Need Help! Convert LiveCD to LiveUSB

Hi, am trying to make a liveUSB(my DVD drive run out monthes ago), I use this iso image:

I just cp the file in the iso into the usb, and cp the
L : \boot\x86_64\loader*.* into my usb, mv the isolinux.cfg into syslinux
and run with syslinux command to install the bootloader.
and boot with my usb drive,get Error: :frowning:

Loading device nodes with udev
Boot logging started on.

No devices matches MBR identifier: 0x5b265f15
reboot Exception: error console at Alt - F3/F4

Need Help !

I just use very simple command : dd , and make it.

dd if=/path/openSUSE-11.1-KDE4-Reloaded-LiveCD.x86_64-4.3.1-Build4.1.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M

the iso image downloaded from here:
openSUSE News » openSUSE 11.1 KDE4 Reloaded with Online Updates and KDE 4.3.1

hey there… im having the same problem to install opensuse on my netbook… i generate the usb live following the steps on Live USB stick - openSUSE (on windows), but it didnt work… i’ve got the same message “no devices matches mbr identifier”

i have no idea where or how to use this “dd” command… can someone please help me?


Also consider the use of UNetbootin for a live USB…

i tried, but it didnt work too =/

it gives me a similar error, but i dont remember the message

Using dd in windows
you should take care about which device is like the "/dev/sdb’ in linux instead of “/dev/sdb1”

so, usually, we “dd if=/path/file of=\?\Device\DRx bs=4M” the x here for 0 1 2 or 3

Before you do dd operation, you have to use diskpart to clean the whole usb drive
diskpart>list disk
for example, the disk 3 is your usb drive
diskpart>select disk 3
then go to dd ~ good luck

ofcourse.if you got GUI tool, thaz better.
