Is my CPU compatible with Backtrack 5?
  

I was able to use all previous versions of backtracking on this computer, but when I pit the 32-bit version of KDE to boot from my flash drive and boot, I get an error saying: "This requires a processor core x86-64, but only detected an i1686 CPU unable to boot -. Please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU. ?I have an Intel Core Duo T2050. Backtrack 5 how I can run on this computer more? Why do I get this error, but when I run Backtrack 5 from a DVD instead of booting from a flash drive works fine? Backtrack 5 This works perfectly when booting from the DVD. When I try to boot from my flash drive using the same 32-bit image, I get that error I wrote above. Why is this?

Re: Is my CPU compatible with Backtrack 5?

I was also facing the exact problem which u facing now. I have spend lot of time in finding the exact problem and finding its solution than one day I figured out its an install error to usb or setting go into to your bios and check the settings. After finding the exact cause I fixed it. I tried much application for this like unetbootin and many more. If anyone facing similar problem than they can reply me here with exact scenario.

Code:
partitions are messed up  and deleted  all partitions using fdisk in Linux 
fdisk -l
select your usb xxxx
fdisk /dev/xxxx
press d then 1
press d then 2
press d then 3
press w and enter
windows uses disk manager and delete all partitions on your usb. Format the usb

Re: Is my CPU compatible with Backtrack 5?

When I type modprobe usb-storage, says nothing and just goes to another line, so you can write a new command. When I type dmesg, it says a lot, but I just copied the end, where it mentions USB. This is what it says:

Code:
