That’s why in this post I’ll show you alternative ways to create a Bootable Linux key without going through the default Ubuntu 15.10 boot disk creation tool (default USB disk creator). This tutorial will help you create an image of your Linux operating system to restore it afterwards with a USB key. Let’s start our mood:
