Tip: Flash drive of 9.1, not able to boot initially
« on: Sat Sep 30 17:57:43 2017 »
I did the downloads and ran md5sum

md5sum NuTyX_x86_64-9.1.iso1ad5e9d2554339eebac70684e2da8739  NuTyX_x86_64-9.1.iso

I checked the md5sum and it matched.

On a linux system I wrote the flash drive with

# dd if=NuTyX_x86_64-9.1.iso of=/dev/sdd
505856+0 records in
505856+0 records out
258998272 bytes (259 MB) copied, 129.739 s, 2.0 MB/s

*TIP*:  To test the iso on the flash drive i run
# cmp -n `stat -c '%s' NuTyX_x86_64-9.1.iso` NuTyX_x86_64-9.1.iso /dev/sdd

It turned out that the first flash drive was bad

When I try to boot I do get the boot prompt, but when I press enter I get

Starting initrd...
[    8.074365] usb 1-1: device descriptor read/64, error -110
could not mount device

error about the usb flash drive

So I power down and boot again, this time with debug, and this time it boots

The machine is a Dell D620 laptop with 2gb memory

When I try it on my Dell I7-7559 laptop it also has the same problem.

There is no critical problem to fix. 

*TIP*: If booting with enter key doesn't work, try debug option.

My Dell D620 is installed and running :)

I did so, it turned out.

Code: [Select]



  if [ ! -e "$CWD/$NAMEDISTRO/$ISONAME" ];then
  fi )

mkdir -p /mnt/nutyx_image
mount -o loop $CWD/$NAMEDISTRO/$ISONAME /mnt/nutyx_image
mkdir -p /mnt/usb_stick
mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/usb_stick

cp -R /mnt/nutyx_image/isolinux/boot /mnt/usb_stick
cp -f /mnt/nutyx_image/isolinux/ /mnt/usb_stick
cp -f /mnt/nutyx_image/isolinux/boot.msg /mnt/usb_stick
cp -f /mnt/nutyx_image/isolinux/initrd /mnt/usb_stick
cp -f /mnt/nutyx_image/isolinux/isolinux.bin /mnt/usb_stick
cp -f /mnt/nutyx_image/isolinux/kernel /mnt/usb_stick
cp -f /mnt/nutyx_image/isolinux/isolinux.cfg /mnt/usb_stick/syslinux.cfg

syslinux /dev/sdc1
