Hi all,

On a F18, I installed livecd-tools-18.15-1

I downloaded CenOS6.x minimal .iso and with livecd-iso-to-disk the resulting USB is never bootable: the computer doesnt boot on it. Tested on many computers.

The fact is I succeded to install CentOS on a Netbook (no CD/DVD tray), but I dont remember how I invoked livecd-iso-to-disk.

I tried with many combinations (/dev/sdc is the USB pendrive):

1°)
$ sudo livecd-iso-to-disk –format –force /dev/sdc

2°)
$ sudo livecd-iso-to-disk –format –force /dev/sdc1

3°)
– Format with VFAT on partiion #1 then
$ sudo livecd-iso-to-disk /dev/sdc1

4°)
– Format with Ext on partiion #1 then
$ sudo livecd-iso-to-disk /dev/sdc1

N°)
I dont remember what I tried, but it was many, mostly tried with CentOS 6.2

Please, if someone has a F18 + an USB drive: would you test and see if you succed?
If you ever succed, how did you?


RMA.
