Fedora Live USB Creator Question: Error comes up: "Missing Operating System"
OK, I don't know if this is the right part of the forum, but I'm new so I'll try to do this right. The Problem:
I have already ran Fedora Live USB Creator and that is supposed to mean I have Fedora Linux on my USB Drive. It is a 4GB PNY Mini Attache. So when I reboot my computer and click F10 (My key for BOOT Settings) I have the option to choose the USB to boot from. I do that, but an error message comes up saying "Operating System Not Found Operating System Not Found Missing Operating System". Also, when I try F2 (My Key for BIOS Settings) I go there and try to get to the USB Thing but when I click enter on it nothing happens, same goes when I try the other boot options. Please help!
Thanks again, FedoraLinuxLover!
Now, I just installed fedora 11 to my stick yesterday and it was flawless
What Distro are you using, Fedora ?
did you install from livecd or your hd install?
tell us the steps you took to installing it?
did you look in the usb and see if anything is there?
usb is fat32 or ext2/3?
Well, it is version 11.
And the USB Creator version is 3.7.1.
I installed from liveCD.
I installed USB Creator.
I clicked use existing iso and chose the iso Installed earlier.
The Stuff was in the USB.
USB is Fat32.
*Hey can I uninstall the thing? I might try uninstalling and re installing from a ISO on it instead of an existing one. But I forgot how to uninstall stuff from my USB Device.
Thanks, Fedora Linux Lover
please list whats in the usb?
a folder named LiveOS?
a folder named syslinux?
does the syslinux.cfg look like that?
or you can't open it in windows?
if windows can't open syslinux.cfg boot the fedora cd and open it in fedora
menu label Boot
append initrd=/syslinux/initrd0.img root=UUID=45674521-df38-44d1-8f8d-ec264870efbe rootfstype=ext3 rw liveimg overlay=UUID=45674521-df38-44d1-8f8d-ec264870efbe quiet rhgb
Ok here's the stuff:
initrd0.img*,isolinux.bin*,isolinux.cfg*,memtest*,splash.jpg*(is a PNG file with a incorrect file extension, should I change it?),splash.xpm (.gz file)*,vesamenu.c32*vmlinuz0*,
syslinux~boot (when I try to open, it says it is invalid as a Security Catalog)*,initrd0.img*,isolinux.bin*,memtest*,splash.png (I renamed after stuff wasn't working, before it was a incorrect file with a incorrect file extension (.jpg) )*,syslinux.cfg*,vesamenu.c32*,vmlinuz.0
