I keep getting an error about being unable to mount sda1 because of unsupported optional features (240)

Anyone have suggestions on what to try? Here's my config.

menu.lst

That should be fine. Did you verify the md5sum of the iso before extracting it the to USB key?

BT4 is in a folder called bt4final

Here's my menu.lst entry for BT4 final:

### Back|Track 4 Final ###
title BackTrack 4 Final
configfile /bt4final/grub/bt4final.lst

and bt4final.

# By default, boot the first entry.
default 0

# Boot automatically after 30 secs.
timeout 30

#splashimage=/bt4final/grub/bt4.xpm.gz
foreground e3e3e3
background 303030

I believe i figured it out. I PMed H@L0_F00 and he helped me. Well it worked on mine, you can test it on yours and see if it does as well.

1- Download BT4 final and ubuntu9-10 iso

2- Extract bt4 using 7zip or whatever else you use.

3- copy the casper and boot folders.

This is the code... pay close attention to it. Except for bt4 casper, menu.lst and grldr, I copied into another folder named "boot". You don't need to do it so in case you did not, change the path of your files.

My BT4 code:

title -=- BackTrack 4: Penetration testing toolkit -=-
configfile /boot/bootBT4/grub/BT4menu.lst
savedefault

My BT4 menu list:

splashimage /boot/bootBT4/grub/bt4.xpm.gz
color red/black red/black
default 4
timeout 30
foreground red

background black

title -=Start BackTrack FrameBuffer (1024x768)=-
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/bootBT4/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper nopersistent rw quiet vga=0x317
initrd=/boot/bootBT4/initrd.gz


title -=Start BackTrack FrameBuffer (800x600)=-
kernel /boot/bootBT4/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper nopersistent rw quiet vga=0x314
initrd=/boot/bootBT4/initrd800.gz


title -=Start BackTrack Forensics (no swap)=-
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/bootBT4/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper nopersistent rw vga=0x317
initrd=/boot/bootBT4/initrd.gz


title -=Start BackTrack in Safe Graphical Mode=-
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/bootBT4/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper xforcevesa rw quiet
initrd=/boot/bootBT4/initrd.gz


title -=Start Persistent Live CD=-
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/bootBT4/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper persistent rw quiet
initrd=/boot/bootBT4/initrd.gz


title -=Start BackTrack in Text Mode=-
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/bootBT4/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper nopersistent textonly rw quiet
initrd=/boot/bootBT4/initrd.gz


title -=Start BackTrack Graphical Mode from RAM=-
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/bootBT4/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper toram nopersistent rw quiet
initrd=/boot/bootBT4/initrd.gz


title
kernel
initrd

title -=Memory Test=-
kernel /boot/bootBT4/memtest86+.bin


title -=Boot the First Hard Disk=-
root (hd0)
chainloader +1

title -=Main-menu=-
configfile /menu.lst
------------------------------------------------------------

Now my Ubuntu code:

title -=- Ubuntu 9-10 LiveCD - Linux OS -=- 
find --set-root /boot/Ubuntu-910.iso
map /boot/Ubuntu-910.iso (0xff)
map --hook
root (0xff)
kernel /casper/vmlinuz file=/cdroom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper iso-scan/filename=/boot/Ubuntu-910.iso quiet splash locale=en.UTF-8 --
initrd /casper/initrd.lz

N.B.: YOU DO NOT NEED TO EXTRACT UBUNTU, WHICH MEANS THAT YOU DO NOT NEED ITS CASPER FOLDER. THE ONLY CASPER FOLDER YOU WILL NEED IT THE BT4 ONE.

You can put "persistent" for Ubuntu if you wish.

Thanks a lot H@L0_F00

Now i can finally move to usb hacksaw. I'd really appreciate it if anyone can send me in the right direction, as what to download, what to install, and tutorials on how to use it. Thanks

can i make a questiion what's the use of the ubuntu ?

Asking what's the use of ubuntu is almost the same as asking what's the use of PC. PC is windows and Ubuntu is Linux, does the same thing as PC except.. way better from security to programming.

PC = Personal Computer

Windows = Microsoft

Ubuntu = GNU/Linux

Calling a computer a "PC" has nothing to do with it's OS. It simply means it's a computer for personal use, hence the term Personal Computer.

There are infinite uses for Ubuntu. It's rare that one reason is used in explaining the use of it over another OS.
