On very old boards, it may be necessary to use PLOP or some FDD adjuct to achieve boot-up from a USB stick. On failrly recent, but not 1-2yr old boards, don't forget to switch back on the 'legacy/DOS USB' function in BIOS to activate USB booting from F8 or whatever the BIOS permits.

Quirky 6.1 runs great on my Sony 16GB USB 3.0 Micro Vault stick on a Lenovo X201 i5 with 4GB of RAM Smile However, if I use a cheap no name USB stick, it is a bit laggy, which is expected.

We need to bring back WakePup2, developed by forum member 'pakt'. haven't seen any posts from pakt on the forum for sometime.

Here are some links:

http://puppylinux.org/wikka/WakePup2
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=7979
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=80291

We actually used to include a compressed 1.44MB floppy disk WakePup image in Puppy, back in early pup 2.x days.

Yes, I have been tempted to buy a USB3 stick!

I noticed, Officeworks here advertising USB2 8GB sticks for A$4.95 each -- they are coming down.

They don't have the LED activity light though -- I do so prefer a Flash stick to have an activity light, so can see when the stick is actually doing something!

I upgraded from 6.01 to 6.1 with the service_pack-6.0.1_TO_6.1-quirky6.pet.
The Upgrade manager and Snapshot manager inside the Multimedia menu. ??
I tested the Snapshot manager, it made a Snapshot(in /audit/snapshots/). It size was 6MB, very nice. I haven't test the restore function yet. Thank Barry.
