View Full Version : [ubuntu] Grub on USB flash drive

August 2nd, 2009, 04:49 AM
I've been trying to get grub to boot on my 4 gig pen drive with no success. Everything I try has ended in BIOS errors like "Not a bootable device - insert a bootable floppy" or just plain old "BOOT ERROR". How would I go about getting grub running on this drive?

I've tried formatting as both FAT16 and FAT32 and found no difference with my BIOS. I set the boot flag, installed a master boot loader, threw the kernel and all the grub files in, ran grubinstall - still nothing. Any suggestions?
