Re: USB boot problem and how to make it work...

Yes ... Sometimes despite the fact that everything is apparently OK the USB is unable to boot... Recently I had a similar problem and I get this fix: If an USB pen does not boot with "missing operating system" it is simply solved with a full format in order to redefine the bootblock ... Mo...

Re: sata_sis module in kernel 2.6.35 - not recognize HDD (SS

After some fiddling with other distros I figured that the previous problem (no HDD) is related to the sata_sis module in the latest Kernel ... 2.6.35 So I this specific lapto does not work correctly with the latest sata_sis module ... I know this forum is not the right place but ... would be possibl...

Re: USB boot problem and how to make it work...

By using the "Fedora tool" a new bootblock is created in the USB stick... So we can assume that the "original" USB bootblock were not bootable ... :) The system rescue installer uses the syslinux or isolinux bootblock ... By some strange reason it did no work with your USB stick ...

(Solved) Re: Broken USB installation

Sorry for the delay ... I confirm that the 1.7.0-beta014 is now installable in USB with the "old" syslinux. Although I suppose that we could try to figure out what is happening with the new isolinux / syslinux 4.01 ... If I have the time I will try (using the beta013) to check what is happ...
