Ubuntu :: Create Custom Boot Disk?

Feb 2, 2010

We have a project we are working on and wanted to know if it is possible using the ubuntu(or any linux) boot disk.

We need the disk to first wipe the hard disk in the notebook, then perform a hardware test(testing processor/hdd/ram/display) then it should reimage the machine and reboot from the HDD.

I am thinking of using grub4dos to boot(and timeout to the HDD)

and partition image to image the HDD... but i do not know any cli software for the others...

For note the disk has to be completely automated as we don't have the headcount to recheck every machine every few minutes.

Ubuntu :: Create A List, From LiveCD, Of What Programs Are Installed On HDD?

Jan 4, 2011

I made this thread last night~[URL]... Because my Ubuntu failed, and i have no idea why. I hadnt done anything different or risky.. and Ive no idea what to do. So, It appears Im going to have to do a re-install. Which, I really dont mind too much... (especially with Ubuntu) But It will stink if i *again* lose all my bookmarks , and lose track of all my installed programs. The programs, not as much of an issue as the bookmarks in my browser.. I would like to know, If I can somehow access the HDD from the LiveCD, So that I can create just a simple text list of all programs installed on the hdd? I cannot access my HDD except through the LiveCD So is there a way I can do this? Some kind of simple command I can toss into terminal, and have it output me a text file of all programs installed? or something? I really am totally clueless on how I would be able to save my chromium bookmarks.

General :: Create Custom Terminal Boot Mode Under Ubuntu?

Aug 5, 2011

I wonder if it would be possible to create a custom boot menu entry in grub under Ubuntu (11.04), that boots the system into terminal instead of the login screen.

The effect should be something like the root shell in (rescue mode) boot menu entry, one that gives me access to a root shell or a less privileged shell, without the need to select "root shell" explicitly.

If possible, I also would like to customize the shell started by, most preferably by specifying a shell script to run so that I can start something other than bash, like vim.

My intention is to create a "fast" boot mode to give me a usable system within seconds (to take notes, for instance) without needing to start GUI. Therefore, it is preferred that the silent option is turned on.

Note: There is a requirement: that no existing feature of the system is removed. That is to say, the gnome desktop (and Unity) should remain intact, and is only disabled when I choose this mode.

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 - Computer Will Not Boot From Disk

Aug 2, 2011

I have a desktop which has 10.04 loaded. There are apparently some errors as some of the menu items didn't load correctly, and after a while, it freezes showing a pink and purple screen with vertical lines. This is not a dual-boot setup. I have a new 10.04 disk which I have tried to boot from to simply over write it with a fresh install but the computer will not boot from the disk.

Hardware :: Computer Not Boot Reliably (Ubuntu And XP Installed)

Feb 18, 2011

I'm having trouble getting this computer to boot up a lot of the time. It's an older AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3200+. Motherboard is (apparently, I'm just copying from the Sysinfo app) AMD K8 Athlon64 Opteron. I have Ubuntu Jaunty and Windows XP installed, but I don't know how relevant that is. When booting, it will simply stop around the stage where it detects the HDD and DVD drive, or right after. The last thing I see is the line with the DVD drive being found. I can't get into the BIOS, it does not make it that far before freezing.

If I keep rebooting, sometimes it will boot normally allowing me to access BIOS settings or make it to GRUB and start up the OS. If I do manage to boot the computer successfully, it is extremely stable. I often go months without a reboot. The problem is it's nice to be able to reboot once in a while without fear of the computer crossing over into the land of the dead. I can't figure out what's wrong, but the problem seems to be very early in the booting stage.

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Create A USB Boot Disk

Apr 21, 2010

I have a Samsung N110 running Windows 7 and I would like to install Ubuntu Netbook remix which I downloaded from [URL] I want to install it on the netbook in lieu of Windows so am not looking for a Live CD/USB option. I have run usb-creator.exe on my XP machine but no matter what I do I can't get the "make startup disk" to un-grey. I have selected the CD which contains the iso I unpacked, and it detects my USB drive (I:) which is 4Gb I had exactly the same problem at work when trying this with the .iso I downloaded so it isn't specific to this machine.

Ubuntu Installation :: Create A Windows 7 Boot Disc From A Pre-installed PC?

