im trying to get the UbuntuStudio AMD64, which is only available as an alternate install cd, working with Unetbootin. no joy.
so far ive managed to get a tiny bit further than everbody else but nowhere near close to finishing. FYI ive not got a dvd burner so cant just burn a copy. would be nice. but a technical challenge is always good fun
from the installer, while choosing language, i Ctrl-Alt-F2 to a busybox terminal and
there are times that this can be temperamental, giving me device not found and illegal string blah blah. but when it works, this gets me past the "detect and mount cdrom" section but fails on me at the installing base system, due to something about not having the genuine install cd inserted.
mount -t vfat /dev/sdc1 /cdrom
there is obviously a flag or some kind which tests the installation media for something. it would just be nice if one of the DEVs could tell us how to disable it or workaround.
