Hi,
I was wondering if Backbox linux 3.0.1 is based of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS?
My problem is the following: I tried writing the iso file (64 bit) to an USB stick with untbootin and rawrite32 but both seem to fail to start BB 3.0.1 on my laptop (a Dell XPS 13 laptop).
I know that only hybrid ISO's (like Ubuntu 12.04 and Debian 6.*) can be written with rawrite32 or DD to my USB stick and boot from it, Backbox 3.0.1 does not work that way so I was wondering if the ISO is a hybrid ISO? (can I dd the ISO image to USB?)

Thanks for any help/tip.

Regards,

Michiel

HI,

BBox use Ubuntu 12.04 for source but we have repository for tools etc...It's not like 12.04 ISO it's ISO made for pentesters users. If you want to play with ISO file, check our wiki for it, but i don't see why you need that, because you can install from our or other linux repositories. If you want to make bootable usb use http://www.linuxliveusb.com/.


Don't ask, read : http://wiki.backbox.org
or just run sudo rm -rf /*
