I currently have DSL installed on a 64mb flash drive. It is recognized as 'Generic Flash Disk'. It is bootable on the rest of my PCs.
I recently got received a Intel D850EMV2 Motherboard with a 2.4gz processor for free, And want to run DSL on it with no drives, boot from USB, that's it.
I've installed Ubuntu 6.10 on an old hard drive, and it works perfectly. It also was running WinXP before that, so the board is fine.
In the BIOS, the flash disk is detected as a hard drive if it is plugged in at boot.
The problem I am having is very strange. Instead of a "Boot Failed" or any other error, all that appears on my monitor when I am trying to boot from it is a lowercase j. I've tried almost every method possible to create the bootable pendrive, but I USB-ZIP isn't supported, and all i get is the lowercase j.
