Hi rsgreen23,

Welcome to LQ!

You boot from the flash drive, but it produces tye error "kernel not found"? Is the flash drive an install media? That's what you require.

Sounds as if you'll need to do a full install. What specifically is on the USB?

In the future, you should provide more details about how you got here, what distribution or other OS you originally had installed, what you are running on the USB, or if the computer is saying that there is no OS found on the USB.
