livecd-tools created usb flash disk not booting
My DVD drive has gone bad and with new Fedora 14 just launched I decided to install the same through the usb flash disk.
First I used dd:
dd if=/home/prabhat/Download/Fedora-14-i386.iso of=/dev/sdb
It went on nicely and copied the iso nicely. But I could not boot with it.
Second time I tried livecd-tools:
livecd-iso-to-disk /home/prabhat/Download/Fedora-14-i386.iso /dev/sdb1
It went on nicely, and finally declared something like - usb disk is not live .... But here again when I tried to boot it says MISSING OS.
I checked the contents of the flash disk. It contained raw DVD iso image, one images directory, one syslinux directory. I checked the contents of the images directory, and I found it had the install.img.
And yes, the /dev/sdb1 is bootable.
What is the problem here ?
