UEFI and BIOS bootability of Fedora media
Here are some general considerations related to which modes a given Fedora medium (CD, DVD, USB stick) will be bootable in.
- Pretty much any Fedora medium of any kind should always be BIOS-bootable.
- Any Fedora image correctly written to a disc (not a USB stick) should be UEFI-bootable.
- A Fedora USB stick written with one of the direct write methods described at How_to_create_and_use_Live_USB#quickstarts should be UEFI-bootable.
- A Fedora USB stick written with livecd-iso-to-disk --format --reset-mbr --efi should be UEFI-bootable: for more details, seeHow_to_create_and_use_Live_USB#litd.
- A Fedora USB stick written with How_to_create_and_use_Live_USB#luc ought to be UEFI-bootable in many cases, but this method is not as reliable as direct write or livecd-iso-to-disk, and can depend on the format of the stick prior to running the tool.
- A Fedora USB stick written with any other method, including third-party utilities such as UNetbootin, is quite likely to not be UEFI-bootable. If you wish to do a UEFI-native installation, are using a USB stick as your medium, and cannot persuade it to boot in UEFI-native mode, you may need to check How_to_create_and_use_Live_USB for instructions on writing a reliably UEFI-bootable USB stick.
I was looking for Details on using the "dd" method
If you're using UEFI, do not currently use Unetbootin with Debian iso files due to a bug.
Install Unetbootin from the repositories
sudo apt-get install unetbootin
Start it, select an ISO file or a distribution to download, select a target drive (USB drive or Hard Disk), select persistence if you wish, then reboot once done. If your USB drive doesn't show up, reformat it as FAT32.
See this detailed description.
mkusb - dd image of iso file to USB device safely
Simple, safe, high success rate
The mkusb tool was developed to make it simpler and safer to create boot drives with the method to flash or clone an iso image or a compressed image file. It is using dd under the hood.The target is a mass storage device, often but not always a USB drive, sometimes an internal drive or an eSATA drive.
Cloning an iso file to a mass storage device makes a boot drive, provided it is a hybrid iso file, post-processed with isohybrid. See
This method with dd has a high success rate.
[This is the situation now with the new Ubuntu 14.10 version] mkusb is particularly good for pre-release testing and new releases, when the standard tools like Startup Disk Creator might not be ready (if the configuration of the booting has been changed since the previous release).
Quick start manual and mkusb PPA
The fastest way to start making USB boot drives is to install the mkusb PPA, install and update the mkusb package like all the other program packages. See this link
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mkusb/ppa # and press Enter
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mkusb
