Installing Sabayon from USB Pendrive?

Post by Valen » Fri Aug 14, 2009 19:22

Hiya folks.

I just me a new Asus Eee 1000h, and it comes with Windows XP preinstalled, and no DVD drive (not any drive at all).
So, what I was thinking was to install Sabayon Linux 3.5 Pod from my 1GB USB Pendrive, is that possible?

I have my main PC with Windows Vista installed, so I only have that to work with, and the pendrive.

I know about the tool called UNetbootin, and I tried that with the CoreCD of 4.2, but I got a "cannot find any bootable medium" shortly after I choosed the text install from the CD. I couldn't find anything about it, so now I try with the Pod release instead.

Should it work like that, or am I doing something wrong?

EDIT: Just tried formatting the pendrive as FAT32, and putting Sabayon 3.5 Pod on it with UNetbootin, but I get a message saying:
"Please remove all removable drives
Press any key to reboot"

we can't support sabayon 3.5 pod, it's too old and it was never completed properly.

Are you using our wiki to do the pen drive install?
