    isohybrid error

    so i fancied trying out some different distros and came across nitrux. i thought i could use it on my office laptop but when i try create the usb it asks if i want to burn as iso or DD. as iv'e not seen this before i searched google and it says its a isohybrid file.?

    whats the easiest way to create the usb here?

    thanks for any help

    If it is an isohybrid file, you can clone it (from the iso file to the USB pendrive) and you will get a bootable USB drive.

    Are you trying with Rufus in Windows? Or some other tool, maybe in Linux?



    (This link indicates that the distribution file is not an isohybrid file, not even an iso file that can create a live system. The linked page is from 2018, so it is probably obsolete (and there seems to be an isohybrid file now.))

    This link is more up to date and indicates that there is an isohybrid file, and that you can use cloning tools. In Ubuntu I would try mkusb but there are many alternatives, for example Disks (alias gnome-disks), that are safer than dd (nicknamed 'Disk Destroyer' or 'Data Destroyer') for this purpose.

    I wrote this a few days ago about Rufus ISO vs dd: https://askubuntu.com/a/1348460/43926

    Code:
    sudo dd if=hybrid.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=8M
    Change "sdX" to location of usb stick.
    Change "hybrid.iso" to location and name of iso
