Install Ubuntu from slave hard drive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 8, 2012
I have been reading around for a few hours now and I'm kinda coming up short.
Here's my problem.. A friend asked me to help him with his PC, it appears kinda old, an HP Pavillion 4550Z using windows 98. It was trashed I tried everything and nothing worked so the only option was to wipe it out and start over, except I do not have an operating system.
I have Ubuntu on a flash drive but his BIOS does not appear to allow booting from USB.
I was hoping for a way to put the Ubuntu install onto a slave hard drive and boot from it to install onto the master drive. (slave drive would act like the CD)
Can anyone point me in a direction to do that? I am using windows XP.
Thanks in advance.

Debian lxde to external usb hard drive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 29, 2008
i have an eeepc 900 with xp on it and wanted to use linux on it as well. so i thought to install a debian + lxde to my eternal 2gb usb hard drive. i have tried with debian mini cd's,but none of them recognize the ethernet, so the install doesn't work. i want this debian only with lxde and no apps except the basic ones which come with lxde. i also want to put the boot loader, probably grub, only on the external hard drive, so it doesn't affect my mbr for my main internal hard drive.
also i have found some directions to make the external install live, so it can be brought around.
reassuming, i need to put debian+lxde(no gnome or kde) on a 2gb external hard drive, along with bootloader, and no extra applications, and needs to have a separate bootloader and work as a live distro
Installing Debian on a (fat32) USB hard drive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 25, 2004
I'm trying to install Debian on my new USB hard drive. The trouble is that it's also a nice mp3/wav/ogg player, so I don't want to just reformat it.
Now it's in FAT32 (linux vfat?). I think there would be problems running Linux from it because of the lack of symbolic links, right? Also, I don't want to remove any current directories and files, only add the ones needed by Linux.
I read about how it's possible to put an entire ext3 filesystem onto a vfat file; would that be a good way to do this?
I don't mind using a bootable floppy or miniCD; many older BIOSes don't boot from USB, and I wnat it to still be compatible with them. It would be even nicer if I could boot with or without a floppy/cd, though.
I also want it to auto-detect hardware at startup, such as which video module to use. Would just copying scripts from Knoppix work?
How would I go about setting up Debian like this? I couldn't use the standard installer, could I?
If Debian is poorly suited to this, would
Linux server does not boot after adding second hard drive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 26, 2007
I had a working Linux server acting as a network attached storage. It was running low on space so I added an additional disk. As a Linux newbie I tried exteneding the current partition with the new disk using the Logical Volume manager. In seeing that maybe that would not be a good idea to extend the current partition, I decided to create a new volume group and assign the new hard drive to the new volume group. I think the major mistake I made was mounting the new hard drive to itself using "/:" as a mount point and telling it to 'automount'. When I rebooted the server that's when I noticed the mistake.
When I reboot now it loads up a GNU GRUB version 0.97 prompt instead of booting into Fedora 6.
I tried a recovery install and upgrade installs but I keep getting the following error "Error mounting device VolGroup01/xxx as /: No Such File or directory. Devices in /etc/fstab should be specified by label, not by device name.
Press OK to exit the installer."

Debian Cannot Mount Second Internal Hard Drive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 11, 2007
Just installed Debian 4.0 (64 bit) on my AMD 64-bit system. I have a second HD which is a SATA drive (my boot drive is IDE). Debian detects, but cannot mount the 2d HD. Error message:
libhal-storage.c 1401 : info: called libhal_free_dbus_error but dbuserror was not set.
process 4581: applications must not close shared connections - see dbus_connection_close() docs. this is a bug in the application.
error: device /dev/sda1 is not removable
error: could not execute pmount
Can anything be done?
I, of course, backed-up all the data from my XP drive on to the unmountable drive.
It shows the drive icon as a CD-ROM drive, if that is any help.
And, just for fun, and because I am too tired right now to do any research, I have two DVD-RW drives but it only shows one icon, although it reads both drives. What do I have to do to get a separate icon for each DVD drive?
Looking for way to install Fedora.iso from hard drive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 25, 2008
Burner is broken. Have 15 gig partition-sda1-ext3 set up elsewhere and Fedora.iso in Ubuntu partition-sda2. Building things from source in Ubuntu is just a real mess. Tried to build cutting edge LMMS, then found that Ubuntu's cmake is obsolete and it won't let me build that manually either. You're either best off doing everything yourself or letting it do it all for you, it seems, but then you run into limitations of the distro.
I am getting the impression that Fedora is more geared towards source builds. I have been talking to an LMMS guru who uses Fedora, so I thought that Fedora would be the best distro to use to install LMMS.
Any pointers on how to run this live .iso off of sda2 and install it to empty sda1?
Install Ubuntu on External Hard Drive
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 29, 2012
This is my first experience with anything Ubuntu and Linux.
I have a 60 gb external hard drive that is attached to my Windows 7 (Home Premium SP1 64 bit) via USB 2.0.
I would like to install Ubuntu to this external hard drive somehow so I can install programs in Ubuntu, save files and have them remain, etc. I would like that hard drive to be bootable, so I can choose to run Win 7 or Ubuntu when I start up. If possible, I would also like to be able to run Ubuntu off that hard drive inside a virtual machine so I can have programs open in Ubuntu and Windows 7 simultaneously.
A step-by-step of how to do this would be great... Thank you so much!
