[SOLVED] USB Flash Drive with Ubuntu partition
I just bought a USB pyn 4gb flash drive. I used Gpartd to split the USB stick into 4 partitions. I made 1 partition FAT16, 1 partition FAT32, 1 partition FAT32, 1 partition ext2. I used system>administration>create a USB startup disk. I used my ubuntu-8.10-desktop-i386.iso for my "Source disc image(.iso)or CD: then i made the startup disk with my first partition - 1 FAT16.
I wanted this too install ubuntu on my laptop - currently winxp is destroyed cuz I tried to resize my partition on c against partition magics suggestion i don't LOL. My DVD-Rom drive doesn't work. I have no Floppy drive. So i'm stuck with Ethernet or USB to load an OS too it. I am trying to do USB.
My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite A105-s4094 - In the bios I have an option for 1st boot from USB Memory. I try this feature with my USB plugged in. I recieve this.
Intel (R) Bootagent FE v4.1.18
Pxe-e61 media test failure, check cable
Pxe-MOF Exiting intel bootagent
Does this mean that booting from a usb flash drive isn't possible? or that I could use USB bios option for External USB hard drive?
I loaded my USB stick into another computer running WinXP and it only recognizes the 1st Partition running FAT16. Is there a reason for this. When I open My Computer in winxp It shows my USB drive with the ubuntu logo.
Any ideas ?
