Boot Ubuntu 8.04 from USB hard drive (not flash)
I took an internal IDE hard drive (25GB)that had ubuntu 8.04 already installed on it out of an old pc.
I placed the hard drive into an enclosure so that it can connect via USB..
I connect the USB hard drive to a Dell Inspiron 1150 laptop via USB.
I want to boot ubuntu 8.04 from a usb hard drive
laptop is bootable from usb.
I changed the boot order in the BIOS setup to boot from USB first.
a couple of issues...
it does not boot to the graphical interface, its just boots
to the command line login prompt.
it keeps giving the error message over and over
b43/ucode5.fw not loaded or failed to load
please help, any advice would be appreciated...
