There was at one time, instructions on how to copy the USB inage onto a USB stick. I can't find them now.

I tried "dd if=ZeroShell-3.4.0-USB.img.gz of=/dev/sdc" and it said it copied 244Mb over but, I can't get it to boot.

Anyone have instructions?

I did the following:

Downloaded ZeroShell-3.4.0-USB.img.gz file. I unzipped it using 7-zip utility. I received .img file.

After that, I used https://rufus.akeo.ie utility to create bootable USB from that file.

Eh, I was hoping for a Linux solution but, your method worked like a charm... Any port in a storm- Thanks.

I have also used only windows solution, with physdiskwrite:

Maybe you need to unzip before dd in linux?
