Hello,

When i boot from the usb I get the following error (written in french):

"Err. Disque
Pressez une touche pour demarrer."

The computer is american. The only french thing may be my usb drive. What should I do. Should I get another usb drive? Thank you.

Alex

Maybe get a translator Smile

In Puppy terminal, command "cfdisk /dev/sda1" (or whatever is the name of your USB drive), and check if it is bootable - there must be "boot" shown along with the partition (USB must not be mounted in Puppy when you do this). Activate that boot (if not active yet), then Write (save). Reboot PC then install Puppy to USB.

See the link below for example view of cfdisk.

Just for info

Means
"Disk error, hit a key to continue"

So your bios is not recognizing the drive, so indeed check partition type, if it's bootable,...

Or hardware problem???

Could you share what make and model computer this is?

What brand and model USB stick?

Also, if the usb device is indeed bottable, what option in the bios are you using to boot the stick? USB-HDD, USB-ZIP, or just USB (depending on the age of the system's bios).

I bet the system has a legacy motherboard, hence the French bios message?
