I have downloaded a bootable DOS iso CD image that I have burnt to CD and can boot from.I need to add more disk checking utilities to the CD iso image.The DOS disk checking utilities are designed to be run from a floppy disk, but my laptop does not have a floppy drive, so CD-ROM is an alternative, if I can remaster the existing iso image file?Can I mount the DOS iso file and then add other programs to it, and then remaster the updated iso, and make a new CD-ROM to boot from with the added tools?
I created a bootable usb pendrive with ubuntu netbook remix, and now want to download it to an ISO image to be able to use the pendrive for other purposes, but having possibility to create it again from ISO. What is the right application to do it?
All of my PCs are set up to either run Ubuntu directly, or are dual boot Ubuntu and some variant of Windows. One of the things I like about this is that in the rare instances that I get a virus I can simply boot into Ubuntu and run ClamAV to remove the virus from there.
I have a friend who recently picked up a nasty virus and we are having a hard time getting his machine to boot at all without all sort of strange behaviors. Under that scenario I can't trust Wubi to work correctly. Soo....
Is it possible for me to create a bootable CD, DVD or USB drive from my machine? I'd like to use my machine because I can update the virus definitions before I create the image and then use that to clean his machine.
My system was a dual-boot with Windows Vista and Fedora 9. During the installation of some updates of Windows vista I powered off the system and since then my Windows Vista gives blue death screen error. I think it as some MBR corruption issue for which I have searched these corrective steps:
Step 1:1. Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer. 2. Press a key when you are prompted. 3. Select a language, a time, a currency, and a keyboard or another input method, and then click Next. 4. Click Repair your computer. 5. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next. 6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Startup Repair. 7. Restart the computer.
Step 2: use bootrec.exe to fix MRB and BOOT 1. Put the Windows Server 2008 installation disc in the disc drive(you can use Windows Vista installation disc too), and then start the computer. 2. Press a key when you are prompted. 3. Select a language, a time, a currency, and a keyboard or another input method, and then click Next. 4. Click Repair your computer, and then click Next. 5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt. 6. Type bootrec /fixmbr, and then press ENTER. 7. Type bootrec /fixboot, and then press Enter. 8. Restart the computer.
My DVD-ROM does not detect any media I insert into it. So I have created a Windows Vista's USB installation media.My Problem: At present Fedora boots normally. But when I will fix MBR, what will happen to fedora ? If it removes the grub, I will not be able to boot in fedora. Please suggest something. I think there must be a way to install grub through USB, but I don't know the 'howtos' of that.
I lose my W7 DVD a couple of times and im tired of making DVDs when i can just create a Bootable USB but the only thing wrong is that i know of ...you can only create Ubuntu USB in Ubuntu.... In Windows you can create a Windows USB with progrmas and UBuntu as well... SO since windows can make multiple USB bootable... Does Ubuntu have a Program that will allow me to Create a Bootable Windows 7 USB?
I've read all the documentation on installing Debian via CD, USB, or HD.I need to install Debian on a embedded system using only compact flash.This is similar to a HD installation, but I don't have any version of Linux installed to format.Is there someway of creating a bootable CF image from a Windows system?
Ive installed and have up and perfect a copy of ubuntu, thing is i need windows for recording and xna, i want to make a installer from usb as i havent one cd or dvd i can use for installing and all the quick fixes seem to be either in linux to make a linux usb installer, in windows to make a linux usb installer, or windows to make a windows installer, but i cant seem to find one for linux to make a windows installer, as in i would like a linux program to create a bootable usb of windows of a iso i already have.
I am using Ubuntu 11.04 on my sisters computer which I am borrowing until my laptop gets fixed by Dell *sigh*
The only catch was that I had to remove the virus thats been plaguing this computer any means necessary my plan was to delete the windows 7 partition and put Ubuntu in its place temporarily.
My sister didn't have the Windows 7 DVD that was given to her *sigh again* but she did still have the key labeled on the side of the machine. So my plan than included to download that .iso of Windows 7, and then use setup.exe.
I'm using Ubuntu 9.1 to try to make a disk image of my Windows operating system that I'd like to save to an external hard drive. Currently, I'm just running Ubuntu off the cd. Having checked the "Ubuntu Software Centre" on my computer, I notice that it has Brasero installed, and I was wondering:
1) First off, where can I find it? (Is there a search function in Ubuntu like Windows?)
2) Is Brasero a good choice to create a disk image?
