Nice photo. It's been quite a while since I worked with syslinux. Can you post the contents of syslinux.cfg and isolinux.cfg?

I have to confess that I don't remember how I used syslinux before, Embarassed its been years and even then I only did it once out of curiosity.

How did you install Puppy to your flashdrive? What operating system were you using and what program?

While in Precise_light-5.7.2 I used Menu->Setup->PuppyInstaller->UniversalInstaller->UsbFlashDrive->sdc1, formatted my usb to ext3 with Gparted and then Install_Puppy_to_sdc1. It installed the 4 main Puppy files to sdc1 and created a very simple extlinux.conf file in which I can add boot parameters. What I like most about it is you can swap in any Puppy files you choose without changing extlinux.conf. It is not Precise_light specific.

I always use Menu->Grup4dos_bootloader_config. It continues to allow me the most options and flexibility.

I see you are using a newer Windows computer. Perhaps there are problems I am unaware of. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will speak up about this.

Hi theeastsun,

It's also been a while since I actually had to have functional isolinux.cfg and/or syslinux.cfg. But, I think fairly recently someone posted that however you installed Puppy to a USB-Key, when the application which created it writes "pmedia=cd" it has to be edited to read "pmedia=usbflash" [without the quotes].

I'm still blurry-eyed. But I counted four instances, all following the append arguments.

Cool Obviously less blurry-eyed than me. Thanks Mike.

Looks like the syslinux bootloader is missing.
Not sure if you have a syslinux package in Precise jrb, (I always use puppy Wheezy for that operation) but if so, then it can be accomplished by formatting the stick to fat32, checking that the boot flag is enabled via gparted, then issuing command syslinux /dev/sdb1 (or whatever the flash drive is named, MAKE SURE IT IS UNMOUNTED). Then copy the needed puppy files over to the flash drive. Hopefully UEFI doesn't get in the way.

Any other Puppy distro should work as well.

For installing from Windows8, you might want to ask in Beginners Help. I know nothing about Win8 or 10. There are lots of people who can help you there.

Good Luck, J

Precise-light may be too old to recognize your modem. But try this:

The usual app for a device like this would be wvdial.

Run: wvdialconf

This should create a config file where you can enter your connection info.

Then run: wvdial

Do you get a message indicating that a connection was made?

Leave the terminal window open or minimized.

Launch your web browser.
