My Advice

You can also go the tuxboot/rufus route (google it) but honestly why would you want to. There is an ifixit guide for using the rufus route also here: Linux Install Media Creation (USB)

PS: There is a debian packaged installation file and instructions for its use here:

Looks towards the bottom of the page under the "Installers" heading.
