I have a USB drive of 4 GB and I want to make the drive as bootable. I used the command /sbin/mkbootdisk --device /dev/sdb1 "kernal version" ( sdb1 is my pen drive).When i ran this cmd,it gave me an error saying not enough space to write.
My karmic ubuntu studio will no longer boot. I believe I may have intermittent hard drive issues. I've backed up all my important files so I'm not extremely worried; however, I would like to try to get my setup bootable once more. I've reinstalled grub, and on trying to boot, I get the grub kernel selection. Regardless of what I choose, the system won't boot. I believe grub is alright, but something else is not. What else could I try to make it boot again? I've mounted the drive, chrooted to it, updated and upgraded, but it still won't boot. I may be doing that wrong, or there may be something else I need to do.

I downloaded the Fedora-15-i386-DVD.iso and want to install Fedora 15 from it. I don't want to use the LiveCD version since it doesn't have all the packages. So I follow the tutorial given here under the section titled "How to Make a bootable USB Drive to Install Fedora instead of using a physical DVD ". Everything finishes off well. However. when I boot my computer using the USB, it says "USB doesn't have operating system. Safely remove and reboot".
Now, what to do? I also didn't get the line the tutorial saying, "You should now have a bootable USB stick which will run an 15 install. When you boot the stick, you may also add askmethod to the boot line and select a hard drive install and select the drive as /dev/sdb1 (or your USB device drive) and the path should be / " What am I supposed to do?

When I set "USB flash drive" as a first bootable device in BIOS, I get SYSLINUX "boot:" prompt and it loads both "vmlinuz" and "initrd.gz", but finally I end up in BusyBox prompt and following message:
"Check root= bootarg cat /proc/cmdline or missing modules, devices: cat /proc/modules ls /dev ALERT! does not exist. Dropping to a shell!"
Last boot message which I see is "Attached scsi generic sg2 type 0".what might cause such behavior? Did I miss anything while preparing USB flash drive?
I am trying to boot from an external hard drive, and have tried to use unetbootin like I used when crating a bootable usb drive but it does not see my external and will not create bootbale iso for me to run from my external hard drive.
I want to make a live USB drive, perhaps even 1 with its own GRUB and a choice of operating systems..Its 16gb so it will fit..or maybe just install multiple desktop environments so I can switch depending on the resoruces of the computer I am using..Gnome>E17>LXDE.But I want it to be a regular account with a root/administrator password, ect. When I use the Startup disk creator or Unetbootin I find that the results are pretty limited. I might as well be using a live CD, but thats not ideal. Alternately, when I just install normally it doesnt always load, even when I hit F8 and tell it to boot from my USB drive.Knoppix based distros seem to work better than Ubuntu based distros in this regard, but I dont want Knoppix I want Ubuntu/Mint and friends.Finally, I have sometimes been having problems 'mounting' or using 'swapon'. Even when I turn on Swap with Gparted Im still not getting the benefit of the large swap area I have created..is this because of how the operating system uses swap? Is there a live distro that will save files and settings to swap before using up ram, by default? If not, is there a way to change the behavior of Ubuntu Live CD?
Is there a reason why we cant make proper paragraphs? Is this site strapped for bandwidth or something? Is the site just acting funny?
I just brought a netbook(1005HA) and wanted to try out Ubuntu netbook remix 10.04 but I clean installed it.I like it but there are programs on Windows that I need to use for my HD2.

I am having a problem making an iso image using mkisofs. I currently have all the files I want to make a RHEL5.2 iso image from in /tmp/RHEL5.2-server-x86_64. There are the typical directories needed for a RHEL distro in here.
Cluster ClusterStorage images isolinux Server VT. In the isolinux directory I have the following files:
I was able to build an image earlier off of this, only to find that I didnt create a bootable iso :-( and have to start the process over again. I am trying to make a bootable iso of RHEL5.2, and here is the command I am passing, but it is throwing an error:
i want to setup multiple xen on a remote server in a datacenter, this is first time i am doing it, i want to know when we do it on a local machine it asks for bootable DVD to be inserted, but that can't be done on a remote server, so is there a way we can give it the path of some directory which behaves as a bootable dvd and install the os
If I dd copy a bootable usb drive to an iso will the iso be bootable?
I haven't tried it yet, but i'm going to. Heres the situation and tell me if I'm crazy.
I have several bootable CDs I use at work to do different things, so I went ahead and made a multi-boot usb stick with the isos on them and everything is golden. When i need something else, I am able to slap the ISO on the usb stick, edit the menu.lst and I'm good to go.
The problem is, for some of our equipment I have a bootable USB stick that I have to use. I tried copying the files on the bootable USB to my multi-boot usb and setup grub to boot it (which admittedly I'm no expert at), but have had no luck.
So now I'm thinking, I'll use dd to copy the bootable USB stick to an iso (using bs=2048) and then do my normal setup with an ISO and maybe it will work.
I just booted one of my computers from a usb drive I had installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to, and when I booted it up on that computer, it worked fine. Then, when I powered down the computer and booted it back up to the main hard drive, it booted to the same that my flash drive was running, but my flash drive was not plugged in!! How is this possible? Did it copy itself over my other operating system? There is no trace of it. By the way, that, too, was ubuntu 10.04.
