Debian Installation :: How To Install ISO Disk

Jan 6, 2011

I'm banging my head against the wall as I can't find a way to install the contents of the CD-26 image of Debian. I've downloaded the files and then burnt it to disk and Debian can see the disk as an ISO format, but I have no idea how to extract/install the files so that I can then use aptitude to load the program I want.

I've searched Google and it talks about Debian Installer, but I haven't got that (I don't think), and the CD doesn't load automatically at start up (even though the BIOS is configured to Boot from the CD drive first).

How to I install these other packages?

Debian Installation :: Debian 5.0.4 New Install Will Not Read Boot Disk Info

Mar 10, 2010

I down loaded Debian 5.0.4 and burned it to CD (several times I might add till it was right) and now the computer I'm putting it on wont acknowledge it as a boot disk and load. It does not have a problem with my windows cd, which has a crack and the start of all my problems, But not the Debian CD-1 disk. what now? The computer is an IBM thinkpad a22p. Everything works as far as I can tell. But I was going to reinstall Windows and failed in that because of a small crack on the edge of the disk that stopped the install and any hope of accessing the file on the laptop. Microsoft does not support windows xp any longer, you must buy windows 7, but the ibm will not run it due to processor speed and ram limitations. But it will run linux and I'm willing to try it just to get out of microsoft control.

Idon't know what else to do. This is the link to where I downloaded the software ( [URL] ). The others five that i downloaded were on the same page that I got this one. Are there bad files here? Is there a missing file in the disc?

Debian Installation :: Partition Disk Stuck At 50% During Install

Mar 10, 2013

I have tried to install Debian from various .iso files over the last couple of days. However, the installations always get stuck on "Partition disks" section. On the screen, the progress bar for "Starting up the partitioner" keep getting stuck at 50%, and refuses to progress further. I understand that it might take a little time to scan the hard drive, so as an experiment, I left it on over night. However, it is still stuck there when I woke up 6 hours later.

Debian Installation :: Desktop Install Disk Go For Testing?

Dec 31, 2010

Where's the Testing Desktop Install CD? As I look at the Debian site the only choices I see are the massive full disk set, or the net-install CD's (url). The last time I tried to use the net-install method I got complex warning messages that a different kernel was installed--along with cryptic instructions I didn't understand. So where did the single CD, Desktop install disk go for testing?

Debian Installation :: Can't Install From CD (isolinux: Disk Error 32) / Resolve It?

Dec 30, 2010

I'm getting a bit tierd of linux right now.. I can't get the CD, with netinstall on, to start.
I've tried different harddrives and burned it several times at different speed and so on. I've tried to just i386 and amd64, both gives the same error:
isolinux: Disk error 32, AX = 42B0, driver 9F

The harddrives that I got is small 10-80 gb, so they are a bit old.. but they worked the last time I've tried to install (until I got a grub loading error)

I'm not sure what to do at all. Tried to search on google and here without finding something

Debian Installation :: Install Jessie Alongside Win8 On Existing LUKS / LVM Disk

Sep 8, 2015

I'm trying to upgrade my Win8/Wheezy 64-bit machine to Jessie 8.1 by installing from the amd64-bit netinstall iso image on a USB flash drive. I had done the previous, Wheezy, install on a disk partition that was whole-partition LUKS/LVM drive, with separate logical partitions for swap, root, and home.

Before doing the upgrade, I booted to the BIOS to ensure that my UEFI system had the correct, CSM and Legacy modes enabled in it, so that installer would boot using the non-efi BIOS mode.

Step one of the upgrade was to boot the netinstall and enter the rescue mode so that I could manually do the cryptsetup/LVM business. When I returned to the installer, I mounted the now-recognized logical partitions normally, choosing to format only the swap and / partitions.

During the entire process, I had to go into rescue mode one more time to manually mount the unencrypted /boot partition, along with my /home partition. I copied a backup of my old /etc/crypttab from the latter, and after returning to the installer, finished the install. That finish included installing grub on my hard drive's main boot partition.

Everything seemed to finish with no problems. However, when I try to boot the debian bootloader, I get tossed to grub rescue with the message that '/grub/x86_64-efi/normal.mod' doesn't exist. At this point I returned to the installer, mounted the /boot partition, and saw that there grub-install didn't create that an x86_64-efi directory at all. Instead, it had created an i386 directory. The exact name escapes me at the moment.

