I have an system with Centos server installed on it. I want it to change into OpenSuse 13.2

Unfortunatly the usb drive i have created with ImageUSB is not recognized as bootable Device. Im not able to install Open Suse. Do you guys have some tips or tricks to help me?

  • What devices are visible in BIOS in BOOT sequence? – Jakuje Aug 31 '15 at 16:45
  • I added, usb and cd. Removed sata. I made a new DVD it did boot, but half way through installation the pc shutdown by itself. – Wessel s Aug 31 '15 at 20:11

Use a program called Rufus on windows to create the bootable USB. It has never failed me.

Just make sure to click the checkbox that says Create a bootable disk using ISO Image and select your Suse image.

Otherwise on CentOS you can install LiveUSB-Creator which is a CentOS/Fedora app which you can use to create a bootable USB. Just install using: yum install liveusb-creator

  • I tried doing that, weirdly it still doesnt recognize it when i try to boot my pc – Wessel s Aug 25 '15 at 19:47
  • have you tried it in another PC? can your PC boot any other image from a USB? – PHoBwz Aug 25 '15 at 21:05
