    Default Can't boot on my EEE pc 901

    Greetings all, first time poster here

    I've been searching both the forums and the web up and down for hours now and I just cannot seem to find the answer to my question:

    I have installed BT4 to a USB drive in an attempt to boot to it on my EEE pc 901, however when I get to the splash screen and it starts to load up, I get the following text:

    Code:
    Loading, please wait...
    hub 1-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 7
    sd 4:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive case: write through
    sd 4:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive case: write through
    
    
    BusyBox v1.10.2 (Ubuntu 1:1.10.2-1ubuntu7) built-in-shell (ash)
    Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.
    
    (initramfs)
    and I get a shell that has a very limited set of commands that don't seem to do me much good at all. Like I say I've already done a lot of digging and come up empty handed... any veterans have an idea of what's going on here?

    Looks like a bad install. Will the usb drive boot another computer?

    hmm yeah it doesn't boot on my desktop... I used the windows version of unetbootin and it said it was created properly but I guess not... I'll update this post when I retry it with either the ubuntu version or the windows version again and see what happens.
