Can anyone help me with this? I have installed Void twice before on this machine just fine, but I decided to reload it recently (no real reason), wiped my disk and made a liveboot usb which doesn’t boot.
I have tried
sudo dd if=void.iso of=/dev/sdb (using the proper iso name) both with and without
bs=4M. I have checked that the usb stick is indeed /dev/sdb. I have tried writing the image on a few different machines and USB sticks.
I have hash checked the downloaded image.
I have been through my BIOS settings several times, USB is top priority and there are no settings that would restrict it from booting.
The screen only gives me a flashing bar cursor that will happily tick away for hours.
I am trying to install the live i686 command line image onto a ThinkPad X200s. This worked first time during my first time with void Linux a while ago. The other live void images also do not work.
If I write the live image directly to the hard disk I am using, it will boot. But it will then not install to disk, even when choosing the RAM option from the GRUB menu.
Other distributions like tinycore Linux boot fine, it is just Void, it seems.
Used an iso from https://repo.voidlinux.eu/live/20170220/
Instead of from the current repo.
(Much thanks to cr6, for solution and others for replies and ideas!)
