OpenSUSE Install :: Create A Live USB Stick From A Mac?

Oct 3, 2010

I downloaded openSUSE 11.3 to my MacBookPro, whose disk drive has been broken for some time now. I want to install to new msi cr610 laptop that shipped WITHOUT windows. I could order the box with an install disk and printed manual, but if there's any way of creating a bootable USB stick from the download I did to my mac, that would be great.

OpenSUSE Install :: Create A Live USB Stick In A Pendrive With Files Available For Windows?

Nov 14, 2010

I've put openSUSE several times in USB flash drives. I've used the old method with dd ... and the new one with dd_rescue ..., shown in SDB:Live USB stick - openSUSE This way a partition is created (sdb1 or sdc1 or ...), with the Linux file system (ID: 83). One of the problems of this system is that all the data of the pendrive is deleted. Another problem is that sometimes openSUSE doesn't load completely and I cannot use it. And another of the problems is that even if I create another partition (for example to make the Live USB persistent and "remember" the configuration of my computer) and I put some of my photos, songs, films there when I plug the pendrive in a computer running Windows XP I cannot access the data. (What about Vista and 7?)

Other Linux distros can be put in pendrives using the FAT file system (for example W95 FAT32 (LBA), ID: c). This way my personal data or files (photos, documents, ...) can be opened from a computer running Windows XP (and the personal data is not erased when putting the Linux in the pendrive). So I would like to know how to create a Live USB drive with personal files that are avaiable for many Operating Systems, including Windows XP. Perhaps the solution is to put openSUSE in a FAT file system, or put it in Linux file system but create another partition with FAT file system (for this openSUSE should avoid the 1st partition, sdX1, that should be for the personal data, so Windows XP can access it).

OpenSUSE Install :: Live USB Stick Does Not Boot / Fix It?

Feb 8, 2010

I've followed the instructions at Live USB stick - openSUSE for creating a bootable USB stick. I have attempted this with both a 32 bit and 64 bit image. Unfortunately my system will not boot up the stick - it just loads my hard disk as normal.

Background info
1. I have checked the iso images against the checksum and they are ok;
2. I have used the same images to create bootable CDs which work fine;
3. My machine IS capable of booting a USB stick - by copying syslinux onto the stick, the machine does see the stick
4. The order of boot in BIOS is stick first. Again, I have proven this works ok using a utility called USB Boot Tester.

I am unsure what to try next. I recall reading on this forum there was a problem booting from USB stick if the computer also had a CD drive. That was in an early version of LiveCD. Could the problem still be extant? I can't find the actual thread unfortunately otherwise I would link to it.

OpenSUSE Install :: Live USB Stick Does Not Record Changes

Apr 1, 2010

I created a live USB stick following the instructions at [URL] installing openSUSE-11.2-KDE4-LiveCD-x86_64-iso and booting a Motion LE1700. openSUSE works great but any file I create is lost after I reboot. I created the second partition with the script listed the instructions. Is there any anything else to do to make the live system mount the second partition?

OpenSUSE Install :: Live Usb Stick Doesn't Work - I/O Errors

Apr 21, 2011

I've been trying to figure out how to run/install openSUSE from a usb stick for several days. I downloaded the 11.4 .iso from distrowatch & used the following command in Linux Mint to put it on the usb stick.

Code:
sudo dd if=openSUSE-11.4-KDE-LiveCD-x86_64.iso of=/dev/sdc

It gets to the loading screen and get stuck. It has a small bar going across, that never finishes. I've hit escape to try and get some info, but don't know what I'm looking for and it's too much to write down. I did notice there were several I/O errors. I did check the usb for defects and it returned ok, and the md5sum was correct.

I've also tried safe settings which takes me to a blueish/black screen and stays there. No ACPI starts to load and then drops to a shell.

how to get this accomplished? I've installed many Linux OS's and I've never had this much trouble.

ps. I"ve read the "please read" pre installation page on here, and things just don't make a whole lot of sense to me.

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Install - Live CD From Usb Stick

Jul 11, 2011

I have done a big big mistake (I could beat myself up for that) with my netbook and now I am sitting here, not getting openSUSE installed on it.

I wanted to try another netbook linux and installed (more by accident than intentionally) Easy Peasy Linux. This system is not bad, but cannot work with the wireless adapter in my netbook. However, I then wanted to install openSUSE 11.4 again, which ran fine on the netbook. But the install always gets stuck in different stages and I donīt know why.

