Talk:Booting from USB
Hello, boys i installed Ubuntu 8.10 on my flash drive, on the last step of setup i choice advanced settings and do install boot loader into /dev/sdb1 ( this is my flash drive ) He have only 1 partition with ext3 file system and boot flag. When installation is done i reboot the computer and boot from my flash drive, but i only see text: GRUB and black screen. I cant do anything, no commands or some errors just black screen.
I searched this in google, and i found cuz this is problem with my device.map file, but he look fine, i maked some test:
For the beginning the device.map file look that:
(hd0) /dev/sda (hd1) /dev/hdb
But with this grub menu not working for me, only black screen. Then i removed hd1 and place this record (hd0) /dev/sdb, same error, then i replaced /dev/sdb with /dev/sdb1, same error.
Now i dont know what to do. If somebody can help to me?
