grub4dos info
i believe the problem is with some mobos that "see" the pen as a usb fdd has some problems with grub mbr, and the mobos that "see" it as usb hdd boots fine.

but then i tried something diferent, ive formated the pen in ntfs with hp format tool, copy the grldr and grldr.mbr to the pen, and renamed those files to ntldr and ntldr.mbr...and it BOOTS!!!

and then...another problem...the pen boots but cant find menu.lst, because the built in menu of grub haves the --ignore-floppies option, and to solve that problem ive opend the ntldr file that i renamed with a hex editor and located the --ignore-floppie options and remove that...saved the fille and voillá.

all things work fine now.. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

btw theres some problem with the las version of grub4dos (21-04-2007)...i have a tool called goldmemory wich in use with that version starts the tests automaticaly (dont know the reason why, but with older versions it doesnt happens)
