Cannot start memory stick installation under Kubuntu 18.04

#1 Post by pwabrahams » Tue May 19, 2020 7:09 pm

I'm using Kubuntu 18.04 and I'm trying to create a UBCD bootable memory stick. I think I have all the necessary files in the right places. Here's what I get:

Code: Select all

pwa@HP-Pavilion-Laptop-17-ar0xx:~/ubcd$ sudo ./ubcd/tools/linux/ubcd2usb/syslinux --install -s -d /boot/syslinux /dev/sdb1
[sudo] password for pwa: 
/dev/sdb1: No such file or directory
Yet /dev/sdb1 does exist:

Code: Select all

pwa@HP-Pavilion-Laptop-17-ar0xx:~/ubcd$ ll /dev/sdb1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 17 May 19 22:44 /dev/sdb1
I can even mount to it:

Code: Select all

pwa@HP-Pavilion-Laptop-17-ar0xx:~/ubcd$ mount | grep sdb
pwa@HP-Pavilion-Laptop-17-ar0xx:~/ubcd$ ll /dev/sdb1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 17 May 19 22:45 /dev/sdb1
pwa@HP-Pavilion-Laptop-17-ar0xx:~/ubcd$ mount | grep sdb
pwa@HP-Pavilion-Laptop-17-ar0xx:~/ubcd$ sudo mount /dev/sdb1  /mnt/usb
pwa@HP-Pavilion-Laptop-17-ar0xx:~/ubcd$ ll /mnt/usb
total 8
So what do I need to do to get this to work?

What happens if you try sdb?

If I use /dev/sdb rather than /dev/sb1.I get: /dev/sdb: invalid media signature (not an FAT/NTFS volume?)
