Please note, that Debian advises not using "unetbootin" for this task. It can cause difficult-to-diagnose problems with booting and installing, so is not recommended.

Is there a question here ? Or what is the point in this, Is it supposed to be a "How to" of some sorts ?
And yes, both the first method, and the method in the https://www.debian.org/CD/faq/#write-usb work, I don't use the

I assumed the original post is a"How to" because it's titled "How to Debian installer USB." The title is a little ambiguous, but easy enough to figure out after reading the post. I simply posted the instructions that I follow.

Ok,that is what I thought as well, I just threw in the part about unebootin because often we do get people that say they used it and don't understand why it does not work.
