Ubuntu Installation :: Possible To Create Own Install Disc?
Mar 13, 2010
Is it possible/easy to create my own install disc based on the install that I have now? I just got finished setting up ubuntu on a new computer and I want to make an install disc that has everything that I have set up ALREADY set up right after installation.
I have Ubuntu 11.04 installed and running on my laptop and was wondering if there was any way to create an install disc/usb or some other way to install Ubuntu in its current state (including all apps, updates, settings etc.) onto my desktop.
I've just gotten a gateway netbook I'd love to throw a copy of ubuntu on. However, before I install I'd like to create a backup factory install disc. The problem is I don't have a DVD drive in my netbook.Is there a DVD writer program for Windows or something similar that would simulate the presence of a DVD drive and allow a backup DVD to be written to it?
I have a question that I can't find anything about online. I have spent the last few months creating and customizing a Kubuntu OS for my company and we want to install it on roughly 45 computers (all different models). Is there a way to save my creation to a cd so it can be installed on another computer?
I know about creating an image of the HDD but what I want to do is create what you would get in the store from Microsoft. A complete OS on a CD, ready to install with all of my configuration changes already setup.
I have an Eee PC with a dead Hdd. I brought it back to life by installing Ubuntu 10.10 on a 16GB SD card. It works 100% but is sluggish.Now I am wondering, from the standpoint of reducing SD card access and writes, would it have been better to create a Live Disc on the SD card with persistence options? What I am thinking is that a Live Disc is designed to run out of RAM, and would thus reduce the activity on the SD card. The only thing this netbook will get used for is the internet. It is a netbook, so the performance is limited, but as far as netbooks go, it is top of the line with dual core and discrete nvidia graphics.
I'm trying to install files and everytime I manage to install from the first disc I succeed. When I get the the second disc I just keep clicking the "OK" button instead of "Cancel" and it keeps neglecting it.
I have just installed 11.3 x64. The installation went fine and worked for the first few hours. I ran the online update tool, and now it cannot find grub unless the installation disc is inserted and I select the "boot from hard disc" option.
I have read about the problem of the root partition being back, but not sure that's it.
sda1 - swap sda2 - / sda3 - /home
There used to be a repair tool in the installation disks. I could not find that in this media. Is that still available?
I have been running ONLY linux (ubuntu) on my computer for years now. However, a friend sucked me back into the world of MMO's (angry fist @ RIFT). So, I decided to pick up a new disc, slap windows 7 on it and now want to dual boot.Basically I had to do some disc juggling to get windows to play nice. So my windows drive is now first, then my Ubuntu drive second.Its been a while so I'm wondering how involved / what would be the steps to get grub2 to chainload into windows7 (in my head I want to say I'm going to boot into the live cd, mount the windows disc and reinstall the loader to the windows drive since its the first disc in the chain?)
I'm a complete novice who installed ubuntu 10.10 this morning, which seemed like it worked great until I noticed that I had to connect to the wireless network manually each time I re-started etc. I did some research into this and found that if you disable the network manager via the terminal section by replacing certain lines with 'deny' instead of accept or something. I did this however the nm was unable to connect anymore! I've been tearing my hair out searching the net, and this forum for a solution but to no avail. Ive since removed network manager while trying one (of many) ways I found online, so need to install it once more. I even tried to install the whole os again from the disc that I did so with initially, but it doesn't work either!Ill be more than happy to connect every time I turn on if it means I can access the net once more!
I DLed 10.10 iso and burned it to cd. When I try to boot with cd, it starts up fine, I get the Ubuntu logo with rolling dots, but after a few mins it freezes (with logo still on screen). I have been running Ubuntu on this comp for years
I want to reinstall lucid for various reasons, so I downloaded the file, burnt it to cd and then booted with the cd in. An ubuntu screen started then went to a black screen with the message:(initramfs) mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on //filesystem.squashfs failed: input/output errorCan not mount /dev/loop0(1cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfsthen no further progress.
I am trying to recover my compaq vista after a BSOD error. I have Ubuntu running and can see both my main hard drive and the factory image. I am trying to create a recovery disc that will allow me to boot back into windows.
I am trying to install debian on a compaq presario 6000. When I try to boot off of the first dvd it just won't do anyting most of the time; one flat line keeps blinking. The first time that I booted it, there was that line that starts with isolinux, but that was only there the first time. now nothing shows up.That first time, I got several error messages: EDD: error 8000 reading sector 1360652 and the same thing 5 times over with different numbers at the end. Do these mean that the disc is corrupt in some way, or that the dvd reader is broken or something else?