May 5, 2011

I have a Lenovo laptop with Windows 7 pre-installed. I would like to dual boot Win 7 and Ubuntu or Linux Mint.

In my old laptop I had an OEM Win XP disc that I bought specifically for dual boot purposes (didn't want the pre-installed vista). This only has a one PC usage though unfortunately.

how to make a windows 7 boot disk? I made a RECOVERY disk already, but I don't think that will work as a boot disk right? Particularly if I completely wipe out or swap out the HDD (which I might do).

fyi: I NEED Win7 for a few special programs for my school. WINE will not work and VirtualBox puts to much strain on my computer.

General :: Create Symlink For Every File Want To Include?

Jul 4, 2010

I have a CMS I have developed, which will run on several sites all hosted in sub directories on my dedicated server. I want to create symlinks for the main files of the CMS, including all config files, functions and admin sections. Then there will be a few files specific to each site.I read some tutorials on creating symlinks, although most are not very good in my opinion.

Do you have to create a symlink for every file I want to include? Or can I just create a symlink to a directory? For example:CMS is located at /www/cms/.Can I make www/domain1/ point to that directory, and if so, will all files include themselves correctly. I think I am a bit confused on how this works.

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 Configuration :: Custom Multiple - Boot Troubleshooting-System?

Aug 16, 2010

I want to build a custom system and I need your opinions. I have an old laptop which I want to configure as a system for troubleshooting purpose, my idea is to have multi-boot system with multiple root file systems, e.g. one root file system has only BIND to work as DNS server, another root file system has only Samba, etc., and I can choose which system to boot into from grub, or a custom menu after booting grub.

I thought of setting multiple partitions and install a full system on each one, but I thought that there might be a better way to do this, I'd like to hear your opinions.

General :: Possible To Create A Symbolic Link That Include Commands For Program?

Is it possible to create a symbolic link that include commands for the program?

For instance, I do the following to start the program:

I would like to create a symbolic like that includes "-somecommand"

Is this possible? or would I need to create a second script that executes that command, and link to that script?

Debian Installation :: Creating Boot Script For Custom Commands In Jessie

May 11, 2015

I didn't change anything; it just stopped working on boot. I've changed permissions according to messages from log files. No good.I now get messages saying "unable to open display ' '." If I set the display (I've done this several ways, the messages say "unable to open display ':0'."

Systemd is taking control of everything basic, with almost no documentation and no configuration tools at all: rationalization by lunatics.You can make a script to run commands on boot using systemd on Jessie by creating two files: the script, in any location a file in /etc/systemd/system that runs that script..My script is called james-boot.service, placed in my /home/james/.bin directory.

#! /bin/sh
# this is run by /etc/systemd/system/james-boot.service
# Enable with sudo systemctl enable james-boot.service
# Check with sudo systemctl status james-boot.service
# If it says the service is loaded, it's OK -- inactive only means it's done running.


This file must have ownership root.root, with (apparently) permissions 664 (rw-rw-r--).After creating, enable with sudo systemctl enable james-boot. service.Check with sudo systemctl status james-boot.service. If it says the service is loaded, it's OK -- "inactive" only means it's done running.

Debian :: Run Check Disk From A Boot Disk

I did a ghost image of drive before I do any more damage and when performing the ghost, ghost stated I need to run fsck. I created the image and noticed that a lot of folders were missing (bin, boot and others).

1. How do I run check disk from an boot disk?

Fedora :: Updating The Installed To Include And Operate With AHCI Mode Drives?

Dec 15, 2010

I have successfully installed a dual boot system with Fedora 14 on drive sdb and WIN7 on drive sda, with Fedora 14 being the major (default) OS. The system is an AM3 with a quad core CPU and all SATA drives. The drives are set to IDE mode, and I am wondering:-

1. What are the benefits of AHCI - will it improve the speed and responsiveness of my system? And

2. If it is worth installing, do I have to do a complete re-install of the OS, or is there some way of updating the installed Fedora to include and operate with AHCI mode drives?

I'm quite happy with the system as it is now, but if there is a way to squeeze extra speed out of it I'm willing to give it a go. And never having been involved with SATA drives and Linux previously, I'm completely ignorant on the subject.
