Default Using Live Images from USB Media

USB sticks are becoming increasingly prevalent and are a nice way to use live images. You can take a live CD iso image and transform it so that it can be used on a USB stick. To do so, use the livecd-iso-to-disk script:


/usr/bin/livecd-iso-to-disk /path/to/live.iso /dev/sdb1
Replace /dev/sdb1 with the (unmounted) partition where you wish to put the live image. This is not a destructive process; any data you currently have on your USB stick will be preserved.

Can someone tell me how to do this in the iso file, I am not very experienced in changing the scripting.

Thanks,
Will

Default Re: Using Live Images from USB Media

From my under standing,
1) It depends on the Image being used. Weather its bootable from POST.
Weather it has copy protections in the Image...
2)The structure of a Flash Drive and a CD are TOTALLY different.

SOME Discs would work on a flash drive just the same... In this case, you can just copy the data from the disc, directly to the drive.

If I am wrong and you can make a flash drive *Example, boot a windows XP setup disc... Please let me know how, Id love to have it XD

NO MORE RE BURNING!

This might help you with the XP install.

I meant booting off the flash drive as if the flash drive has the XP CD on it, treating the flash drive like the XP CD
But that helps in a way too...
