Partition the stick. Create at least one 1G-or-so partition of the type 0x0c "W95 FAT 32 (LBA)". Mark that partition active. If you have room for only one partition, use partitioning anyway.

If you're using VL, be sure you have the latest version of Unetbootin from the repos.

mkdosfs -v /dev/sdb1
Naturally, you'll plug in the actual partition for "sdb1" if that's not it.

Mount the partition, and then try Unetbootin. If you need to retry after that, ERASE or reformat the partition beforehand to save a lot of Unetbootin run-time.

No idea whether this repeats what was in the video. Can't view it right now due to bandwidth.

BTW, RC2.2.6 is out and initially looks good.

Hi All,
Thanks for your responses, was a little concern that the forum might have been off.

I tried the following:

in addition I tried unetbootin but it stops as the last step

Nothing works using VL64-7.1-STD-RC2.2.4.iso.

"We fear the unknown."  "Rather the devil you know, than the one you don't." I'm sure there are more old sayings that could be applied.

I think it is good that there is spirited discussion about big changes like these. It helps things get sorted out. And I believe that things will get sorted out. Looking back at some the things I used to worry about:
- Windows registry as a single point of failure causing widespread chaos: Nope, it seems to be resilient enough.
- W2K raw sockets overwhelming the Internet: Never heard about it being exploited.
- Pulseaudio hogging resources and dragging down my system: Nah, it works well and gives me access to more features of my sound system.
- KDE4: It took years, but now it is good. And there were plenty of alternatives all along.

Interesting.  It would seem that from several of the comments that the "unknowness" (is that a real word?) of systemd (lack of documentation and logging) creates much of the concern.  Linux people like to (at least think they) know what's going on with their OS.  There are others (perhaps like me) who, at least to a certain point, are accepting of what the distro developers roll out.  But who am I to "pick a side" since I live in a blended house: a ClearOS server, a Windows Home Server, several Windows 8.x desktops, a Vector desktop, a WinXP desktop, a few Android tablets, an Android phone, an iPhone, and several iPods.

You're going to burn for that one.   Grin
