Hi folks...

Can anyone point out any Puppy that can make a USB bootable with ANY Linux, like Unetbootin or equalent?

I am not going to make a puppy bootable but another.

So I need a program that can be installed to a puppy, be it 64 bit or 32 bit that does that Smile

best

Atle

Use Unetbootin running from Puppy.

Unetbootin.

This topic is about installing Puppy iso, but Unetbootin can install any Linux OPS iso.

If Unetbootin is not finding your USB drive.

Sometimes you have to force the issue with Unetbootin.

Start Unetbootin from the console by using this command.

Code:
unetbootin installtype=USB targetdrive=/dev/sdb1


You tell it the target USB drive you want it to use.

My USB flash drive is sdb1

Just make the targetdrive=/dev/ (whatever your USB drive is identified as)
