I''m working on an Acer Aspire One notebook ZG5, that has XP home sp,3 an 8 gig ssd, 1 gig ram, & no cd. It will not boot. It just goes into a loop after the MS boot screen. You can see a quick bsod, but I can't pause it. Then it reboots. I tried all the different safe modes, nothing. I tried alt + f10 to do a recovery without a CD, it goes back to the loop. I went into the bios & changed it to boot the from my external USB CD. It reads the Acer recovery cd then goes back to the loop. It booted from the cd with PHLAK 3.0 & Ubuntu. Phlak stopped with an error that said "can't find Phlak file system sorry" & "/static/ash:can't access tty; job turned off" Ubuntu errors were, "can't find Morphix file system, sorry" & "/static/ash: can't access tty; job control turned off" What do these errors mean? Does this mean the SSD is shot? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

My first guess is that the live CDs you have tried may not have the required USB modules compiled in the kernel. There is typically a two stage boot order. In a nutshell the BIOS passes off control
to the USB drive which loads the basic kernel. The kernel then needs to mount the CD to load everything else but can not find it since the necessary drivers to access the drive are unavailable.

Another alternative would be to try a version of pendrive linux on a USB memory stick.

Thanks michaelk for the quick post. I'll try it now. I booted with Wincare to the dos mode prompt & got this error, when trying the "dir" command. " Bad or missing command interpreter". Maybe the SSD drive has died. I'll try your suggestion & get back. Thanks Ed
