View Full Version : [ubuntu] USB drive install problems

September 21st, 2008, 10:32 PM
Hi everyone,

I am attempting to do a persistent install on a USB memory stick of Ubuntu 8.04.1 from the live cd as per the instructions located here:


I followed the instructions exactly, then attempted boot. At first everything looked good, but after the Ubuntu splash screen with the bar going back and forth, I was brought to a black screen with a command line. I did the lilo thing and reinstalled the MBR on the USB stick. Same result.

I booted back up from the live cd and looked at the USB stick, and the only thng on there is LOST+FOUND folder..

I wonder if they skipped a step?

Thanks in advance..
