[solved] SolydX 64-bit on USB stick not booting

I burned the SolydX 64-bit ISO image (md5sum was OK) to an usb stick with the unetbootin from a SolydX 32-bit installation and booted my PC from that usb stick, but the boot process stoped with the message:

Code: Select all

platform microcode: firmware: agent aborted loading intel-ucode/06-0f-0b (not found?)
If this message is CPU-related, my CPU is an Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz.

Could you provide a little more information? I don't think the CPU is the problem. Did you check the md5 to make sure the download was good. Did you make the USB stick from within Windows? What program did you use? I try lots of distros and sometimes Unetbootin will work, other times Universal-USB-Installer or LinuxLive USB Creator will work. Unfortunately there are some distros that I've only gotten to work by burning an actual DVD. With SolydX I have gotten USB Live to work, but I don't remember how? Don't give up, SolydX is very nice once you get it going.

Thank you, jsalpha2! You are right, SolydX is very nice!
I updated my post with answers to your questions. I will try also a boot from a DVD.

I installed SolydX 64-bit from a DVD without any problems.
Thanks to jsalpha2 for the tip!
