Hey, im trying to get puppy linux on my freinds netbook. I have tryed booting it from a USB two ways - a general install of a USB, bootflash install, then universal upuppy install, and an install as if it were a hard drive and GRUB on the membrane, and the superblock.

the first way nver even attempted to work, the second stayed at a blank, black screen. It does support USB boot, but it's pretty picky.

I'm still toying around, but is there a specific way i can do it for this type of computer? thanks.

I have an Acer Aspire One Netbook (D255E).
Using a USB stick to boot Puppy 525.

I was making a boot stick for my old compaq laptop.
Tried it in the Acer and it boots fine.

It's been a few months but I think I used the
Bootflash install Puppy to USB.
Accepted defaults from there.

Anyway, it can be done.

FWIW -
1. You can not boot from the built in SD slot.
2. For Puppy to recognize the SD slot I got the
pet package from here.

Hope that's helpful

No, you should probably stick with Windows. Windows help forums are where I'd expect a snotty remark from someone asking for help. Confused

You told that to one of teh most helpful guy in our forum.

I would have been more wordy than he was so I trust you totally misjudged his good intention with that question.

that is easy to do and now the whole thing escalate.

Could you give us some slack and hopefully we give you slack too.

Trust me I have been active on almost every forum there is and this one is the most friendly if one treat us friendly. I've tested that numerous times. search for nooby on Ubuntu or Mint or whatever forum and you see the difference

Settle mate.

An interesting discovery lately....
Acer netbooks won't boot off more than a 4gig usb.

///////

Use Hirens to boot your usb >>>here....3rd last post.

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=58305&start=30

All the needed files are there.
Don't format your hard drive....right.

Hiren's format instructions.

http://www.hiren.info/pages/bootcd-on-usb-disk

Copy grldr and menu.lst from grub4dos.zip
(or from HBCD folder) to the usb drive

The menu I posted is from Falcons boot cd.
But will still work for the different Puppies you extract
to the correct folders >>> Below

I use 7Zip to extract ISO files.

/////////

Acer needs F2 to get into bios.

Allow in the Acer to enable >>multiboot >>> F12

+ >> plus or - >> minus >> to make usb >> the first boot.

My Usb has these folders.
