The last time I booted from USB was back in 2006. Ever since, I keep failing at making live usb bootables.
I tried getting Fedora 18, Ubuntu, and ton of other distros to boot from USB and never ever succedded. I tried making bootable usb from Fedora 17, 18, Mac OSX etc. I tried different USB keys.
Every single fu** time I get either kernel panic, or bunch of meaningless stupid errors when trying to boot. I am sick of buying cd/dvd's to be able to boot stuff, I want to be able to use my damn usb.
This is so frustrating. WTF am I doing wrong? I am going to explode right now. Spent hours with this problem.
sudo dd if=Downloads/myiso.iso of=/dev/myusb bs=1M && sync
EDIT: The reason for my failed attempts seemed to be corrupt hardware. I bought new memory stick, issue is gone.
