Can the laptop boot from cdrom? This is the usual way to test whether puppy works with your computer, or not. Then if everything works OK, you can explore other ways of puppy installation.

What is currently on the laptop? If windows, you don't necessarily have to wipe it, as puppy can co-exist on a windows partition. See here, for info on a method of installing puppy to a windows partition:

Does this mean that puppy booted normally, or that windows booted normally?

If the latter, then either you need to alter the bios to boot from cdroms first, or the bios doesn't support cdrom boot. To check this you need to enter the bios by pressing whatever key activates it, in the first few secs after boot. Maybe Delete key, F1, Escape key? In the bios there should be an entry for Boot order, or something like it. It's there where you can make sure that the computer boots from cdrom before hard disk.

If the computer doesn't support cdrom boot, then you can still try a smartbootmanager floppy, to try & get the cdrom to boot.

If puppy cdrom did boot normally. Does it work OK? If yes, then I would suggest that you let the puppy CD save it's pup_save.2fs file to the hard disk, and just continue using puppy by booting from the cdrom, until you're more familiar with it's usage & peculiarities. Then. later, you can perhaps wipe the hard disk & dedicate it to puppy.

With regard to the error 17, can you post a copy of the file menu.lst? Also, which files have you copied to the hard disk, and where to? Lastly, does windows still boot OK?

Would anybody be so very kind, please, and advise - what / how should I do to copy these 4 files (INITRD.GZ, PUP_xxx.SFS and VMLINUZ and USBFLASH) into the DOS partition of USB stick ?
As far as I understand - it is necessary to place them there, otherwise I was not able to get it up & running ... or how ?
Thanks a lot in advance

Dr. Dzivite,

Did you try booting from a pup cdrom, mounting the cdrom, then running the universal installer, then selecting to install to USB Flash Drive?

Is your Bios set to boot from usbkey?

Thanks a lot, Muggins. It helped and all boots run smoothly now. The only thing I regret a little bit - why should I postpone with Puppy for so long time ... it is nice indeed. Thanks again. Best regards. Iveta

I just installed Wakepup2 on a CD-ROM to boot Puppy Dingo onto my computers. It worked for all of them except for my laptop. I had to manually make the computer boot from the CD an then it said there was no SCSI.SYS file? The booting stopped right there also saying something about not else would be installed.

I'm assuming my computer is missing a file or driver but isn't that the point of wakepup and puppy? That you computer can basically be missing all crucial files, haha.

PostPosted: Thu 22 Oct 2009, 19:13    Post_subject: Floppy boot disk for Puppy2
Sub_title: Need help with floppy boot disk
 

Hi everyone,

I am new to this forum, with a limited computer background. I'm trying to create a bootable floppy disk so I can use an older laptop that does not read a USB drive directly. When I unzipped WakePup2 and put a floppy disk in the A: drive I got the following message:

'rawrite' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. The wakepup2 boot disk has been created. Press any key to continue....

The floppy disk appears to be empty. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

Thanks for your help.
