Post subject:  New syslinux options

ady alerted me to this in the syslinux wiki:

Quote:
Note: before version 4.0 of syslinux, it were required to use external tool (such as the 'HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool', available here) to format your drive. Since version 4.0, syslinux is able to do that internally.


Can anyone point out more info on how syslinux can be used to format the target drive? I tried looking through the wiki and mailing list but couldn't find anything related.

Thanks!

It is not possible.

@Icecube, what Victor quoted comes from the syslinux wiki at http://syslinux.zytor.com/wiki/index.php/HowTos#How_to_Create_a_Bootable_USB:_Windows_XP_and_Vista. The only problem is that it doesn't explain how to do it, or the new arguments that makes it happen.

It is not explained because the Syslinux installer doesn't do that. Someone added that to the wiki, but it isn't true.

A little bit stupid to edit any wiki for that matter with false information, thoough could have been an accident.
