I tried to include the well know JonDo-LiveCD from




into USB Stick.


I could boot the USB stick and use all the other tools on it but boot of JonDo fails with the following error:


"Unable to find a medium containing a live file system"


See this snapshot:




Why is there such an error?


Could authors fix this bug?


Thank you

Utilities like XBoot, YUMI, etc. need to know about how each linux distro  is made and what specific cheat codes are required and what the squashfs filesystem name is. If the specific distro is not listed by the utility, then it will try to make a best guess (or you need to pretend/force the utility to treat is as a similar distro and hope it works!)

Sadly XBoot is not supported any longer as the author has passed away.

For linux distros, you could try my Easy2Boot project. Just copy any number of linux LiveCD ISOs to the E2B USB drive and boot - simple!  

99% of linux LiveCDs just work and Easy2Boot does not need to be updated every time a new linux distro appears as it works in a different way.


P.S. Just downloaded the jondo-live-cd.iso and copied it to my E2B flash drive - it boots fine :-)
