These instructions help with determining and setting disk partitions as bootable devices.
- Check the disk partition table for a device, such as
sudo fdisk -l /dev/sdc<----that's a lowercase letter 'L' for the list option.
toggle 1 boot
You should see something like the following:
$ sudo fdisk -l /dev/sdc Disk /dev/sdc: 4012 MB, 4012900352 bytes 124 heads, 62 sectors/track, 1019 cylinders, total 7837696 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x0000a9c7 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdc1 * 62 7834071 3917005 c W95 FAT32 (LBA)
The asterisk, * , under the Boot column indicates that the partition is bootable.
