GParted and Pendrive


Hello,

Not really new but first time posting to this forum.
I followed Boot iso from usb and this works fine with most iso files used ultimate boot cd and the test iso they gave worked fine. where i run into problems is with the Gparted iso.

if i follow
title G-Parted
find -–set-root /gparted.iso
map /gparted.iso (hd32)
map -–hook
root (hd32)
chainloader (hd32)

here is what i get when i boot
error 62: The number of heads must be specified. The '--heads=0' option tells map value(but may be unsuitable)for you

after i enter the '--head=0' i get

error 63: The number of heads must be specified. The '--sectors-per-track=0' option tells map value(but may be unsuitable)for you

i tried using both so my load looks like
title G-Parted
find -–set-root /gparted.iso
map --head=0 --sectors-per-track=0 /gparted.iso (hd32)
map -–hook
root (hd32)
chainloader (hd32)

says it can't load, any help would be appreciated

Gparted's own is here...

http://gparted.sourceforge.net/liveusb.php

If this is of no use it is because it is not clear to me what you want to do, have a copy of GpartedLive on a USB flash or on A CD?

the good syntax is :

map --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0 /gparted.iso (hd32)

and it works