I've never tried installing any other operating system on my desktop so I'm not sure if it's a 9.10 bug (probably not), but whenever I choose any of the options after the ubuntu cd has been loaded at startup it goes to a black screen with the underscore at the top, and promptly reboots. At this point in time I can just boot back into windows or get to the same selection screen off of the cd.I've tried burning 3 seperate cd's and at the moment and trying to boot them on my laptop (but not working... hrm). I'm thinking about redownloading the iso in a couple minutes.
I am trying to create an mp3 disc playable in my car mp3 player. Creating a data cd full of mp3's in brasero doesnt seem to work. i.e. It is not playable by the player though it is playable by the computer. How I can do this?
I tried to make a Debian netinst install disc. I tried two different computers with multiple settings. I also tried different brands of CDs. All resulted in corruption. I am using AT&T Broadband (if it matters). I also tried two different CD drives on the future Linux Box. What am I doing wrong?
I am new to Linux and I'm trying to install OpenSuse on my machine: AMD Athlon 64 3200+ / 2.0 GHz ATI Radeon Xpress 200 512.0 MB DDR SDRAM ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Shared video memory (UMA) DVD-RW 16X TSSTcorp CD/DVDW TS-H552B drive Western Digital WD3200AAJB 320GB Hard Drive
I downloaded the ISO for version 11.4-i586 DVD size from DirectLink on opensuse.org. I checked the Windows MD5CHECKSUM and verifyied it. The installation goes fine until it begins installing packages when it prompts: "Insert Disc 1" Which I believe is the Disc that I burned already with the ISO file and is in the DVD-ROM drive that it's asking for. This happens for several files, and prompt me to either retry/skip/abort/cancel If I click Retry I get "media1.media not found" or a similar message. If I click Abort/Skip/Cancel the installation stops and takes me to a text version of the installation which then stops and says that it can not find the Installation Package either.
I have looked for reasons behind this but all I could find was possibly Mounting the DVD-ROM but the installatin runs fine until it begins looking for specific files and says it can't find the files on the Disc, even though it's in the DVD drive.
I have AMD athlon 64 processor, Seagate 160GB SATA Hard Disk, ASUS A8VMX mother board.With this configuration, I can Install FC7 without any error. But all the latest releases after FC7 is not detecting my Hard disk. Is there any solution to solve this problem? Actually I'm searching for a solution when the FC8 released. Now I have all the later releases from FC8 to FC11 DVD except FC9. But none is working .
I would like to combine my Linux partition (/sda3) and /sad1 to give me more disc space. I would also like to combine the two unallocated partitions to install a Windows 7 dual-boot with Ubuntu. How would I do that without totally raping my current Ubuntu install?
this blew my mind today, because i've been using ubuntu for 2 and half years. Brasero 2.28.2 in Karmic does not have an option enable multisessions when burning disc or import a disc which has a multisession.
Seriously, wtf is going on? This is supposed to be Ubuntu's default CD authoring software.
I have an apparently stable installation of Xubuntu that I've hand-tweaked in a few ways. I'd like to be able to reinstall this system verbatim on this machine should a disk crash happen, etc.Is there a "standard" method to create an install and/or total-backup CD that would be an instantiation of the currently-installed-and-modified system?
I'm sorry for this stupid question, but I have nowhere found it.I need to access to my USB disc from text mode (In Fedora LiveCD I see it and i can access /media/New Volume). In F12 runlevel 3 in mc I see it in /dev/disc/by-label as @Newx20Volume. But I don't know what is the correct path.
I had Ubuntu 10.10, upgraded to 11.04 beta, didn't like Unity and tried installing gnome 3 with directions online. Killed my ubuntu install. So I loaded Mint and thought maybe I would like that better. Decided to go back to Ubuntu, but keep having bootloader problems at the end of the install. I can still install Kubuntu or Mint whenever I want, but try to install Ubuntu 10.10 or 11.04 from disc and same bootloader problem.
Is it possible to create a Live CD install of my existing Ubuntu installation? I mean, to create a Live installation CD of my system as it is now on my pc, with all the programs and utilities that I have installed, so that if the system crashes and is unbootable, I could be able to restore it to the state when I created the Live CD.
I just started using ubuntu on my laptop... At the moment is the only operative system available on my machine.Unfortunately I need to install Windows 7 too because I need it for my job.can somebody please help me creating a partition and installing windows?will I be able to access the files stored on my pc from both the operative systems?I recently replace the hard drive and at the beginning I created a bit of mess because I first installed windows 7, than ubuntu on a partition (splitting the hard-drive about 50%) and then, as I was having problems with windows I decided to just keep ubunto, so I reinstalled it on the hole hard drive (I guess)

I am using a bought 10.04 disc that I have used only twice with success on other computers to duel boot with Win7 on a new Toshiba laptop but it goes so far and then just hangs. It has gone as far as 93% and then stops so what can be wrong.
