Hi Gerd,

I'm curious about why you added the --reset-mbr option to the livecd-iso-to-disk command under the 'Preparing the USB stick' section of this page,

The earlier section, 'Run livecd-iso-to-disk script,, covers the destructive installation method, if needed.

I think that the page is long and needs to better structure the installation options to avoid confusion and get users more easily to the information they need. --Fgrose 19:08, 30 May 2010 (UTC)


I am not sure, but I think the --reset-mbr option is needed that it works.

I needed an USB stick to install Fedora 13 on a MiniPC. I followed the instructions in the How_to_create_and_use_Live_USB web page. After finishing that it seems that the USB stick is missing the master boot record. So I looked to the Internet again and found the web page: There I saw the same commands there, but with a litte difference. The command livecd-iso-to-disk there is used with --reset-mbr option. So I repeated the command livecd-iso-to-disk with the --reset-mbr option and it works.

I needed to repeat building the USB stick again and needed to repeat the installation to be sure that I have not made other mistakes.
