I've just purchased HP Mini 5103 with preinstaled SLED, but I want to replace with 11.3. But I have serious problem with booting from USB. Due to problem with BIOS bug/feature, 5103 is unabled to boot using USB with recursive partition (which is created from hybrid openSUSE-11.3-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso either with ImageWriter of dd). When I create bootable USB with syslinux and copying of iso to existing partition, I ended with error "failed to detect CD/DVD or USB drive" (I have tried also both initrdud files, older one failed with "failed to detect USB", newer with "failed to detect CD"). I have also tried to install from full openSUSE-11.3-DVD-i586.iso which I have copied to USB using Unetbootin, but with this bootable USB I ended with "invalid or corrupt kernel image".
I have an image with a autorun.inf file on it and wanted to make it bootable on a simple cd (700Mb). Untill now I tried and failed to make it bootable. The image is on the cd but the cd won't boot.I tried also under windows (with n?r0) and failed again... no way to boot on this cd with the image I created.I need more informations or how toes ^^ to use the "El-Torito" features for the mkisofs utility that I use to create my .iso files
I'm just interested if there does exist any utility for creating bootable flash drives? I mean, if I could make somehow LiveCD with KDE desktop on openSUSE? I used Ubuntu and it had it's own utility with nice GUI, it just needed any bootable .ISO file or bootable CD/DVD and it created LiveCD on USB flash drive. So is there any chance to find something similar?
I work in a computer service center and it'll be very helpful (I think) to have bootable USB Flash dive with operating system to log into dead operating system partitions. Of course I have Windows LiveCD, but it has as much bugs as it's parent big brother.Oh, I forget to post my operating system versio. I'm using openSUSE 11.2 x64 with KDE version 4.3.5
I have an Intel Core2 Duo system that I want to upgrade from Fedora 12 to Fedora 14. I have downloaded the DVD iso for Fedora 14, however, I do not want to burn a DVD for installation, and would like to be able to perform the upgrade from a USB flash drive. Where can I find information that will explain how to make a bootable flash drive that can install Fedora 14?
I'm really chuffed with the first bootable USB stick I created so easily with 10.04 desktop. I've added applications that I want, codecs etc and got the configuration just how I like it. Now I'd like to back up the entire stick, as I use it a lot and the stick will die eventually. I've not used Clonezilla, but I wondered if that would make a copy? It's a 4G stick, with all the remaining space allocated to the casper persistence file.
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 wonder if someone can shade alight on this problem,I have active subscription for rhel4 ES and trying to do a fresh install of rhel5,I was able to download rhel5.3 DVD image from redhat site,burnt it to a DVD but is not booting,i have so far tried on 2 different DVDs but both have failed. I have even downloaded and burnt 1 CD ISO image burnt it still failed.BIOS level is set to cd device first so no problem there,it works!
I have Fedora 12 installed on an external harddrive (USB) and have it configured the way I want. Inside my laptop I'm working on I have a Win 7 installation. My plan is to slowly migrate to Fedora and only use Win 7 when needed, so far so good..
I shrinked the partition on the internal drive holding using Win 7's built in tools and would like to clone my USB installation to the new partition I can now create, I work a lot with Macs in my line of work and there I always use Carbon Copy Cloner to make bootable backups, works like a charm..
As far as I know CCC uses rsync which is available for Linux as well so I guess I could use that? I plan on editting the Win7 bootloader later on to make it possible to boot from the new Fedora partition.
How would I go about it? The internal drive is GUID (or is it GPT?) formatted and loosing the Win 7 installation isn't an option of course.. All I could find were commandlines to backup certain folders or entire drives but I only want to backup my partition onto a different partition..
I got a hard drive with an image of an older redhat OS that i need to do some work with. The hard drive isnt bootable but i need to get into it somehow. I am not even close to an expert on these kinds of things, but i will provide the information that ive got.
Code: Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 63 149838254 74919096 83 Linux /dev/sda2 149838255 156296384 3229065 5 Extended
The simplest way the occurs to me to do this is to virtualize the OS on it. So i installed hypervisor from yast, but (i think) it requires an image of the OS to virtualize it, not some partitions on a hard drive. Is there an easy way around this?
I'm unable to boot into a gparted cd to make modifications to my partition table. I've only noticed it since grub took over the duty of boot manager after installing openSUSE 11.3. Are there any other utilities that I can use either from within openSUSE or boot to, to do the same thing?
I have installed Centos 5.4 and then on top of that i have been installing many softwares over the time ( like pbx system , web console , billing etc.) and now it has come to a quite stable stage. the problem is i have to move this installation to another machine with different config etc. even have to install it on multiple systems. the idea is to create a bootable linux iso of the current machine with all the softwares so i can simply put it in a different machine and make it install and run without much fuss. is creating a linux appliance the only solution ? or is there any way to backup the current machine in an iso format and then install it on another machine? also i would like to make this completely hardware independent.
I created a bootable usb pendrive with ubuntu netbook remix, and now want to download it to an ISO image to be able to use the pendrive for other purposes, but having possibility to create it again from ISO. What is the right application to do it?
Here is what I would like to pursue: I would aim to create a USB drive which a system can boot from if needed. However, this system would not be the generic Lucid 10.04 iso, it would have specific packages that my current system has. Also, it would start up and run with my current system settings if possible.
I did look into Reconstructor, but it doesn't appear that that would have the capibility of changing the default settings to match my current system's settings. Also, it looked like there wasn't a way to upload a list of current packages of my system (I would have to manually select each package, taking quite a while). So is there any way to make a bootable USB matching my current system? Or is reconstructor the closest thing to that kind of customiz-ability?
I want to install SLES11 with my usb key but I couldn't to make it bootable. Because my server are only a cdrom drive, not dvd... I read the following document : SuSE install from USB drive - openSUSE but it doesn't run! So I can mount/umount the usb and linux could see him:
mount /dev/sda /mnt/usb
but the fsck.vfat doesn't run :
fsck.vfat /dev/sda1 open /dev/sda1:No such file or directory
Downloaded openSUSE-11.2-DVD-x86_64.iso Burned on a DVD and used to make an install op a Dell laptop Everything went okay. Now I like to make a install on a ASUS UL20A laptop without an optical drive Placed the iso on a USB stick with dd command The stick can be read by openSUSE 11.2 machine NOT by WIN 7 machine I tried to make the USB stick with Win32DiskImager.exe
I understand that one can easily make a bootable USB from a live CD installer. But instead of burning a DVD, I'd like to make a bootable USB from the oss 11.3 DVD iso file. Note: I just want to make a bootable USB, not to install 11.3 on USB. ( There are many reasons to do that, e.g., USB is much easier to carry, and also reuse later for new versions. ) But it seems there is no instruction to do that.
I need some help to set up a bootable USB stick. I have an USB stick, 3.7 gigs big, on which I want to put the OpenSuse Live CD iso, but somehow I am stuck... I have formatted the stick and I have set the boot flag in KDE partitionmanager. Then I have put the .iso on it, using Unetbootin. When I now try to boot it, I get the message
could not find Kernel boot image: gfxboot
Is maybe the boot flag not set, despite the partitionmanager shows it set? Can I set it also afterwards, after I have installed the .iso on the stick (I tried this already, did not change anything)? Or is there something wrong with the .iso?
I work for a small business that wants a semi-proprietary (branded) os, I've quickly assembled the needed os in susestudio, I now need to alter a lot of images, what's the best way to unpack and repack into a bootable iso?
