Hey guys.
I've got problem with booting KolibriOS on my old laptop (it's Toshiba A200). I try booting Kolibri from 32MB SD memory card. I used UNetbootin but my laptop it doesn't option boot from memory card :( How i can launch Kolibri on my laptop?
Waiting for an answer from someone.
Regards

p.s. Sorry for my English :wink:

Hi. You can instal GRUB on your hard disk, and if memory stick is visible from GRUB, then you can boot Kolibri :)
Or you can install PLOP boot manager onto floppy, CD or anything else, and boot using PLOP.
Also, you can boot without any stick.

Btw, how do you install Kolibri using UNetbootin? o_O

It's simple. Download UNetbootin for W$ and run it. Next, I chose ISO file (svn-2324-img.7z) from my drive. Of course, before that I choose destination drive and click OK. That's all.
Well I do?

1) Using unetbootin that way isn't right. Kolibri isn't Linux. Read "USB-stick install" from 0.7.7.0 distributive: http://kolibrios.org/f/releases/kolibri ... _iso_en.7z
2) Img it's floppy image, not cd-rom.
3) You can copy any Kolibri's floppy image and mtldr (or something like this from official distibutive) to your C: drive, then fix few lines in your C:\boot.ini
This saves AND your Windows, AND installs Kolibri. You can delete Kolibri after this if you want. Read "HD install" or ask here for further information :)

Cool!
Do you know about SVN, btw? Also we have few ports that wasn't posted on SVN yet. Interested?

http://websvn.kolibrios.org/ - sources of programs
http://wiki.kolibrios.org/ - some info
We have ports of Doom, Quake, DosBox, TinyPy, Lua, Newlib, Mesa, Cairo, ZSNES, GnGB, ghostscript PDF and may be something I forgot :) You can find them in "Programs" forum, or, if you have troubles with Google Translate, I can find direct download links. Good luck :)
