    Can't configure syslinux to show a menu for multiple options

    Hi all,

    I have Ubuntu 12.04.02 LTS on an ADATA S102 16GB USB 3.0. I noticed that it boots much faster when persistence isn't enabled. I wanted to be able to use two different options, one with and without the persistence partition.

    Partitions:
    2GB for OS
    13.4 GB casper-rw

    This is my syslinux.cfg currently:

    *****

    default menu.c32
    prompt 0
    menu title My Distro Installer

    timeout 600
    f1 help.txt
    f2 version.txt

    # D-I config version 2.0
    include menu.cfg
    default vesamenu.c32
    prompt 0
    timeout 50
    ui gfxboot bootlogo

    default persistent
    say Booting a persistent Ubuntu session...
    kernel /casper/vmlinuz
    append file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper persistent initrd=/casper/initrd.lz quiet splash noprompt --

    *****

    I tried to make a menu with the first 2 paragraphs. The 3rd and 4th boot non-persistence and persistence respectively. When I try to boot with the current syslinux.cfg, it says that there is a missing operating system.

    I'm looking for both suggestions and pointers to how to read syslinux.cfg files. Thanks!
