Bug#837073: installation-guide: '4.3 Preparing Files for USB Memory Stick Booting' seems self contradictory

Michael Gentry
Source: installation-guide
Severity: normal

Hello,

The first sentence of the installation guide's section on USB stick
creation [1] is "To prepare the USB stick, you will need a system
where GNU/Linux is already running and where USB is supported."

I'm not sure exactly what this is trying to say, but I think it needs
rephrasing - it seems wrong on the face of it, and contradicts the
advice below to use win32diskimager on other platforms.
