Quote from: Usos on January 07, 2011, 22:42:26 PMNot using plop --> My USB Stick boots, but this is not the way I want to use it, since I want to use it at a friend's PC which definatly does not support USB boot
Quote from: Usos on January 08, 2011, 00:10:50 AMI want to use this method to make my friend see how awesome linux is and that he can use it as well. The stick contains fully bootable distro, rescue tools, etc. And when I show up and it does not work or causes weird errors and freezes he is never gonna go for linux and will never even consider it again. So I'd like it to work on the first try.

Quote from: yanger on January 13, 2011, 08:41:27 AMi know, i could just throw a ms-dos cdrom in and access a usb stick for data, but i think it's not safe to flash the cd-rom when using the cdrom to boot from it.

Quote from: yanger on January 14, 2011, 01:51:07 AMif i choose the usb option, it attempts to search for the usb device and hangs at the uhci drive detection, as it find one device... [it passes ehci with nothing found]
Quote from: yanger on January 14, 2011, 01:51:07 AMnow here's the wierd thing... if i choose the floppy, and there is no floppy on this system, the usb drive boots!the only side effect is that now ms-dos has to re-think everything and everything needs to be reprogrammed as a:\ instead of c:\ ... on most comps, the system boots as c:\ [windows ntfs and linux systems] ... hope that helps some!
Quote from: Usos on January 14, 2011, 15:07:55 PMBoot error
Quotefor a test, can you make the usb drive bootable to dos? with "fdisk /mbr", "sys" and so on?
Quote from: Elmar on January 14, 2011, 08:12:44 AMplease post a lsusb with the connected usb drive too.
Quote from: yanger on January 13, 2011, 08:38:39 AMAlso, just for kicks, I tried it under Virtualbox attempting to boot a usb stick, and it as well froze.
Quote from: VTCodeSlinder on January 14, 2011, 21:53:58 PMI'm suffering from similar issues (I'm trying to boot in Virtual Box using Plop and a USB Stick).

Quote from: grandma on April 15, 2011, 07:00:02 AMp.s. Elmar - tell the plop developers they did a wonderful job - very sweet utility and I appreciate the support - as good or better than any. Thank you.
