Dear List -
Back from vacation.
I formatted the usb stick as FAT16 loaded the DOS OS and the Bios update.
The laptop would not boot from the stick. Set the boot parameters to
boot from the usb stick. Computer freezes. Noticed that the laptop
recognizes the usb stick at FAT32.
Formatted the usb stick and loaded the DOS OS.
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdb1 * 32 63487 31728 e W95 FAT16 (LBA)
The directory /media/usbstick exists.
Can not create the directory for the bios.
rosenberg:/# mount /dev/sdb1 /media/usbstick
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
rosenberg:/# mount -t e /dev/sdb1 /media/usbstick
mount: unknown filesystem type 'e'
rosenberg:/# mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /media/usbstick
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
If you need more information, please tell me.
I'm confused about why the usb stick isn't mounted automatically. Most
are. However the partition type and the file system are two different
I'm not sure that the file system is actually correct. Did you format it
using mkdosfs -F 16 /dev/sdb1 or did you use some other command?
Once is it correctly formatted, you should have no trouble mounting it.
