I got Dell Inspiron 5150 and I cannot make wireless work under Windows XP so I thought I try linux - I got ubuntu-13.10-desktop-i386.iso image handy so I put in on my usb stick using Universal-USB-Installer-184.108.40.206.exe
Then I tried booing and got the subject message.
I tried everything that the other post Boot failure : No DEFAULT or UI configuration directive found! suggested
isolinux --> syslinux (this is a folder)
isolinux.bin --> syslinux.bin
isolinux.cfg --> syslinux.cfg
formatting the stick as FAT/FAT16
Try entering mboot.c32 -c boot.cfg at the "boot:" prompt.
- trying different usb sticks.
- I tried to boot slax but it finished
Fatal error occurred - cant find executable chroot command- I am going to try the latest version of slax now. UPDATE so the latest slax slax-English-US-7.0.8-i486.iso is giving me boot: /boot/vesamenu.c32: not a COM32R image. Hm the older slax went further in the boot process.... but it is overwritten now.
- Puppy Slack linuxn - slacko-5.7.0-PAE.iso - gave me the same error
boot: /boot/vesamenu.c32: not a COM32R image
Any help how to make Ubuntu work on this old Dell is welcome.
