When that happens, Windows always seems to damage the image on the USB stick. What the heck is up with that?
Hi Hugh, I have to work on THAT operating system whose name I shall not mention A LOT. Not that I want to. My customer base is mostly small businesses and they can not run their businesses without THAT operating system as THAT operating system was won the applications wars for small businesses, the one that is slow, expensive, and riddled with bugs. And THAT operating system puts a roof over my head and food on my table. If I had enough Linux customers, I would dump THAT operating system in a second. If I come home from a days work and am in a crabby mode, it is because I have been working on THAT operating system, especially the one where they CAN'T COUNT. Linux is just plane fun to work on, especially Fedora (RHEL and clones, on the other hand, I won't get into). I use Live USB sticks to rescue computers with THAT operating system ALL-THE-TIME. And what you describe happens to me on a frequent basis. I have taught myself never to insert a Linux based flash drive into THAT operating system which is running. And when I forget, I have a spare. It is a total pain in the ... When I get back to my Linux based office, I dd the ISO over the corrupted stick. When I have a stick with something custom on it, I will dd the stick to my hard drive for later over writing when it gets corrupted. And be careful with THAT operating system, shutdown and reboot are suspend and not shutdown. You have to turn "Fast Boot" off and do a real shutdown to get it to take.
