Subject: [gentoo-user] Installing on an eee-pc 1000H
Date: Thu, 17 Sep 2009 15:05:06
1 Hello list,
3 I'm trying to install Gentoo on a new eee-pc but falling at the first
4 hurdle. I've followed the instructions on making a boot USB stick in
5 but the machine doesn't recognise
6 the stick at boot time. It's a 4GB stick so I made a FAT-32 partition
7 occupying the whole space, using mkdosfs, then copied the contents of
8 install-x86-minimal-20090915.iso following the instructions. I did all the
9 things I was told to, but at the next boot the BIOS calls the stick merely
10 a "removable device", not a USB disk, and then it doesn't boot from it.
12 Can anyone tell me if that web page is up to date and complete? I notice it
13 doesn't say to make the _stick_ bootable, only the partition on it.
15 TIA.
