Fedora Installation :: Create Bootable HDD From F11 Live CD?
Oct 2, 2009
This is the first time that I try to install Fedora 11 to my Cd-driver-less notebook. I try to boot from my USB stick it did not work. For me, only feasible solution is to boot from HDD.
However, how do I create bootable HDD from Fedora 11 live CD? I have already downloaded and burnt Fedora-11-i686-Live.iso to a CD. Since I cannot boot from my CD, I need to boot from the HDD. But how?
Also some additional info: I have already formatted my notebook's HDD by hooking it to my PC. So I can only access my notebook's HDD from my PC (winXP installed) As far as I can guess, I need to partition and format my notebook's HDD based on fedora's requirements. (I do not know how?) And copy some boot and installation files to these partitioned disks. (don't know neither)
I am using osx on my macbook wanting to create a bootable ubuntu usb pendrive so that i can install ubuntu on my hp laptop. Is anyone aware of any similar tools for osx such as Unetbootin?, or how i can go about creating a bootable live usb.
How can I create a multi bootable (with menu) cd/dvd that contains a number of live cds? Is there any "easy" way of doing this? Isolinux is the way to go I guess, but is there any tool available for this?
I've successfully created bootable DVDs for several distros over the years. First, I downloaded F13 x86-64 the day of the release, checked the sha256sum against the CHECKSUM file (it passed), and burned a DVD. I see 5 folders and 10 files on it, as expected.I restart, and my PC (AMD Phenom 9600 quad, Gigabyte S Series GA MA69G-S3H motherboard) does not boot from the DVD, but from the hard drive.So I get into the bios, check to make sure that the boot order is correct (it is) and try again. No joy.
Next, I assume I screwed up, had a bad burn, down load and burn again, checking everything. Still won't boot from DVD. Try getting the ISO from torrents, (checking sha256sum all the while), burn my 3rd DVD (using Brasero this time) and - same problem.Now I assume I have a hardware problem, and for grins, put in the F12 ISO DVD. It boots from there just fine.So I don't have a hardware problem, and I seem to have 3 good burns, but it's not recognized as a bootable DVD.
I downloaded fedora14 iso and burned it straight to a cd but on reboot, it booted from my hd. My bios is set to boot from cd first.Next I extracted the iso to a subdirectory and burned that to a cd, creating a boot disk using the img file in the [BOOT] directory. When I rebooted, I got a cursor in the top left corner of the screen and nothing else
Before going too far it may be simplest to answer the question "Does Live USB Creator create a working system for Windows 7?" If not then don't bother reading further. I have installed Live USB Creator on a 32-bit Windows 7 computer but when I run it I can't for the life of me get it to recognize any type of drive. I've read and tried the instructions of using the command line with the --force [drive]: but that has no effect Maybe I am misunderstanding this whole program. From what I read about it, this program will create a working Windows system, place it on a USB stick and then run Windows on a different computer. In my application I would like to run it on my work computer which has Windows XP. If this application should work then will I have complete access to all my computer drives and files and the network/internet? I imagine I would need to install all necessary programs so that I could use them in Windows 7 and would I need to install those programs on the USB stick or could they be on a local hard drive?
I'm having a problem creating an USB bootable pendrive, with Debian Jessie stable. I've downloaded the ISO from the site (I have tried with two versions, netinst and gnome). I tried to create the bootable pendrive with the command dd.
I have a WinXP ISO file and was wondering which is the most noob friendly way to creating a bootable USB with it to re-install XP onto my netbook via Ubuntu 11.04.I haven't found any tutorials out there explaining anything on the lines of this.
I have a iMac G5 and an eeepc 1000 netbook, and I would like install Fedora 12/13 on it. I have downloaded the Fedora-12-DVD.iso, now that .iso is on my Mac, and I would like to create a bootable usb(8GB) on Mac using the iso file. I did find a few instructions on how to do this in Mac OS X [URL] however, they were concerned with .img files. If I am to expand the iso file I can see several .img files in the img folder and a few in other folder, which do I choose? The obvious choice seemed to be install.iso but it was only 166MB so I thought the whole system could not, possibly be fitted into such a file.
And it won't boot, so I checked the drive with gparted on my desktop, and get some errors about invalid block sizes and corrupt partitions. When I try fdisk, it lists an EFI partition as I would expect, and then another partition with the right size, but its listed as type empty. I also get some invalid size errors there. This happens with an older iso I have successfully used in the past. When I run fdisk on the ISO file, I get the same errors as the USB drive. Here's the output [code]
I think my issue is with the message about 2048 vs 512 byte block sizes. I tried setting up partitions on my drive and just copying data to them from the iso. This makes the BIOS recognize the USB disk and it tries to run the bootloader, but fails since the symlinks are messed up copying that way. I've tried a few different boxes (all running sid) and I get the same results on all of them.
I have downloaded a bootable DOS iso CD image that I have burnt to CD and can boot from.I need to add more disk checking utilities to the CD iso image.The DOS disk checking utilities are designed to be run from a floppy disk, but my laptop does not have a floppy drive, so CD-ROM is an alternative, if I can remaster the existing iso image file?Can I mount the DOS iso file and then add other programs to it, and then remaster the updated iso, and make a new CD-ROM to boot from with the added tools?
