Make ISO of bootable USB memory

I have a Bootable USB stick that we use to Boot our servers and then install RH, MySQL and our SW thru a Kixstart script. It works like a charm but now we are thinking of going Virtual and prepping Virtual RH servers under eg. VMware.

However, to have the same "Boot and Install" functionality we see no other solution then Booting a VMware machine from an ISO.

So, what I would like to do is to take the Bootable USB and make it into an ISO.

Any ideas?

  1. Use the dd command as root after unmounting the USB drive.

    Should you not know how, first learn how your USB stick is recognized by the system

    ls -l /dev/disk/by-id/*usb*

    Unmount it

    umount /dev/sdX

    Make the ISO

    dd if=/dev/sdX of=/path/to/your.iso
