creating a bootable knoppix 6 usb
I have tried following the instructions at this link http://www.knoppix.net/wiki/USB_Based_FAQ. When I boot to the usb device grub starts loading then searches through the partitions on the device, then gives an error saying "could not mount disk to /mnt-system. Starting debugging Shell..." Has anyone had the same error or know what the problem is? Thanks in advance
It's alot easier than that bro,
I assume your usb is ext2 or ext3 with grub?
Please post your menu.lst (boot/grub/menu.lst) and what your computer is, etc.
and size of usb too
Here is my menu.lst
kernel /boot/isolinux/linux ramdisk_size=100000 init=/etc/init lang=us apm=power-off vga=791 initrd=minitr.gz nomce quiet BOOT_IMAGE=knoppix
My computer is a dell latitude d600, my stick is 2 gigs using 1 gig as the linux partition ext2 and the second partition is a vfat. PS my menu.lst is the same as the one from the link I posted earlier.
OK, I used this how-to for installing tinycore to usb using grubster and it works great.
( http://natureheals.info/linux/tiny/instau.html )
best results I got were by dis-connecting hd, then using livecd to install grub to ext2/3
usb as hd0,0
it'll boot on some pc's that don't boot from usb, just using plop bootmanager cd/floppy
that's how I boot mine on emachines testbed(no usb boot)
right now, on single partition ext3 4gb usb
I have tinycore2.0, pupflux412, grml2009medium, and Gallibox puplet
here's my menu.lst from usb(grml excluded-long)
works good too.:)
also, schaut, check your personal messages.
