I am a windows guy, but for mining I have used Linuxcoin and BAMT. One thing other than being a complete ZERO when it comes to Linux that pisses me off is every now and then...more often then not, I have to reimage my usb key. I reboot and all of a sudden nothing works. USB is corrupt so I need to start from scratch. I have tried various different USB keys and eventually I have to redo the image and fix the config files.
I have read that I am not the only person to have these problems.
What is the best way to save your USB key to and image and reimige it when it does eventually get corrupt?
