What's in your menu.lst?

And read this, http://hak5.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=13842

hi thanks for your reply in my menu.lst i copied the backtrack 4 coded from the description on the episode details i extracted the bt4 beta files from the iso to my pen drive and renamed the boot folder to bootbt4 so it matched what was in menu.lst so i have no idea why it wont work

i have just noticed by watching the episode that the menu.lst file in the episode has a file type of masm listing and mine is just a text document could this be what is wrong? i save it as .lst but it doesn't change from a text doc

try viewing all extentions for all files

i create a menu.list file on my dads vista machine and it failed so i brought it over to linux and noticed is said menu.lst.txt

so be sure your setup isnt the same because that will not work ^^

I know what the problem is as stated earlier you have the menu.lst as a text doc so your gonna have to uncheck the option "Hide extensions for known file types"

this will show that you have menu.lst.txt

Just delete the .txt and save

Should work now!

nope wrong sorry
