Hi everyone,

I want to make a bootable USB.

I follow the instructions in the link to make it.

When I try to make USB bootable,

$ sudo syslinux -s /dev/sdb

it shows

plain floppy: device "/proc/1906/fd/3" busy
Cannot initialize 'S:'
syslinux: warning: failed to set system bit on ldlinux.sys
plain floppy: device "/proc/1906/fd/3" busy
Cannot initialize 'S:'
Bad target s:/ldlinux.sys

How can I solve it?

$ sudo syslinux -s /dev/sdb
Double check that line. I skimmed that link; it just might be
$ sudo syslinux -s /dev/sdb1
