How to install endeavour os?

im switching from linux mint to endeavour if possible.

how do you install it? i tried using poweriso to burn to a dvd. didnt work. same with usb flash drive. didnt work.

Assuming endeavouros-release.iso is the iso file and /dev/sdb is your flash drive.

sudo dd bs=4M if=/path/endeavouros-release.iso of=/dev/sdb status=progress && sync

mine is scandisk.

the iso is cassi nova. at least for me.

use the name of the iso in @eznix example
the latest Enos

sudo dd bs=4M if=./Endeavouros_Cassini_Nova-03-2023_R2.iso of=/dev/sdb status=progress && sync

you want to make sure of where your are burning the iso to so change /dev/sdb to the appropriate drive ie… /dev/sdc or to what ever the actual drive is for your thumbdrive.

If you’re on mint, mintstick will work nicely.

The iso for Endeavour - just make sure it’s the newest one available from our downloads page.

i have burn the iso to scandisk.

i found the name of the dev/sdb, it’s dev/sda.

it keeps saying ffailing to open.

Then you

  1. probably didn’t set it up correctly.

  2. didn’t disable secure boot in your firmware.

If you’re on Mint - I believe it works with secureboot enabled. Also if you’re on Mint - you will want to write the iso with mintstick. It’s a very very simple process with nearly 100% success rate.

If you’re on Windows/Mac - I usually use the Fedora media writer and follow the process to add my own iso.

For Windows:

i do have secure boot disabled. it sounds like ministick maybe what i need for this distro. interesting how certain distros work, lol.

Mintstick is literally just Linux Mint’s own iso flasher. You can use any of them, I just assumed you had it since it was theirs.

Popsicle, gnome disks, and many more work in Linux, there’s tons of options.

that may work but the command I gave you works. I have never had to run a third party program to burn Linux to a usb. I have used that same command for several years with out issue. I would suspect your having a issue either do to a bad thumbdrive or your not doing something right.

The best tool for install an OS from an iso is ventoy, you burn ventoy to a USB drive and you can boot any iso searching it by presing F2 key.

Ventoy is great, I use it all the time, load up a bunch of ISOs and choose to boot whichever ISO I want.

With that said, you can also use balena etcher, I’ve used it many times. You can just download it and launch it to burn the ISO onto the USB.

Balena Etcher is probably the worst program for this purpose, I advise not using it.

Here is a 3 year old rant about it, as relevant today as always:

Got it, wont recommend it anymore.
