    Default BT5 can't install

    downloaded BT5-KDE-32.iso from both direct and torrent sites

    downloaded BT5-GNOME-32.iso direct

    Checked md5 on all 3 iso's all OK

    Used unetbootin-win-549 to make a USB using all the 3 above iso's all with the same results
    USB boots (both in eeepc and HP laptop ) and displays the BT5 logo screen.
    pressing ESC shows begine mounting root file system
    begine running /scripts/casper-premount

    Can't do anything else

    eeepc does not have CD so I created a live CD using ISO burner on XP box but this refuses to boot Tried all 3 iso's that I down loaded all the same.

    Repeated the same as above this time using BT4 and it works ever time, both USB and live CD.
    Any ideas or poiter please.

    Cool Re: BT5 can't install

    I had the exact same problem as well. I fixed this problem by formatting and deleting my Sandisk Cruzer flash drive's U3 software that is built into the flash drive. I used this utility to get rid of the software: I then used YUMI (I assume unetbootin would work too) and installed Backtrack 5 R1 and I no longer experienced the problem. I can run Backtrack as a live OS now!
