Subject description: Drive is not Bootable
 

I've been a satisfied user of Puppeee on my 2g surf for about a month and decided to try to create a jump drive version of Fluppy 3.0 for use on my work Lenova S10e netbook.

Based on the instructions listed on the puppeee site I'd assume that the installer script is failing. I'm using bootinst.sh since I'm doing it from a puppeee machine. The shell script has the following message prior to closing:

./boot/syslinux/syslinux: possibly unsafe /tmp/ permissions
Disk /dev/sdb1 should be bootable now. Installation finished.

I've tried booting it from both the 2g Surf and the Lenova Atom and I get the error that 'Drive is not Bootable' I've also tried using ext2, ext3 and FAT32 on this jump drive to no avail. Any suggestions?

Hmmmm....I don't use Pupeee... right now on this laptop I'm using Puppy 4.2.1, but I've used most versions of Puppy.

I know in the menu there is Menu>System>Puppy Universal Installer.

Did you use that? Confused

I had many USB drives work and many not. Sometimes it's the drive itself that needs to be remastered to allow it to be bootable, sometimes the bios, etc. But having Puppy do all the work is the way to go rather than manually doing it, so lets track down the right script...
