Installing Bunsen from USB problem [SOLVED]

Hi there,

I tried to install Bunsen labs on my thinkpad x 220 with no success. It has no cddrive so i need to copy the iso to a usb stick to archieve this. As described on the bunsen page and in the debian link it s a hybrid iso and i just have to copy it to the usb drive without anything else? Thats what i did, but when trying to boot the screen remains blank on startup and nothing further is happening.. i had the usb stick formatted to fat16.. thanks!

not sure but unetbootin was always a way to make live usb sticks etc.. is this maybe an idea to run it with the bunsen iso? just guessing...

What *exactly* did you do?

What were the commands you used?

Did you follow these directions:
https://www.debian.org/releases/stable/ … -isohybrid

*Do not* use unetbootin

Re: Installing Bunsen from USB problem [SOLVED]

I used

sudo cp bl-Hydrogen-rc1-amd64.iso /dev/sdb1
sync

as described in your link, and i had the usb stick unmounted.. only output was "no operation system"



for checking if the .iso file is alright i did

sha256sum --check $ bl-Hydrogen-rc1-amd64.iso.sha256sum.txt


not sure if this is all right... thanks!!

Re: Installing Bunsen from USB problem [SOLVED]

You can copy something only to a mounted drive/partition. Would Linux see an unmounted drive/parition?

At /dev/sd* and /dev/hd* as block devices. More info through

lsblk

You can write to block devices (=files) like to any other file.

True. lsblk would show all drives and partitions. But, sometimes files won't be written to a usb drive, if it is read only. Am I right?

Re: Installing Bunsen from USB problem [SOLVED]

Did you try the dd method?

Try

sudo cp bl-Hydrogen-rc1-amd64.iso /dev/sdb
sync

I'm sure, it should be sdb, not sdb1
