musher0,
Where can I download the latest 'puduan_7.0.0a2-2'?

Also taking another tack, what does your '.zp' look like?
This is the output I get for 'bionicpup32' using the latest 'iso2zip' script:
Code:
root# unzip -Z -1 bionicpup32-8.0+3-uefi.zip
bionicpup32/

@musher0,

It's a very "interesting" '.zip', I guess you didn't produce it using 'iso2zip'.
But it looks like '/puppy' does contain the "necessary" files to boot, ('vmlinuz', 'initrd.gz' and the relevant '.sfs' files).

Which brings us back to the usb stick.
What is the output from the following command?
Code:
fatlabel /dev/sdi1

because my GParted can't do it.
The menu entry for labelig is greyed out.
Very strange.
When I use GParted to create a new fat32 partition, the "Partition Name" field is grayed, but the "Label" field is not.
I can even type "usbpboot" (without the quotes) into the "Label" field and GParted automaticly converts it to upper case, since it's a fat32 partition.

I've uploaded the following files to http://www.mediafire.com/folder/7y3c7eafptzao/zipboot:
'mio20_bionicpup32_8.0.zip' (276.8 MiB)
'iso2zip.zip' (4.6 MiB)
'puppy_usb_stick.zip' (4.7 MiB)

These updates are mainly to reflect 'FrugalPup v20', see http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1052566#1052566.
So both "uefi" and "non-uefi" boots are supported.
"uefi" "Secure Boot" is supported with a Puppy MOK.

Booting nolonger depends on the volume label of the fat32 boot partiton, it can be anything, or non-existent.

The 'iso2zip.zip' file now includes 'puppy_usb_stick.zip'.
So, just download 'iso2zip.zip' and unzip it into some directory.
Then in a console with that directory as the current directory, simply run "./iso2zip".
