Subject description: something like unetbootin?
 

Hi,I want to know if there's any LiveUSB making software for puppy linux. I DON'T want to make a liveusb of Puppy linux,I want to make a ubuntu liveUsb from Lucid Puppy.Unetbootin doesn't work as it doesn't display any of my usb drives.

Thanks Smile

Read here.

The original instructions are for using GRUB2. But I have now switched to using GRUB4DOS as described at the end of the post.

Unetbootin works fine on Puppy. Remember the devices must be mounted. Mount them with Pmount and then Unetbootin will see them.

That's misleading. It may work after you have supplied all the dependencies, like mtools and 7zip.

it works fine, like every program that needs a dependency to work. Mtools isn't needed anyways. And he could run it and all, he just can't see the drives. And maybe he just has to simply mount the drives...

Dredged up this post as I have a similar problem. I have a cruizer thumb drive that I want to make a macpup bootable so I downloaded the macpup iso as well as unetbootin and mtools. The thumb drive was originally formatted on a windows machine as fat32 but when unetbootin didn't see it I used gparted to repartition it again as fat32. Puppy (I am running wary 5.2) sees it fine and can mount it but unetbootin does not see it whether mounted or not.

Any further ideas?

Wary already has tools for making bootable flash drives. Look in the Setup menu for the Bootflash installer or the Puppy Universal Installer.

You don't need Unetbootin.

I think macpup has the universal installer which can install puppy on USB. The op was trying to install other Os s which would need a different tool

Never trust Windows....my recent Sandisk experience.

Did you set the Flags ..>>>LBA and...>> Boot ??????

Tried different ports.
Some computers won't boot from a front port.

Tried another computer.

Checked the bios boots the usb first.

Some do that....but with others you have to select
which hard drive to boot from first....

even though you use a usb.

For multiboots I use Hirens.

If I had Wary and Macpup on the same usb,
my menu would look like this.

The folders would be lowercase....as

wary

macpup


title Wary (sdc1/wary)
find --set-root --ignore-floppies /wary/initrd.gz
kernel /wary/vmlinuz pmedia=usbflash psubdir=wary pfix=fsck
initrd /wary/initrd.gz

title Macpup (sdc1/macpup)
find --set-root --ignore-floppies /macpup/initrd.gz
kernel /macpup/vmlinuz pmedia=usbflash psubdir=macpup pfix=fsck
initrd /macpup/initrd.gz
