    Default Method used to write ISO files to thumbdrive

    Hi All,
    What method do you guys use to write an ISO to a USB thumb drive in Windows? I have been using Rufus and it seems to work well. Is there another method that I am missing?

    Thanks.

    Sorry I don't use windows any-more. What happens if you right click on the iso?

    Windows will present you with the option of burning it to a CD or mounting it but not write to a thumb drive.

    I use https://www.rmprepusb.com/. It's a bit of all in one tool as it will write any type of drive.

    Rufus: https://rufus.ie/

    Because OSS: https://github.com/pbatard/rufus

    I find it shocking that an Untangle employee would be using a closed source option for this... strange...

    But, the point still stands. Everyone that's used to installing operating systems has some sort of utility that converts ISO images into USB keys. ISO installation images are universal in that regards.

    Dang I forgot to mention, you can use dd to write iso images just like the old bin files

    Code:
    dd bs=4M if=ngfw-untangle-16.0.1-amd64.iso of=/dev/sdb
    So you don't need anything but your brain if you're wanting to make a USB on linux! But you do need to know what dev flag your USB stick lives on, and the path to the iso file.

    If you want a GUI, https://unetbootin.github.io/

    I haven't tried with Untangle yet, but recently started using Ventoy. It's the whip so far.
