View Full Version : [ubuntu] Netboot and USB Partition

September 20th, 2008, 08:10 PM
I have an old VIA Epia board with no cdrom/hdd (buggy SATA implementation on southbridge).
So i would like to install Ubuntu on my usb pen drive. Unfortunately, my pen drive (or is it the EPIA board?) is not bootable.

So, what i would like to do is, boot Ubuntu from a USB pen drive (not the installer but a full installation)

Installing ubuntu on the drive is no problem, but i cant boot it.

So, is there a way to do a netboot (PXE) which uses the pendrive as the main partition?
