Boot Problem

Hey !

I've recently decided to create a backtrack bootable USB key using this little software : unetbootin.

But the thing is : each time I try to boot with the the flash drive plug in, the computer just keeps freezing at the very beginning (where they inform you which button to press to get into the BIOS).

I seems that my motherboard (aspire 8930g) can handle those kind of boot, so that's not the probleme. I've also tried to create the key with an other ISO but nothing changed. I tried an other distriution ---> same.

I'm kind of desperate right know, i've tried a lot a different forums but nobody could help me.

Hoping someone got the answer

According to this forum post, it will only boot as USB1.1 and can take a while (up to 3 minutes, evidently). Have you ever just left the computer running for a while to see if it eventually does boot? You might also want to take a look at PLoP.

Well I couldn't figure out how to use PLoP (each time I mounted the image, it just openned me a new folder i couldn't use). But I tried other methods, especially using Syslinux, but I had the same problem again and again

Burn PLoP to a disc, boot from the disk with your flash drive plugged in, then choose the correct option to boot from USB.

You might also want to try updating your BIOS if possible.
