As i dont have any dvd r disk here, i wanted to install the iso in a usb stick (to boot with)
I use this command: 
dd if=mageia-dvd-1-x86_64.iso of=/dev/sdc1

After reboot it does nt boot in the usb, i putted the USB storage in 1st priority in bios boot menu without succes
I thought if is a problem of the folder in usb. I mean the files of the iso are nt in the first level of the root (in usb) but in a second folder:

[dglent at localhost media]$ cd 1-x86_64/x86_64/
[dglent at localhost x86_64]$ ls
install/  isolinux/  media/  misc/  pkg-1-cantine.idx  product.id  VERSION

the files require to be in the first level of the folder ?
