    Re: HOWTO: Install Edgy 6.10 from an .iso file

    I have a problem when i try to install from ISO file:
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [!!] Load installer components from an install ISO
    No kernel modules were found. This probably is due to a mismatch
    between the kernel used by this version of the installer and the
    kernel version available in the archive.
    If you're installing from a mirror, you can work around this problem
    by choosing to install a different version of Debian. The install
    will probably fail to work if you continue without kernel modules.

    Continue the install without loading kernel modules?

    <Go Back> <Yes> <No>
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If I reply No, error continues, I can't complete the install.

    actually I needn't go to step 9, installer found the iso file itself
    (I can browse the /cdrom and it's the iso file)

    I download the vmlinuz, intrid.gz, boot.img.gz from the link of howto
    and I tried several alternate iso files (ubuntu-6.10-alternate-i386.iso, kubuntu-6.10-alternate-i386.iso), all the same result.

    Can anyone help?

    I installed the alternative Xubuntu 6.06 Dapper OS using a CD and it installed fine and working good now.

    Is that a liveCD, when the installation began it said Xubuntu LiveCD or something like that??
    I thought Unix was like others:mac, wind..but its the term for REVOLUTION and 'total' anarchy. That's definately my tone

    Hi John,
    Yes, I renamed the Desktop ISO to *.iso.old, then try ubuntu 6.10 alternative ISO, it failed.
    And then delete this one, try Kubuntu 6.10 alternative iso, the same error...

    And another question, is it posible to put the iso file on NTFS partition?

    Re: HOWTO: Install Edgy 6.10 from an .iso file

    I checkd the /proc/version, the kernel is 2.6.15-23-386 (the vmlinuz downloaded from the link)
    and I think the ISO i downloaded is 2.6.17, kernel mismatch?

    I am having the exact same problem here. Is it a Feisty problem perhaps ? Maybe I should try Edgy.

    Re: HOWTO: Install Edgy 6.10 from an .iso file

    I tried copy the vmlinuz from the ISO file, replace the one downloaded from the link
    boot again, it failed at the stap SCAN ISO.

    Go to terminal 2, i found /dev/loop/0 already there, but it's empty in /cdrom
    i can mount the FAT32 partition which contain the ISO, but i can't mount iso as loop device.

    Doing that here got me execution errors when hardware scan started, then it was stuck in a loop.

    I have downloaded Edgy ISO (alternate), so will try that tonight with the Edgy version of 3 boot/installer files.

    We'll see.

    Hi Charlie,

    start with basics you have downloaded the correct vmlinuz & initrd.gz files from:

    http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dis...ages/hd-media/

    create a new entry in GRUB to make sure it's referencing the correct files:

    ubuntu 6.10 alternative ISO
    vmlinuz (downloaded from above URL)
    initrd.gz (downloaded from above URL)

    I'm sure a NTFS partition should be fine should be fine filesystem for the files.

    check your /boot/grub/device.map to see what drive number grub is assigning to the above NTFS drive?

    All other .iso files on all discs & partitions must be renamed just to be sure.

    From your last post it sounds like the wrong vmlinuz file is being loaded by GRUB.

    come back to us.

    John