Sometimes a failure message comes up: "filesystem is read only, rebooting in 120 seconds", but I am not really sure if this is for the harddrive or the usb stick. In other occasions, the bootprocess until install gets stuck at "starting KDM". Nothing happens then... thats it.

I already have reformatted the usb stick and copied the openSUSE Live CD via Imagewriter on it again... no success.

So now I am really confused, because I donīt know if there is something wrong with the harddrive? Or is it the stick itself? How can I find this out?

If it is the harddrive, how can I at least refomat it? Remember: no CD or DVD drive, just USB stick...

How can I find out if the image on the stick is ok? I already tested the install media and it said: "checksum ok"

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Create USB Stick / Resolve This?

Feb 11, 2010

I'm new here, an Ubuntu user who would try Opensuse for a while. That is if I'm able to launch the thing !
I'd like to create a Live Usb Stick to test it and install it if I like it but it doesn't seem to work.

I tried the website method, using "Win32DiskImager.exe" but the program doesn't work for me (WinXP) : it looks like it's writing but when the "Done" message is prompted, I'm unable to access the usb key, Windows says it's not formatted. That doesn't look right...
I tried with LinuxLive Usb Creator but the boot process fails and Universal-Usb-Installer doesn't offer an Opensuse option.

Is there another way to install the distribution on an USB stick ? I could still try through Ubuntu but that would be quite surrealistic.

OpenSUSE Install :: Failed To Create A Live USB In Win 7

Mar 18, 2010

I tried most of the methods using a graphical interface to create a live USB through a 64-bit dvd image to install opensuse 11.2 including unetbootin, Win32DiskImager, Mandriva's Seed... Everything failed, so I'm left with the option to do it through the command prompt. There is a dd tool for Windows, and I got the command line instructions in the Live USB page. One thing I don't understand is that how is insert my path of the iso image for this command in Windows: # dd if=/path/to/iso/openSUSE-11.2-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=4M;sync; Should I replace the bit # dd if=/path/to/iso/openSUSE-11.2-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso, with like something like # dd if= CDownloadsOpensuse11.2x-64.iso?

OpenSUSE Install :: Create A Live Multi-distro Usb?

Oct 12, 2010

I'd like to put both the 32-bit and 64-bit OSS 11.3 onto a 2GB usb stick from their respective Live CD ISOs. I tried to make a partitions on the usb ( 1GB ) each, and then dd each ISO to separate partitions, make 1 of the partition bootable. But that doesn't work, even from the bootable partition. Any suggestions how to achieve that goal? Ideally there would be a main boot loader, which then provides option to boot each of the distro.

I would like to create a Suse 11.3 Live CD with Acronis on it so that I can boot from any computer, use Acronis, and still have some Linux commands available to me. Is this possible? I could part with OpenOffice.org to provide room for Acronis.

Ubuntu :: Install Messed Up By Ati AGAIN Recovering From A Live USB Stick?

May 20, 2011

So i was trying to run an application the other day and it required newer graphics drivers, so i reluctantly updated them as i have had endless troubles with them before. Surprise surprise on rebooting the system i was confronted with a black screen.

So i decided to go into recovery mode to try to un-install the drivers and i think that was successful, but i can't be sure since when i reboot the system now even in recovery mode i get a blank screen.

So i am wondering how i can fix the system from booting into a live USB stick as it is the only way i can really gain access to the system. I think to fix it i will either need to some how remove and re-install the working ati drivers or do a system restore, but i have no idea if the latter is possible or not, and I am not too sure on how to install the drivers to a file system from a live distro.

Ubuntu :: Create A Bootable Install Of 10.04 Which Boots Off An 8GB Kingston DataTraveler USB Stick?

May 5, 2011

I'm trying to create a bootable install of Ubuntu 10.04 which boots off an 8GB Kingston DataTraveler USB stick. I used the latest Universal USB installer from pendrivelinux to install it, and I used the I386 ISO of Ubuntu 10.04. It successfully installed to the USB stick and I enabled 4GB of persistence. However, when I put it into any machine it gives me the following message:

Mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on //filesystem.squashfs failed: No such device (initramfs) Can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfs I tried redoing it, and redoing it without persistence enabled, but still no luck.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Live CD And Live Stick Not Working

Apr 28, 2011

Live CD: I dowloaded the ISO, burned it to CD, booted from this CD. It starts to load and I can see the purple background with the loading icons. Everything seems normal. But instead of ending up with the login screen, it ends up with a screen that says 'Please remove all bootup media and hit ENTER' or something like this. So I hit enter and then it shuts off my computer. That's it.

