Create USB installer from ISO in Linux

Command:
dd if=FreeBSD-11.0-RELEASE-amd64-dvd1.iso of=/dev/sdg

This equivalent makes a nice progress bar (requires “yum install pv dialog”):
(pv -n FreeBSD-11.0-RELEASE-amd64-dvd1.iso | dd of=/dev/sdg bs=128M conv=notrunc,noerror) 2>&1 | dialog –gauge “Running dd command (cloning), please wait…” 10 70 0
