Quick question - I'm trying to use a usb thumb drive to install #! (I can't find any CDs lying around). I used the dd method (unetbootin didn't work out well) and it works okay and all. But when I try booting from the flash drive, it fails miserably and I can't actually boot. It just sits there with a blinking cursor. The wiki page made no mention of a bootloader - is that required?
Thanks in advance!

no - you should be good to go.
i always make sure i sync - umount - eject manually following the dd.
in saying that i've had exactly this issue with a liquid lemur beta which i wasn't able to resolve . md5 was ok. :shrug:
all your Base are belong to us
try to boot with different parameters (nopcmcia acpi=off noapic)

I actually fixed this by removing the usb drive and reinserting the drive before booting Marking this thread solved!
