  Preparing Files for USB Memory Stick Booting should not mention "cp"

Status in installation-guide package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  In the AMD64 docs, [4.3. Preparing Files for USB Memory Stick
  guide/amd64/ch04s03.html) prominently lists this command as a way of
  writing the image to a USB stick: "# cp debian.iso /dev/sdX".  The
  result was something that my Dell Inspiron 7577 did not recognize as a
  UEFI boot device.

  I fell back to creating the USB installer on Windows, using the advice
  in https://ubuntu.com/tutorials/tutorial-create-a-usb-stick-on-windows

  I don't know what a successful technique for creating a USB installer
  using Linux is, but I do know that the "cp" method given in this
  documentation page is not it.
