Try redoing the smaller drive.

I've got the same problem. I've tried two different USB pen drives with the same result. "could not find kernel image: linux boot: _"

Now what?

I figured it out. Okay, I'm a girl, so you can bet I did something wrong! And, I did.

I did NOT explode the contents of the .ISO image when I wrote it to the USB stick, just copied the image. Wrong! Once I opened the .ISO image and copied the contents all worked as advertised! Note: this has to be done on a Mac, Windows will not let you see the contents of the .ISO image. I then had to re-do the OSX DVD image on the big partition of the USB stick, because it was buried in a subdirectory and the boot routine couldn't find it. I'm waiting for the DVD to finish imaging now. If I did that right, I should have a OS X Mini 9 by tonight.

Cheers!

It can be done also in Windows, with a lot of programs: UltraISO, PowerISO, Alcohol120% and much more

I think from your sentence that MAC OS can open ISO files without any additional prog, it can open ISO natively, right?

Yes, OS 10 can. XP, with the software I use on my machine, won't let me view the contents of an ISO image. I thought WinZip might, but no go. OS 10 did, with no issues. It saved my bacon, too!
