rggg.. (insert multiple curse words)

i've done this before on a previous flash stick (different brand) and it worked beautifully. (and then i lost it - the drive)

here's what i have -

- the latest ISO burned on a cd (and it boots great - right to puppy)
- a brand new PQI Intelligent-stick 1gig flash drive (it also is found by XP)
- Win XP

1. I start Windows normally - plug in my flash stick - it finds it - i use the HP USB disk storage format tool to format the flash drive.

2. I reboot the system this time with the puppy cd in - puppy starts - i plug in the flash drive and go thru the process of installing puppy on the flash drive sda1

3. I reboot system this time with the cd removed and the flash drive inserted - i get the damned (sigh) 'please remove non system disk' - so the sys can't boot from the drive - something is wrong.

on the flash drive when i check out what's on there i see :


(no pup 100)

i also used the encryption bit.

anyone help me out here??? i'm about to break my laptop like a waffle.

i went back and downloaded/burned the older version of puppy.

now it boots up right away- magic.

however i also read (somewhere) that i could update the gz and cram files from the new puppy to my older version and i'd be flying.

however - once i did this - i really just corrupted my good copy - so i started all over.

so - although i don't have the latest - i do have puppy..


now just have to figure out how to transfer files from windows, get rid of the seagull, and get a clue bout linux.

Mtools in file managers is the tool for transferring those files over to Puppy.

And dont miss this one about your probelm (right here in this section).
