Warning: This post has not been modified for over 2 years. For technical posts, make sure that it is still relevant.

While there are nice graphical tools like Etcher, what is almost always a constant is the tool dd. Therefore, for future reference I’ll just paste the dd command I use to make ISO images.

sudo dd bs=4M if=image.iso of=/dev/sdX status=progress oflag=sync

Alternatively you can use pv

pv image.iso > /dev/sdX
