Ideas? Thanks all. TP November 13, 2009 at 10:41 pm #49104 Thomas_PowersMember Turns out to be something in the machine we were trying to use. I took the drive and put it in another machine and it booted fine. Thanks anyway….please see next USB nic question. Thanks TP February 3, 2010 at 9:09 am #49105 deejayqMember i think the problem is with the bios of your motherboard i had just about the same problem as you and solved it in this post i wrote http://www.zeroshell.net/eng/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1939 you basicaly have to delete the first partition, recreate it fat and use syslinux instead of grub Author Posts Viewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
