    Default could not find kernel image menu.c32

    I have an asus eee pc 1005HA. I am trying to boot backtrack from a usb drive. I followed the steps on the website....

    formatted to fat32
    used unetbootin with the bt4-final.iso file (located on the usb drive)
    restarted, went into bios and set the usb drive as the bootable device.

    then when it starts I get this message
    could not find kernel image menu.c32

    and it keeps printing it to the screen repeatedly about every 5 seconds. I see a menu.lst in the boot/grub directory and it looks like it has automatically placed a menu.c32 on my usb drive but it is size 0kb. Suggestions? I'm running windows xp right now. Thanks.

    Start over and try again.
    Probably the easiest way.

    I had the same problem. Turns out it was due to using a 2 gig flash drive; seems BT4 with the couple extra boot files from unetbootin comes in just over that amount, so the last couple get written zero length.

    Not sure if there's a file in there isn't essential and can be deleted to free up space, but I'm thinking you'll just have to do like me and track down a larger usb stick.
