I have a bootable flash disk which I want to use as a boot disk for my virtual machine. How do I make a virtual hard drive file out of the flash disk?




dd if=/dev/< flash disk > of=image.iso

  • I tried both /dev/sdb and /dev/sdb1, the resulting ISOs are neither mountable nor bootable. – Ron Oct 14 '11 at 9:29
