Can't boot live USB


Computer is Lenovo E520 Thinkpad. I have run numerous Linux distros on it.

Downloaded slackware64-live-current.iso and iso2usb.sh. Installed to thumb drive, tried to boot from it. Boot ignores the USB and skips to my HDD GRUB.

If I F12 to select boot device as USB HDD, it tries for a few seconds, but cycles back to the same boot device menu.

I have tried changing BIOS to both EFI and Legacy mode. Results are the same for both.

Then I bought new USB drives and tried again. Same results.

From a running Fedora, I performed fdisk -l on the Slackware USB. Here are the results.
Code:
# fdisk -l /dev/sdc
Disk /dev/sdc: 7.5 GiB, 8022654976 bytes, 15669248 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes

I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: gpt
Disk identifier: 094E7843-0783-44C2-AF28-23872F56E3C8

Device      Start      End  Sectors  Size Type
/dev/sdc1    2048     4095     2048    1M BIOS boot

/dev/sdc3  208896 15669214 15460319  7.4G Linux filesystem
I have previously booted a live Fedora USB on this same machine. Just to be certain, I created a new live Fedora USB, and it booted just fine.
Here is the fdisk -l for the Live Fedora USB. Noe the difference on the Disklabel type- gpt vs.dos
Code:
# fdisk -l /dev/sdb
Disk /dev/sdb: 7.5 GiB, 8022654976 bytes, 15669248 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes

Thwe partition layout looks like expected. If the drive does not boot, can you recall any errors at the end of running "iso2usb.sh"? I don't suppose you captured the output while that command was running?

I was pretty certain that the iso2usb.sh did not throw any errors, but I did not retain the logs. I decided to recreate the process. Since the USB already had the files on it, iso2usb.sh tried to do a shortcut and not do anything. I force the situation by deleting the partitions, changing the drive type to dos, then creating some fake dos partitions. THis allowed iso2ush.sh to run normally. No errors were thrown. Log below. After that, I tried booting from the USB again, but the results were the same.

Can't see anything wrong there. Is your computer using BIOS or UEFI? Have you tried the USB stick in another computer yet?
I create my USB stick the same way and it boots on computers that operate under BIOS as well as computers with UEFI.

When I run Fedora 25 on native disk, I perform efibootmgr and it tells me "EFI variables are not supported on this system". This suggests that the machine is NOT running UEFI. When I look in the BIOS setup options, it is set for BOTH on UEFI and Legacy, with UEFI being first.

If I force BIOS setup into UEFI, I then tried the USB. It comes up to a Boot Device menu, which includes the USB. I select it, but it immediately returns to the same Boot Device menu. No messages flashed or displayed.

If I force BISO setup into Legacy (BIOS I assume), it does not go to the Boot Device menu, but instead boots from the regular HDD. If I restart and F12 to the Boot Device menu, it includes the USB. I select it, and it seems to try for 2 or 3 seconds, but then returns to the same Boot Device menu. Again no messages displayed.

I tried it on another computer, an older HP desktop, which only has legacy, no UEFI installed. This gives me a slightly meaningful error message:
SYSLINUX 6.04 EDD Copyright (C) 1994-2015 H. Peter Anvin et al
Failed to load ldlinux.c32
Boot failed: plese change disks and press a key to continue.

I don't know if the c32 in the error refers to 32-bit. This is a 64-bit machine, as is the laptop.

Thanks
Jim

Does this article and its suggested solution help you? What OS were you running when you executed iso2usb.sh?

Edit: I went ahead and implemented this new requirement for syslinux >= 6.03: http://bear.alienbase.nl/cgit/livesl...7127c013b1b39c
Note that Slackware still has syslinux-4.07 - we do not suffer from this issue.

As an aside, I follow the syslinux mailing list since a long time, and following Ady's advice I would not recommend upgrading to the 6.xx branch anytime soon. Syslinux 6.03 is not even able to boot on EFI from an optical media. The sad truth is that this project is in a comatose state.

Thanks. I am running Fedora 25 XFCE spin.

I applied the patch you suggested and re-ran the iso2usb.sh. It rebuilt the USB without any errors. (I saved the terminal listing if you want it).

