    Default Error while loading BackTrack5 from USB.

    Hello,

    I'm trying out BackTrack for the first time. I wanted to install it on my 8GB pendrive. As outlined in the wiki I've downloaded the ISO, formatted my pen drive and installed the iso on USB. It installed well.

    When I'm trying to boot from it. It stuck in a loop of these errors:

    47.___ fbcon: radeondrmfb (fb0) is primary device
    47.___ console: switching to color frame buffer device 100x37
    47.___ fb0: radeondrmfb frame buffer device
    47.___ drm: registered panic notifier
    47.___ [drm] initialized radeon 2.9.0 20080528 for 0000:01:05.0 on minor 0
    47.103 end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0

    ---- end: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0
    ---- Buffer I/O error on device fd0, logical block
    ...
    ...
    It stuck in a loop of these 2 errors. What might be the problem?

    try to install linux live usb creator. its free, easy to use, and 100% sure that your pendrive will work.
