Once you have prepared the USB stick with dd, boot the computer using
the USB stick as the boot device.  There is no point, nor any need, to
mount the USB stick on the old OS. And above all else, don't mess it up
with fdisk.  You're using the USB stick to boot a completely new OS.  It
has nothing to do with the old OS.
