[Bug] UEFI boot from USB results in isolinux not found

Post in this forum for problems at boot time, if there was no problem for burning the disc. For example can't find the CD, or strange errors when you press enter at the very first prompt.

[Bug] UEFI boot from USB results in isolinux not found

Postby rbeede » 03 Jan 2017, 15:15

Using Windows 7 I created a bootable USB using SystemRescueCd-x86-4.9.1 and the SystemRescueCd installer for Windows http://www.sysresccd.org/download/sysresccd-installer-2.0.0.exe

It extracts the content and renames isolinux to syslinux for booting with syslinux.

However, in my boot options I may only get UEFI as an option. Choosing this uses the grub2 boot instead of the syslinux menu.

If I try to boot I get an error because the grub2 config is setup to still use isolinux as the path instead of the renamed syslinux. Easy to fix by editing the grub2 boot config to use syslinux instead.

So a small bug in the USB installer since it should also modify the grub2 config file to point to syslinux instead.