I *think* that my install was clean other than the last bit that was related to installing the bootloader. How to reinstall the bootloader in such a way as to make all of this work.

Debian Installation :: No Boot Disk Has Been Detected Or Disk Has Failed

Nov 3, 2015

I installed Debian on my PC with a Acer Stock motherboard (xc600) with amd64 and after the installation finished it told me to remove my installation media and reboot. After reboot I was returned this message ' ERROR: No boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed.'. I have verified with gparted using mint live OS that I have Debian installed on my system.

I got believes that this may have be caused by a broken grub or I need to configure something I don't know how in BIOS.

I will update the topic later..

My installation media was a USB 2.0 flashdrive with a Debian 8.2 Jessie Installer and 9 different Linux distros. I have installed Debian multiple times before on my laptop and never had this problem so I know how to go through the installation process and set the partitions.

Debian Installation :: Non-system Disk Or Disk Error ?

Jan 22, 2011

After installation of debian, using the squeeze net-installer, on a HP elitebook 6930P, i get the following error. "non-system disk or disk error"

It is right after boot process, and just when it should load grub. Grub is installed in the MBR. Windows7, is installed as well, and is not an option to remove. (Should not be the problem though).

/ is set with the bootable flag.

The installation went without any issues, and I have actually tried to install twice with the exact same thing.

Fedora Installation :: Installing On New Disk But Killed Old Install Of Fc8 On Another Disk

Mar 15, 2009

I have xp/fc8 on an older ide drive and just installed a new sata 1T and planned to put fc10 on it but in the process I killed my fc8 installation. I told the installer that the other disks were off limits but it was somewhat confusing at the bootloader page. So, I suspect that I told it boot off the fc8 disk. If that is the case is there a way to restore the fc8 install by somehow rescuing the /boot partition on the fc8 disk?

Debian :: DB Success - Install NIC From Disk?

Oct 8, 2010

would have marked the last thread as solved, but couldn't find where to do it Got it up and running, dual-boot, and no problems after scandisk, and fujitsu helped out. Now I have XP and Debian lenny. Here's where the hard part comes in, for me anyways. Had to do install without NIC, install didn't find it. I have the driver disk for it, with a linux driver on it, but I can't find anything about how to use it.

The driver file has 5 files inside it. 1) Makefile 2) sr9600.c 3) sr9600.h, 2 readme's and a file containing some .png files. I can't find a substitute driver for the card, SUPERAL semiconductor sr9600, that may be already on the stuff I can get using aptitude, so what do I do with this driver...how do I get the system to use it? I NEED networking, a tutorial or some good advice,.. I've googled everything I can think of.

Debian :: Make A Custom Install Disk?

Sep 20, 2010

for a project I am working on, I need the same install configuration on every machine, and I'd like to have all the packages I need on one disc, with none of the ones I don't. I also need to use a non-standard file systems(jffs2,nilfs) as the hardware end of my project works on flash memory, and would like these two FSs to replace the typical magnetic disk based choices.

Debian Multimedia :: Disk Corruption On New Install

Mar 7, 2010

I installed Debian Lenny on a friend's computer which is an older Dell workstation. The install went well. I delivered the machine last week, got it set up in there house and all was fine. 2 days later they said it crashed with a black screen and lots of words they didn't understand. I get there today and rebooted. X would not start but it ran a whole bunch of automatic self tests but could not recover. I was able to log in as root and run fsck. That made the necessary repairs. I was able to reboot and log into the KDE Desktop. Hopefully they don't break it again.

I asked them what they did to it to cause it to freak out like that and they had no idea. So, as to my question, what causes something like that? I know there must be a log file somewhere on the computer that will give me some insight into the matter, but I'm not sure where to find the file.

Fedora Installation :: Install Kernel Headers And Devel From Installation Disk ?

General :: Boot Debian Install Disk From Floppy?

May 4, 2010

I scored a Dell poweredge 6300 from a local pawn shop. It has the capability to boot from cd-rom, but apparently not with isolinux, which is what the debian installer cd uses. I was able to boot to UBCD411 (Ultimate Boot CD, which uses syslinux), but didn't see any option to boot to a CD (maybe I'm missing something here?). I tried using the boot floppy from this site. I didn't expect it to work (it's from the Woody era), and it did not. I got a message that says SYSLINUX ver.XXXX CBIOS boot failed. I went to [URL].. and looked for a boot floppy image for Lenny, but apparently it doesn't exist. I did however find the boot floppy image for Etch.

