Boot Ubuntu from USB Flash drive...no bios provision
Nifty if I can use USB flash to boot Ubuntu,
but with no bios provision
(I have bios options for USB HDD, USB CDROM and USB FDD but none if these work with USB flash),
it appears that CD ROM live disto is my only option,
hopefully using a USB flash drive for my personal files generated with the live distro operating from CDROM.
Any work arounds to suggest?
You can boot FDD, this may help with making the boot disks.
Pen Drive Linux
My notebook probably has the same age as maxsanders'. However, it has no CD nor floppy but I want to install Ubuntu 8.10 from USB pen drive. I made a bootable USB pen drive from Ubuntu 8.10 installed on a very new notebook used in my office. It was bootable with other machines in the office but the one of my own at home. What I get was messages from SysLinux and a "boot:" prompt. If an Enter key is pressed it returns "Could not find kernel image: linux" and another "boot:" prompt. When I boot GRUB from the local HD and go into the GRUB's command line, the USB pendrive blinks in response to the command "root (FD0)". Please help!
