Create a bootable USB key

If you are currently running GNU/linux on your machine:

[Important]As root

With the help of fdisk, find out where your USB key is located:

fdisk -l

Then by using the command dd, create a bootable key:

dd if=NuTyX_x86_64-10.2.iso of=/dev/sdX status=progress

The sdX value is the one that you have previously found using fdisk.

If you are using Windows, it is easier to burn the ISO image onto a CD.
