I have created a bootable USB with Lucid Puppy, but everytime I boot it up I get the message of lupu_528.sfs not found even though the file is inside the USB.

Do any of you know how to fix the issue?

I've heard of/seen that when the .ISO image was corrupted. Can you check the image against the CD?

I use imgburn under Windows to do my disk burning -- it default checks the integrity.

How did you create the USB install?
Details?
What program did the install?

What is your computer?
Name and model?

Tried using a different USB port?

Use a different usb port.

Taking out the printer cable sometimes helps.

"""""""""''

See my posts here.

On my Quad core desktop I had this happen....

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=96875&start=90

On the other dual core 2.5 desktop both Puppies refuse to
see the sfs files. for Lucid 5.28.

Just tested a 2014 Super Lupu on the dual core..it boots.
no problems.

Something as simple as trying a different brand of
usb can achieve results.

Yes! I know it sounds crazy.

I created the bootable USB with Unetbootin.
My laptop is an ASUS GW750 (Windows8)

I really did not try using a different USB port, I'll try that out, thanks.

cthisbear:

I'll look into the thread. Thanks for the advice on USBs



I'll update you guys if your advice works or not.

Thanks again.

Using different USB ports does not work, unfortunately.

I used Virtualbox to see if there was a problem with the ISO but it seemed to work fine. Not lupu_528.sfs issue so I thought it was the USB and used a different USB, a Sandisk. Still the same problem, so I decided to used another linux distro, Lubuntu, and it worked alright with the same USB as before.

First, Puppy versions are not designed to work on every possible computer.
That is why there are so many versions.

So, sometimes you have to try a few to find the best fit for your hardware.

For your computer you need to be using one of the newest versions of Puppy.

Example:
Tahrpup 6.0.2
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=96178

You say you are trying Lucid 5.2.8, but there are a lot of newer versions of Lucid Puppy.
Lucid 5.2.8 was bug fixed by Lucid 5.2.8.005
You may be trying to use one of the buggy versions of Lucid.

Now Lucid is updated to Lucid 5.2.8.7
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=90461
You need to use one of the lupusuper versions.

Try this:

Look on the flash drive for the file syslinux.cfg. If it contains the clause "pmedia=cd" or something else, change it to "pmedia=usbflash".

Example:
syslinux.cfg

Code:
default puppy
display boot.msg
prompt 1
timeout 50

F1 boot.msg
F2 help.msg
F3 help2.msg

label puppy
kernel vmlinuz
append initrd=initrd.gz pmedia=cd

Changing it from cd to usbflash did not work.

I tried using the tahrpup ISO and it worked. unfortunately I cant access my documents and settings folder from puppy linux. Says the files are NTFS and are read only.

If this computer has UEFI and Windows 8.

In UEFI settings look for an option to turn off or Disable secure-boot.

Also, you may see an option for legacy boot or something like that in the UEFI settings.

If your UEFI/Legacy BIOS has an option for Quick Boot, disable it when using Legacy.

This usually indicates that the program in Puppy that accesses NTFS file systems has detected something wrong with the file system.
When that happens, it will only access as read only.

Need to check the NTFS partition using Windows tools.

With Windows 8 it is not a good idea to do anything to the hard drive partition Windows uses, by using another operating system like Linux..
In fact, may not be too good to do anything to the hard drive.

Windows 8 looks for the hard drive to be the same as when it last shutdown.
