hi to all,

i was trying to install puppy linux slacko 5.3.1 (live cd) on a fresh 2 gb usb but without any luck

after almost twenty minutes the linux is still showing copy files on usb.....

i am sure that i have followed the correct procedure through puppy linux menu

desktop fujitsu esprimo p5720 with 1 gb ddr2 ram

i am not quite sure if my ami bios v.6.0.4.1 have any option to boot from usb

puppy linux slack is running perfectly as a live cd

Hi nickko,

How exactly are you trying to install Puppy?

Puppy universal installer?

Frugal installation?

With a bootable USB plugged in, if it doesn't show up as a removable device in the boot priority menu, see if it shows up in the HDD menu in the BIOS.

If your computer won't boot from USB, the best you will be able to do is create a save file on USB and move the Puppy sfs file to USB as well. Then everything but the boot files will be on USB.

good afternoon to all

i wish to thank all for the replies

the first time i have tried to install puppy linux on usb was without the universal installer but after that i was lucky enough to install puppy linux on usb

the problem now is my bios (ami bios v.6.0.4.1 for intel) could not see the usb

i have changed my bios settings to boot from any usb device (the default setting was for usb keyboard/ mouse only)

after that when i rebooted my pc i had to select something like boot from pci ? device in order to boot into puppy linux

i have to buy a hard disk to install linux but till then is not really a convenient way to boot from usb

it is better to run linux from live cd
