This question already has an answer here:
alright so guys i am trying to do a direct boot for Ubuntu 12.10 (as stated in the topic) i have been trying to do a direct boot for about ten minutes now.
so i have to do a direct boot because my original OS has a corrupted kernel (i am trying to fix a friends laptop)
Toshiba satellite C655D-S5518
anyway getting back to the main point when i put the usb in everything starts up fine it loads the usb then it goes to this screen saying "SYSLINUX 4.06 EDD 2012-10-23 Copyright (C) 1994-2012 H. Peter Anvin et al."
also getting a blinking line (as if i could put something in however when i try to type it does not show up so im guessing its telling me it is loading)
However i am not getting a corrupted file or any kind of file error so im guessing my main question is, is this normal? and if so how long does it take for this to be done and what are the steps proceeding this? sorry guys if this is a dumb question i am new to the Ubuntu party haha thanks
