AussieJohn Posted February 26, 2012 Report Share Posted February 26, 2012 Hello all. I have been experimenting with installing Mageia-2 Beta-1 via a 16Gb Kingston Data Traveller. I learned how to Install the iso onto the Memory stick and did it successfully, I am pleased to say. However when I try to install the Mageia onto my chosen partition on the Hard Drive from the stick, the process reaches the section to choose language and totally freezes. It does it time after time. I tried it all out again on my now spare backup Computer and get the same result so I think that maybe the stick is corrupted even though I carefully checked everything during the "burn" to the memory stick. Now I find that although the Memory stick is shown in the Device Notifier and can be opened to show all the folders and files etc., it does not show up in Mageia Control Centre so I am not able to reformat the USB stick to do a "burn" using a freshly downloaded iso. I can see I should have partitioned the memory stick because the stick only registers as 3.4 Gbs ( the size of the iso download in the first place). So now how do I get to wipe the memory stick to start all over fresh again ???. Should I use a console to wipe it clean etc and if so what are the cli instructions to do same. Cheers. John.
