Ubuntu: Burn Fedora ISO to USB Stick

For a complete burning techniques, refer Fedora: How to Create and Use Live USB

Startup disk creator only works for Ubuntu ISOs.

Use Disk Utility to get know of where your usb is mounted. In my case, it is /dev/sdc, and the name of downloaded Fedora iso file is there in the command line.

sudo dd bs=4M if=Fedora-Live-Desktop-x86_64-19-1.iso of=/dev/sdc

Note that dd is in bs mode, which means it write in BYTES at a time.

Aside (From USB img to HD)

dd can also copy iso image from USB to your hard disk:

sudo dd if=/dev/sdb of=usb-image.iso
