Ubuntu Installation :: Making USB Drives Bootable Once Downloaded The .iso File

Jun 6, 2010

Running Ubuntu 10.04 currently. But for some reason cant seem to find what im looking for about making USB drives bootable once ive downloaded the .iso file i want. USB-creator-gtk seems to only work with the ubuntu family. ImageWriter only works with .img files? I want to play around with other linux distros from .iso. I tried makebootfat and got some errors. ill post them later if you guys think makebootfat is the way to go but i think im making it to too hard on myself.

Fedora Installation :: F12 - Creating Bootable USB From Downloaded ISO File

Jan 12, 2010

I have downloaded Fedora-12-x86_64-DVD.iso. Now I want to create a bootable USB from the downloaded ISO file. I tried with the latest version of liveusb-creator 3.9.1. I am unable to do so. It took around 3 days to download the iso file and now I cant even use it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Making Bootable Grub 2 CD In Lucid?

May 3, 2010

It seems that the handy grub-mkrescue --overlay=/boot/grub Grub2CD.iso command that works nicely in Karmic is not the right way to create a cd iso in Lucid.

~$ grub-mkrescue --overlay=/boot/grub Grub2CD.iso
Unrecognized option `--overlay=/boot/grub'
Usage: /usr/bin/grub-mkrescue [OPTION] SOURCE...

[Code]....

/usr/bin/grub-mkrescue generates a bootable rescue image with specified source files or directories.

Ubuntu Installation :: Hard Drives Not Bootable - BIOS CMOS?

Jan 20, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 7.10 on my desktop a month ago before I left my apartment for winter break. It worked beautifully for the week I used it, but now the computer won't boot. I'm using the ubuntu live cd right now to type this. I can't install it over my last hdd because apparently both of my hdds aren't bootable. I unplugged the computer for the month I was gone and the BIOS date reset to 2004. I'm not sure if that affected anything, whether I need to replace the CMOS battery? The computer was built in 2004 so I'm thinking the battery might be old. Basically the computer functions on the live cd, just won't boot from either hdd.

Ubuntu :: Making An Existing Install USB Bootable?

Feb 19, 2011

I've searched extensively on Google and here and can't seem to find anything addressing what I'm trying to do. The motherboard of my notebook (Ubuntu 9.10) completely died earlier this week. I pulled the hard drive and got an external case for it. Is it possible to have it boot into my original Ubuntu via USB?

Trying to do so as-is comes up with multiple Grub errors (Invalid Environment block, file not found, etc.) and I've tried addressing these Grub errors separately with no luck, but I have a feeling I'm skipping a basic step somewhere to make a primary drive USB bootable without reformatting.

OpenSUSE :: Making A Bootable ISO From DVD For VirtualBox?

May 23, 2011

I started with a bootable Windows 7 Upgrade DVD. I tested the DVD by booting from DVD in a physical drive. The system put up a "press any key to install from CD/DVD" and it worked. Now, I attempted to make a bootable ISO for VirtualBox... To make the ISO, I used this:

dd if=/dev/sr0 of=windows7.iso bs=2048 conv=sync

which I've read will clone the DVD and its boot ability? Is this correct? When I start VirtualBox, version 4.0.8 r71778, I get the "FATAL: No bootable medium found! System halted." The IDE Primary Master (CD/DVD) is set to see windows7.iso, so I suspect it sees the ISO, only it doesn't appear to be bootable. SATA Port 0 is set to Windows 7.vdi. Am I missing a step somewhere? The system is running openSUSE 11.4.

OpenSUSE Install :: Making An Os Bootable?

Mar 29, 2010

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.

fdisk -ul

Code:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 63 149838254 74919096 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 149838255 156296384 3229065 5 Extended

[Code]....

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?

General :: Making SD Card Bootable?

Aug 24, 2010

Earlier today I created a bootable USB stick by executing a script file that came with the distro for that purpose and experienced no problems. Later on, I tried exactly the same thing but using a SD card via a USB adaptor and it didn't work. Is there some difference in geometry between these two media types that could cause this problem?

General :: Making Bootable Usb Stick For Clonezilla?

May 6, 2010

One of my computers is a netbook with no CD drive, so I need to create a bootable USB stick so I can reload a Clonezilla-made backup image from an external HD on to the netbook.I bought a 4Gb thumb drive and used Parted Magic to create a 200Mb partition on it. I formatted this and the remaining free space both as FAT32 and used Parted Magic to flag the small partition as bootable. Then I loaded the Clonezilla Live files onto this boot partition.Now the thumb drive boots up ok, but goes straight into a Parted Magic menu screen from which there is no way out! It's just the menu screen alone and has no PM functionality. This also happens on other systems where there is no PM installed or in the CD drive. So it must be something PM has done to the thumb drive.

General :: Making A Live CD Bootable From Compact Flash (CF)?

Jun 16, 2011

Making a live CD using tools such as livecd-creator seems like a good solution to create a bootable read-only image to install on Compact Flash. My goal is to prevent failure due to write cycle limits of Compact Flash memory. A secondary goal is to have the live CD available for troubleshooting. However, Usenet postings indicate challenges in making the live CD image on CF bootable. Has anyone succeeded in doing this?

General :: Making A Bootable Partition On A Compact Flash?

May 4, 2011

I have never worked with Linux before but as part of my new job I need to format and install a program on a compact flash card. I have followed our procedure to the T but when i install the card I get a No bootable partition error. Here is what I'm doing. I go into Gnome terminal and change to my directory to "cd dcmsetupdir" (this may not be important but I want to give as much info as I can. Then I type "sudo ./format_cf". once this is complete (no errors detected), I type in "sudo ./install_cf" this seems to install correctly but when I boot up the unit with the card in I get the no bootable partition error.

Ubuntu Installation :: Downloaded File Just Appearing On Desktop?

Sep 29, 2010

Alright, so I followed the step by step instructions from this page: [URL]. When I downloaded the file, the file appeared on my desktop as an unknown file with the name "ubuntu-10.04.1-desktop-i386". I thought this was strange because it didn't have the ".iso" after it. I tried looking for a download location for the file that would give me a .iso file, but whenever I download the file it just appears on my desktop as "ubuntu-10.04.1-desktop-i386". After that, I downloaded Infra Recorder, and followed those instructions. Everything was going fine and when the progress bar hit 100%, Infra Recorder gave me some kind of error.

I can't recall exactly what it said, but it said to check the log file or something like that. I wasn't sure what to do at this point, so I tried installing Ubuntu anyway. I rebooted with the CD and it took me to the burgundy screen and it started to load, but then the installation crashed to an MS DOS screen with some gibberish that I didn't understand. Obviously the CD I wrote didn't have all of the installation files it needed. What should I do? Is there something wrong with the file that I downloaded? My computer is a Dell Vostro 200 and I am running Windows XP.
