    me ayudas gracias
    no encuentra nada en la web me encontre con Sardu no terminar de hacer el ISo

    1. Sorry you will have to ask to Unetbootin developers.
      Anyways I recommend you to download latest stable Super Grub2 Disk and use the official instructions on how to put it into a USB.

  2. Boot from iso SGD2 v2.02s9 not work….
    my step is :
    1. Formating USB Drive
    2. Install GRUB2 from ubuntu to my USB with command :
    grub-install –force –removable –boot-directory=/mnt/USB/boot /dev/sdd
    (sdd1 is my usb device)
    3. Replacing FIles ( Copy Files From GD2 v2.02s9 ISO Files to MY Usb )
    4. Add Iso Files To MY USB to folder \boot\boot-isos
    4. Boot from my usb is work….but Boot from iso from SG2D Boot iso not work…. can u explain what is wrong

    1. > Boot from iso from SG2D Boot iso not work…. can u explain what is wrong
      Just missed that part:

      At ‘Extra options’ menu I think that there’s an option where you can choose if iso files are to searched or not in the same device where SG2D lives. It’s next to the floppy and cdrom one.
