I followed your instruction's by opening up the Run>>cmd then I copied the Code: "C:\syslinux\win32\syslinux.exe" -ma -d syslinux x: chsnged the "x" to "i" which is my usb flash drive. I hit enter and nothing happens..
If your USB stick has a led that goes on on write actions, you can see that data is written, when syslinux.exe is executed.
I think that the syslinux command doesn't give any output, when you execute it and if everything goes well. To be sure that it is executed, remove ldlinux.sys
. If you execute syslinux.exe now, the ldlinux.sys
will be created again.
Be sure that the path you specified for syslinux, is correct:
syslinux.exe -ma -d syslinux x:
cd: Change directory to "C:\syslinux\win32\
dir: list the contents of the current directory (look if syslinux.exe is listed)
The following archives contain the same files:
I download always the tar.bz file, because it is the smallest. It depends on the archiver that you use, to determine which file you can open. Any decent archiver is capable of opening those archives.
