carefully )
- click restore
- Enter your password if prompt
- wait while its restoring
Identify your USB disk label ( open disks application and choose disk then see on right device section ,
open terminal unmount the mounted partition
sudo umount /dev/sdb1 sudo dd if=ubuntu-16.04-desktop-amd64.iso of=/dev/sdb
/dev/sdb is your USB drive
