View Full Version : Universal Boot
14th August 2009, 05:15 PM
Is there away to create an universal boot USB drive? What I want to do is create an usb driver that will boot most, if not all computers to Linux. All I want is a basic video, and wireless network support. Is this possible and if so where can I find instructions to do it?

I'm not sure if I understand your question right. Do you want the functionality of a live CD - usually boots most of the hardware in which it is inserted - but instead of a CD you want it on a USB pen drive? If thats the case, then you can convert a live CD onto a USB pen drive. Instructions on how to do this are here in the forum.

I have created an Fedora Live USB drive, the problem I am having is that I have tried it on 3 machines, all three recognized the drive as a bootable drive, but only one would actually boot. The one that would boot, a Dell laptop, the OS would not recognize the wireless card, and I have instructions to fix that. The other computer a Macbook Pro would boot to a point, but would hang. From what I can see, the problem is the video driver. The final machine a Dell desktop, tried to boot but did not like the image on the USB. I want an USB drive that I can put into any machine and have it boot correctly. Is that possible and if so how to do it?
