    I used tuxboot to create this usb bootable drive.

    On 3rd step, installing boot loader, I got an error. When running special F:\utils\win32\syslinux.exe on F:, got error "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel."

    Thanks in advance

    Which version of tuxboot did you use there?
    Did you let it do a md5sum check after downloading the file?

    Steven.

    I used tuxboot-windows-21.exe.

    Yes, I checked md5sum box.

    On Windows 7 you need to right click and Run As Administrator.

    Win7 I am trying to create a bootable ISO.
    The ISO does not contain the file utils\win32\syslinux.exe,
    and that is what the "Installing Bootloader" is showing.

    Running special I:\utils\win32\syslinux.exe 33%

    [x] MD5, (*) Predownloaded iso, Running as Administrator
    The USB is formatted FAT32.
    Tuxboot 2.0.1-15-i486 ( this is an x86-64 system )

    I'm rerunning now, and chose the option to replace all.

    Resolved "Running special" ... I just copied utils\win32 from the DRBL .iso to the USB stick, as it was being created.

    My backup plan was to use MagicISO Maker.

    please ignore my last comment, it seems the usb drive could no longer be written (a possible improvement could be to check whether writing has succeeded)

    Had the same problem when trying to make ubuntu-13.10-desktop-amd64.iso with windows 8 32bit (finnish language). Now trying without md5checksum and with windows vista 32bit (english). Tuxboot 0.6. Same results. Cannot open file when running special on utils/win32/syslinux.exe. The usb stick boots but syslinux does not find configuration file and cannot proceed.

    ^ using lili with same iso worked and produced a working bootable usb stick.

    Tried to start tuxboot in Windows 7 but all that happens is a window pops up and quickly goes away. What do I need to do to get it working so I can get clonezilla live working?

     
  • I was able to resolve this using UNetbootin-Win-549 where I think 549 is the build. It seems UNetbootin has a very similar interface to tuxboot only this did not crash out when writing my Win7 boot CD. It did however sit for a VERY long time half way through.. Like REALLY long. I presume it was writing the Windows Image. This leads me to the conclusion that perhaps something is not quite right with Tuxboot. (Remember to run as administrator)

    This is still not working.

    Attempting to Tuxboot (latest version as of today) the Ultimate Boot CD (UBCD) (Latest version as of today) pre-downloaded .iso.
    Tuxboot-0.6.exe
    ubcd530.iso

    Running Tuxboot as Administrator.
    MD5 check is on.
    Everything unpacks and copies over, then when this task is occurring:

    Running special: I:\utils\win32\syslinux.exe on I:

    It gives the "This file does not have a program associated with it..." error.

    Looking into the I: drive... there IS NO I:\utils folder!

    syslinux.exe resides in I:\ubcd\tools\win32\ubcd2usb

    Hope that helps with the debugging of this issue.

      Just check the letter of your usb drive

    RE above post: Attempted identical task with UNetbootin, and it completed successfully without an error -- using a USB key.

    Unfortunately UNetbootin doesn't allow me to select my USB hard drive (Tuxboot did when I selected "Show all drives") so this isn't useful to me in my case.

    FYI using the same USB key, I got the same error with Tuxboot as I did with my USB hard drive. So it's not the device at fault.
