Ubuntu Installation :: Create An Installable Image From Existing Installation ?

Nov 17, 2010

I installed ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop and configured a lot(mainly setup git, heroku, rails etc), installed and setup lot of things on it to suit my needs. Now I want to move this setup to another machine and want to avoid all the setup again. Is there a way I can create an installer out of my existing ubuntu installation/partition which I can reuse for other machines?

CentOS 5 :: Create Virtual Machine From Existing Image?

Jan 3, 2011

I had set up 4 virtual machines on centos 5.5 system where I directed the image locations to an external storage. I have lost the image files in the storage, but I have the image files that were copied from the virtual machine image location. I want to put up the same system on the same computer by copying these backup images. However, when I copy the image file to the same exact location and start the corresponding virtual machine I get "no bootable disk" error. When I increase the size of the image using "qemu-img" commands, I can get rid of this error, but get "error reading disk" error. Is there a way to overcome these problems, or is it not possible to restore a virtual machine by copying the machine image file under ..../xen/images?

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.

Software :: Jolicloud Installation Seems To Have Wiped Out Existing Ubuntu Installation?

Dec 10, 2009

I have an old Dell Latitude D600 running Windows XP Pro. A couple of days ago, I installed Ubuntu on it using the Windows installer, so that I could choose between Ubuntu and XP at boot time. That's been working great.Today, I read about Jolicloud and decided to try it. I assumed (bad move!) that it would add itself to my list of choices at boot time, so that I could choose between Ubuntu, XP, and Jolicloud.Well, instead, I can now choose between Jolicloud and XP. Ubuntu has vanished from the boot menu.Is my Ubuntu installation gone? Or is simply a GRUB issue? Or an MBR issue? Is there any way for me to get back to my Ubuntu installation??? I had important work on there that I would like to recover!

Ubuntu Installation :: Make Dvd From Existing Installation?

Oct 24, 2010

I would like to get my system installed with all the software I seem to need to use and get everything all running the way I want it to and then make a dvd which will include all the items in my install. I want to be able to help a friend put his computer on Ubuntu with the same items installed I have but he is not able to get on the internet with anything other than a slow dial up connection. He also has to take his computer to his parents house to allow it to go on line so I would like to make a live dvd for him to use to try my setup and also be able to use the dvd to install it on his own computer.

I am not so good at the command line yet so this might be beyond my newbie abilities right now, but I would like to know if it is possible to do this. I assume if he has a computer where drivers are needed by Ubuntu it might be necessary to go on line to make the system work anyway, but it is worth a try I think. Also I would like this dvd so I can install my existing system on my other machines without going through all that downloading again. As another side issue, how does Ubuntu find drivers for the different computers it installs on? Can I also find the drivers my friend might need and put them in a certain directory where Ubuntu could find them during the install?

Debian Installation :: USB Installation Fails To Find An Installation Iso Image

Aug 15, 2010

I have installed Debian maybe 30 times over the years since about 2003, stable, testing and Sid on two different desktops and two different laptops. The only problem I have ever had is sometimes with a flaky daily build. It is one of my favorite distros.

BUT, I am totally frustrated is trying to install to a USB. I have followed the manual step by step about 6 times in the past two weeks. The result is always the same. The installation fails to find an installation iso image. Yes, I know the iso image and the hd-media vmlinuz and initrd.gz files are supposed to be the same version.

File: debian-testing-i386-netinst.iso from: [url]

Files: vmlinuz and initrd.gz from: [url]

The USB boots to a Language selection screen and proceeds through the Keyboard selection screen with no problems.

The next step which searches for an installation iso image fails.

Skipping that step and trying to load installer components from iso image also fails.

Searching the entire PC for an installation iso image also fails. (I even copied the netinst iso image to the HD root directory.)

Software :: Add Another Drive Image To An Existing VM Using VirtualBox?

Aug 31, 2009

I have an issue with VirtualBox. My current setup is a machine running Fedora 10 with 1 Tb of disk space. I installed VirtualBox and created a fixed size disk image of 50 Gb for a virtual Windows XP64 OS. Now I require more disk space with additional 100 Gb. Is there a way to add another partition to the virtualized OS as if I added a new hard drive to the system?

In other words, I'd like to create another disk image by using additional space from the same physical drive and mount it under Windows XP in VirtualBox.

Software :: Adding Partitions To An Existing Image File?

Jun 15, 2009

I have 2 image files, image 1 which is 16MB, has multiple partitions, where the boot partition has a 2.4 kernel in it, and image 2, which is 32MB, has a single partition with a 2.6 kernel.

I wish to add those extra partitions from image 1, into image 2, either by adding them within the 32MB(which means cutting back on the size of the existing partition), or adding them to the end of the image(which means extending the image beyond 32MB).

The boot partition for both images is ext2, while the rest of the partitions in image 1 is just raw data.

I'm working with these images in Mandriva Linux 2009.

How can I achieve what I want to do? I think it should be with fdisk and/or mkfs but I'm not sure how? I've tried using gparted to regenerate the partitions from a new image file with the following steps:
dd if=/dev/zero of=image.img bs=32M count=1
gparted image.img

Then I created a 30M boot partition. However, I'm not able to create the rest of the partitions as they are smaller than 1MB, which seems to be the min supported. I need precise control of the start/ending sectors of each partition.

Ubuntu Installation :: Use Existing Partitioning When Reinstalling?

Feb 22, 2010

I have a laptop running Ubuntu 8.04 LTS and I need to upgrade to the new Ubuntu, I order to get complete use of my hardware. Usually when I install a new version of Ubuntu, I have the opportunity to use my old partitioning, but now I can only use the entire disk or create a new partition table.

The laptop has other partitions that is a data and a Windows partition as I want to preserve.

How can I install the new Ubuntu on the old Ubuntu partition and preserve the data on other partitions?

What I am trying to accomplish, is have 3 partitions on my hard drive. The first one being Windows 35GB. The second being 15GB Ubuntu. The remaining just being backups. I have set up partitions for this, but I have failed thus far in finding a way to install to the Ubuntu partition I have created. Should I have left that space unallocated? How would I make this work?
