Many of my colleagues have no usb boot on their computer. The matter is not old fashioned.
My computer is ACER Aspire 1000. The battery is out. No cooling. If i run CDs, the temperature goes to high.
I tried a wakepup iso to make the computer boot on usb. No success. But i am french and explanations here are not clear
USB must be USB flash ?
Impossible to boot hard drive USB ?
I have well understood or not ?
Is there a tuto somewhere ? (in french....)
Bonne journée

Since you mention the Wakepup ISO, it sounds like your machine still boots off a CD. In the following instructions, you can use either a USB flash drive or a USB hard drive.

1. Copy the three core Puppy files onto the USB device. You may have already done this. They are vmlinuz, initrd.gz and pupxxx.sfs.

2. Boot off your regular Puppy Live CD. At the short initial pause, type either
"puppy pmedia=usbflash" or "puppy pmedia=usbhd".

3. Once Puppy starts, you can remove the CD.

It works fine. The boot goes to the USB like if it was in the Bios
no distro on the CD, just a DOS program to choose where to boot (WAKEPUP)

dont forget to create on the USB an empty file PMEDIA=USB That was the reason why my first tries failed.

The CD can boot any puppy. No need to burn news CDs, only burn USBs.

The iso is available on Toutou linux tutorial

Many thanks for your help, a lot of people ask for this info.
