I’ve tried Universal USB Installer, Wubi, Yumi, Etcher and Rufus… none have made a bootable USB stick. No errors with the stick, I’ve tried 2 different ones, one of which I use regularly for kali, mint and various trouble shooting (like gparted live). Etcher had the worst results, making the usb stick unusable, had to format and recover the full volume size and format again before it was usable again. Every program I used (besides etcher) seemed to be successful writing the image, however trying to boot to the usb simply goes into a bios boot back loop. Any suggestions? Rufus had the most verbose install so I’m guessing thats my best bet, it gives the most parameters for install, maybe some guidance on which to try next?
partition scheme and target system type: MBR partition scheme for bios or uefi (tried, didnt work)
or MBR partition scheme for UEFI (tried, didnt work)
or GPT partition scheme for UEFI
Using pureos 8.0 md64.hybrid
It also prompts the following before attempting to make:
“the image you selected is isohybrid image, it can be iso image of dd image mode. recommend iso mode.”
i’ve only tried iso. secure boot disabled in bios.
it also promted me to download ldlinux.bss and ldlinux.sys mentioning syslinus-6.03 requirements… which i did. this ones beyond me.
