My mistake. This happens for not reading carefully enough.
The above command is not correct, as explained here:


Your problem is that the image needs to be dd'd to the whole device, not
a partition. This will, of course, wipe the entire contents of the device.


@ Ben

Thanks for stepping up here. It's the same recurring mistake!

@ Alex

I'm glad the problem is solved for you. I was going to suggest that you could also try booting from a cdrom (downloading a hybrid-iso image) But now that you have discovered the existence of live-manual maybe it would be a better idea to encourage you to build your own personal customized live image.

Best regards.
