Ubuntu Installation :: Create A Bootable System Image With ClamAV Or Similar Installed?

Jul 28, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Creating A Bootable USB Image Based On A Running System (NOT LiveCD)

Sep 2, 2010

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.

Dec 9, 2010

As I understand it creating an image of a Linux system makes an exact copy of the OS and any user files/configurations/programs etc. What i would love to do is create an image of my work PC and install it at home on my desktop. Can someone briefly explain the process of creating and installing images of Linux systems?

CentOS 5 :: Build A Bootable System Image On An Attached Hard Disk On A Running Machine?

Feb 27, 2011

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.

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming.

The following information may resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies.

Debian Installation :: Can't Create Bootable USB

May 15, 2015

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.

Code: Select alldd if=debian-etcetcetc.iso of=/dev/sdb

I put two pendrives that i've dd'ed them on the usb ports, and then typed fdisk -l, it returned this:

Code: Select allDevice Boot Start End Sectors Size Id Type
/dev/sdb1 * 64 2978975 2978912 1,4G 17 Hidden HPFS/NTFS
Disco /dev/sdc: 7,3 GiB, 7784628224 bytes, 15204352 setores
Unidades: setor de 1 * 512 = 512 bytes

[code]...

However, i tried to boot this two pendrives in three PCs and it was not recognized by anyone as bootable system.

Fedora Installation :: Can't Create Bootable DVD For F13

May 27, 2010

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.

General :: Create A Bootable Ubuntu (10.04) USB Installation For Macintosh?

Jun 3, 2010

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?

Ubuntu Installation :: Create A Bootable SD Card For Eee Pc From Macbook Pro?

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Create A Bootable Partition Which Contains Windows 7?

Jul 28, 2011

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.

Debian Installation :: Create Bootable USB Failing

Feb 11, 2016

Every time I try to create a bootable USB on my sid boxes, it comes out corrupt. I'm trying to use a multi-arch netinst iso so I can back up my tablet. Anyway, I use

[code]
# cp debian-8.3.0-amd64-i386-netinst.iso /dev/sdf
[code]

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]

daniel@frakenstein:~/Downloads$ sudo fdisk -l ./debian-8.3.0-amd64-i386-netinst.iso
Disk ./debian-8.3.0-amd64-i386-netinst.iso: 556 MiB, 583008256 bytes, 1138688 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: dos

[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.

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)
