    Default BT3 install on U3 4GB Titanium

    I was wondering if someone could help me get BT3 installed on my U3 4GB Titanium. I have it working fine on another non U3 drive. I used these instructions: h t t p : / / wiki.remote-exploit.org/index.php/Howto:USB_Stick . Honestly I have used many other resources, but I feel I have exhausted them. I have removed the U3 launchpad from my drive with a removal tool. I have also used a guide to create 4 partitions. 1 for BT3, 1 for Swap, 1 for changes, and 1 for who knows what (fat32). Basically I don't know what to do anymore. The Bios recognizes the U3 drive, but skips over it when booting, even though its set to boot first. Any help would be much appreciated.

    I've seen the U3 stuff really **** up the back|track boot process. I've not tried it with the portable apps stuff yet though. Oh, pull that swap partition off the drive if you want it to last very long.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Thanks for the insight. Do you know how remove the U3 stuff you are talking about? I all ready used a tool called launchpadremoval.exe Version 1.0.2.32 from San Disk. I suppose I can remove the swap partition, but it is a moot point if I can't boot off the drive.

    Bump..... I am positive someone on here has experianced/solved this problem. I was thinking about make a 1.44 MB partition and loading DOS to somehow get to backtrack. Trying to trick the computer into thinking its a floppy disk. Any help would be much appreciated.

    I guess we are not allowed to just bump threads here. What is the acceptable protocol bringing something back to the front of the stack without recreating a thread again and again?

    Has anyone got BT to run on any U3 device? Did you have any similar problems? Does someone know enough about flash drives, BIOSs, and BT to help me figure it out?
