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.

Ubuntu :: Bootable USB Drive Deleted OS On Hard Drive And Replaced It?

Aug 26, 2010

I just booted one of my computers from a usb drive I had installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to, and when I booted it up on that computer, it worked fine. Then, when I powered down the computer and booted it back up to the main hard drive, it booted to the same that my flash drive was running, but my flash drive was not plugged in!! How is this possible? Did it copy itself over my other operating system? There is no trace of it. By the way, that, too, was ubuntu 10.04.

Ubuntu :: Make Hard Drive Bootable Again?

Apr 6, 2010

My karmic ubuntu studio will no longer boot. I believe I may have intermittent hard drive issues. I've backed up all my important files so I'm not extremely worried; however, I would like to try to get my setup bootable once more. I've reinstalled grub, and on trying to boot, I get the grub kernel selection. Regardless of what I choose, the system won't boot. I believe grub is alright, but something else is not. What else could I try to make it boot again? I've mounted the drive, chrooted to it, updated and upgraded, but it still won't boot. I may be doing that wrong, or there may be something else I need to do.

Software :: Copy Os And Files To A New Bootable Hard Drive?

Jan 3, 2009

They filled up the hdd and need more space. I first considered just adding a slave drive, but thought it might be better just to copy all of the content from the old drive to the new drive. Then, make the new drive as the master and the old as a backed up copy slave drive.

CentOS 5 Server :: Easy Install From Usb To Hard Drive?

Jul 8, 2011

By using ISO2USB for CentOS/RedHat I installed with out having to burn A single cd or dvd. Super easy and free from source forge. Link[URL]... Unplug the USB drive and take it to the machine to be installed.Reboot the machine and choose USB boot option in the BIOS boot menu. Choose Hard drive installation method and select /dev/sdb1 as partition that holds ISO images. Use sda drive for installation and choose to review the partitioning layout. In advanced bootloader options, change drive order to "sda sdb". Proceed with the installation.

So easy it should be a tool in every admins box. I hope I saved you some time and headaches.

Fedora :: Creating A Hard Drive Image?

Oct 7, 2009

however, I couldn't find a place in which it would really fit well. I have 2 hard drives, that I want to backup. I've heard of servers and things like that using a hard drive image. Is this similar to a disk image? What are the benefits of using hard drive imaging as opposed to using DVDs? And perhaps most importantly: how would I go about it using Fedora 10 (64 bit)?

Ubuntu :: How To Image A Windows Hard Drive

Apr 30, 2010

I have an unused laptop computer with an WindowsXP installation lying around. I decided to use this computer with Ubuntu for the next few months but it is absolutely crucial to preserve the current WindowsXP state somehow. Is there a safe way to "conserve" that very Windows installation as an image so I can recopy it later on? I'd like to clean out the computer completely to install Ubuntu afterwards. After using Ubuntu I want to install the old WindowsXP again as it was before. Is that even possible? Power on and XP boots as before? I mean driver, accounts, passwords etc? What would you recommend?

General :: Create An Image Of Hard Drive?

Jun 14, 2011

I've performed a clean install of Linux on my system, and would like to create a snapshot of my whole disk so that I can go back to a fresh state immediately.

I used to use DriveImage XML and it was a FANTASTIC program, but unfortunately the boot CD containing it can only be created by having Windows installed. So it might be time to explore a new program that is equally simple and effective as that one.

I'd like your recommendations of imaging programs that are free, and that work off a boot CD/DVD (because the live backup thing generally takes much longer for imaging an entire disk).

One thing I liked about DriveImage XML was that it stored the backup in a fairly readable format, so if one day DriveImage XML were no longer available you wouldn't lose your backed up data. Any such programs?

Also, would these programs work for a drive that contains an encrypted root partition (i.e. enabling the encryption checkbox in the CentOS installation)?

Ubuntu :: Making A Ghost Image Of Hard Drive?

Oct 6, 2010

Is there a software utility out there for Ubuntu that can make a backup of the hard drive my Ubuntu 10.4 is installed on?

I have used Symantec Norton Ghost for Windows before. Is there a similar program for Ubuntu? I would also like to use the backup of the hard drive to reinstall on the same drive after a format.

Also, what would happen to the GRUB loader if I were to copy it back onto the hard drive?

Ubuntu :: Create A Hard Drive Image That Just Load Up?

Jun 23, 2011

I'm overall realitively new to Ubuntu 11.0.4 and I had some questions regarding this operating system. I just wanted to inform everyone, that I'm attempting to make a transition, from a life time Windows user and a current Windows 7 Ultimate user, to being a Ubuntu user.

I am becoming fedup with Windows 7, because i dislike how much system resources, it requires to run, and in addition I'm skeptical about Windows security. I had a lot of bad experiences with the Windows updates as well, so I was kind of alienated, as one can imagine. What I did like about Windows 7, is how easy it was, to configure the user group policies. I was wondering if you were able to do that in Ubuntu latest release.

I also was wondering, if it were possible, to create a hard drive image, that I can just load up, if I ever needed to reformat, like I did in Windows 7.
