usb key boot on laptop
I'd like to put linux onto a usb key and use it to boot my (windows) laptop.
I've tried with:
following several tutorials; the last one is this:
Unfortunately, none works.
The usb key is actually detected by the laptop BIOS; but when trying to boot, it just stands still for a couple of minutes on the first boot screen, then windows starts.
Could it be any hardware problem with my laptop, booting from a usb key?
My laptop is a Toshiba Tecra.
I can't use a boot floppy, since it has no floppy drive.
Did you remember to install LILO or GRUB on your USB key as a bootloader? In order to do this, your USB key will need a bootloader.
I have Puppy installed on USB. Works fine. Boots and loads really fast I use it as rescue on windows machines
Anyway, I'd try and install grub on the usbkey.
BTW, is this OK?
