    I've attempted to edit sys.cfg on my usb stick which is 8gb. after loading the BT5 r2 os and starting gui with startx it still going blank.

    here's my sys.cfg.

    Code:
    default menu.c32
    prompt 0
    menu title UNetbootin
    timeout 300
    
    label unetbootindefault
    menu label Default
    kernel /ubnkern
    append initrd=/ubninit file=/cdrom/preseed/custom.seed boot=casper text splash vga=791--
    
    label ubnentry0
    menu label BackTrack Text - Default Boot Text Mode
    kernel /casper/vmlinuz
    append initrd=/casper/initrd.gz xforcevesa noapic noapci nosplash irqpoll file=/cdrom/preseed/custom.seed boot=casper  text splash removed this portion as well vga=791-- //went to edit this one
    
    label ubnentry1
    menu label BackTrack Stealth - No Networking enabled
    kernel /casper/vmlinuz
    append initrd=/casper/initrds.gz file=/cdrom/preseed/custom.seed boot=casper  text splash staticip vga=791--
    
    label ubnentry2
    menu label BackTrack Forensics - No Drive or Swap Mount
    kernel /casper/vmlinuz
    append initrd=/casper/initrdf.gz file=/cdrom/preseed/custom.seed boot=casper  text splash vga=791--

    append initrd=/casper/initrd.gz file=/cdrom/preseed/custom.seed boot=casper  text splash nomodeset vga=791--

    menu label BackTrack Debug - Safe Mode
    kernel /casper/vmlinuz
    append initrd=/casper/initrd.gz file=/cdrom/preseed/custom.seed boot=casper  text--

    I have gotten grub to show and attempted to edit there but having failed a number of times I went to edit via config file on my windows desktop prior to loading on my laptop repeatedly.

    I'd like to thank the both of you for assistance!

    file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper initrd=/casper/initrd.gz

    I am using a live cd. I don't get a grub to edit. If I press tab nothing happens. How do I enter the grub with the shown line above?

    I have also opend the file in notepad file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed.
    All I see is this: # Only install the standard system and language packs.
    tasksel tasksel/first multiselect
    d-i pkgsel/language-pack-patterns string
    # No language support packages.
    d-i pkgsel/install-language-support boolean false

    I am lost
