Booting off Usbstick
Setting up sysrescuecd on usbstick. I have followed instuctions on the Sysrescuecd website
Have sdb1 partitioned as a fat16 F.S. have all the folders and files copied over to usbstick, from the iso CD I made up, run 'syslinux /dev/sdb1' and 'sync' , but cannot get computer to boot off usbstick, set computers BIOS to boot off a Usb-Hdd
I didn't get any errors running syslinux or sync from SU.
It sounds like you may have missed a few things, hopefully you copied from the ISO images folders to the root of the USB memory. The BIOS boot order setting of USB-Hdd first is wrong, try setting the USB-floppy first in the boot order or if possible USB / Flash memory.
I tried booting from:
And each time the computer will locked up and won't boot any further, until I remove usbstick and reset and boot into OS.
You said putting files from CD in /dev/sdb1, a root directory, I have a vfat partition /dev/sdb1 isn't that considered as root ?
The files in the directories from the CD or ISO image are copied to the root of the partition;
