Mission Impossible: Linux Live USB for Aspire One?

Filed under
Linux

Past days have gone by in a search for Linux Live CD that would work from USB memory. The idea is first to test the Linux on USB memory and after which to move the Linux on SDHC memory. The search has proven to be more difficult than expected. The procedure sounds simple, just download a Linux live CD and use UNetbootin to prepare and copy the live CD to the USB memory.

I’ve tried Mandriva Linux One 2008 and Mandriva Linux One 2009 Beta2 distributions with differentiating results. The Mandriva 2008 booted, but the boot halted due to some folder checks. The Mandriva 2009 Beta2 booted as well, but halted at the beginning of the loading without any error report. According to AspireOneUser.com forum posts, the Mandriva 2009 Beta2 works.
