I try and try and try to make a live CD.. I get "fails" in the process..? This time I managed to get a file in Home, but it's locked, and I've tried everything I found on the Net to unlock it, to enable creating the CD...It seems I am forced to reinstall Ubuntu to clean this mess out. I can't unlock the file..?All I wants is an install CD of the OS how I likes it, with my background pix, my music, and my choice of peripheral softwares, avoiding doing all those downloads and all that tweaking... Is this possible with Ubuntu?..

I have a very usefull Floppy Disk, when I boot from it, it boots into a Windows 95 menu, the initial screen has various options including an option to press shift + F5, when this is done it shows the command prompt A:. I have added various utilities to the floppy myself ie- fdisk, format, chkdisk, efdisk, xcopy, an early Norton Ghost, etc, etc. So I can partition a new hard disk, format it, delete partitions, ghost a disk, etc, etc, very handy. But floppies are becoming obsolete. I have tried burning the contents of this floppy to a CD, but I can't boot from this CD. I have tried various bootable CD programs from the net, including Ultimate Boot CD, but none of them work very well. I would like to make a bootable CD that will simply boot any computer with either a --new blank, unpartitioned, unformatted Hard Disk -- a hard disk with Windows, -- a hard disk with a Linux Distro, etc. When booting from this CD, it will boot to a command prompt, enabling me to start any program that I have added to the CD myself, ie fdisk, format, etc, etc.
Can one make a self booting installation ISO on a flash drive of Fedora 14 as it is, with all my files being in the new install, so I can install this modified operating system on my relatives computers just like I have it on mine, or for if ever the operating system on mine fails, so I can use this flash drive ISO to reinstall the operating system on mine just like I like it, just like it is now? If this can be done, please tell me how you do it, or kindly provide me with a link to a page that has this information.
I currently using Ubuntu 9.10 last update formated with on a ext3 format. I have been a very happy ubuntu user for about 1 year. I have a win7 but I really do not see the point in installing it any more (only when I feel like playing a game).
Any my question: Some time ago I read somewhere that it is possible to make a customised boot "disk/DVD" so the programs etc. is intallled/deleted like you what from the beginning. ex. late week one of my harddrives crasched - and therefore I created a new and had to go find everything again. (codecs - program - visulizations and so on) I more or less use the same basic thing everytime for everything to work probably to my liking, but this takes me about a day (more or less) and this time wasted.
I just downloaded Ubuntu 9.04 while using the 8.10 live cd. I was planning to burn it to a disc, but I forgot all about the live cd issue. So is there anyway I can burn Ubuntu 9.04 without having to download it to a real os. Or can I make a bootable usb with the live cd of 8.10.
I finally got this thing exactly how I want it with all sorts of tools,... I would like to know how to make a live install cd so I can share with others and put on other computers.. Like be a as clear and specific as you can.. should I leave the install file there on the main desktop too?
I got BT's repo's set and ready to install, tho I haven't installed them all just yet cause I not wanna crash the system, so I guess what I am asking has anyone sucecfully done this and what are the specific risks here. I have uploaded crunch and that works fine if I do it manually from the command line. the kernal seems to be update-able as well to BT's Kernal, I am not sure if I should do this or not in fear it might crash the Ubuntu system somehow. I guess what I might do next is install everything but the Kernal and install the executable links to the drop down menu by hand per the menu structure.
What I would ideally want is to have all the functionality of BT in Ubuntu which is pretty close to where I am at. Also, when I am done I want to make a live CD of this system so that I not have to do this ever again as it is very time consuming. What program would be used for that? Would any of my user data transfere? I don't want my user data to be transferred to the live CD just the raw system data etc. Anyone done this and would like to chat via skype? that would be best, but I'll take any help I can get at this point. I am using Ubuntu 9.10 for all this.
I'm trying to make a live CD with UCK, and I've got it all working perfectly except for the proprietary Nvidia drivers. When I try to sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-185 it won't install properly giving me an error saying it won't work because it's chrooted (which it is), so I guess my question is how do I install the proprietary drivers into a chrooted environment so I can put it on a live CD?
I would just test it until I figured it out, but customizing the CD it about an hour long process after all is said and done so I'd rather avoid it.
how to make an ubuntu live USB that's bootable, without having to install qt? I've looked at the ubuntu guides on the matter but they either seem to be out of date, incomplete, or tell you to use unetbootit that requires qt. It seems silly to have to install hundreds of MB of qt on my tiny eeepc just to make a bootable usb.
my system administrator is mean, and i cannot make live cd's, the disk drives don't burn. i have a 10.04 lts ubuntu ISO, and i have tried to make it live usb mode, using macintosh 10.5.8, intel , but you need a password for any and all Sudo commands, so no terminal, and disk utility won't burn to a usb drive. seeing as how the disk drives don't or won't burn, it cannot be helped. i can't download applications for mac, need an administrator password to do so, but i can download windows applications, except my windows machine has no internet, not to mention the most sophisticated thing it can handell is windows 98 second edition. (btw, the windows machine won't burn either, and it doesn't read dvd's, or burned cd-roms, it is a 1995 micron nbku375)
I am using ubuntu 8.04 and i am trying to make iso image cd with running kernel. i know that there is documentation in ubuntu website in"how to make live cd" but the thing is this is my custom kernel. i have my own configuration. so i want this kernel to be work in live cd.
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!
How can I make a usb live cd and save changes to the same usb stick?I have the unetbootin program and plan to install ubuntu on my 4 gig flash drive. What do I need to do to save the changes and preferences and even install a few programs to it. I essentially want it to behave the same way as if I had installed it to my hard drive except with a 4 gig memory limit.
I am running a live (4gb) USB of Fedora_14 with 768mb persistent storage. I am trying to add firmware for broadcom wireless link, as it is not natively supported. When I download tar, extract and copy missing firmware then reboot... all changes are reverted back. How do I make these changes persistent upon reboot.
I've a 8GB USB drive, and I usually carry some Live CD in it, like Ubuntu or other distros, and sometimes I carry things like System Rescue. The problem is, I want to have all those things available to boot, but I don't know how to make it. Therefore I can only carry one thing, and with 8GB of space it's such a waste because I could carry tons of tools and Live Distros.
The way I see it, it must no be that difficult, maybe changing some file and adding a few lines, but I don't have any experience with this whatsoever . if someone can tell me how to do it?
Does anybody know of a program that can make make images of the entire hard drive while it's in use? Like Ghost and Acronis can do? I have a production ubuntu system that I need backups of, however, I can't power it off.

I recently used clonezilla to make a backup image of hdd, before doing factory restore, now the image is of not necessary as I can image the restored computer (Acer Aspire 3620).Is it possible to extract image to blu-ray and make bootable as in live-cd?
