Hi all ... I know I'm rushing this a bit ... I need to repair my daughter-in-laws laptop this weekend. It won't boot to the desktop, just a CLI. This is after a borked attempt at an update... It gets to the CLI login but after logging in as root trying to run apt-get update hangs the system. Also trying apt-get dist-upgrade also hangs the system. I had them try (over the phone) to run XFDrake ... just goes to a black screen with cursor blinking in upper left corner ... have switch to tty2 and reboot .... so I heard about this new test spin 2011.6 and I figured I'd have that in case I need to do a re-install but for the life of me I cannot get the iso onto a USB stick ... I tried unetbootin, it goes through all the steps but when trying to boot with it I get an error about no operating system found ... I have tried it multiple times with the same error. I also tried to dd the iso to the disk ... but then it wasn't even seen as bootable ... anyone have any ideas??
