Unetbootin the 13.37 RC2 live cd

Post by Mats » 30. Jan 2012, 13:20

I may have done something wrong, so please guide me!

i tried to install the 13.37 RC2 iso (64 bit) to a usb stick using unetbootin, but it looks a lot different from what i expected.
it boots, but to a unetbootin boot prompt, i hit default and default boot starts. Nowhere am i asked to select keyboard layout and such. the now erased old version of the usb stick gave a nice salixos boot screen, but this may be because this is still a Beta.

are there better methods to install Live CD to USB stick ?

yes. funny we were talking about this today on the ML. There is an official way to do this. You can find it on the wiki and on the salix start up guide.

install-on-USB.cmd always fail for me!

Code: Select all

  if exist %DRIVE%\*.live (
    echo Error: You need to put the .live file from the iso into the root of the usb key %DRIVE%
    endlocal
    exit /b 1
  )
i have a .live file in the root dir of my USB key (E:) still i get this :

Code: Select all

The .cmd version on RC2 did not work. Download the version from here and replace the original: http://gaia.homelinux.org/misc/install-on-USB.cmd
