How do I create an Endless USB stick from Linux?

Download the ISO image file for the Endless OS version you would like to try. Your USB stick needs to be at least as large as the ISO image file.

If you use Endless OS or the GNOME desktop:

  • Insert your USB stick
  • Launch GNOME Disks
  • Select your USB stick in the sidebar on the left
  • Click the ☰ menu on the top-right, and select “Restore Disk Image…”
  • Select the Endless OS ISO image file
  • Click “Start Restoring”
  • Note that all files on your USB stick will be erased.

If you prefer to use the command line:
On Endless OS, you can write the ISO image to your USB stick on the command line using our eos-write-image script. On other Linux systems, you can use dd to write the ISO image directly to your USB stick.
Note that Endless OS ISO images are not currently compatible with tools like UNetbootin and Universal USB Creator.
