Have you ever used Bootflash install Puppy to USB?
Hi bigpup, yes, I have been trialling bootflash recently, but once again I am labouring under the weight my inexperience. Smile
In particular, I am working with one usb stick that I have never been able to boot from, and trying the USB-HDD option within bootflash. I seem to get things hanging when it tries to copy the files from the iso. I think I am doing something wrong with the location of the iso, so will be trying again with putting the iso in the root folder, and also with a different usb stick. Will report back when I clear the fog of ignorance from my brow. Smile

Bootflash hangs.
If you are running Bootflash from an installed Puppy.
Try this:
Open Rox file manager
Find the Puppy ISO file and left click on it.
This will mount the ISO file.
Now try Bootflash.

Thanks Bigpup. I have just tried this again and found that as well as being mounted the iso had to be in the root folder. I think this must be why I was having so much trouble before - must have had the iso unmounted and/or in the wrong place.
Just one annoyance though - the bootflash routine did not warn me that both partitions on the usb stick would be overwritten and combined into one. Fortunately I had a backup of all the data lost from the data partition. Trap for young players I guess.

I still need to go back and redo my previous trials using bootflash instead of universal installer to see if it overcomes the two problems I was having. Not just yet though.
