[SOLVED] Linux boot from USB flash drive

I need to boot Linux form USB pen drive
wrt : http://www.freescale.com/files/32bit...ote/AN3217.pdf
for booting linux from u-boot from USB flash I need
1. USB Host controller support in u-boot support to detect ped drive
2. initial small & simple RAM disk.
3. USB stick with actual Images kernel & rootfs.
4. First kernel will use initial RAM disk & then actual rootfs from USB.
My question is
1. How will initial RAM disk (initial rootfs) come into picture :
As at the beginning pen drive will not be detected (without any fs).
And there will not be any on board NAND flash.
Is it the case that u-boot understands VFAT formatted pen drive

Installing Linux in a USB... and more software to BOOT from USB
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 11, 2013
Hi guys I feel like I'd like to put in my USB of 16Gb, several thing to be bottable... "I've seen so many spftware that I get already crazy."
1. Well I'd like to put lubuntu to be bootable from a usb "To boot the system without having to install it, but be able to touch everything" and besides make it able to install it in the hard drive if I want it.
2. More difficult, I'd like to put my original copy of windows 7 to make it bootable just to install it...
3. I'd like to install third software which is an ISO with several programs to use... "you know what I mean xDD"
Is there any program that let you do all that?

Can't boot Linux Mint from USB
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 21, 2014
I have gone from Mint to Ubuntu back to Mint all in the same afternoon and I am getting quite frustrated. I no longer have Windows on my computer. I have discs to go back but I imagine there will be mbr problems for me to surmount.
I currently am typing from my computer booted up with a USB stick with Mint 17. I have it installed on my computer but cannot seem to be able to boot into it no matter what I try. I don't really know what or how to try (not meaning stupid, just ignorant) to get to boot up into Linux.
I turned of SECURE BOOT and tried to turn off UEFI, but can't seem to be able to do it.
I have tried Linux in the past and I cannot see anything like a boot up menu. I can't get rid of the WINDOWS BOOT MANAGER.
Please help me just to be able to boot and then I will attempt to read up on using Linux.
I also have this problem. http://forums.cnet.com/7723-7591_102...7-salvageable/
Boot Linux (arago) from usb instead of sd card on Am1808
location: linuxexchange.com - date: November 5, 2012
I have Am-1808 board (evm zoom kit), Right now I have ubl and uboot in the spi flash, and file system and kernel(uImage) in the SD card, I followed the steps for running linux on am-1808 board from here:
I don't find any official reference/document which can explain booting linux from usb, is it possible that i can place file system + kernel in the usb and then tell the uboot to look for usb to find uImage from usb instead of sd-card. If yes, then can u please explain how?
The portion of u-boot code which looks for uImage from sd card is:
#define CONFIG_BOOTARGS "mem=32M console=ttyS2,115200n8 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rw rootwait ip=off"
#define CONFIG_BOOTCOMMAND "if mmc rescan 0; then if fatload mmc 0 0xc0600000 boot.scr; then source 0xc0600000; else fatload mmc 0 0xc0700000 uImage; bootm c0700000; fi; else sf probe 0; sf read 0xc0700000 0x80000 0x220000; bootm 0xc0700000; fi"
I need to use usb instead of sd-card for placing filesystem + uImage because i had to use sd card p
How to use Plop Boot Manager to boot from USB in Linux?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I failed to upgrade from Ubuntu12.04 to 12.10, so I decide to make a fresh installation of 12.10. My old computer doesn't support booting from usb, and its cd-rom is broken.
I know Plop Boot Manager can make my computer boot from usb. I know how to use it in Windows, and I did use it when I tranfered from Win-XP to Ubuntu 12.04. But now, I don't know how to use it under Linux.
As far as I know, despite of the lengthy documentation, using Plop to boot from usb under Windows is as simple as double clicking a bat file. But doc for linux is not that straitfoward and contains daunting terminologies such as LILO for a Linux newbie. What makes it worse is that I'm not a native English speaker.
So could someone show me a brief and concise instruction how to boot from usb?

"boot error" message on boot from usb created with "USB startup disk Creator "
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 30, 2012
I have tried creating a bootable usb with ubuntu on using the defualt usb creator software included and when I attempt to boot off the usb I get a "boot error" message.
I get the same problem when using unetbootin and Live USB Creator.
I also get the same problem using some other computers, I've tried the usb on a dell inspiron 530s, vostro 410 and a vostro 210 with same result!
However it/they work on a dell dimension 4700!!
Is this a common problem?
I've read about some computers not bening able to boot usb hard drives and only zip format usbs or something( sorry for vagueness!)and the bios on all the computers that it does not work on say something like zip-usb as the boot option where as the old dell dimension 4700 just says usb!
Is their a way i can make a usb that will just work on any computer that has the option to boot from usb?
I have tried plop boot manager which does enable booting of the usb, but needs me to take a CD with me! so not ideal
