The flash drive icon should say something like sda1 or sdb1 underneath.
You're looking for "syslinux.config".

edit
Meant syslinux.cfg

My way of reducing temperature problems on a Laptop...

I built a platform for my laptop, so that it won't be sitting on a bed/lap and overheating...


This was made with a old freezer bin out of a large deep freeze and a piece of board.

Vic here ...

I remove any panels from the laptop bottom and secure components that relied on those panels.

I elevate the laptop with any mesh I have on hand, such as a grate from an oven or a closet or a bbq grille or any air free-flow device around.

A pc fan never hurts.
