First of all great job on the new Backtrack version! I really enjoyed BT 4 r2 but am looking forward to this new version.
I did the folowing:
- formated the usb drive /dev/sdb1 to fat32
- used the latest unetbootin on Arch linux 64 bit
- downloaded the torrent file and downloaded the iso file afterwards
- run a:
[vanesmic@seraphim BT5-GNOME-64]$ md5sum BT5-GNOME-64.iso
[vanesmic@seraphim BT5-GNOME-64]$ cat BT5-GNOME-64.txt
But when I try to boot from it on my Dell Alienware M11x it says operating system not found and tries the following boot option.
I hope I did something wrong but am affraid that there is something wrong with the iso?
The usb shows a lot of files, so it extracted everything just fine, perhaps grub did not run or such?
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
Well I only have a usb port/stick and the recommended way is doing it the way I did if I follow the wiki/howto's....
well you should try all the possible solutions first. burn it to dvd.
Indeed, burning the .iso on a real DVD worked for me.
Are you blind?
He told he dont have dvd rom
i am having the same problem but i'm booting it from a virtual machine it boots but when i select what mode to start the screen goes black and nothing happens
Try also to download the iso again, mine was corrupted and I lost 1 day trying to install it without success.
Make sure you check the hash against the download to confirm its not a corrupted file. Then try downloading it again if they don't match.
As for @jFcOOd, there are other threads related to this issue and has nothing to do with his unetbootin issue. Try adding "nomodeset" to your grub boot commands, or if you have the intel chipset "i915.modeset=1", or selecting a different VGA value for your monitor size - http://www.pendrivelinux.com/vga-boo...en-resolution/
One thing to remember is that with new bugs, others will probably have already opened threads with similar issues, search before posting a new thread or putting another unrelated bug in the wrong thread so they can track them properly.
