I am a simple man, I have a simple needs. One of those needs happens to be installing mint 7 from on a USB onto a netbook. I don't want to run mint from the usb, I just want to install from it. This was a simple process for Ubuntu (a few mins with Unetboot and I was ready to install) Mint on the other hand, hates me.
I have searched, prodded, formatted and reformatted my USB drive many, many times in the last few hours and the farthest I have gotten was when it went from halting at a single line of text, to halting at two with a CRC error.
After using the the tutorial at http://www.pendrivelinux.com/usb-linux- ... n-windows/
the latest error is Loading /casper/vmlinuz Boot failed: please change disks...blah blah blah I might add that this is not the first time I have tried that tutorial today, and I made sure every single thing that even had to chance to run had the chance to run with as many privileges as it could ever want or need.
I am at the end of my rope, I just want a single tutorial designed for mint 7 that lets me install from a USB, I mean I can not be the only person on this earth who wanted to put Mint on a Notebook with their notorious lack of CD drives.
Boring yet important info:
I am using Windows 7 RC to do the USB bits, and again I am using run as admin as much as I can.
I have tried to make a portable mint in the hopes I can install it once there Loading /casper/vmlinuz Boot failed: please change disks...)
I have tried Unetboot (the latest version, ran as admin, Loading /casper/vmlinuz Boot failed: please change disks...)
I have tried another method that ran similar to a tutorial that pendrive had to install Mint 5 from a usb mixed with a tutorial from another site (Boot Halted, CRC)
I also tried the tutorial on the forum with similar results to the above
