Hi Klaus: I think Knoppix is a very good product and like using it, but I am missing the boot-only version
.iso for 7.0.5 – like
KNOPPIX_V7.0.5bootonly-2012-12-21-EN. It is not on any of the mirrors I have checked. (I am aware that it should be possible to create a boot-only ISO, like when running in a virtual box).
My BIOS Fujitsu Siemens // Phoenix Technologies Ltd version 4.06 Rev. 1.05.1527, date: 03/12/2003, does not allow booting from a USB. It seems it is not possible to boot the 7.0.5 USB version from the CD
KNOPPIX_V7.0.4bootonly-2012-08-20-EN without losing some setup. (It works fine, of course, with 7.0.4 USB.)
Hope you will take the time to answer.
