Creating usb thumbdrive install with dd vs Rufus (Windows)


As I’m not that well versed in isohybrid image and all…

When I try to burn the latest EndeavourOS iso via dd from a live linux distro, namely GParted by doing this (as root) :

dd if=/path/to/iso of=/dev/sdx bs=4096 && sync

And then try to boot from it, it fails…

Whereas, burning the same iso from a Windows 11 box with Rufus in “iso image” succesfully boot the live image…

Can someone tells me what I’m missing here ? i hate to have to use Windows to burn iso for an install on a blank drive…instead of dd…

Thank you !!

how old is the gparted live iso?

does it show any message when it fails to boot?

Also add the status=progress flag to see if its giving you any issues during the write.

dd if=/path/to/iso of=/dev/sdx bs=4096 status=progress && sync
