Near to success. Topic modified here above because useless alternatives. Isobooter is not guilty. I should have learnt to better use DOGstretch.

DOGS are different from Puppy Linux, until now.. They will progress fast, with our help. isobooter is a new way for them. XenialDog is really the better Xenial OS available
Puppy Linux has yet a Puppy stretch running nice (tuxx and sailor enceladus versions tested). Dogstretch will not do better.

13.00 PM Final success. Bookmarks are here in Firefox, proof that previous session well saved and loaded. Exclamation
Mintpup was there for training purpose
Saves are done on my linux Partition sda3, no need to create a linux partion on the pendrive. However it would be fine not to have to type all the path with my french keyboard.

Be specific. Are you trying to make the drive bootable? I don't know if the dogs have Grub4Dos, which you will need.

ISObooter is a procedure for booting many Linuxes, including Puppy, directly from their ISO files.

Hi, I just used it successfully, and am VERY pleased and impressed!
I copied the menu.lst it produced on /mnt/sda3 (a FAT32 partition) into my "regular"
menu.lst on /mnt/sda1 (EXT4). It works there, too!
Code:
title gparted-live-0.29.0-1-i686
partnew (hd0,3) 0x00 (hd0,2)/gparted-live-0.29.0-1-i686.iso
map --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0 (hd0,2)/gparted-live-0.29.0-1-i686.iso (0xff)
map --hook
root (0xff)
chainloader (0xff)

Thank you!

Oh, sda is a 128GB SSD

If you wanted to extract the ISO, then add a menu.lst entry to reflect that method.

Just like you would have on a boot setup made with Grub4Dos Bootloader Config.

No. That's an isolinux-style boot entry. You want a GRUB-style entry.

So Isobooter boots an iso a bit like booting from a cd, I suppose. I guess you can then create a savefile/folder if wanted? Not so flexible if you don't want to use a savevefile/folder but want to save to an sfs for instance. Normal, frugal install more flexible and you have more options.

Look at Grub4DosConfig.

If you are going to snipe at a project, you should at least try it first.

Puppies have a Pupsave created as usual, easily. For other Linux, not so easy.. But ISObooter is not guilty, that is the distros that never were able to do saving as easy than with a Puppy. (I am an XeniaDog user too)

does this method of booting from a usb flash stick work on a pc that does not support booting from a usb device?

What if additionally there's even no cd/dvd drive? (And slow usb 1.0)

Some five years ago superuser.com had a discussion on booting Linux from an ISO file in windows with grub2 in windows (I think).

My (and my friends') several pc's have Slacko 5.7 (thanks to having an exe-installer available!) with grub4dos, apparently syntax different from grub2.

(Selected Slacko after burning some thirty cd's. Luckily the exe-installer was found)

Edit: Seemingly grub2 and grub4dos can be "chained" but don't know how

Edit2: Found later http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=74653 Must read thoroughly
