How big is the usb drive?
When i use Unetbootin, where i copy BT to my pendrive and try too boot from it, i get alot of errors..
I cant copy/paste the errors, but the system dosent boot all the way.. I get the grup loader, but then 10 sec. later, it stops after showing me alot of fails..
I can boot from the iso in vmware, but a clean boot wont let me.
I dont think its hardware spesific.. But what do i know..

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
I think, you should try not to use unebootin. i'm doing fine with manual installation for boot able usb pendrive. search for the video at offensive security website. there is video about how to make boot able persistent usb pendrive bt4 pre final.
What would people suggest to get it working on SD card?
I bought a 2gig card so i don't have to write over my BT4 beta which is also on a 2gig SD.
I have the beta set up how i like it and only saving a new lzm when needed, anything else (documents) just gets written to my eeepc701's internal memory.
My pendrive is 4gb.
Im using unetbootin 344
Im using the fre-final iso.
Intel Centrino 2x2.5
PS: my dvd +Rw will not read my dvd disk's, (yeah cheap ones) so i cant load BT first.. My only chance is to boot via pendrive..
In bt4 beta
Format the 4gig become 1500MB vfat, and the rest using ext3 format. you can look "how to" with googling. make first 1500MB bootable (using fdisk when you format the usb, code : a )
after that mount the usb, then:Code:mkfs.vfat -F32 -n <name you want> /dev/<your first partition 1500MB> mkfs.ext3 -b 4096 -L casper-rw /dev/<your second partition on usb>
after all the data copied,Code:rsync -avh <bt4prefinal data> <your target usb first partition 1500MB>
after that run nano or kate or something else you like, read the /mnt/<your usb first partition 1500MB>/boot/grub/menu.lstCode:grub-install --no-floppy --root-directory=/mnt/<your usb first partition 1500MB example sdb1 sdc1 sda1> /dev/<your usb example sdb sdc sda>
change default 0 to default 4 and look at start persistent Live cd, append vga=0x317 at the and on line that starting with kernel.
It will look like this:
save and boot with that usb, there is your usb live persistent.Code:title Start Persistent Live CD kernel /boot/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper persistent rw quiet vga=0x317 initrd /boot/initrd.gz
Nice english man ... That have to been said, sorry. See dev/nul thread, but you´ve to be glad, you ´re on the internet...
Anyway, is your Bios updated?
