USB flash installation media

Using Linux:
Run the following command, replacing /dev/sdx with your drive, e.g. /dev/sdb. (do not append a partition number, so do not use something like /dev/sdb1):

dd bs=4M if=/path/to/bbqlinux.iso of=/dev/sdx && sync

Using Windows:
USBWriter: https://sourceforge.net/p/usbwriter/wiki/Documentation/
Win32DiskImager: https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/

Don't forget to label the USB-Drive "BBQLINUX", otherwise BBQLinux will not boot.

Re: USB flash installation media

Hi there!
I'm trying to boot BBQLinux from a Multiboot USB. (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Mu … _USB_drive). I success booting Tails, Bunsenlabs, Wifislax, Clonezilla, Manjaro, Kali... but the only one I lack is this one.
My grub.cfg for BBQLinux looks like:

 menuentry 'BBQLinux 2017-05 x86-64' {
 set isofile='/boot/iso/bbqlinux-2017.05.14-x86_64-cinnamon.iso'
 loopback loop $isofile
 linux (loop)/bbqlinux/boot/x86_64/vmlinuz archisolabel=BBQLINUX img_dev=$imgdevpath img_loop=$isofile earlymodules=loop
 initrd (loop)/bbqlinux/boot/x86_64/archiso.img

In the booting process I get the following results:

Any idea? Thanks!
