Creating Live USB stick on Arch Linux won't work

Sun, 2017-11-19 18:32

I have some problems with my Windows PC. I want to diagnose it and decided to create a Live USB Stick with some Linux like SystemRescueCD or Ultimate Boot CD. I have a Laptop with Arch Linux installed, so I need to do it there.

But whatever image I paste to the USB stick, it won't work. As soon as I boot from the USB-stick I get:

"this is not a bootable disk. please insert a bootable floppy and press any key to try again"

I have done it like this way:

Budget hackable mobile device for Linux?

Sun, 2017-11-19 18:28

So I’m currently a Mac/iPhone/iPad user (boooo, non-GPL, I know) with an Arch desktop at home that I don’t use that often because it’s a desktop and I’m always out somewhere. I don’t want to mess with my Macbook, as it’s my primary “work” machine, i.e. not for experimentation. However, I am raring to screw around and learn the innards of Linux on a cheap, mobile device, roughly phablet to small tablet sized, that I can ideally connect to external devices (keyboard, display, USB disks) and install x86 Unix/Linuxes on.

Any suggestions?

New Dell XPS 13 (8th gen intel CPU), anything I should install or configure on a new ubuntu install?

Sun, 2017-11-19 17:08

Is there anything I should install or configure that relates to the hardware of the laptop? Drivers related to power management or the integrated Intel HD 620 GPU, things like that?
