    Write protect a thumb drive??

    Hi All,

    I used UNetbootin to put an .iso image of Clonezilla on to a USB thumb drive to boot from. So far so good, it all works.

    Problem is when I use "poweroff" at the command prompt, something is being written back to the thumb drive and it will not boot the next time I try. I get a "non-system disk" error.

    Is there some way I can prevent stuff being written back to the thumb drive so I can boot from it more than one time?

    Thanks
