Can't help you with the "make bootable" part since I use an older laptop not natively capable of booting from USB, with the stick plugged into a usb2 port, booted with pakt's WakePup 2 (wkpup2x) boot floppy. If you have a newer computer which can boot a USB stick natively, then I suggest you search the forum on "make USB bootable" with "all terms" checked.

Download ISOBuster to C:\Downloads or wherever; unpack the installer to C:\Program Files\ISOBuster or wherever; download the Puppy .iso to subdir C:\Woof.

Use ISOBuster to unpack the .iso to C:\Woof\Unpacked. Copy the contents up to the USB stick (previously formatted and made bootable, with the necessary bootloader) so it looks like my USB directory screenshot at

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=7979&start=30

except don't (yet) put any .sfs's on it except pup_215.sfs and zdrv_215.sfs.

I show my linld.cfg in that same thread. isolinux.cfg, syslinux.cfg, or the menu.lst of grub will contain similar information.

Anyone care to detail the procedure for making a USB stick bootable?

I figured it out thanks for your screenshots and help.
1.format your stick using the Fat16 or Fat32 file system. To do this you can Download and install the HP USB tool.
By running HPUSBFW.EXE with admin rights you can format the usb drive
2.Download the Puppy Linux ISO.
3.Open the ISO using a program that can read iso images such as Izarc. Extract the files from the ISO to the root of your USB stick.
(There will be a single 'boot.images' directory amoung the other files.)
4.Rename isolinux.cfg to syslinux.cfg
5.open syslinux.cfg and
change “PMEDIA=idecd
timeout 50
“ to “PMEDIA=usbflash”
6.Download syslinux-3.36.zip and unzip the files to a directory named syslinux on your computer.
7.Go to the win32 directory of the syslinux folder that was created (cd \syslinux\win32)
8.Type syslinux.exe F: (replace F with your USB drive letter) to make the drive bootable.
9.Reboot your PC, go into your system BIOS and set your boot order to boot from a selectable USB device. (example USB_ZIP or use USB_HDD)
10.Save your BIOS settings. On the next reboot, you should have a successful launch of Puppy Linux from your USB memory stick.

*Tested on Puppy 215CE
Razz Thanks
