    Default Make bootable USB stick from DVD

    My chromebook has no DVD drive. Is it possible to create a bootable USB stick from one of my installation DVD's? Perhaps using "dd"?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, of course. Just 'dd' the dvd device to the usb stick device.

    Even simpler: install SUSE Image Writer and it will do it for you.

    Thanks everyone. "dd" did the trick. But I'm still struggling to install a bootable openSUSE on my Chromebook. Those Google software engineers did a good job at protecting their profits. I'm impressed.

    I assume you have put the Chromebook into developer mode.
