Good morning
I have been following several topics,for info only. Often I see Puppy-linux used to get files from unbootable systems.
I seems like a good idea to have this on hand. So I downloaded (Using link and info from rshaffer61 signature)
puppy-2.16-seamonkey-fulldrivers.iso

I burned the image to a CD. I boot from the CD and after loading several files, all looks good until the following:

(red font)
Error, Cannot find Puppy on 'usbcd' boot media
pupmode=1 PDEV1=
exited to initial-ramdisk (initrmfs) command line
(the linux-guru can now debug,'e3'
editor is available

(white font)
/ibn/sh: can't access tty;job control turned off
# flashing cursor here)

Then nothing.
Am I doing something wrong
Thanks

Burning ISO file is different from burning other files. Download BurnCDCC from my links below and use it to burn the file. The program will only burn ISO files and is very simple to use.

I burned the ISO no problem with BurnCDCC.
The Machine boots to Puppy but will not complete.
Thanks

I would try another download of the file. It could be corrupted because I do not know of anyone having issues booting from the iso and making it run.

Well... I downloaded the file again on a different computer. Burned the ISO with CDBURNERXP (just in case).
Both CD's work perfectly in computer #2. Both do not work in computer#1. Same behavior as original post.

I recently had a backdoor Trojan and was cleaned in the malware forum.

I think I had better move this to the Windows XP Forum.
Thanks for the help.

Did you try the two CD drives? Make them no. 1 and no. 2 in boot priority in the BIOS and try to boot from each of them.
