Unetbootin doesn't work

Recommended Posts

hi, I've been trying to check out Bodhilinux(1.1) by booting from a USB stick memory to no avail so far.

I used Unetbootin, which has worked with most distros. But this time, I keep getting this message:

 

(initramfs) stdin: error0

mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on //filesystem.squashfs failed: No such device

can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfs

 

The iso file should be ok. Also, I tried to create a bootable USB drive from Ubuntu, but that didn't work, either.

 

Could anybody tell me what's going wrong?

Format the drive and recreate a new fat32 partition on it and reload the USB using unetbootin.

i think you will find this link useful: https://help.ubuntu....llation%20Media

 

Hot tip 1 : Ubuntu Community Documentation, and the official help documentation has loads of help pages. Use them. The links are https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ and https://help.ubuntu.com/ respectively. (hint: for Bodhi Linux 1.x.y choose Ubuntu 10.04 LTS in the official documentation).

Hot tip 2: ubuntuforums.org has a lot of answered questions

Hot tip 3: site:somedomain.tld will search at that website only, then add things you want to look for at that web site

 

A solution to the syslinux error i get when booting from it, if I try to use usb-creator-gtk (create a startdisk menu item) together with the Bodhi Linux 1.1.0 iso image file:

Hi,

 

Thanx alot for your replies!

 

I redid everything from Ubuntu and this time it booted alright...

(I was using the Win version before.)

 

No Sound and Wireless connection yet, but I'll work on them later.
