Thanks for the answers!
I'm trying to run an image file from a USB flash drive. On the USB
flash drive I got the Ubuntu Core image using dd:
# unxz ubuntu-15.04-snappy-amd64-generic.img.xz
# sudo dd if=ubuntu-15.04-snappy-amd64-generic.img of=/dev/sdb bs=4M
Happen a hardware detection, system to freezes. Syslog in the attachment.
Another time I'm trying got the Ubuntu Core image using command:
# sudo dd if=ubuntu-15.04-snappy-amd64-generic.img of=/dev/sdb bs=32M
After started the boot from USB flash drive I got a black screen. I
don't see grub and loading of system does not start.
