Making Kingston Data Traveler DTI/4GB Bootable?
I've tried just about everything under the sun to make this USB stick bootable. Any suggestions from anyone who has gotten this USB stick to boot?
What seems to be the problem. Where does it stop working? I have a Kingston Data Traveller 4GB that wil not boot my notebook, but boots my stationary just fine.
my Kingston Data Traveler 4 GB boots one pc just fine and won't work on my laptop.
I've tried the USBtest scripts and everything on laptops and desktops and still can't get the USB drive to be seen as bootable. I have read "some" flash drives aren't bootable and I guess I've gotten my hands on one that isn't.
Yeah, I have a 2GB Kingston DataTraveller USB Stick and I made it bootable just the other day...
While in windoze: Formatted the USB stick to FAT, extracted .iso, copied the /boot and /BT3 folders to the stick, ran the bootinst.bat in /boot and ... that was it.
It boots smoothly on my ACER laptop but havnt tried it anywhere else. Seems strange that BT isnt booting from something similar..
Updating the syslinux utility to ver. 3.60 worked for my USB drive.

So you just replaced the syslinux on BT3 with version 3.60 and it worked? Or you went another install route?
yup, just replaced the three files.
Kingston DTI with cap is bootable and is detected in PC Bios under HDD or Removeable disk
Kingston DTI slider model is not bootable. Its got something to do with flash design i belive.
