    Unhappy BT3 USB cant boot from my stick

    Hello guys, I have a new notebook without dvd-drive. So I wanne install bt3 with my usb-stick.
    But..when my laptop boot from the stick, i can see the fluxbox, but no commando works. I see a flashing underline. This are the the last 11 lines:
    Code:
    starting Linux Live scripts <hxxp_//linux-live.org/>
    * starting loop device support
    * starting cdrom filesystem support
    * starting squashfs support
    * starting aufs support with brs=1
    * starting vfat support
    * starting ntfs support
    * creating /dev enteries for block devices
    * starting USB support
    * starting PCMCIA CardBus support
    * looking for data directory
    Than i can type a commando, but npthing will be accepted.
    I did it this way:
    fat32 stick->unrar the .ISO->copy to the stick the 2 folders->start the bootinst.bat

    I'm sure, that its working on my notebook. But at since somedays no way to come to the login.

    Who can help me?

    I would check MD5 of the ISO, seems that your download was broken. I use this one.

    You need to make sure the folder containing backtrack is named exactly BT3. I once had problems with the exact same behavior during boot from the stick when the folder name was changed.

    I don't think this has any impact, I'm using ubuntu as mainsystem on my linux-notebook and have no problems booting backtrack3 from either cd or usb.

    If you boot from am removable device it doesn't matter what OS is installed to the harddrive.

    Hmm shit, today I installed winxp again..but nothing. You say it.
    Befor 4 days, I made 3 partions on my usb-stick (Fat32,EXT3,SWAP)
    Than when I boot, only a blackscreencome. Can it be, that my stick is "damaged"?
