I have a large multi-boot USB flash drive which I use for everything imaginable (rescue+recovery, portable OS, media drive, check out new distros etc). It's based on Grub4DOS installed to a FAT32 drive. I've managed to get all the common distros/bootables to work fine (Puppy, Parted Magic, SysRescueCD, UBCD, etc) *except* openSUSE 11.2
I copied all the files from the ISO to the flash drive and added an entry to my menu.lst:
but it fails to boot. (I get some 'BAR 6' memory error)
kernel /boot/x86_64/loader/linux ramdisk_size=512000 ramdisk_blocksize=4096 splash=silent quiet preloadlog=/dev/null showopts
I suspect this might be due to the new "hybrid" ISO technology. Unfortunately, the "dd" solution isn't a feasible option for me.
Is there any way to boot the new openSUSE in my current setup? Thanks.
