    Default Hanging before boot?

    I got this finnaly working on a usb key, with save changes.
    I had been doing it all through vmware, due to lack of cd's, and not wanting to accidentally ruin this computer while I was at it.
    Anyway, I can boot off my USB key in vmware fine, Using the USB key as the harddrive. But when I boot from my USB, At startup. Itll just hang after ive chosen the USB key to boot from. I know I CAN boot from USB, Because I could do it when I had just the normal usb live "cd" on it.
    Just isnt booting with the save changes added.
    Any ideas? If that made sense.

    Did you:

    A) Make the "changes=" edit for the syslinux configuration file?
    B) Create the "changes" directory?

    Yes, Did both of those.

    EDIT::
    Thats odd.
    I just got up, Booted it up in VMWare using the USB Key as the harddrive again, Now im just getting a blank screen.

    I decided to just start again from scratch. After a few more tries, I got it working.
    I might later write a guide on it. With like, some errors they could get, and workarounds.

    Thanks for the help :3
