hello there,

I am desperately trying to boot f17 from a usb stick created from the kde-live-cd.

when I try to boot from the stick, I get "error 15 - file not found" in the bootloader. I tried to create the live-usb with two different tools (unetbootin + liveusb creator) and I get the same error with both tools. btw I am creating the bootable stick from windows. I tried on two different machines and with two different sticks. the machine I am trying to get fedora installed is a lenovo s205 netbook with an amd e-450 and 4GB ram.

burning a cd is unfortunately not an option because the lenovo has no optical drive and I do not have an external optical drive. also, I do not have any linux machine at my hands.

any suggestions on how to get it to work?

I solved this problem by using the dd command and the DVD ISO Image, se my thread at for more info.

Having the same problem on my PC for the past few days. Can't figure out what is wrong but I've tried pretty much everything I've seen on these forums.

mmm Why no try Fuduntu (fork Fedora) "Fuduntu is a lighthearted and fun Linux distribution!" "Our goal is to provide an aesthetically pleasing user experience with up-to-date applications".

This includes many improvements to the grub, with UEFI support, With the stability of Fedora.

I would like to know as well. As eerie as it is, I'm in the exact same position as you (and I mean, EXACTLY...same computer, same approach, same goal).

I hope we can figure this out!

Here's the link to a thread I started a couple hours ago:

I should mention, the problem isn't with the KDE spin. I've tried this with F17 LiveCD and the "full" DVD version

I recommend you install the 64 bit version, you would to create a usb stick from windows with LinuxLive USB Creator
