Hi,

you can burn a cd-rom? I think in that way you can solve ;)

Sometimes you need to update the bios to get better support for usb boot.

Hi Zormein
Although we don't support  unetbootin, see:
http://tinycorelinux.net/faq.html#pendrives

Here is a fairly recent  "How to"  web page for installing Tinycore using  unetbootin  that might help:
https://www.xmodulo.com/how-to-install-tiny-core-linux-on-usb-drive.html
Did you remember to select the  Diskimage  option?

I updated my BIOS and that didn't sadly work. And i can't use a CD because 1. I don't have one and 2. I don't have a CD reader

I tried installing Core Plus on the USB using Core Plus on a VM. But then it showed up in the boot menu but when i choose it it just goes back to the boot screen.

Hello Forum,

There is the Rufus tool. There has been instances where Rufus properly works for
stated purpose.

Thx

Your USB drive is not showing? Have you added the USB port to the boot device list? It's in BIOS setup.

Hi Zormein
Boot into Arch Linux.
Plug in the USB stick and identify which device it is assigned to (sdb, sdc, sde, etc.).
Download the ISO file.
For 32 bit:
http://tinycorelinux.net/12.x/x86/release/
For 64 bit:
http://tinycorelinux.net/12.x/x86_64/release/

The following will overwrite the entire contents of your USB stick.
If your USB stick is  sde  and if you downloaded  CorePlus-12.0.iso  then write the ISO to the stick like this:
Code: [Select]
dd if=CorePlus-12.0.iso of=/dev/sdeSee if it boots now.
