I have created an installation medium 4GB usb by the CLI
#ls -l /dev/disk/by-id/*usb* #mkdosfs -I /dev/sdb #dd if=openSUSE-12.1-GNOME-LiveCD-i686.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=1M
I checked this medium on my 32-bit Dell-Vostro-1014 laptop and everything went fine.
But when I tried to check the medium on my 32-bit Zenith(India)-ZBook-OEM netbook the machie hung and refused to proceed further beyond the starting screen ‘Zenith-Always ON’ message.
I may mention that I have installed openSUSE-11.4 on this machine from a 2GB installation-usb created in an identical manner. As a matter of fact I am posting this thread from that platform. Also an installation-usb for
debian-squeeze has also worked.
Now I am waiting for advice and direction.
