Crashes when booting from USB

Dear Amikit,

I have installed Amikit Live to a Transcend USB stick. When I try to boot it I reach the first Amikit screen. After that it goes back to a DOS screen filled with various messages and fails to load further. Any idea what could be wrong? I'm running this from a PC running Windows 8. Thanks.

how did you create the boot USB flash disk? Burn the AmiKit ISO to CD and try to boot from CD to see whether it works. If yes, follow these instructions to install it on USB stick:

Alternatively you can try original Slacko Puppy Linux AmiPUP is based on that.

Thanks for the reply and for the help. I used a program to "burn" the ISO directly to the USB unit, so that it is just like a CD. I will give your suggestions a go to see if that works. Cheers!
