    Write .raw os'image in USB pendrive. How to?

    Hi, I downloaded the ChromeOS, the file that I downloaded is in .raw format, the site tells me that I must put the .raw image in the USB pendrive using ImageWriter (the site refers to the windows version).

    The problem is that the ImageWriter's version for Ubuntu cannot see files in .raw format, but only in .img format.

    I searched the internet how to put the OS'image this format inside the USB from Ubuntu but unfortunately I haven't found anything.

    Does anyone know how to do it?

    Hi

    You could try using dd but you must be careful with that command because if you choose the wrong destination drive......

    The only reason i say this is because i have done this in the past myself.

    I do have to say i don't know if it will work. I have never used .raw files.

    Kind regards
