*deleted , wrong information*
terminal86, i tried changing the syslinux.cfg file like u said, it still didnt work. is there anyplace where i can find the partition name of my usb drive? as in could it be anything other than sda1?
I think i talked bulls* in my last post... Dont know why i typed this.*ignore it*
Did you try to redo the Installation on your USB drive?
Make sure when u do the bootinst.bat that u are on the right drive!
Check your partitions with fdsik.
yeah, i tried the reinstall many times, it wont boot if i did that bootinst.dat in a different directory, im sure it has something to do with the root=dev/ram0 part of the syslinux file, i just cant find the correct name or directory of the usb stick. is there an easy way to do that in xp? it could be sda1,sda2,sdb etc... i think i just have to find that name.
Perhaps you can find something useful in this thread:
Even u can also try all possibilites (sda1,sda2,sda3,sdb1,sdb2,sdc1,sdc2)
Sry have to go now (finished work for this week)
hi all, i want know how to install BT3 in a usb..I don´t want copy the 2 folders in the usb and click in bootinst.bat, i really want install BT3 in the usb similar to hard disk... sorry for my terribly english but i´m from spain. Thanks for all.
You have to do a regular command line install to the USB disk and add a "rootdelay = 10" option to lilo however this method is not recomended and you USB key will not last long.
