    Can't make a boot drive on Ubuntu for F25

    Hey guys! I'm wanting to go back to Fedora(used it a while back) but I can't even make a boot drive. I used Unetbootin on Ubuntu 16.04 and tired to find a way to get Fedora's boot drive creator. Is there some secret now to creating one on Ubuntu? It was super easy when I did it a while back, F19/F20 I think it was.

    I REALLY want Fedora again! I'm about to build a new workstation(i7 6800K, GTX 1060, etc. :-D) and planned on putting F25 on there. So... how can I create a F25 bootable USB on Ubuntu 16.04?


    Thanks guys!

    The easiest way is from the command line with dd. Something like dd if=~/Downloads/fedora-isoname.iso of=/dev/sdx bs=4M
    just put in the actual locationof the iso you download and the actual address of the usb and it should work.

    Unetbootin is broken on Ubuntu, at least. Try etcher..

    https://etcher.io/
    I used to miss my wife but then my aim improved.
