Re: Is there a way to install Debian iso's from an existing installation onto a USB connected drive?

if you dont want to erase the existing contents of your USB stick (or you even dont need a USB stick)


 grab vmlinuz and initrd from 

then place  debian install iso of same version under root partition of disk (not only work for usb ,but also the partition on sdX you would not destory in next installation)

reboot with these too vmlinuz and initrd from GRUB (you should have it as you mentioned existing workable system)

and you are all through,nothing special to iso boot

 something like:

 1) download the iso's

 2) go: <some application> /dev/sdb

 where "/dev/sdb" is the device a USB disk is linked to

 then you would plug the disk on your computer and take it from there

 For that I used to burn live DVD but there should be a better way
