I just bought a new motherboard which has BIOS and UEFI. I have a previously working LiveCD installed on my usb, created with LiveUSB Creator. I tried using it to boot but got stuck at the grub command line. Next, I followed the instructions here to create a new LiveCD using
livecd-iso-to-disk command line method with the following options
--format --reset-mbr --efi --overlay-size-mb 600. I did the install on the second partition of my usb stick with 2GB allocated to this. Then I check that the partition is indeed bootable using
parted. However, the boot process was again halted at grub with the following errors:
error: file `/isolinux/vmlinuz0' not found.
error: you need to load the kernel first.
Is this my problem or the motherboard problem? How do I go about solving it?
This appears to be a file/folder naming issue with some motherboards not able to find the kernel. I did the following renaming:
/syslinux to /isolinux /isolinux/syslinux.cfg to /isolinux/isolinux.cfg
I manage to get the kernel to load. But it got stuck at
dracut, this time with the following warnings:
dracut-initqueue: Warning: Could not boot. dracut-initqueue: Warning: /dev/disk/by-label/Fedora-18-x86_64-Live-Desktop.is does not exist dracut-initqueue: Warning: /dev/mapper/live-rw does not exist
I am wondering if this is again a naming issue. Why is it looking for
.is instead of
.iso? Anyone has any idea? Thanks.
