[SOLVED]Mandriva 2010.2 usb image not booting !


Hi !
I got 'Mandriva 2010.2 One KDE Europe - Americas' live image with a tech magazine as an .iso. .
The live usb image created with Unetbootin on my Mint 10 of the iso won't boot. All I get a warning no operating system or something.
I tried the Mandriva-seed script but it gives an error
Quote:
GLib-GIO:ERROR:/build/buildd/glib2.0-2.26.0/gio/gdbusconnection.c:2270:initable_init: assertion failed: (connection->initialization_error == NULL)
Also tried the isotostick script too but it too won't work. Here is the error message
Quote:
Not verifying image...(no checkisomd5 in Ubuntu so skipping)!
./isotostick.sh: line 103: /lib/udev/vol_id: No such file or directory
USB filesystem must be vfat or ext[23]
Cleaning up to exit...
What should I do now ?

Please note that the file system of the usb drive is FAT32 and the md5sum of the iso is the same as that specified in the website !!

Try using dd to create the image

To install, first ensure the USB device is unmounted and then issue the following command:

Code:
 $ dd if=image.iso of=/dev/sd[x]
where ''image.iso'' is the path to the iso file and ''/dev/sd[x]'' is your USB device.

{{Warning|'''''Make sure to use /dev/sdx and NOT /dev/sdx1.''''' '''This is a very common error!'''}}

So does one press F12?

Then without the USB mounted, we type in the code? And what is the warning for?

To stress the importance of typing in a device name and not a partition name.
