How To Boot From A USB Flash Drive / Pen Drive

Having a bootable USB is very essential, especially if you are a Netbook user. Using bootable USB to install an operating system (OS) not only makes the installation faster, but also saves a DVD.

step by step

1. Insert your USB (Pen Drive) stick to the system.

2. Navigate to Start > All programs >Accessories > right click on Command Prompt and select run as administrator.

3. When the Command Prompt opens, enter the following command:

DISKPART and hit enter.
"wait for a while"
LIST DISK and hit enter.

Once you enter the LIST DISK command, it will show the disk number of your USB drive. In the below image my USB drive disk no is Disk 1.

4. In this step you need to enter all the below commands one by one and hit enter.

"Replace DISK 1 with your disk number"

"Format process may take few seconds"

Don’t close the command prompt as we need to execute one more command at the next step. Just minimize it.

5. Insert your Windows DVD in the optical drive and note down the drive letter of the optical drive and USB media. Here I use “G” as my optical (DVD) drive letter and “H” as my USB drive letter.
"or you can mount iso image"

6. Go back to command prompt and execute the following commands:

G: CD BOOT and hit enter.
BOOTSECT.EXE/NT60 H: and hit enter.

7. Copy Windows DVD contents to USB.
"copy either by xcopy or use GUI"

now boot through USB nd enjoyyyyyyyyyyy

100% work

Marvell Yukon 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller Driver for Linux

That is the case, just install a linux system is red hat RHEL 5, or Enterprise Edition. Installed a good system, was found inside the network settings did not recognize the hardware, can not be network settings. My own laptop is a dell inspiron 1525, an integrated network card.
windows under the normal Internet access, and the card information: Marvell Yukon 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller.
The problem now is I can not find this card in the drive under linux.

centos or rhel4&5 - ethernet not detected

Below are the reuire details.

$>uname -rmi
output - 2.6.18-92.e15PAE i686 i386

$>for BUSID in $(/sbin/lspci | awk '{ IGNORECASE=1 } /net/ { print $1 }'); do /sbin/lspci -s $BUSID -m; /sbin/lspci -s $BUSID -n; done

output -
09:00:0 "Ethernet controller" marvell Technology Group Ltd." "88E8040 PCI-E FastEthernet controller" -13 "dell" "unknown device 02aa"
09:00.0 0200: llab:4354 (rev 13)
0c:00:0 "network controller" "broadcom corporation" "BCM4310 USB controller" -r01 "dell" "unknown device 000c"
0c:00.0 0280: 14e4:4315 (rev 01)

The first step is to use another system and download the kABI tracking kmod-sk98lin package that is available from ELRepo.

As you are running a 32-bit system with a PAE kernel, the package you require is kmod-sk98lin-PAE- which can be found here.

Transfer that package to your laptop via some form of removable medium (USB memory stick, CD-RW, floppy disk, etc) and, as root, install it by --

rpm -ivh kmod-sk98lin-PAE-

Now edit your /etc/modprobe.conf file so that there is one alias line that references the eth0 device --

alias eth0 sk98lin

At this point I would recommend that you re-boot your laptop after
connecting it to a wired Internet source. You should now be able to
configure the system (if necessary) by running system-config-network.
