[SOLVED] Installation from USB fails

Hi guys, I'd like to thank you all for this great distribution, I have tried many linux distros but yours works faster than any other distro and I get 100% driver compatibility and performance in my old pc...(FS Amilo: Intel Celeron 1.4Ghz, 1Gb Ram, 60Gb HDD, 15' screen)!!!
I dont have a dvd rom installed in the laptop and when I try to install the distro through my usb stick the installer in some point searches for a CD/DVD Rom Drive... and the instalation fails because it cannot find one... but when I boot live from the usb it works like a charm.
Is this a bug or I am doing smth wrong? Thank you.

Debian - Troubleshooting the Installation Process

Did you do a checksum test when you downloaded the iso? How did you make the bootable usb?

Re: [SOLVED] Installation from USB fails

I didn't do a checksum test to be honest, I think this is not the problem but I will check it out, I made the bootable USB in Windows with Rufus 2.4. For your information I  downloaded the old crunchbug and the installer works fine in that distro. I think this is a bug with Debian Jessie and usb installation...

Re: [SOLVED] Installation from USB fails

I've just found this procedure and I am going to follow it and test it again.

On a Linux machine, simply use the "cp" command, to copy an image to a USB flash drive:
cp <file> <device>

Be sure to flush the buffers afterwards and wait for the command prompt to return:

sudo bash -c 'cp example.iso /dev/sdX && sync'

Replace "X" with the drive letter assigned to the device (plug the stick & run `dmesg|tail` to find this) -- *do not* use a partition number.

Re: [SOLVED] Installation from USB fails

[SOLUTION] I followed the instructions here and downloaded from my windows system the win32diskimager and YES it worked. I installed Hydrogen RC1 with 100% success from my [BOOTABLE USB] and I am loving it!!!

Nice one smile

If you could edit the title of your first post and add [SOLVED], it may help others looking for an answer wink
