    Knoppix 7.7.1 flash-knoppix

    I'm using KNOPPIX_V7.7.1DVD-2016-10-22-EN.
    I boot using the DVD and run Install KNOPPIX to flash disk.
    When I try to boot from the USB all I get is a blinking cursor...
    I have a Active@Boot USB that works in the computer I'm using.
    I do notice that my boot menu shows the Knoppix USB as 'USB-ZIP0 : SanDisk' under the 'Removable' section of the menu.
    When I boot from my Active@Boot USB the boot menu show it as 'USB-HHD0 : USB DISK' under the 'Hard Disk' section of the menu.

    Any help would be appreciated... where do I start to make this work

    I'm puzzled why one machine will see it as USB-ZIP0 and others as USB-HHD0. I'm going to look at the disk type byte(s) and see what (if any) difference there is between the boot-able USB created by Active@Boot and the one created by flash-knoppix. Can anyone point me to where the disk type byte(s) may (or what they should) be?
    Another thing I'm going to do is create the USB on a machine that does see it as USB-HDD0...
