Issue with Live ISO and USB flash drive

I reported this on Hydrogen .x version on the old #! forums also.

But when booting from the USB to perform an install, it can't find the CD-ROM. So I now have to burn the .ISO to a DVD and install from there. Not an issue for me because my machine has a DVD drive. But some people might not an optical drive, or as with a lot of older laptops - a working optical drive. Just throwing it out there so hopefully this issue can be fixed in RC2.

             as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.

Re: Issue with Live ISO and USB flash drive

How did you transfer the iso to the USB? I would get issues like this if I used Unetbootin, but using the dd method worked perfectly.

Re: Issue with Live ISO and USB flash drive

Agreed, try using cp or dd if your transffering the ISO to USB using a Linux system. For example, if my USB is /dev/sdb and I'm using the 64 bit ISO...

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

Unetbootin also did not work for me. But dd did work with the 64-bit .iso

Re: Issue with Live ISO and USB flash drive

I used universal usb isntaller for windows which is supposedly designed for making bootable *nix sticks. But I'll bust out my other laptop which already has linux on it and use that to make the stick.

EDIT: It worked perfectly. Thank you so much. I am now up and running on my Dell Precision M4400. I love this laptop. Now it's even better because it's been bunsenfied. smile
