How to make a wakepup2 floppy disk
With a formatted 1.44MB diskette in the floppy drive, do one of the following:
1) In DOS/Windows, unzip WKPUP202.ZIP in a temp dir and execute MAKEDISK.BAT
2) In Linux, copy WKPUP202.ZIP to a temp dir and execute:
# unzip WKPUP202.ZIP
# dd if=WKPUP202.IMG of=/dev/fd0 bs=1440k
I have provided the marker files IDEHD, USBHD and USBFLASH for convenience on the wakepup2 floppy. Just copy the one you need to the drive you want to boot from containing the Puppy2 files INITRD.GZ, PUP_xxx.SFS and VMLINUZ. The CD-ROM doesn't need a marker file.
Examples of booting Puppy2 with wakepup2:
- Boot from a built-in hard disk: copy the IDEHD marker file to the drive containing the Puppy2 files, then boot using wakepup2.
- Boot from a USB hard disk: copy the USBHD file to the drive containing the Puppy2 files, then boot using wakepup2.
- Boot from a USB flash pen: copy the USBFLASH file to the drive containing the Puppy2 files, then boot using wakepup2.
- Boot from a built-in IDE or external USB CD-ROM: no marker file is needed - wakepup2 should find the Puppy2 files anyway.
wakepup2 will pause after the USB driver has scanned for USB devices. If it detects one, it will print a short id string. If not, it will print "Target USB device not found".
- wakepup2 can only find Puppy2 files on DOS (FAT16 or FAT32) formatted partitions.
- wakepup2 does not seem to work with some USB flash drives. Check Puppy Linux Wiki for tips on working USB flash drives.
- If wakepup2 cannot find your USB flash device, it may help to re-format it (FAT16)
