Bootable USB Utility

Where is there a Bootable USB utility for Q4OS? I migrated here from Linux Mint and yes it has a utility! Now I'm attempting to create a Bootable USB but cannot find a Utility. Please not the command line in a terminal because this does not tell me how to take the Q4OS ISO I downloaded and install it on a USB so I can use this because my Acer Netbook doesn't have a CD or DVD drive and I have to use USB.
By rights I should be able to go to Q4OS software installer and get a utility? It is this or reinstall Linux Mint so I can make a bootable USB installer for Q4OS?

Re: Bootable USB Utility

In reality the biggest problem I had was not knowing the name of the utilities and where to find them and for a number of years I have been using Rufus or whatever is on Ubuntu. After lengthy googling I found Belana Etcher and it works for all operating systems. I needed a bootable USB installer to test Plasma vs Trinity because I have a 2008 Acer Aspire One AO533 with a maximum of 2 gb of RAM and a pathetic Atom N455 1.66mhz processor and as it was this netbook had a hard time handling Windows 7 Starter with 1gb of RAM it originally came with.
Windows 10 is slow but usable, Ubuntu became slower than Windows 10 so I moved on to Linux Mint with a bit of improvement utility after being updated to newer versions, it is more demanding and minimum recommended requirements are 2gb of RAM and a 2ghz processor so here I am now trying out Trinity 32 bit from Plasma. Plasma is a bit faster but I will try Trinity. Yes this Atom is 64 bit but with 2gb of RAM I may as well try Trinity 32 bit.
If I have the information I can use CLI but at the present time I prefer being a GUI slave.

Some suggestions here, for example.


Q4OS machines: [Samsung R519 - Pentium T4200 2.0 GHz - 4 GB RAM - 500 GB SSD] & [Sony Vaio - Pentium P6000 1.87 GHz - 8 GB RAM - 500 GB SSD]
