    Default BackTrack 4 R1 Live USB ?

    Hi guys.
    I've got a question to you. I use a netbook without cd-rom, so I cant use a Live CD and DVD distro's. My last chance is a Live USB version. I made a live USB of BackTrack 4 Final, but I don't know one think - Can I make a Live USB version of BackTrack 4 R1 ? It's important for me, 'cause I really need BackTrack distro to work.

    I remember that UNetbootin support only Final version, so that's why I'm asking you.

    Download the R1 .iso and select the choose iso function in unetbootin. It should work, as long as the usb is formatted as FAT32 and is at least 4GB

    sagaci, not exacly. I remember when I was fighting with other linux distro, de facto non-supported by UNnetbootin. It didn't work, but I chose ISO File function. But I hope this time it'll work fine. I'm still downloading the BackTrack 4 R1 via torrent. I'm going to advise you about results.

    It's me again.
    I downloaded 4 R1 and made a Live USB version using UNetbootin. Everything you need is to select ISO file with BackTrack 4 R1 distro. After reboot BT4 sees my card (iwconfig) and there's no problem to go further .
    Now I'm going to shop for a new 4gb pendrive, 'cause now I'm working at SD card and SD adapter .

    UNetbootin supports BackTrack 4 R1.

    Thanks guys, cheers.

    Unetbootin works great for me with the R1 iso. Choose the "ISO" option.

    Also, installing BT4r1 with persistent changes on USB works great for me, as described in our howto page - http://www.infosecramblings.com/back...changesnessus/

    Just wanted to add that this works well for me also. Unetbooting with XP works flawless. However, i had a friend that this did not work at all for him with two of his thumbdrives from his machine. However i gave him my stick and he tried the unetbooting process again and it worked. So it turned out that the cheap thumb drives that he bought from some Chinese store were not able to boot BT4. If anyone encountered such an issue where unetbooting copies all the files succesfully but fails to boot BT4 from the thumb drive, i suggest that you try another thumb drive (i use a sandisk 8G) and don't rule out the problem to be unetbooting that easily.


    PS: The symptoms that were exhibited from the cheap drives that couldn't boot up the OS was a blank black screen that hung there with the "_" keyboard character at the top left of the screen.
