I am trying to create a bootable USB thumb drive. I downloaded the
liveKDE64bit iso and followed the procedure outlined in the SDB. I did:
Created 2 primary partitions on the drive, sdb1 - 10 Gb and sdb2 - 4 Gb,
as root ran
dd if=/mnt/iso/openSUSE-13.1-KDE-Live-x86_64.iso of=/dev/sdb1 bs=4M
The drive boots into a grub prompt only, but no menu appears.
I reformatted sdb1 and tried again using virtually the sme command
except using bs=1M and the process was finished ran "sync". This was
suggested on another web page for suse 13.1. The result is the same,
just a grub boot prompt.
I could, at the prompt, set the root device, the kernel and the initrd
and boot, but it is cumbersome to do it every time.
Any pointers on how to get the normal boot menu (that is on the dvd)
would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance, Gustav