When booting from the Lenovo laptop, results were identical, still unable to run at all. (I did not mention before, and not sure if it is pertinent, but I did burn a DVD from the ISO. I can boot and run this without problem on the laptop. However, obviously that does not have the persistent features of running from a USB.)


When I tried to boot from the HP desktop, results are slightly different, but still does not boot successfully. Here is what it says:
SYSLINUX 6.04 EDD Copyright (C) 1994-2015 H. Peter Anvin et al
Failed to load COM32 file vesamenu.c32

I think that the problems comes from running this script on Fedora 25: in doing so you are mixing files from 4.07 and 6.04pre1 syslinux versions.

The script iso2usb.sh copies the file vesamenu.c32 from Slackware on the boot stick, then runs extlinux to install the bootloader on the USB stick.

vesamenu.c32 comes from syslinux version 4.07 but the binary extlinux comes from the system that runs the script, in your case 6.04pre1 (which is a pre-release from another branch).

No, this file is just not shipped in the syslinux package of Slackware. And even it it were, it wouldn't be at the expected version either.

For syslinux to work, it is safer that all components used come from the same version of the package.

tl;dr: I suggest to run a Slackware Live from a DVD (maybe the full version, I didn't check if the needed packages are included in the XFCE one) and run iso2usb.sh from there.

Eric, please correct me as need be.

I tried as you suggested, booting a live DVD of the same distro that I am trying to install to USB. When I ran the iso2usb.sh there, I received errors, highlighted below. The USB would still not boot, although with the error shown, that is not surprising.

I mounted the hard drive partition where the ISO lived under /mnt/fc25

The strange thing is that everything seems to have been copied over to the USB drive (100%, 3GB of data) and then there's a sudden rsync error about the USB drive becoming read-only.
Can you find anything in the messagelog or the kernel log about status changes of the USB device? Also, you can add "-v" parameter to the iso2usb.sh commandline to get more verbose progress details about the rsync.

Can you find anything in the messagelog or the kernel log about status changes of the USB device? Also, you can add "-v" parameter to the iso2usb.sh commandline to get more verbose progress details about the rsync.
I did as you suggested. However, I still cannot boot. Same symptoms. I did inspect the messagelog for any references to the USB changing to read only, but there were none.

When I ran the iso2usb.sh, I added the -v to get more verbose output. It is shown below. (Note that I reverted to the unpatched iso2usb, which I had backed up before applying the patch.) Also note that the error about the directory being read only has disappeared.

Can't boot live USB

Some progress! It still will not boot on the desired machine (Thinkpad E520). However, on the older HP Desktop, I was able to ESC to get to the Boot Device selection. I selected the USB device, and it booted Slackware Live mode with persistent settings exactly as it should.

So it seems that it is necessary to create the USB from a Live DVD running Slackware. This proves that the USB creation process works.

So does anybody have any suggestions on how to get this to boot on the Thinkpad E520?

Thanks
Jim

This is a not so recent machine, that seems to have an hybrid firmware, and I have seen a report saying that it can't boot from an USB stick in EFI mode. A few things you could try:
  • Check on the Lenovo website for the availability of a firmware (they name it BIOS) update for your specific model and apply it.
  • Check your startup mode in the firmware. If it is set to EFI only or both but priority EFI, set it to BIOS only or both but BIOS first. Maybe BIOS is called Legacy in the firmware's menu.
Some machines can't boot from an USB stick if the ISO has been created with mkisfos/isohybrid so you could try to recreate it using xorriso and run iso2usb.sh against the new ISO, but first try to just boot in Legacy mode as I don't know what is the issue for your specific model.

I confirmed that I have the most current BIOS that Lenovo offers, i.e., January 2013.

I had previously changed the boot option to be Legacy only. Just to be sure, I tried it again. Same results, i.e., I must interrupt startup to select Startup Device List. I then select the USB device, it tries for a second or two, but then loops back to the Startup Device List. Tried a few iterations, same results.

Just to be certain of the machine's ability, I burned a USB directly. While running my regular HDD Fedora 25, I performed
Code:
dd if=slackware64-live-current.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M
I immediately rebooted, and it booted Slackware perfectly from the USB. Of course, this does not include the desired persistent mode.

I'm not certain what you are suggesting that I do with xorriso. Should I use the input file of the existing iso and create a newly named outout iso? Then run the iso2usb.sh against that?

Thanks
Jim
