    Yes, that's exactly what I was pointing out above.

    Re: Howto: Install Ubuntu without a CD

    Hi.
    I am kinda new to linux so I don't know what Im doing. When i ran UNetbootin i choose Xubuntu, went down to install on my hd and clicked OK or watever. Everything went well until after I rebooted. An error message said that it cannot find grldr in all drives. BTW Ive copied the latest menu.lst and grldr in the root of my drive. What did i do wrong??

    Alright.... So I chose Ubuntu 8.04 (Nonlive)and it downloaded and installed fine, but when I rebooted to select 'UNetBootin' right after the boot up/logo screen, it flashed something, hit 'ESC' to go to menu, and if you don't in the 3 seconds it allows me, it flashes some more then my compute restarts.

    What's going on?

    Good news, It worked! I got to the installer, but aborted for lack of time, I'll fdo it in the weekend.

    In a nutshell: the eeepc uses unionfs to merge a "factory installation", stored in /dev/sda1, and a "user modified partition", /dev/sda2. Unetbootin installs everything in /dev/sda2, which is not seen by grub by default. What I did was to edit grub on boot, and edit one entry to make it look exactly like the one written by unetbootin in /dev/sda2/ (except for the root, which needs to be the second partition). That's it.

    Okay, I let it sit at the 'Booting UnetBootin' Screen for about 5 minutes, and an error popped up.

    find --set-root /unetbtin/ubnkern

    ERROR 15: FILE NOT FOUND

    Ehh... Any suggestions?

    It looks like the root partition is misspecified, you could try editing the UnetBootin entry in grub, and specify a different root. No idea why this is happening though, maybe you can specify more details (what type of install you are attempting, etc)

    I presume the installation type is Hard Disk, and that you're running from Windows, on an NTFS filesystem. It's probably some issue with GRUB4DOS; it sometimes fails on certain, generally somewhat fragmented or otherwise corrupted NTFS filesystems. Try copying the installed folders/files (C:\unetbtin, C:\ubnldr*) to your other partitions if you have any. Otherwise, if your computer can boot from USB, try USB drive installation mode (it's more reliable).

You could ask people to contribute, you seem to have lots of users
    I actually have a few already, I suppose I'll eventually merge their contents into the FAQ:

    LiveUSB (Ubuntu): http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=811397
    LiveUSB (PCLinuxOS): http://www.pclinuxos.com/index.php?o...&topic=46097.0
    Hard Disk (PCLinuxOS): http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php?topic=40364.0

    As for the others, I'll get around to them eventually

    Re: Howto: Install Ubuntu without a CD

    I'm trying to install Ubunto 8.04 on a new partition (Labeled 'E'), used the NTFS filesystem.

    The only folders at C:\unetbtin was the UNetBootin program, which opened right up into the window. I tried setting it to copy to drive E but that wouldn't allow me to... Probably for the better.

    Got the full script of sorts it shows me while trying to install on GRUB:

    (hd0,0)
    Filesystem type is NTFS
    partition type 0x7
    [linux bzImage, setup=x1e001 size=0x196f78]

    Huh. hd0,0... Shouldn't it be something like (hd0,1), referring to the second partition of the first disk, or am I completely wrong? x]

    Re: Howto: Install Ubuntu without a CD

    This may have been covered already, but searching the thread didn't turn up anything, so here goes...

    I'm attempting to install Debian testing (i386) on my laptop with UNetbootin; I use wireless exclusively on this box, yet the installer doesn't allow for wireless connectivity at the outset. Predictably, DHCP probing fails, and I'm not able to continue.

    Is there any way -- or some other tool -- to get the job done, short of burning a DVD? I already tried downloading the full 4GB iso and using that with UNetbootin, but I'm essentially told to insert the DVD into my optical drive.

    Alternatively, is there a distro readily installable with UNetbootin that will optionally connect to a wireless network _before_ an FTP install?

    Thanks!

    Harry
