Ticket #1819 (closed defect: wontfix)
Non-compressed SoaS USB fails to boot using helper CD
|Reported by:||David Kergyl||Owned by:||mchua sdz|
|Component:||Sugar on a Stick (SoaS)||Version:||0.86.x|
|Severity:||Major||Keywords:||Boot helper CD non-compressed non-live SoaS USB|
I created a non-compressed Blueberry 4GB USB SoaS that boots successfully in a Dell Latitude D630 laptop configured to boot from the USB. The same SoaS will not boot, however, using the boot helper CD on an old IBM ThinkPad laptop. The two write-thru drive caches are assumed, but the IBM never gets to the "SoaS 1" loading-bars screen.
The IBM laptop will successfully boot to Sugar, however, using the same helper CD and a LiveUSB SoaS.
Does the helper CD only work with a LiveUSB SoaS? If so, perhaps it would be worthwhile to create a helper CD for non-compressed USB SoaS's.
