This is a hybrid ISO, so you may use imagewriter or unetbootin for putting it on an USB stick.

Image Writer (for Windows) or install package “usb-imagewriter” (for linux).

(Tip: To restore the usb pen back to full usage, on windows download bootice from here , click on bootice.exe, choose “Parts Manage” and follow these instructions (windows and linux)).


64bit machines with (U)EFI may experience a crash during installation (when trying to install the bootloader).

It is therefore recommended to use imagewriter, as it does prepare another bootlader on the stick, which should make the ISO install fine.
