I am trying to boot backtrack on my windows notebook, these are the exact steps I took.
When I boot the USB, the screen just stays black.
Format my USB (4GB) to FAT32.
Afther the format the properties of the USB says that of the 4GB, 3.7GB is left empty
I run UNetbootin in administrator mode, I select the file BT5-KDE-32.ISO.
The file was downloaded from the official website.
I select the USB drive, and I let Unetbootin do its work. It stays at 39% for about 10 minutes, while its bussy with filesystem.squashfs.
It finishes and gives me the option to reboot.
When the notebook starts up again, I press ESC to get to a menu. In that menu I select; "Select boot drive"
From that menu I pick the name of my USB stick 'Freecom'.
Now the screen stays black.
I have left it running for about 15 minutes, and it stayed black.
I use a HP pavilion DV5-1010ed.
What is going wrong?
