Cannot burn an Native image (img)

Post by Elluminatus »

Hello,

I have a problem to burn a unzipped img from a native Image of Dietpi. Image Burner told me this is an unsupported and damaged img file. Can you help me please...

(invalid or unsupported image file format)

What is the procedure to bring this image on the intern hdd of the native PC System? Or is it possible to get an iso Version to burn a DVD?

Greetings Elluminatus

UEFI system, use rufus: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issue ... -336522021

BIOS/CSM, you can use win32diskimager or even dd in linux. Write the image directly to the HDD you want to use (eg: sata <> USB converter)
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.
Donating is the easiest – you can use PayPal or become a DietPi patron.

This can burn an .img to usb (from a windows distro of course)
https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/

If you have it in .iso format use

My personal favourite for Windows: https://rufus.ie/
Tiny but fully featured.
On Linux: dd ;)
