You need to determine how Unetbootin works on your hard drive.

Is there a file called syslinux.cfg somewhere? If so, please post it here.

If not, you need to find what other menu file that Unetbootin is using.

Where are the other Puppy files located on your hard drive?

Unetbootin creates a folder inside C:/ called unetbtin

inside this folder are;

boot.txt (contains boot loader)
bootnw.txt (contains boot loader)

menu.lst ~(contains;

default 0
timeout 10

title UNetbootin
find --set-root /unetbtin/ubnkern
kernel /unetbtin/ubnkern pmedia=usbflash
initrd /unetbtin/ubninit
boot

title puppy
find --set-root /vmlinuz
kernel /vmlinuz pmedia=usbflash
initrd /initrd.gz
boot


ubnfilel.txt (contains;

boot.cat
boot.msg
help.msg
help2.msg
initrd.gz
isolinux.bin
isolinux.cfg
logo.16
lupu_528.sfs
vmlinuz

ubnpathl.txt (empty text document)
ubninit
ubnkern

Puppy cannot find its sfs file because it is only looking for a flash drive.

Change this to "pmedia=atahd".

Which of the two menu entries are you using?
