# Write image files to USB/SD using DD command

`dd if=/path/to/archlinux.iso of=/dev/sdx status=progress bs=4M && sync`

Run the following command, replacing `/dev/sdx` with your drive, e.g. `/dev/sdb`. (Do not append a partition number, so do not use something like `/dev/sdb1`)

Tip: Find out the name of your USB drive with `lsblk`. Make sure that it is not mounted.
