How do I install puppy linux on a netbook with a 2GB NAND HD without a boot menu?


It currently has Windows CE 6.0
I am trying to install the newest Puppy OS
But there is no boot menu or boot option screen at all
When it loads it simply says "loading OS image" then it opens Win CE 6.0

I linux can be installed on static HD devices like iPAD but how is it done?
I have Puppy OS on an 8 gb USB drive.

you have to go into bios and tell it to boot from usb drive I do not know how to get to your bios set up screen or key stroke to tell the computer to boot from another media it is up to you to learn your machine then find out if you can boot from a usb drive and if you can it is up to you to learn how to create a bootable usb puppylinx image on that drive. after you do all that then ask the question.

What is the make/model of your netbook. Some devices are not PC compatible and do not have a BIOS.

You can't would be my guess. The flash needs a eeprom erase program. You'd need to know more about how the system works to guess it correctly.
