Title: Failed to boot from USB
Post by: LePsy666 on August 18, 2012, 09:02:32 PM
Hi everyone

I tried to install DSL 4.4.0 on a usb key ( sdb1 = 1GB for the OS, sdb2 = 3GB ) using this guide

    http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/install_to_usb_from_within_linux.html (http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/install_to_usb_from_within_linux.html)

Method 1 did not work, method 3 seems to work but I get an error at boot, grub is telling me that "No kernel loaded"

Is there any new step since this guide has been written ?

Thanks !

Actually there is a command on the method 1 that did not work properly

syslinux -s /dev/sdXY returns me an error because "-s" was not accepted ( even if it was present in the man ) I had to use the long version "--stupid" then it works
