Hi all! I'm writing latest imera-kde-lite to the USB stick (ATV 8Gb). Use with manual http://manual.aptosid.com/en/hd-ins-opt ... tm#raw-usb
But after reboot:

      Code:
isolinux.bin missing or corrupt

MD5 is ok. How I can install the system?

P.S. Sorry, for my bad English.

Best guess you wrote the iso to the first partition on the stick instead of to the entire stick. In other words you wrote it to /dev/sdX1 not /dev/sdX

No, sdb4 is a partition on your usb flash. You need to write the iso to sdb. Note this will wipe everything on the complete usb flash device.

Ok, I'm try
      Code:
dd if=/home/nokman/aptosid-imera-kde-lite.iso of=/dev/sdb

After reboot:
      Quote:
ERROR: No configuration file found
No DEFAULT or UI configuration directive found!
boot:_

Any ideas? Sad

Strange. I guess the best things to try are to blank the start of the stick and then try and write it again.
      Code:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb bs=1M count=64

That will blank the beginning of the stick. Remove the stick and insert it again now and then try again with
      Code:
dd if=/home/nokman/aptosid-imera-kde-lite.iso of=/dev/sdb

Again make sure ("dmesg | tail" can help) that sdb is always correct before running the commands so you don't write to the wrong drive.

If this doesn't work I can only think to suggest trying one of the other methods to boot aptosid.

unetbootin will not work for aptosid, forget about it.

The boot aptosid article I linked to explains how to use extlinux or syslinux directly, or how to use the custom aptosid tool after you have booted from a cd.

I wrote aptosid on the DVD-RW drive, but it also does not load on the desktop and load another operating system.
On my laptop (acer aspire) all is well loaded, and the computer does not Sad
First boot device in bios is active. It is DVD-Rom.

Did you burn the iso correctly (particularly DAO/SAO mode)? Can you try to boot the dvd on another machine to test it is ok?

Can you boot anything (preferably Linux) from usb or dvd on the problem laptop?

Yes, I do. I'm using CDBurnerXP (on the advice of the manual).

Yes, it is. On another machine (my acer aspire laptop) all work fine. But on the desktop - fail! Confused

Problem in the desktop. Other distributions are run without any problems.

My desktop configuration:
    Motherboard: Gigabyte-M52L-S3P
    CPU: AMD Athlon X2 215 (2.71 GHz)
    Video: Radeon X1650 (256 Mb)
    Audio: ALC889
    RAM: 2Gb (800MHz)

This is all very odd Sad

The only other sane thing I can think right now to try would be to boot aptosid on the laptop and then use it to run the aptosid install-usb-gui tool to prepare a usb stick and try to boot that on the desktop. That tool will create a stick which will use grub to boot (the iso and other usb methods you have tried use syslinux).

Ok. I'm running install-usb-gui on my laptop:


I'm clicking "Apply" and I can see:


USB flash is formatted to the fat32.
What am I doing wrong now?
