I have downloaded a couple of Puppies to my Acer laptop and have had some issues with creating a bootable USB combo thumb drive. How can I go about transferring the .iso to another machine that 'might' be more agreeable? Can I simply put the .iso on a thumb drive and load it into a different PC?
Thanks,
Joe

I just got done downloading an iso. I copied it to a thumbdrive. I then burned my iso from that thumdrive to a dvd. I booted my new dvd. Everything went fine, so copying did not mess up anything in the process. You should be ok copying it wherever.

Joe it is perfectly fine to move, copy, and email an .iso.
If you have a cd burner why not first burn the .iso to the cd, boot it then from there use the puppy "universal installer" and install it to your USB that way.

I did that and it works fine on my Acer. I have several older PC's that don't like to boot to a thumb drive in the "normal" manner, so I was trying to create a "Combo Format" thumb drive using the BootFlash, but it didn't work. I started a thread elsewhere about it and had some excellent help from Bigpup as he walked me through the procedure. We are thinking it may be a hardware problem, so I want to give it a try on a different machine.

Have you tried changing your boot device priority in your bios? 1st boot USB, 2nd boot CD, then hard disk at the end?
