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.

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.

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Make Bootable USB Drive That ISNT Startup Disk?

Aug 19, 2010

I want to make a live USB drive, perhaps even 1 with its own GRUB and a choice of operating systems..Its 16gb so it will fit..or maybe just install multiple desktop environments so I can switch depending on the resoruces of the computer I am using..Gnome>E17>LXDE.But I want it to be a regular account with a root/administrator password, ect. When I use the Startup disk creator or Unetbootin I find that the results are pretty limited. I might as well be using a live CD, but thats not ideal. Alternately, when I just install normally it doesnt always load, even when I hit F8 and tell it to boot from my USB drive.Knoppix based distros seem to work better than Ubuntu based distros in this regard, but I dont want Knoppix I want Ubuntu/Mint and friends.Finally, I have sometimes been having problems 'mounting' or using 'swapon'. Even when I turn on Swap with Gparted Im still not getting the benefit of the large swap area I have created..is this because of how the operating system uses swap? Is there a live distro that will save files and settings to swap before using up ram, by default? If not, is there a way to change the behavior of Ubuntu Live CD?

Is there a reason why we cant make proper paragraphs? Is this site strapped for bandwidth or something? Is the site just acting funny?

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 :: How To Create Bootable Cd With Disk Cloning Software

I'd like to have a bootable cd which then allows me to clone a hard drive, much like the "Ghost" application. I need to copy Fat32, NTFS, as well as the various Linux formats. I've not created a bootable cd before, so a step-by-step would be rather handy.
