USB installs only from internet

Post by fkienker » September 20th, 2017, 9:10 pm

On every release after Core 109, the USB drive installs *only* from the internet. To create the USB, I use rufus and the ISO image style of copying to the USB drive. I am able to install from the internet but I can not find a way to install a "CD style" installation option. This is a problem with very slow internet connections or when the installation is being done behind another firewall.

If I create a CD from the same ISO it all works as expected. Surely this is all just a foolish mistake on my part. Does anyone have any hints as to what I am doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!

The reason is rufus or better the configutation of rufus which write wrong data to the stick at default settings.
You need a sectorwise copy of the iso on the stick.
