Program to create Q4OS bootable pendrive

Hello,

Do you guys know of a good program, to run on Windows, to create a bootable Q4OS pendrive?

I use "LiLi USB Creator", but I would like to consider other options...

Re: Program to create Q4OS bootable pendrive

I wanna say rufus worked for me when I had used it (this was a while ago w/ Orion installer not live edition).  Not sure if it works with live version or with Scorpion.

If it aint broke, why fix it - beware Rufus will wipe your entire HDD

Re: Program to create Q4OS bootable pendrive

Shouldnt be any issues with Rufus and the pendrive, as we are assuming hes wiping the pendrive to make a bootable drive anyway.

Re: Program to create Q4OS bootable pendrive

I've been using rufus for about 3 yrs now and never had any problems with it, I have found it to be one of the most reliable ways to burn an image to usb sticks (in Windows).

Re: Program to create Q4OS bootable pendrive

I actually tried it after you mentioned it Dai and have been using it ever since.

Re: Program to create Q4OS bootable pendrive

Im one of those rarities, as I dont use USB pendrives that much. I do have external hard drives but typically keep very important files on DVD.  I use live cd/dvds more than pendrives given the wide variety/age of hardware I deal with, they tend to have less issues.

Re: Program to create Q4OS bootable pendrive

I rarely use CD/DVD media any more, only a couple of cases where the systems couldn't boot from usb (three systems in last 2 years) and I normally just dismantle them for spares as they are pretty old systems anyway.

Re: Program to create Q4OS bootable pendrive

Typically I run into bios issues even with some newer systems, and clients who have issues with me using USB drives on their systems.
Given my retrogaming habits I still use cd/dvd all the time.

Re: Program to create Q4OS bootable pendrive

I have had so many issues in the past with the reliability of cd's/dvd's when they get a little scratch or simply don't want to read on a particular drive so I pretty much gave up using them and have quite a stash of usb sticks now and I have only ever had one of them go bad on me in about 8 years, I even have an old 512Mb mp3 player (very old one) that I simply reformatted and can use that as a boot stick for smaller images, I'm not sure why or how it works, but I was stuck for a stick some years ago and tried using it and it worked! That one save me quite a lot of hassle at the time.=)

Re: Program to create Q4OS bootable pendrive

Its interesting how peoples experiences influence how they approach tech issues. Ive had so many issues with USB with various hardware that I continue to rely on cd/dvd but I dont avoid USB. Thats tainted though by the amount of older hardware Ive dealt with as I do use USB drives as I said as backup drives.

Pretty cool how you used that mp3 player. I keep my older laptop drives as portable USB drives and have always used my old hard drives as external desktop storage.
