Linux Boot Disk Format procedure problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 2, 2011
I am working on Ubuntu 11.04 for Beagleboard. I am not sure this is the right place to post this question.
I followed the procedure to set the two partitions and tried to format the partitions. (mkfs,msdod, mkfs.ext3)
I thought by putting the Command (m for help): [w] The partition table was changed from W95 FAT32 (LBA) to
a totally different list.
[t] used to be [c] W95 FAT32 (LBA) now they are
0 unassigned 4 SunOS usr 8 SunOS home 82 Linux swap
1 Boot 5 Whole disk 9 SunOS alt secto 83 Linux native
2 SunOS root .....
3 SunOS swap .....
Please let me know how to go back to the original W95 FAT32 (LBA).
I want to make an install disk (CD or DVD) that contains my current Linux boot disk
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 2, 2014
I am running Ubuntu 12.04 - 32-bit. I have installed many packages that I use frequently.
How do I make a live-CD backup of my current system?
If my harddrive crashes, I want to be able to replace the drive, then boot with the CD/DVD and install to get my system restored.
I also have another system running Ubuntu 13.04 - 64-bit to which I have added many programs. I need to do the same with this system.

Creating a Linux Boot disk that would share the drive for backup via network to other
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 24, 2011
A Graphical linux version called RedoBackup from RedoBackup.org makes backups and is supposed to be able to find all shared disks on a network for backup.
I would like to be able to insert a CD or USB drive into other computers so the computer comes up with the drives shared so it can be backed up via network.
The issue is some copier print controllers are Linux and have no monitor or keyboard or backup method, restoring from original program disk is required but then any custom print settings, and jobs archived on controller are lost - Being able to boot with a USB or CD to a small linux version that shared the drive would allow a backup using a different computers monitor, keyboard and attached storage.
I can see where this might actually be a useful method of backing up all the workstation computers as well as Gigabit and SATA drives should be faster than USB2.
BIOS to GRUB/Linux Boot Slow After Disk Transfer
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 22, 2005
Finishing up an install of Fedora Core 3, ran very tight on disk space so I'm trying to transition my install to a brand-new larger disk. Currently experiencing delays from power-on to GRUB selection screen and also on system shutdown with the new disk that far exceed what happened with the original disk...
Would appreciate any ideas on how to resolve this. Details below.
Machine is a Dell Dimension 4100 with PIII 866MHz, 256MB DRAM.
The original disk: Western Digital ~3GB disk, ~9x% full (original FC3 install disk)
New disk: Western Digital 120GB disk
Added new disk to system as slave on same primary IDE controller as the original (which was master). BIOS sees new disk properly. Booted into FC3 OK. HW Browser reports both disks as having same geometry. Shut down.
Booted g4u 1.17 (http://www.feyrer.de/g4u/) off of the Ultimate Boot CD (http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/). Ran command 'copydisk wd0 wd1' to create a local copy of the

location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 5, 2004
Forgive me if this is a stupid question...newbie here. I've been asked to make a Windows Boot Rescue Disk using my Linux distro (SuSE 8.2 Pro). This person says they don't have Linux on their computer - but I can use my Linux distro to make this rescue boot disk for him. Does anybody have any idea what I'm to do? Thanks in advance.

Making a Linux boot disk without using Linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 23, 2004
I am trying to boot a live distribution (Morphix) on a computer that will only boot off of a floppy. I know the "proper" way is to change the the BIOS, but I am trying to make a bootable floppy to boot the CD. None of my Linux computers have floppy drives and I was unable to make a bootable disk with Morphix on another computer. I was wondering if there was a place I could get just a simple boot disk with LILO on it. I've tried tomsrtbt, but it's 2 MB and won't fit on a normal floppy.
Error after boot with REDHAT LINUX boot disk...HELP PLEASE!
- date: March 12, 2001
I have win98 on my main hard drive, and NOTHING on my slave hard drive. I have tried to install linux on my slave using the boot disk made. Since my slave drive doesn't have DOS or ANYTHING on it, do I need to install DOS on it? When I reboot my computer with the RED HAT LINUX boot disk, I go to the screen which gives me options like: PRESS ENTER FOR GRAPHICAL INSTALLATION along with other options. After I press ENTER, it gives me an error saying I must replace the boot disk and press ENTER again. The boot disk is done properly, but I don't know what else to do. Please help!!
