XBMC LiveUSB (formerly "LiveXBMC") V1: an USB disk image
#42
jarwha Wrote:Hi,

I had some problems with booting the USB-stick.
1. formatting with HP-USB format program
2. Copying the files to the USB-stick
3. using Syslinux using -ma option in syslinux.exe (instead of -f)

C:\syslinux\win32\syslinux -ma I:

-m = install bootable MBR sector
-a = mark the partition used active
I: is my USB-stick

best regards

I used syslinux in linux, which I've used to make dozens of bootable usb sticks... however I had a problem this time... after trying everything I could think of and then trying again with windows syslinux I started to think I had a bad usb stick... here's the thing, after formatting and reformatting and making a usb stick bootable many times, you can get a corrupt mbr..

I installed lilo and ran lilo -M at the device level /dev/sd* and it fixed it.
