- i make partition on usb fd using win xp and hitachi micro driver filter
primary 1, fat32/ntfs -data
primary 2, fat32 - some iso file, anti virus live cd
primary 3, ext3 - ubuntu 9.04
primary 4, swap (i am not linux guy, i dont know really know if linux on usb need swap partition)
- install grub4dos to usb flash, put grldr and menu.lst on pri 1 or pri 2.
- install ubuntu 9.04 (alternate install) to usb fd partition primary 3, and install grub to partition boot sector.
- boot ubuntu using grub4dos, (chainload to ubuntu partition boot sector or load kernel directly)
and here is what i got:
- Ubuntu on usb fd run on 7 different pc but not on ASUS P5Q
- Grub4dos will not boot on some HP pc if primary 1 formatted with ntfs, formatted with fat32 is fine.
