    penubuntu log in

    # parted -s /dev/sdb unit s print

    Warning: Not all of the space available to /dev/sdb appears to be used, you can fix the GPT to use all of the space (an extra 6656 blocks) or continue with the current setting?

    # fsck.hfsplus /dev/sdb1

    ** /dev/sdb1

    # mount /dev/sdb1 tmp

    mount: mounting /dev/sdb1 on tmp failed: Invalid argument

    SanDisk U3 Cruzer Micro == bad, this a flash drive using U3 technology which can hid partitions and do other Windows centric things. They are difficult to partition correctly.

    Try a different type of USB flash drive.

    ok. The only other one i have is an imation 1gb. I'm going to give it a try now.

    and when it does write the img to the usb drive, is it ok if it says 500 + 0 or does it have to say +1?

    when i put it in, it stops at the OSBoot file not found, and i have been reading on a different forum to restart it, and it will ask to do a restore, but when i restart it, it only flashes the apple tv question mark

    If dd complete with out errors, dd thinks it wrote the image. The problem is not dd but with the UBS flash drive itself. Most of the problems that users are having with recovery-fix.img is from USB flash drives that do not take the image properly. There's not much one can do but try a different USB flash drive. Some work fine, others sort of work, and others fail to boot. They all seem to work fine as non-booting disks under Windows

    When it stops at the OSBoot file not found, telnet in and do a "ls -l /dev/sd*" and post the response.

    You should see /dev/sda, /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, /dev/sda3, /dev/sda4, /dev/sdb and /dev/sdb1. The last two are the important devices. If you see only /dev/sdb, then the USB flash drive has funny geometry.

    You could try

    mkdir tmp
    hfs.fsck /dev/sdb
    mount /dev/sdb tmp

    ls -l tmp

    post the response from the last command.

    Need to be wired network and have a dhcp server running. If you watch the boot sequence, it will do an ifconfig which will show the IP address if given one from a dhcp server over the wired network interface. Wireless is not supported.


    Otherwise, connect a USB keyboard and login.

    Sorry, not much I can do with such little info. "no such file or directory" could mean boot.efi does not exisit or penboot does not exist. Since you did not indicate your steps, I have no clue as to what could be wrong. You really need to more explicit, the exact steps taken would be nice. If you cannot copy paste, then you will just have to type it out manually. This type of debugging help is a two way street. I can't see what you have done so you have to tell me and the more exact the description, the better.

    Take the time to document what you are doing and I can see what is going wrong and can help.

    In your previous try, you could not telnet. I gave info as to what you need to do to resolve this problem. As I tell others, work the problem, there is no magic solution, no two line of copy you can copy/paste and jumping around will only cause confusion.

    I'm trying to get to a get to a point where I can tell if your USB flash drive will work. I cannot do that without a telnet into penbuntu.

    So from my standpoint, the time I've invested in helping you try and resolve the problem is now wasted because you have jumped to a different problem and now I have to figure out just where you are and how you got there with very little info from you. If you want further help, stop with the waaaaabulance pleas and work the problem