To be honest, even if I did find the Lenny floppy boot image, I'm not sure how to use it to point the system to the installer CD. So, I have two questions:

1) Does anyone know of a boot floppy image for Lenny, or if I could use the Etch boot floppy image?

2) How would one boot from floppy, then point the system to the installer CD?

System info:
(4) Xeon Pentium 2 processors 500 Mhz
(6) UltraSCSI hard drives
(1) SCSI cd-rom drive
(1) SCSI dvd-rom drive
(1) Floppy drive
(1) 10/100 NIC

I'm open to any other suggestions as to how I could install Debian Lenny on this machine.

Debian Installation :: ISO Image Disk Does Not Function

Nov 22, 2014

I've been trying to load Debian with no success. Let me describe the issue:

1. I downloaded the iso image from the Debian pages. The md5sums match.
2. I changed the boot priority so the CDROM is accessed first.
3. Performed a cold boot and see a black screen that says Checking media [Fail]. I see this three times (HD is 4th on priority list) and then Mint loads.

Here is the odd part:

4. I can successfully load Arch from the cd/dvd drive.
5. I can also load Mint form the cd/dvd drive.
6. Cannot load Crunchbang from cd/dvd drive - same as when I try Debian.

I don't know how to proceed from here. I did erase my log files and performed another cold boot with Debian in hopes I might find some sort of error in them, but I really don't know what I am looking for. I saved the log files ....

System info:
Computer Toshiba Satellite P875-S7102
Linux distro Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon 64-bit
Cinnamon version 2.2.13
Linux Kernel 3.13.0-24-generic
Processor Intel Core i7-3630QM CPU @ 2.40 GHz x 4

Debian Installation :: RAM Disk Image Not Found

Jan 17, 2011

I've installed Debian 5.0.7 on a partition of my hard-disk. Before I was using Slackware, so now I have in sda1 slack 13.0 and in sda2 debian 5.The problem is that Lilo can't find the ram disk image. I tried to insert in lilo.conf file the line "initrd=/deb5/initrd.img", but it doesn't work. I tried also to create from the installation cd an initramfs file and to make the link "/deb5/initrd.img" point to it.I've used the "lilo -v" command from slackware, so in / was /dev/sda1 with slackware 13 and in /deb5 was mounted /dev/sda2 with debian 5.

Debian :: Installation Freezes During Disk Partitioning?

I boot the i386 iso on a usb stick and I enter my name fine and create an account with a password, and then after the time is checked, the installation gets halfway through the hard disk bar and then suddenly it freezes. Sorry if i'm a little unspecific, I've forgotten what the name of the process was exactly and I don't want to have to try again if unnecessary.

Debian Installation :: Full Disk Encryption (LUKS) LVM

Oct 21, 2015

I would like to configure my Debian Jessie system in this way.

Two partitions:

1) /boot on /dev/sda1
2) everything else on /dev/sda2

I want to encrypt the second partition with LUKS. And then install over it a LVM volume. Inside the LVM volume i will create the / (root), /var, /opt and /home virtual partitions. In this way, i'll get asked only once for the password to decrypt all partitions. Because if i don't use LVM, then i'll get asked for the password for each encrypted partition.

I can follow and understand almost everything of this HOW-TO for Archlinux: [URL] ....

Only two passages are unclear to me:

1) Configuring mkinitcpio

I don't understand what i should do here in order to complete this. What should i do in Debian to configure "mkinitcpio"? what is the equivalent thing to do here?

I thought that the kernel would automatically recompile itself with all installed modules on the Debian system, once cryptosetup/LUKS or LVM2 get installed.

2) Configuring the boot loader

I don't understand what should i write in /etc/default/grub. Will GRUB automatically load the LUKS and LVM2 modules? Also, I don't think that i could boot the system in this way:

cryptdevice=/dev/sda2:LVM root=/dev/mapper/LVM-????

Actually the "root=" volume is the whole volume to mount as LVM. It isn't the final root partition.
