**WARNING** Do not run the dd command in comment #200 **WARNING**
The command should read "dd if=<iso name>
of=/mountpoint/for/ext4/partition/filename bs=512MB count=1"
Pointing of= to anything in /dev is wrong, and you should always be very
careful when using dd. Though unlikely, trying to follow the
instructions in comment #200 as currently written could lead you to
accidentally overwrite the beginning of your ext4 partition with the
contents of the iso, making all of the files on that partition difficult
to recover, and overwriting many of them permanently.