I have a single hard-drive on a spare computer and I decided to try out Ubuntu on recommendation from a friend. I really like it now but at first I just dual-booted it, and now I want Vista gone. I know it's unnecessary to have just one OS but my hard-drive isn't particularly big and I'd prefer to have Ubuntu by itself. Can anyone tell me how to eliminate vista and leave Ubuntu as my sole operating system (I've all my files from computer on another computer so I don't have to worry about losing anything).
i have recently started my masters degree program and i have to install fedora 11 for one of my courses. The problem is when i try to install fedora 11 on my laptop, it wipes out my windows vista installation. I want to keep vista. I have a sony vaio laptop model VGN-FW340D. 4GB RAM and 400 GB HD. i first shrink my hard drive to free up around 100 GB. Then i run fedora 11 DVD and let it make the partitions on my free space.. I have tried everything.. I chose use free space the first time, but i didnt work, it wiped out my vista, next time i chose custom layout and defined boot, root and swap partitions , but again it wiped out my vista.. I have read many guides to dual boot vista and fedora and have carried them out step by step, but nothing works.... Also i dont have vista installation DVD, i just have the recovery CDs, so everytime it wipes out my vista, i have to do system recovery, ive been trying for a week now, and its driving me crazy, i asked a friend of mine to help me out, he has dual boot system, and he tried it and it did the same thing, wiped out my vista... i just have one drive C: with two partitions, one small partitions which contains recovery files, and the rest of the partition has vista.......
I wonder if someone can shade alight on this problem,I have active subscription for rhel4 ES and trying to do a fresh install of rhel5,I was able to download rhel5.3 DVD image from redhat site,burnt it to a DVD but is not booting,i have so far tried on 2 different DVDs but both have failed. I have even downloaded and burnt 1 CD ISO image burnt it still failed.BIOS level is set to cd device first so no problem there,it works!
I have an image with a autorun.inf file on it and wanted to make it bootable on a simple cd (700Mb). Untill now I tried and failed to make it bootable. The image is on the cd but the cd won't boot.I tried also under windows (with n?r0) and failed again... no way to boot on this cd with the image I created.I need more informations or how toes ^^ to use the "El-Torito" features for the mkisofs utility that I use to create my .iso files
I have installed Centos 5.4 and then on top of that i have been installing many softwares over the time ( like pbx system , web console , billing etc.) and now it has come to a quite stable stage. the problem is i have to move this installation to another machine with different config etc. even have to install it on multiple systems. the idea is to create a bootable linux iso of the current machine with all the softwares so i can simply put it in a different machine and make it install and run without much fuss. is creating a linux appliance the only solution ? or is there any way to backup the current machine in an iso format and then install it on another machine? also i would like to make this completely hardware independent.
I just brought a netbook(1005HA) and wanted to try out Ubuntu netbook remix 10.04 but I clean installed it.I like it but there are programs on Windows that I need to use for my HD2. My friend put a windows 7 .iso file on the netbook and I transferred the image to my USB drive to make a bootable USB but it does not boot. install Windows 7 from a USB using Ubuntu correctly?
I have a system built and running in exactly the basic configuration I want, with my recompiled kernel, extra packages, special drivers, everything works, life is good. What I want to do is take this exact setup and create an image I can copy onto a bootable USB stick. Is there a way to essentially take the contents of my hard drive and copy that onto a USB stick and then boot directly from that? The use case behind this is that I am building an embedded system of which I may have hundreds of boxes with identical hardware and software configurations. Instead of hard drives, I am going to use USB sticks for cost efficiency and maintenance. My idea is that when it's time to upgrade, I could just image a hundred new sticks and go out and swap them.
My issue is that a standard LiveCD install gets me maybe 25% of the way to a finished system. I need to recompile the kernel for realtime support with my CPU, add some fidgety drivers for some specific hardware, and install a whole bunch of additional packages. I suppose I could create a makefile(s) to replicate all the manual steps of the buildout but that seems like a lot of unnecessary complexity IF I can just image that running system as it is.
I am running ubuntu 9.10 on my pc, trying to update the bios on a thinkpad a31. I'm trying to create a bootable iso disk from the downloaded file from ibm (spsuiv69.exe) it is currently sitting on my desktop.
To be clear - I am having trouble making the .exe file an iso. I read this is the best way to update bios on a linux machine, if there are better ideas - whatever works.