Live Stick: So I tried another option and created a stick with 'usb-creator.exe' that is on the CD. Then I start from that stick, but all I end up is a line of 'Syslinux bla bla copyright 20xx-2011'. That's it. Then it does nothing anymore. The cursor is blinking, but no prompt or whatsoever and keyboard input doesn't do anything.

Now something weird: When I insert Live CD and Live Stick at the same time and then boot my computer, then it boots into Ubuntu. Obviously it loads the first parts from CD and then the rest from stick. Because when I'm then in Ubuntu and try to format the stick, it says it can't do so, because there's system files from that stick in use.

Ubuntu :: Create My Own Live Disk / Install That?

Jul 2, 2010

I'm running a Lucid Wubi system and I just got everything exactly the way I like it. My brother was having a hard time with Windows and I recommended Linux. Well being the inpatient person he is, he wasn't impressed with it "right out the box". But he's seen my setup and still wants to give it a shot. So I was curious if there was a way to create a Live CD from the way I have it already instead of downloading the "start-up" version from the site? I think they call them distros but I'm not for sure. This would be great I think to help introduce my brother and others to this awesome OS, and plus when I mess with the wrong things(which I have, and will again) I could re-install it from where I was instead of having to redo everything.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 KDE Freeze On USB Stick?

Jan 31, 2011

I have read lots about KDE (4.xx) freeze on OpenSuse 11.3 Live. Well I have experienced it first hand.

My hard disk which had Opensuse 11.3 (reiserfs) crashed. It was a dual boot and a windows upgrade wiped out the partition information. I am still trying to resuce with dd-rescue.

Now in the meanwhile I burnt a opensuse 11.3 Live CD and worked on it for a week. I was bit annoyed that every too often the cd drive spins....so I decided to burn a usb stick. Its a 2 gb USB stick. I followed the instructions to the toto to burn the ISO image. Then my nightmares started

The USB STICK boot was smooth. However when the desktop starts ...the trouble begins. I clicked on firefox...after about 10 seconds I experienced the dreaded freeze first. I had to reboot the system.

Everything was fine till i started Firefox, the system froze. Now reboot -> start -> firefox --> freeze cycle continued. I got fed up.

I then downloaded google-chrome. Installed it (after updating a couple of drivers) . It worked flawless. I loaded it with graphics...still no problem. Then started firefox .. the system froze. I even disabled all KDE windows animation, set only one window pane, still there is a freeze.

I took my USB stick off and rebooted the system though live CD. I started firefox on boot, NO problems. Opened many many tabs. Still no problem.

So there is a SURE problem with USB + Firefox. I SUSPECT IT MORE DUE TO NETWORK ISSUES THAN GUI (DRIVER) ISSUE. If it were to be GUI driver issue firefox should have fozen both with CD and USB.

Mine is pentium duo processor machine with 2gb RAM (DDR2). Intel chipset for video. I checked the MD5 of downloaded ISO its matched the one on the site. So the iso image is flawless.

All the threads in this regard suspect the video drivers, but I ALSO suspect the network. May be there is a wait() state in the network driver that is holding the process for way too long causing the freeze. Somebody needs to check this up.

The freeze is on USB stick boot only and not on CD boot.

OpenSUSE Install :: Upgrading 11.1 Without A Cd Or Usb Stick?

Apr 30, 2011

I'm currently having troubles upgrading my 11.1 system. My SuSE running 11.3 had crashed, and when I tried to reinstall it I couldn't find the cd. I only have a 11.1 distro cd, in which I had installed. I want to upgrade to 11.2 since that should be the easiest, from then I think i can figure out how to upgrade from 11.4. I currently do not have any cd's or a usb flash drive to mount the iso image onto. I've read through the wiki looking for a solution, but even with updating my repos i still haven't found the answer.

how to upgrade from 11.1 to 11.2 without a cd or usb stick.

Could someone recommend a simple (non-graphical) distribution that fits on a USB stick, boots without HD access, providing the functions of Super Grub Disk. I find the instructions for creating a Super Grub USB confusing. Even the CD version has cryptic operating instructions. Yes I know there is always Knoppix, but it is graphical (slow loading) and lacks the grub manipulating functions.
