I unzipped an ISO image of legacyOS2 and Im trying to boot that instead of having to burn a cd
I get this message..

looking for puppy sda1...sda2...sda3....

cant find puppy on bootable media
pdev1=

my iso was unzipped to /legacy
grub can find vmlinz and initrd and the root is set as /legacy
so I dont know why this happens

EDIT. if i move the sfs files to the root the installation process goes further but then says kernel panic: cannot mount fs to block
IIRC LegacyOS2 is based on puppy 2.14 and should then need on GRUB's kernel line:
Code:
root=/dev/ram0
