Ubuntu :: Using Disc Creator To Make Debian Live USB?

Jun 12, 2010

If I use Ubuntu's (10.4) Startup Disc Creator app to create Debian (Lenny) start up USB I just get (when using it on a separate machine) a black screen with the text "boot:" If I press Enter I get a pale blue screen but nothing else, some text if I press the TAB key, but it will do nothing. Is this because I use Ubuntu for a Debian OS or is there some other problem? I've noticed that the disc creator in Ubuntu only really likes Ubuntu related OSs. But since it recognised it when I created it I would have thought it'd work!

Does this mean that live usb creater I have, was only foe Fedora distros?

Ubuntu :: Create Live USB With Persistence Without Usb-creator?

Jun 16, 2011

I've tried using usb-creator to create a persistent live USB of Ubuntu 10.04 32-bit, but the program is useless. There's a bug in the program that greys out the options to enable persistence (see here for bug info). I tried workaround #4 listed in that link, but that didn't work either. When I selected another .iso which I moved to the /tmp directory as stated, the "Make Startup Disk" option then became greyed out as well. It'll make a bootable live USB but I need persistence. Is there a good way to do this without using that program And I tried Unetbootin twice, and it wouldn't boot the live system at all. After seeing the Ubuntu splash screen it just stalled at a black screen forever.

Fedora Installation :: Does Live USB Creator Create A Working System For Windows 7?

May 12, 2010

Before going too far it may be simplest to answer the question "Does Live USB Creator create a working system for Windows 7?" If not then don't bother reading further. I have installed Live USB Creator on a 32-bit Windows 7 computer but when I run it I can't for the life of me get it to recognize any type of drive. I've read and tried the instructions of using the command line with the --force [drive]: but that has no effect Maybe I am misunderstanding this whole program. From what I read about it, this program will create a working Windows system, place it on a USB stick and then run Windows on a different computer. In my application I would like to run it on my work computer which has Windows XP. If this application should work then will I have complete access to all my computer drives and files and the network/internet? I imagine I would need to install all necessary programs so that I could use them in Windows 7 and would I need to install those programs on the USB stick or could they be on a local hard drive?

Debian :: Debian Live - How To Make A Small Distribution

Jul 31, 2009

I have a mini-ITX based system with a 256Mb Flash Drive and 256Mb of RAM.

I aim to use it for the following applications:
Samba Server
Basic Web Server
File based Wiki (perhaps Dokuwiki)
Package Management (to easily add other software as required)

I don't need any X based software or Desktop.

I was hoping to create a Debian Live distribution and run the whole operating system either from a Read Only file system or from RAM.

However (after connecting a standard HDD) and installing basic Debian along with the packages I require (and their dependencies) the filesystem is already over 1Gb in size.

Is there any way this can be reduced drastically in size? Is Debian Live the best way of achieving what I want? Something like Puppy Linux is much smaller in size but I don't want something with such an emphasis on having a Desktop environment which I don't need.

Ubuntu :: Live USB Disc Won't Boot / Why Is So?

Jul 5, 2011

I have downloaded the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS iso from the Ubuntu website and created a Live USB disc with it.

I test this USB disc by booting from it on my desktop machine. It works fine. It even reinstalls Ubuntu on a test partition successfully.

I then attempt to use this Live USB disc to boot up my netbook. I receive the initial boot menu, and I can choose to either 'try with no changes' or 'install'. Either way, Ubuntu fails to boot, and hangs on the purple pre-desktop Ubuntu splash-screen for over half an hour with no change.

So I try re-creating the Live USB disc with both the Universal USB Installer and Unetbootin. The Live USB disc still fails to boot my netbook with exactly the same result. If I press the ESC key on the netbook whilst the screen has hung at this stage, I see the message code...

Ubuntu :: Get A Login Screen With The Live! Disc?

Jun 21, 2010

I have been here awhile, but have not posted much, and am a bit new to things again...I just burned a 10.04 Ubuntu Desktop Edition disc from the main Ubuntu page. However, when I load up the disc (boot from it), I get a login screen instead of a desktop or window asking for input.What am I doing wrong? I know on the older Live! discs you'd typically get a desktop or installation window.

