<p>If your version of <span class="application">GNOME Disks</span> is old
and has no [[!img lib/emblem-system.png alt="System" class="symbolic" link="no"]]
button, you have to [[!toggle id="dd" text="install an intermediary Tails
using the command line"]].</p>
[[!toggleable id="dd" text="""
Install an intermediary Tails using the command line
1. Take note of the *device name* of the first USB stick as displayed in the
right pane. The device name should be something like `/dev/sdb`,
`/dev/sdc`, etc.
<div class="caution">
<p>If you are not sure about the device name, you should stop proceeding or
you risk overwriting any hard disk on the computer.</p>
1. Open a terminal.
1. Execute the following command, replacing `[tails.iso]` with the path to the
ISO image that you want to install and `[device]` with the device name
found in step 1.
dd if=[tails.iso] of=[device] bs=16M && sync
Here is an example of command to execute, yours is probably different:
dd if='/home/amnesia/tails-2.0.iso' of=/dev/sdc bs=16M && sync
<div class="tip">
<p>If you are not sure about the path to the ISO image or if you get a <span
class="guilabel">No such file or directory</span> error message, you can
first type <code>dd</code>, followed by a space, and then drag and drop the
icon of the ISO image from a file browser onto the terminal. Doing so should
insert the correct path to the ISO image in the terminal. Then complete the
command and execute it.</p>
1. If no error message is returned, Tails is being install on the USB stick.
The installation takes a few minutes.
You can now continue with the next step and [[Open these instructions on
another device|usb#intermediary]].
1. In the <span class="guilabel">Restore Disk Image</span> dialog, click on the file selector button and
choose the ISO image that you downloaded earlier.
