Bootflash combo - 128Mb vs 256Mb error - no warning message
Using the Bootflash 'combo' option only worked with older version using 128Mb second partition size. (Another option beside 'combo' also uses a second partition of size 128Mb/256Mb for the system files.)
No warning when .iso is too big
Originally, I used the older Bootflash (in Slacko 5.31). I tried to use the latest Slacko .iso for the USB installation. However, as this Bootflash uses 128Mb for the second partition the .iso file is too big. However, no warning was given, meaning to took me a while to work out the problem.
USB boot error using combo option with newer 256Mb
I next tried a newer Bootflash version (in Slacko 5.93). This made a 256Mb second partition, large enough for latest Slacko .iso. However, trying to boot returned:
Success using older Bootflash and Wary Barebones
I went back to the older Bootflash and used Wary Barebone .iso, as this is about 64Mb it fits in a second partition of 128Mb. This booted successfully on the same machine (Amilo Pro, Intel T2080, 1813Mb).