Ubuntu :: Install Through Terminal (live Disc) From Different Iso?

Mar 22, 2011

The problem is as follows: I recently had a power outage whilst my computer was running windows. When I tried to restart the computer I received UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT on the classic blue screen of disobedience. To resolve this I've booted a live ubuntu disc (10.04 LTS), of course when I created an ext4 partition and then tried to install linux I received "error while copying files" around the 65% point of the install which has ultimately told me to create another cd, which since without a working OS I can't do.

With the above filaure in mind I looking into fsck, fsck.ntfs and testdisk both fsck couldn't access the partition and fsck.ntfs suggested I run chkdsk (which I thought fsck was the linux equivalent of).So I figure the next logical step is to try and install linux from the terminal of the cd-based instance of linux I'm running just now from a freshly downloaded iso.

Ubuntu Installation :: Create A Live Disc On The SD Card With Persistence Options?

Jun 18, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Make A Bootable Vista Disc ?

Mar 29, 2010

I am on Ubuntu 9.04. I have a Vista disc which I have slipstreamed some drivers onto. (Basically, you copy them into the "upgrades" or "updates" folder)

I have copied all the files from the Vista disc onto my local Ubuntu drive. I have copied in the new files.

Then, I used Brasero to burn from the local Ubuntu drive to a blank DVD.

So, I checked, and all the files are there.

But when I start up the computer, it does not boot. It boots straight into GRUB, then Ubuntu. Wheras, when I stick in the original Vista disc, it does boot.

How do I get the new disc to boot? It has, surely, exactly the same files as the original....

Debian :: Persistent LMDE With Startup Disk Creator On Pendrive?

Jan 21, 2011

I have a 16 GB Sandisk Cruzer Blade USB drive. My aim is to create a portable LMDE operating system. Both for the challenge and to spread the word amongst my friends. Just today, I've converted another mate with an old Dell with stand alone LM9 LTS. On another thread, I recieved a lot of help trying to use GRUB with no real progress other than finding out that needed someone with a lot more knowledge.

viewtopic.php?f=46&t=64335 bear with me for the long description of what I have done so far. I'm trying to avoid us doing things twice. I have used Startup Disk Creator in LM9 to set up my usb. There is still a problem with persistence. Creator uses casper and syslinux to boot. In setup, it gives the option of persistence up to 4 GB file or discard.

The progress window indicates it creates a persistence file. Everything seems to go smoothly to completion and reboot. The boot-up avoids the usual live dvd menu and goes all the way to the live desktop with install Mint shortcut. Change the keyboard to USA Colemak with CapsLock an additional backspace. Reboot the PC, no remove drive and enter request on shutdown, and back to live desktop. No Persistence. Reboot. I go to users and groups and create my own user desktop. Logout of Mint and into my desktop. Change keyboard settings and go to reboot. It wouldn't let me. Needed a root password. Back to the forums to change that. More research tells me that the program creates a seperate ext2 partition labelled casper-rw to generate persistence. Some sites have called it casper.rw Run GParted. dev/sdd- Sandisk 16GB- has a single FAT32 Partition sdd1. No casper-rw ext2 partition. Amongst other things I created the casper-rw and casper.rw partitions to help it along. No effect. I removed the pendrive, and booted up normally. Re-inserted the pendrive to determine the included files.First level-

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Can't Make Floppy Drive Read Disc Automatically

Oct 24, 2010

Not sure if anyone uses floppy drives anymore much. I know that most machines don't come with them anymore unless you ask for one.One of my machines [Machine # 2] has a floppy and I have never had the occaision to use it under linux [opensuse 11.2 currently]. Until now that is! I have about 30 floppies that I need to transfer the data from. I am able to mount the floppy drive and take data off the currently inserted floppy, but if I want to insert another floppy and remove the data from it, I must unmount and remount the floppy everytime. There is an entry in fstab:

/dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto noauto,user 0 0

and a mount point in media [/media/floppy] Is there something else I need to have in the fstab line for the floppy so that it will read automatically everytime I insert a disk?
