Hi, Names Jeff, this is my first post in the puppy forums.
I've played with puppy in virtual box and find it amazingly amazing and wanted to put it on a usb stick to take with me. Well the gparting and installation went off without a hitch, when i proceeded to boot off the usb stick it decided to hang at booting kernel. any ideas? any help is greatly appreciated.

thanks
Jeff

Since the flash drive actually started to boot, you have at least gone over that hurdle. And because it works with your hardware in virtual box, it should also work on the flash drive. Mount the drive and look for the three core Puppy files - vmlinuz, initrd.gz, and pupxxx.sfs. Manually copy them again off the Live CD.

Yes I've been having trouble loading any distro from USB. I will try to copy those files as soon as I get a chance thank you.

flash sticks can misbehave....simply recopying files over can indeed solve the unsolvable

LBA and boot checked?

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=38704

Your specs may help...
hardware and which Puppy version?

Does it boot on another computer.

Puppy 4.2 beta now gives boot options on USB...
Hit F2 after it boots....just type ....p...
Puppy will stop the boot process until you hit enter
or type any of the displayed commands and type enter.

Maybe you have Sata drives.
Works in virtual box because you are enabled for Sata.

Check bios.
F12 boots some.
Other bios need you to nominate the hard drive
to boot from.
Usually under Advanced Options...Hard drive Boot Order.

Others want you to nominate USB or USB hard drive.

but Boot and LBA are crical....none of that
but all of the other posted options = failure.

Chris.
