Hey everybody,

I am trying to get MACIS to work on a USBHDD. The author gave this hint
Quote:

##English
If you boot Macis from hard drive or U-disk, you must ensure the filenames are lowercase.
Correct example: initrd.lz, vmlinuz, macis_536.sfs
Wrong case: initrd.LZ, VMLINUZ, macis_536.SFS

You don't worry about it if you boot from CD.


I always get this error:

Loading vmlinuz
Could not find ramdisk Image initrd.gz

I checked wether the issue might deal with lowe-/uppercase. As I can see, all is lowercase on the usbhdd...

Any help appreciated to fix this...

Kind regards Soldiaz

Hi soldiaz,

The author seems to be using initrd.lz rather than initrd.gz.

Change your bootloader config file (syslinux.cfg?) to point at initrd.lz
