#12 Don't want boot



I used TuxBoot V. 0.5 for Windows, no problem. Same with version 0.4 for 32 bit Xubuntu 12.04, no problem.

While the version V. 0.4 64 bit Linux Mint problem: in fact, when I try to use the created key, and she does not want to boot, error loading...

Do you see the problem ?

    Is this problem still on Tuxboot 0.6?

      Hi Steven,

      First of all, I beg you to excuse me for the delay in responding.

      In fact, I changed my job and now I do not have time to test as before.

      So I have to do the tests on certain days or at home.

      So for TuxBoot, I'll tell you tonight if it works.

    I tried Tuxboot 0.6 on Linux Mint 15 64bit, but the USB drive won't boot.
    It says "This is not a bootable disk. Please insert a bootable floppy and press a key to try again..."
    I tried to run makeboot.sh, but I can't make it executable on the USB drive. I copied the whole USB drive to my HDD, did a chmod 744 on makeboot.sh, extlinux and syslinux and ran sudo bash makeboot /dev/sdd1
    This is the result:

    This command will install MBR and syslinux bootloader on this machine
    Machine: EP45-UD3LR:
    Disk /dev/sdd: 259 MB, 259653632 bytes
    145 heads, 49 sectors/track, 71 cylinders, total 507136 sectors
    Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

    Are you sure you want to continue?
    [y/n] y
    OK! Let's do it!
    File system of /dev/sdd1: vfat
    Do you want to install mbr on /dev/sdd on this machine "EP45-UD3LR" ?
    [y/n] y
    OK! Let's do it!
    Do you want to install the SYSLINUX bootloader on /dev/sdd1 on this machine "EP45-UD3LR" ?
    [y/n] y
    OK! Let's do it!
    We need a filesystem supporting Unix file mode for syslinux. Copying syslinux from FAT to /tmp/...
    '/home/wim/CloneZilla/utils/linux/syslinux' -> '/tmp/syslinux_tmp.KjbwNO/syslinux'
    Running: /tmp/syslinux_tmp.KjbwNO/syslinux -fs -i /dev/sdd1 
    makeboot.sh: line 256: /tmp/syslinux_tmp.KjbwNO/syslinux: No such file or directory
    //NOTE// If your USB flash drive fails to boot (maybe buggy BIOS), try to use "syslinux -fs /dev/sdd1", i.e. running with "-s".

    The USB drive itself works, it has been used before as bootable device.
    I also tried to format the USB as NTFS, but then the Drive drop-down in Tuxboot remains empty. Ticking "Show All Drives" lets me choose sdd1, but when booting, it says "Missing operating system".

    Something isn't quite right...

    I get the exact same issue with Linux Mint 15 x64. USB won't boot...

    "This is not a bootable disk. Please insert a bootable floppy and press a key to try again..."

    Tried two thumb drives that were once used for booting Linux Mint distros.

    Please help.

    Best Regards,

    I have the same problem on Ubuntu 12.04 64bit.

    "This is not a bootable disk. Please insert a bootable floppy and press a key to try again..."

    Gparted live didn't boot. Did several reinstalls, the best I got was missing operating system but moe often just got black screen with ticking coursor on top left.
    Finally succeeded with unetbootin or what was its name.

    Does it be the same with usign Tuxboot 0.7 ?
    I have tried the latest version gparted iso : 0.19.0-1-i486.iso , it's worked with Tuxboot 0.7 in Linux environment.

    I got it!
    For my system the problem was that i have 64-bit system, so it had no way to run i386 library "syslinux" (on manual way bash wrote "no such file or directory"), so i never got to create bootable usb nor with unibootin nor with tuxboot nor manually.
    SO i just installed libc6-i386 with apt-get install and it worked
