Bootloader fails to find bfs volume on CD-ROM when booting via external USB 2.0 optical drive
|Reported by:||Stacked_Lambda||Owned by:||mmlr|
Bootloader stalls with error message indicating that no bootable bfs volume was found and enters KDL. I have not yet captured the SysLog (still have to learn how to) for details.
Experienced with Anyboot ISOs of R1 - Alpha-4.1 and HRev51877 - Hybrid-32bit.
The notebook is an Acer Aspire One 721-3922 (AMD. Athlon II Neo K125 at 1.0 GHz.
The optical drive is a Sony DRX-S50U (CD/DVD Rewritable - USB 2.0 - Manufactured February 2007).
In both cases, this combination of notebook/external optical drive was used to "burn" the ISO from Windows 7. A number of Linux distributions, Off-line Virus Scanners, as well as the Windows 7 Emergency/Repair Disc have been successfully booted with this combination.
These ISOs boot fine when used in a system with an internal CD.
This is an inconvenience as one cannot use an inexpensive medium (CD-R) for testing purposes.
