Re: Is it possible to install Debian in such a case.




Hi, experts

I want to summary the cases I tested here to this topic, FYI
Brian mentioned the installation could be finished in case 1 , but i'm still with no luck.
| Index | Case                       | Result                                         |
|     1 | GRUB + netinst iso         | Can start debian installer but can't           |
|       | + loopback boot            | continue due to no driver for CDROM,           |
|       |                            | and i can't find a way to tell/ mount the      |
|       |                            | iso                                            |
|       |                            |                                                |
|     2 | GRUB + /hd-media/initrd.gz | Can finish install process with the auto       |
|       | + netinst iso              | detected iso on USB/hd                         |
|       |                            |                                                |
|     3 | GRUB + livecd iso          | Could boot into live debian with               |
|       | + loopback boot            | boot=live fromiso=/dev/sdX/path/to/the/iso     |
|       |                            | I can't figure out how to boot manually within |
|       |                            | busy box, in this case one could finish        |
|       |                            | install process in LiveOS                      |
|       |                            |                                                |
