    Backtrack on USB Flash Drive


    Hi
    I downloaded the Linux Backtrack for USB and when I extracted the RAR I got the folders: boot and BT3. I copied these to my flash drive and tried to boot on my laptop but I got a "missing Operating System" error.

    What do I need to do to get this to boot?

    Thanks

    You didn't make it bootable - there's no bootloader installed on your USB stick.

    You can check out the Backtrack How-To's.
