Tradition dd not creating USB installer.

I downloaded the DVD version of Fedora-14 (64bit) and ran the following command to make the bootable USB flash drive(8 GB)

dd if=Fedora-14.iso of=/dev/sdd (sdd is my USB flash drive)
It should create bootable usb disk but its not working while I try to boot the system with this USB stick. System just stands blank and nothing apears on the screen.

Ubuntu Live Images from the same USB drive works fine on the same machine.

What may be causing the problem. I know there is live-usb creator programme that can do the same job but this is the easiest method available when you do not have much resources.

can anybody point what is the problem?

Try using a live usb version. DVD version is not meant as live boot.

Re: Tradition dd not creating USB installer.

My understanding is that the dvd image isn't a hybrid image, such as the live images are. So, live-usb creator and the usual dd won't work.

Here is a tutorial and discussion for F12
