mic-image-writer(1) [debian man page]

MIC-IMAGE-WRITER(1)					      General Commands Manual					       MIC-IMAGE-WRITER(1)

NAME
mic-image-writer - Write a live image to a USB stick SYNOPSIS
mic-image-writer [options] [image file] DESCRIPTION
mic-image-writer is a simple yet very helpful tool, it can help you write a live image to a USB stick, it is safer than dd and has a good progress indicator, it has two work modes, console and GUI, you can explicitly use -c | --console and -g | --gui to force it to enter console or gui mode, by default, it will smartly decide this automatically. It just writes an image to the whole USB stick, so the original data on your USB stick will be overwritten, mic-image-manager has a more powerful GUI tool for this case, it can write a live image to a specified partition, the old data on that partition will keep intact. OPTIONS
-h, --help show this help message -c, --console Run in console mode -g, --gui Run in GUI mode EXAMPLES
Write a Molib live image to your USB disk: mic-image-writer your-2.1-final.img EXIT STATUS

NAME
mic-livecd-iso-to-disk - Convert a livecd image to a live USB image then write to a USB disk or partition SYNOPSIS
mic-livecd-iso-to-disk [--reset-mbr] [--noverify] [--overlay-size-mb <size>] [--home-size-mb <size>] [--unencrypted-home] <isopath> [usbstick device] <isopath> is your livecd image path name, [usbstick device] is optional, if not provided, it will detect automatically and ask you to select. DESCRIPTION
mic-livecd-iso-to-disk can convert a livecd image to a live USB image and write it to a USB disk or partition, it is different from mic- image-writer which is just a safer dd with progress bar. mic-livecd-iso-to-disk can detect all the removable USB disks and let you select one of them, if you didn't insert any USB disk, it will ask you to insert until a USB disk is available, it can decide if your USB disk need to be formated and if your USB disk has an appropriate partition for this livecd image, all the operations are interactive and have warnings f they will damage your old data on your USB disk. mic-image-manager has a GUI tool for it. OPTIONS
--reset-mbr Set MBR on your USB disk --noverify Don't verify your livecd image --overlay-size-mb Specify overlay size, the default size is 64 MB --home-size-mb Specify home size, the default is 0 EXAMPLES
Write a Molib live image to your USB disk: mic-livecd-iso-to-disk your-2.1-final.img EXIT STATUS
