    Re: Howto: Create LiveUSBs from Windows using a GUI (UNetbootin)

    Hello to all, this is my first post, and need some assistance with starting ubuntu 8.10 from my USB Disk.

    My Laptop BIOS does not support booting from a USB device. So I followed this information and I am stuck.

    http://www.pendrivelinux.com/ubuntu-...usb-installer/

    Then I did this:

    http://www.pendrivelinux.com/usb-boo...or-ubuntu-810/

    All went well, however, when I boot from the ISO image I made, I get grub>_

    I typed boot, but got the kernel has to be loaded first.

    I am brand new to ubuntu, so any help I can get would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Re: Howto: Create LiveUSBs from Windows using a GUI (UNetbootin)

    Here is an update from my last post:

    I did over the iso instructions in the second link. This time I booted ubuntu from the LiveCD and ran firefox. I copied and pasted all the terminal instructions. Put the new iso image on a CD,and attempted to boot with the USB stick, and CD.

    Got "Run Ubuntu using a USB Disk" hit enter, some text scroll by and finally at the end got this:

    Bios EDD Facility v0.16-2004-Jun-25, o devices found
    EDD information not available
    input: At Translation set 2 keyboard a /devices/platform/i8041/serio0/input/input1
    VFS: cannot open root device "<NULL>" or unknown_block (8,1)
    Please append a correct "root" boot option; here are the available le partations.
    Kernel panic not syncing. VFS:unable to mount root fs on known block (8,1)


    I tried the CD and the USB Disk on my desktop, same information I got. I decided to go into the BIOS of the desktop set it to boot from a USB device and use the USB stick alone. The USB stick booted ubuntu fine.

    However I need this to work on my Laptop for when traveling. Hence why I need to get this the USB Boot CD going.

    This method worked great for Intrepid 8.10. I have a Dell Mini9, so now I just have to figure out how to get the sound to work and be able to scroll within input screens, such as Thunderbird Address cards. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Re: Howto: Create LiveUSBs from Windows using a GUI (UNetbootin)

    Hi all!
    I've tried to run Arch Linux and Elive in LiveUSB mode, but got the same error: "Failed to mount squashfs filesystem" message, and then "Can't access tty; job control turned off" . After this, i'm dropped to "(initramfs _ )" and that's all... Any help on that?

    Is boot loader in Unetbootin linux specific? It works just fine with the distros provided. But when I try to make a windows liveusb (like a Bart disc), then the startup screen offers no option at all.

    I checked the USB drive (on my WinXP machine) and the ldlinux.sys file you mentioned is not on the USB drive anywhere.

    Any thoughts?
    Same "Disk Error" error here.
    Kingston 1Gb + ubuntu-8.10-desktop-i386.iso + unetbootin-windows-319.exe + WinXP Pro. Drive wasn't formated before instalation.
    ldlinux.sys is on the drive.

    PD: Old files still on the Drive. Formated it and will try again. will report later.

    Does anybody had experience with build a certain usb image with a custom kernel?

    Changing the default one (kernel) from the *.iso file
    I've had checked the UNetbootin documentation and no luck.

    Thanks in advance

    Yet another Windows GUI app to make LiveUSBs

    Little Windows GUI app designed specifically for creating Live USBs for Ubuntu (and variants). "Ubuntu Live USB Imager" can be found at ...

    Hope you all get some use out of this!
