Hi all,

I'm experiencing some issues to boot my OsgeoLive 5.0 USB flashdisk. Following all step provided by the link and all the steps have been achieved successfully. But when I Boot the computer with the USB flash drive nothing happen a get black screen with a flashing cursor.

I'm getting the same problem with 5.5. I've got the mini-5.5-beta4 iso downloaded and checked the md5 sum. I've followed those same instructions (running the Startup Disk Creator from within OSGeoLive 4.5 running from CD), and it seemed to go fine, apart from getting really slow round about 94%. But it said it had finished successfully.

Two different computers refuse to boot from this stick, one offers a blank screen with "boot:" which refuses to do anything (typing "boot" says there's no image called boot, typing enter just hangs it); the other computer just doesn't see it as bootable at all.

Both these computers boot fine from another USB stick (a Debian live image copied to the stick with dd), so it's not the case that they just can't boot from a USB stick. Of course it could just be a hardware problem with the second stick perhaps, but it mounts fine and appears to be intact (I can read the docs, for example). I just can't boot from it to test it out.

#911 wontfix bootloader install failed on install to hard drive live-demo@… mattjs

"Booloader install failed" cannot be resolved or overridden by either:

  • "Choosing a different device to install the bootloader on:" if it fails one cannot --force the grub-install which works from terminal under regular Ubuntu Desktop OS) or ignore and "Cancel the installation." which doesn't work and simply retuns to the dialog box to prompt again.

Fortunately this appears to occur, as it should, after installing everything to disk so killing the processes/OS at this point leads to recovery (for me). [In my case, although this doesnt effect any of the above, I dual-boot to phys disk install using NeoSmart EasyBCD autogrub (aka wingrub of old) and virtual boot in VMware using the phys disk install and a supergurb disk. I intall in VMware using phys disk aloowing access to the swap and root partitions only and in line with the above always install grub? to the partition itself e.g. /dev/sda4 swap and /dev/sda5 or sda6 say (Ubuntu or OSGeoLive). Writes to partition table/mbr always fail and never trash my Windows install. Writes to sda5 and sda6 with grub-install --force work and AutoNeoGrub(wingrub) for phys boot and super_grub_disk for virtual boot then do the rest! :-)]
