You can only install an SD/USB image into an SD/USB flash drive. If you install other images to an SD/USB flash drive, then the image will not bootup correctly.
There are several ways to install the image into an SD card or USB storage:
- Etcher has a user-friendly GUI for beginners, and it is compatible with Mac, Windows and Linux. Simply select an image and it will automatically identify your flash drive and burn the image. (Recommended)
- Alternatively, utilise the
ddcommand from within the Ubuntu Terminal:
$ sudo dd if=/path/to/image of=/dev/sdX bs=8M
