I am having trouble getting my MSI X610 to boot Slackware that I have installed on it. I have tried using Slackware 13.3.7 and 14.1, and both hang at the same stage early in the boot process. I installed both from a USB memoery stick set up using UniversalUSBInstaller 18.104.22.168 from pendrivelinux.com.
In the screenshot the general information of the stick:
In the bios I set the multi flash reader before the HD and tried to boot directly from the stick on the boot override options, no cigar. I know the boot order and the boot override works because I tested with a bootable DVD and it was prioritized by the order and skipped when I used the boot override.
Platform: AMD Athlon64 3200+ running Windows XP. With your help I managed to download Ubuntu to a memory stick and run it from that. I liked it and decided to install it alongside XP, so started installation. Installation completed and asked to reboot.
Machine failed to shut down, so after ten mins or so I shut it down manually and brought it back up again.
I installed Ubuntu using a USB stick (followed Ubuntu installation instructions for USB using UUI) on an existing windows 7 pc. I used an old unused partition (which had an old fedora distro) It installed successfully.
Is there a way I can edit the Grub Menu so I can make grub list Damn Small Linux and then have it proceed to boot DSL from a memory stick (NOT Flashrdive). Where do I begin? I'm stuck on the "root to" entry.

It is a dual boot machine with F18 installed on /dev/sda3. In order to boot F18, I have created (during F18 installation) an MBR on a USB stick. So now when I insert the USB stick, my laptop boots F18 system (otherwise it boots Win7). MBR on HDD boots only Win7 and I do not want to touch or modify it.
