Re: Creating live USB keys in Windows

Hi!

So, I wrote some code that will install a Fedora Live ISO onto a USB
stick, in Windows.

It automatically detects all removable drives, finds your ISO, extracts
it to your USB key, tweaks the syslinux.cfg, and installs the
bootloader.

From a user perspective, using it is pretty simple:
- download fedora
- download and extract livecd-iso-to-usb.zip
- drag fedora iso into directory
- double click 'livecd-iso-to-usb.exe'
- ...profit!

It has worked great during all of my testing, and Jesse seemed to have
good luck with it today, but we definitely need more people to try it
out before we can start recommending it to users.

Very cool.  Thanks.

I remember a while back when I last used that other OS, that it was a pain to do something as simple as burn an iso image to cdrom*. If that is still the case, and if there is an OSS solution to that, perhaps it could all be bundled in the 'fedora burning tool for windows' package. Just a thought...

* yes, most users will have some 3rd party solution they are familiar with, but I still think it would be cool to not depend on such things.

There is a Windows version cdrecord available here[1], there dont need the cygwin runtime

this could also be a possibility, it is nice for the windows users the also exist some nice open source software programs they can use in the dark world of closed source software :)
