Unable to boot the 3.8.7 ISO 64bit from a USB

regards
I have made a donation to Elive. I have downloaded the 64-bit ISO, I have installed it on a USB via etcher and when trying to boot with it a lot, it does not work, the screen goes blank.
Help?

Before we can help we will need to know more about the machine you're installing on.
HINT: Try another machine if you can and see if that has the same issue. If that works it's down to the machine ...... otherwise the USB (or .iso -- you did a checksum, right?) might be flawed or corrupted.

We'll need the specific product specs i.e: Make, video card, HD setup, you know the general specs.

Hola @llvps y bienvenido al foro!

Podrías verificar el MD5 de la iso descargada? solo para asegurar de que la descarga está completa, a veces algunos mirrors fallan y la descarga se corta, para verificarlo puedes hacerlo con este pequeño howto: How to verify the MD5 values

en la pagina de la descarga te sale el valor MD5 con el que deberĂ­a de coincidir, el cual para la ultima version 3.8.7 de 64 bit es: MD5 - eb4875c7080da389fe43d859d84771ae

Esos son exactamente los va,ores que me salen. La iso la convierto en usb boootable con el programa etcher

llvps esos valores están bien, pero mira mi primera respuesta en la conversacion (no por email, en el foro directamente)

por favor, puedes contestarme a través del correo? No encuentro la respuesta que dices que has escrito en el foro.

Al iniciar el ordenador con usb bootable recibo este mensaje intermitente:
error:: no such devide: /live/vmlinuz

The solution for me was:

  1. Use another USB Stick
  2. Use another computer

No Kidding, the first Stick at the first computer was working fine (created with etcher). In the second computer it won't boot ([...]no such device /live/vmlinuz[...]). Another USB stick (exact the same vendor/size, maybe a half year older) works fine on both computers and a third one.

ha!
this issue happened only in recent versions booting with UEFI, it is fixed in 3.8.9 :slight_smile:

@llvps descarga la version 3.8.9, ese problema ha sido solucionado :slight_smile:
