The mkusb tool was developed to make it simpler and safer to create boot drives with the method to flash or clone an iso image or a compressed image file. It is using dd under the hood.The target is a mass storage device, often but not always a USB drive, sometimes an internal drive or an eSATA drive.
Installation is from PPA, so it is for Dog-based OS :
To clone an iso file on USB flash drive with mkusb, the iso file must be an isohybrid.
add-apt-repository must be enabled, and add this line :
refresh with apt update
and apt install mkusb mkusb-nox usb-pack-efi
usb-pack-efi is optional and used to have persistence.
Using a fresh install, you can use RemasterCow to make a sfs file, and use it later, as needed.
Used on Mintpup without problem. MKUSB will ask for grub-pc be installed if necessary to complete installation as happened with Mintpup.
