I followed the instructions in the Slax documentation to download the 64 bit Slax 7.0.8 ZIP, unzipped it onto an SD card, and ran bootinst.bat to make the card bootable. This was done from a Slax liveCD session. The progress messages indicated that everything was successfully completed.
When I boot from the SD card, I get a message early in the process:
failed to load com32 file /slax/boot/vesamenu.c32, and the boot hangs (the file does exist). I found some online links to other people with the same problem. For example, this one. However, I can't make any sense of the discussion.
Is anyone familiar with this problem and can describe how to fix it?
