problem with puppy not booting up from USB on liveboot


Hell there guys.
I was trying to do a live boot of puppy on my new laptop.
I installed puppy to a flashdrive via unetboot in.

i did the normal BIOS screen but up but then it said as puppy was trying to boot up "pup-431.sfs not found"
but when i booted up windows and i was able to find the file on my flashdrive.

might it be a corrupt puppy file?

Is the filename correct?
Is it lowercase?
You could try to download the iso again, and do a md5 checksum

Well I've had this puppy iso for quite a while now and i've never had a problem with it.
I have transferred it quite a lot though, usb to hdd, hdd to usb etc.

would that have possibly corrupted the file?
