I have a Tashiba Satallite Widnows 7 64-bit computer, using the CSM booting option, with Windows 8.1 currently installed. I use an 8G SanDisk Cruzer Glide Flash Drive and my preferred medium is to install a live version of a stable Slitaz 4.0 iso on this simple flash drive. I have tried formatting the flash drive using NTSF, Fat32, and exFAT. No matter what I do, I can't get Slitaz to boot up and work for me. I've been trying to install Slitaz on this flash drive for more than a year with no luck at all. (Peppermint OS, and Ubuntu do install on the flash drive -- and I know, reading over and over again, that Slitaz is not Ubuntu. I get that. I just want to install this very clever distro live on my uncorrupted flash drive without issue.) Also, it did not work in Windows 7 for me before installing 8.1 either.
I've read what I could on the subject. Everything seems to be a no-no that I'm doing so I see, but I can't think of any other way to install the 4.0 distro. I just want the thing to boot up and work like it did at one time for me with my old and retired HP Vista 64 bit computer.
Also I've checked all MD5 checksums, and all match perfectly.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated. No hurry. I can't wait longer if need be, but I'd like to work and learn more about Linux and Slitaz if my computer will permit it.
Thank you, anybody and all, for any help or suggestions at all.
