I have a DVD with fedora 20 in it. My DVD drive doesn't work so I need to boot from an USB. I have copied the contents of the DVD into a USB drive and now how can I make this drive bootable?

  • You can always download the image. But then, having a dvd is the same thing. Feb 9, 2014 at 7:51

Throw away the DVD and delete the files you copied from it. Download a new ISO from fedora. Let Universal USB Installer do all the work. You just need to point it at your ISO file and your USB stick.

Try to use unetbootin.

http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

It is avaible for Linux, Windows and Mac.

First create image via dd command:

$ sudo dd if=/dev/cdrom of=cd.iso

Or if you have a directory that wish to create iso:

$ mkisofs -o cd.iso /your/directory

And then use unetbootin.
