Hi,

1st did you use unetbootin to make your bootable BBox USB ? If you have problem with this tool, you can try http://www.linuxliveusb.com/.

Check this and we will see what you need to do after this.

P.S. Don't forget to format your USB before you try to use it with BBox.

Cheers !


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

** pls check your keyboard layout in "BBMenu->Settings->Setting Manager->Keyboard" and verify if "Use system defaults" being selected, if so it is OK otherwise you have to click on that or select your proper (italian in your case) keyboard lang....

** You have not installed BB on your usb stick, it is like live cd/dvd, whatever changes you do it will be lost after rebooting, it will be restored to the original stage. Pls dig around internet for how persistence mode works, you will find plenty tutorials about.

** If you check the system logs i.e. dmesg and post here the logs related to the network issue we can help you, it might be hardware issue, pls try to give further details when you ask any question, we can't help you otherwise.

Ciao!
