Debian USB issue
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 2, 2004
I have a linksys WUSB54Gv2 that I have been able to make work under Fedora Core 2 and I would like to use it on my KnoppMyth (Debian) box. I am running 2.4.25-chw. If I could get debian to see when I plug in the WUSB54Gv2, like just read it's bios chip, not load any drivers, I could do the rest. Is there some module I need to load to get Debian to examine the contents of the ROM chip onboard the external device?
I have already loaded hotplug.
Dmesg shows the following
hub.c: new USB device 00:02.0-3, assigned address 2
usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x13b1/0xa) is not claimed by any active driver.
I am not sure what to do.

[SOLVED] Debian USB Install: "No Boot Sector on USB Device" on laptop
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 22, 2015
I'm fairly competent with Slackware, but am a newbie with Debian.
I want to be able to work with Debian on my laptop. This machine is an old Dell Inspiron, with Win 7 installed on the main, internal drive.
My intention was to install Debian and the bootloader on a usb drive, so it wouldn't interfere with my rickety, old Windows install. I'm using a WD My Passport Ultra (1 TB).
I installed Debian "wheezy" on the usb drive and everything went well. I created a number of partitions and put GRUB2 (v. 1.99) on the first one (sdb1).
Every time I boot to the usb drive, I get an the error message, "No Boot Sector on USB Device." I've selected the usb drive manually and placed it 1st in the BIOS boot sequence. I get the same message, either way.
I used Super Grub2 Disk 2 and it shows the grub install on my usb drive. I can boot the Debian installation off of SG2D2 and it works fine.
Here is some select info from SG2D2:
Advice needed on my Debian USB and Firmware Install
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 23, 2014
OK, I would like to use a USB stick to:
perform an *.iso install
add wifi firmware during install.
Will the following steps accomplish this?
=== STEPS TO FOLLOW ==========
ADD ISO FILE
plug in USB stick
note USB location for "X"
# mount /dev/sdX /mnt
# cd /mnt
# tar zxvf /path/to/boot.img.gz
# cp /path/to/debian-7.5.0-i386-CD-1.iso
remove USB stick
ADD FIRMWARE (for my wifi card)
reinsert USB stick
second partition should be created
unpack firmware into it
# mount /dev/sdX2 /mnt
# cd /mnt
# tar zxvf /path/to/firmware.tar.gz
# cd /
remove USB stick
Using disc creator to make Debian live USB
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 12, 2010
If I use Ubuntu's (10.4) Startup Disc Creator app to create Debian (Lenny) start up USB I just get (when using it on a separate machine) a black screen with the text "boot:"
If I press Enter I get a pale blue screen but nothing else, some text if I press the TAB key, but it will do nothing.
Is this because I use Ubuntu for a Debian OS or is there some other problem?
I've noticed that the disc creator in Ubuntu only really likes Ubuntu related OSs. But since it recognised it when I created it I would have thought it'd work!

External USB hard drive undetected by Debian Squeeze
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 22, 2011
My external usb hard drive is not detected in Debian Squeeze. Attempting to mount it with KwikDisk results in "special device /dev/sdf1 does not exist." It had worked fine (automounting at boot or login) for some months previous.
Poking around in /dev/, I find no /dev/sdf (it stops at /dev/sde). Running "fdisk -l /dev/sdb" on each of these, excepting /dev/sda (internal hard drive), reveal no partitions.
I'm not sure; I didn't keep close tabs on my /dev directory. I use KDE, and plasma crashed on me while playing a flash video. I gave the commands kwin --replace, plasma-desktop, kwin --replace. KDE got choppy after a bit, so I restarted. This stuff with KDE all runs in user-space, so it shouldn't have messed with root-level stuff, right?
Anyway, I suppose that something deleted /dev/sdf, somehow. I suppose it's also possible that the external hard drive fritzed out; I'm going to try booting into Knoppix after it's dow
[SOLVED] New Debian install will only boot from USB stick?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 17, 2012
I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem. I recently installed Debian Squeeze (Stable) onto my ATA hard drive...completely wiping out my Windows OS ( I did that on purpose ) I chose the total disk install, but when I check disk utility it's showing that I have 3 extensions? Other than that, the install seemed to go flawlessly, but now the only way that I can get debian to boot is if I have the USB stick plugged in. I've checked the boot settings in BIOS, and when I set it to boot from the ATA hard drive, all I get is a black screen with a flashing cursor. I then plug in the USB stick and reset the BIOS to boot from that and it goes just fine. After Debian boots, I can remove the USB stick and everything still works fine. But will not boot up again without the stick plugged in.
I've searched through the forums and I'm thinking it's either a partitioning problem, or something isn't configured right with the ATA hard drive. In case anyone is wondering I have
