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 just brought a netbook(1005HA) and wanted to try out Ubuntu netbook remix 10.04 but I clean installed it.I like it but there are programs on Windows that I need to use for my HD2. My friend put a windows 7 .iso file on the netbook and I transferred the image to my USB drive to make a bootable USB but it does not boot. install Windows 7 from a USB using Ubuntu correctly?
I have created an iso image from a RHEL5.4 disc using mkisofs. mkisofs -A "Red Hat Linux 5.4" -V "Red Hat Linux 5.4" -v -U -J -R -T -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -o /tmp/RHEL54-x86_64-dvd.iso .
It creates the iso image no problem, however when I go to boot a new server from the disc I get the boot prompt, hit enter, answer the language and keyboard questions and then it throws the following error: "The Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server CD was not found in any of your CDROM drives. Please insert the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server CD and press OK to retry". Perhaps I need to specify in my mkisofs command that its supposed to be iso9660? This is on a RHEV virtual machine.
I am using Oracle Enterprise Linux version 4 update 7. I would like to create and burn iso images via the terminal. Assume I have a folder called movies in directory /root/Desktop.I would like to create a movie.iso image ans burn it using mkisofs and cdrecord.
I have an iso file that I want to mount. It turned out to contain only data so I need to make it into a working iso file using mkisofs. For some reason it was done in a couple of seconds while the file is more then 7Gb. The output is....nothing. I looked inside /media/isodrive and there is nothing there. The original img is suddenly only 363Mb :s.
This is the commandline I used: sven@sven-XPS-L501X:~/Desktop$ sudo mkisofs -o shaun.white.iso /media/isodrive/ [sudo] password for sven: I: -input-charset not specified, using utf-8 (detected in locale settings) 2.69% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:42 2011 5.38% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:23 2011 8.06% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:17 2011 10.76% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:14 2011 13.44% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:12 2011 16.13% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:11 2011 18.82% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:15 2011 21.51% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:14 2011 24.19% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:13 2011 26.88% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:12 2011 29.57% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:11 2011 32.26% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:11 2011 34.94% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:13 2011 37.63% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:12 2011 40.32% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:12 2011 43.01% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:11 2011 45.69% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:11 2011 48.39% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:13 2011 51.07% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:12 2011 53.76% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:12 2011 56.45% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:12 2011 59.14% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:11 2011 61.82% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:11 2011 64.51% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:12 2011 67.20% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:12 2011 69.89% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:12 2011 72.57% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:11 2011 75.26% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:11 2011 77.95% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:12 2011 80.64% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:12 2011 83.32% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:12 2011 86.02% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:11 2011 88.70% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:11 2011 91.39% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:11 2011 94.08% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:12 2011 96.77% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:12 2011 99.45% done, estimate finish Fri Mar 4 19:04:12 2011 Total translation table size: 0 Total rockridge attributes bytes: 0 Total directory bytes: 0 Path table size(bytes): 10 Max brk space used 0 186021 extents written (363 MB)
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.
The thread's title is very eloquent:I have a Windows 7 ISO image and I would like to "burn" it on a bootable USB pen in order to install it on a netbook.Obviously I am on openSUSE, and all I read so far was instructions to burn an opensuse or any linux distros (the "dd" tales)
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 am a new user on opensuse 11.4, i want to make an iso image from my current distro without my personal data,to share it with my Friends,just like "remastersys" program on Ubuntu,how can i do this? but please use a simple Language,because i am a Arabic user and i do not speak English very well.
Recently I succesfully installed conky. I managed to get a lot of things work with more or less effort but I can't make conky to display any image.Images path and permissions had been checked. Imlib2 support too but conky won't display a thing.
I have a problem with burning some disks. I believe the problem to be when the file sizes are large. using suse 11.3 x 64 and updates done. k3b version 2.0.1-1pm 2.7 burned normal dvd yesterday with3.5 Gb + 1.5Gb files. Tried burning to BD-R disk with 11.5 Gb file. I have burned blu ray disks before with my machine but used nero, I would prefer to use k3b as should do this. I get error of mkisofs crashed and following error log
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 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?
i want to setup multiple xen on a remote server in a datacenter, this is first time i am doing it, i want to know when we do it on a local machine it asks for bootable DVD to be inserted, but that can't be done on a remote server, so is there a way we can give it the path of some directory which behaves as a bootable dvd and install the os
I've read all the documentation on installing Debian via CD, USB, or HD.I need to install Debian on a embedded system using only compact flash.This is similar to a HD installation, but I don't have any version of Linux installed to format.Is there someway of creating a bootable CF image from a Windows system?
I have a system built and running in exactly the basic configuration I want, with my recompiled kernel, extra packages, special drivers, everything works, life is good. What I want to do is take this exact setup and create an image I can copy onto a bootable USB stick. Is there a way to essentially take the contents of my hard drive and copy that onto a USB stick and then boot directly from that? The use case behind this is that I am building an embedded system of which I may have hundreds of boxes with identical hardware and software configurations. Instead of hard drives, I am going to use USB sticks for cost efficiency and maintenance. My idea is that when it's time to upgrade, I could just image a hundred new sticks and go out and swap them.
My issue is that a standard LiveCD install gets me maybe 25% of the way to a finished system. I need to recompile the kernel for realtime support with my CPU, add some fidgety drivers for some specific hardware, and install a whole bunch of additional packages. I suppose I could create a makefile(s) to replicate all the manual steps of the buildout but that seems like a lot of unnecessary complexity IF I can just image that running system as it is.
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 would like to build a bootable system image on an attached hard disk on a running CentOS machine.The hard disk would be moved to a headless server, where only SSH access would be available. It seems that all the documented install methods assume that the installation runs on the taget machine. In this case, I would like to create a bootable system image of CentOS on a running host system. The new install mage would generally have a newer version of CentOS than the running host system where the image is created. Also, I would prefer to do a text-based install.
The reason for all this is that I have network access to several remote machines. I can ask disks to be moved between machines, but I have no physical access. In order to do software testing, I would like to have several system disks with different installed CentOS versions. It would be easer if I could build the system disks on one single machine. The hardware an all machines is very nearly identical.
