USB bootable CrunchBang

I have a simple question, and i spend so much time in the internet to don't resolve the problem. I have a Macbook White 5.2 mid 2009 and i want to install CrunchBang on it, the problem is that the USB booter that i made using UNEBootin doesn't appears in the boot screen on rEFIt. This is so strange because if a made a bootable USB of a distro like Xubuntu it appears, just with CrunchBang it doesn't work (doesnt worker too with fedora and others that i dont remember).

Sorry about my english!

Re: USB bootable CrunchBang

The recommended method for installing #!Crunchbang to a USB-drive does not use Unetbootin.

Re: USB bootable CrunchBang

I make the biggest stupid thing in my whole life. I think that confuse the sda (my whole HD) with sda1 (the USB HD) and now all my main HD are a boot for crunchbang. So, when i try to lunch my os (choosing the HD as primery booter on BIOS) they start a live for CrunchBang.
What can i do? I have things that i need to recovery from the HD and, in the live option, it says that my HD are unallocated.

Re: USB bootable CrunchBang

You will need a live distro to look at your hard drive.
Do you have one? (It can be xubuntu if necessary.)
Boot into a live system, in a terminal, as the root user, type fdisk -l /dev/sda (& press enter).
Post the output on here, (one of our mac users will then be able to guide you).

Re: USB bootable CrunchBang

I was making the USB boot in a PC computer, so a screw up my girlfriend's computer. I will write what it says after type the code:

Disk /dev/sda: 320.1 GB, 320072933376 bytes
64 heads, 32 sectors/track, 305245 cylinders, total 625142448 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x6b8b4567

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           0     1538047      769024   17  Hidden HPFS/NTFS

Is there a way to view my old home (before it turned in to a boot disk, when it was installed a xubuntu)?

Thanks for helpin me & sorry my english.

Re: USB bootable CrunchBang

According to that you have one partition on that disk, so it certainly looks like everything is gone for good, to me.

Re: USB bootable CrunchBang

Okay. Thank you, fatmac.

Since OS X uses parts of BSD, I would think you should be able to use the dd command to make a bootable USB thumb drive.  Check this HowTo by VastOne:  http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=23267
