Is a 2GB USB drive too big for booting the Kogan agora netbook?
Over the last few days I have been trying to USB boot different operation systems on my Kogan agora pro, such as UNR and the recently released ‘koganised’ gOS iso.
I have two USB drives of the same brand. One is 1GB, and the other 2GB. I found that I can only get the 1GB USB drive to boot – the 2GB drive fails with “
boot error“. Other users have also reported this behaviour.
I believe this may be an issue with the FAT16/FAT32 file systems, however I have not investigated further.
If you are trying to USB boot your agora to install or even just try another operating system such as UNR, you may need to consider using a 1GB USB drive. If anyone has any more information, or if you have been able to boot with 2GB or larger USB drives, please post the details below.
