Created an .iso of my corei7 system using mylivecd.
Created live-usb using lusbc
Boots up on a asus eee-pc 1000H. All I wanted to do was watch the bootup text. Here is the original menu.lst file:
color black/cyan yellow/cyan
kernel (hd0,0)/LXDE_0/vmlinuz livecd=LXDE_0 fromusb root=UUID=ea6542cb-e2c1-460c-a23e-55cfee827b36 acpi=on vga=791 splash=silent
title LXDE with Persistence
kernel (hd0,0)/LXDE_0/vmlinuz livecd=LXDE_0 fromusb root=UUID=ea6542cb-e2c1-460c-a23e-55cfee827b36 acpi=on fstab=rw,noauto vga=791 changes_dev=UUID=ea6542cb-e2c1-460c-a23e-55cfee827b36 splash=silent
It was working/booting fine previously. All I did was remove "splash=silent" from the first menu entry and save the file. Now the eeepc says it can't find the loop image and drops into a limited shell. Funny thing is I can interrupt grub and edit the line and it works fine booting verbose. I only wanted to make it do it by default.
Touchy. What have I done wrong? and how can I fix it?