I tried searching the Internet, but could not find a decent tutorial explaining how to create a bootable Ubuntu Linux (10.04) USB installation that could be run not only on a PC but also on Macs and MacBook Pros. In addition, I tried refit, but ended with "Missing operating system" error.Here is basically the layout of my bootable under PC Ubuntu USB drive (using MBR):Partition 1 (ext3, bootable) - Ubuntu Linux 32 bit, contains also grub2 bootloader.Partition 2 (ext3) - Ubuntu Linux 64 bit.Partition 3 (fat32) - contains data.What would be the best way to enable this drive to boot under Mac OS X? And if refit has to be used, could I simply have one more partition on the USB drive containing it?
I am trying to install Ubuntu Netbook 10.04 on my eee pc. I have a macbook pro with built in SD card reader and a 4 gig sd card. I followed the instructions on the ubuntu netbook download page to create the bootable usb media and it appeared to work, but was not bootable for either the eee pc or the macbook.
I also posted under the apple section of the forums here: [URL]... I also tried using VirtualBox to create a virtual machine that I could install ubuntu directly onto the SD card, but VirtualBox can't work with the built in SD card reader apparently.
Ive installed and have up and perfect a copy of ubuntu, thing is i need windows for recording and xna, i want to make a installer from usb as i havent one cd or dvd i can use for installing and all the quick fixes seem to be either in linux to make a linux usb installer, in windows to make a linux usb installer, or windows to make a windows installer, but i cant seem to find one for linux to make a windows installer, as in i would like a linux program to create a bootable usb of windows of a iso i already have.
I am using Ubuntu 11.04 on my sisters computer which I am borrowing until my laptop gets fixed by Dell *sigh*
The only catch was that I had to remove the virus thats been plaguing this computer any means necessary my plan was to delete the windows 7 partition and put Ubuntu in its place temporarily.
My sister didn't have the Windows 7 DVD that was given to her *sigh again* but she did still have the key labeled on the side of the machine. So my plan than included to download that .iso of Windows 7, and then use setup.exe.
So since i deleted a necessary package my redhat system crashed. Now, when i had initially installed redhat using a friends disk I copied all the files from the CD-ROM on my external hard drive (of course after installing through the CD)
Now I need to re-install linux and I have no idea how to actually use those files to create an actual automatic bootable installation CD?
All of my PCs are set up to either run Ubuntu directly, or are dual boot Ubuntu and some variant of Windows. One of the things I like about this is that in the rare instances that I get a virus I can simply boot into Ubuntu and run ClamAV to remove the virus from there.
I have a friend who recently picked up a nasty virus and we are having a hard time getting his machine to boot at all without all sort of strange behaviors. Under that scenario I can't trust Wubi to work correctly. Soo....
Is it possible for me to create a bootable CD, DVD or USB drive from my machine? I'd like to use my machine because I can update the virus definitions before I create the image and then use that to clean his machine.
I have tried to create a persistent live usb thumb drive using Startup Disk Creator, but have not had any luck. I have tried running Startup Disk Creator from Linux Mint 9 xfce (currently installed on my machine) as well as from live sessions of ubuntu 11.04 Beta1 and xubuntu 11.04 Beta1. When using Startup Disk Creator in Linux Mint, I am able to set the slider to choose how much reserved space I want, but when I reboot, the USB stick does not load, I get an error message about an unknown name in the file. When using the live sessions of ubuntu or xubuntu, the section with the slider to choose how much of the usb stick to devote to the persistence file is greyed out. I get the same result whether I choose the xubuntu iso or the ubuntu iso as the source disc image. I have used the same USB stick and Startup Disk Creator to make persistent live installs before - is there something about 11.04 that does not allow persistence?
Is it possible to create a Live CD install of my existing Ubuntu installation? I mean, to create a Live installation CD of my system as it is now on my pc, with all the programs and utilities that I have installed, so that if the system crashes and is unbootable, I could be able to restore it to the state when I created the Live CD.
I need aufs support/patch for kernel 184.108.40.206 as i i need to create a live linux distro for my organization and linux live scripts (the scripts which I am using for creating live linux distro) require aufs and squashfs support. There is a directive for squashfs in kernel configuration file but nothing for aufs and the patch available at linux-live site seems not to work.
I have an Eee PC with a dead Hdd. I brought it back to life by installing Ubuntu 10.10 on a 16GB SD card. It works 100% but is sluggish.Now I am wondering, from the standpoint of reducing SD card access and writes, would it have been better to create a Live Disc on the SD card with persistence options? What I am thinking is that a Live Disc is designed to run out of RAM, and would thus reduce the activity on the SD card. The only thing this netbook will get used for is the internet. It is a netbook, so the performance is limited, but as far as netbooks go, it is top of the line with dual core and discrete nvidia graphics.
I just downloaded Ubuntu 9.04 while using the 8.10 live cd. I was planning to burn it to a disc, but I forgot all about the live cd issue. So is there anyway I can burn Ubuntu 9.04 without having to download it to a real os. Or can I make a bootable usb with the live cd of 8.10.
