    Koppix 6.2.0 ISO boot (also PXE iso boot from nfs or samba)

    Latest update (knx620k.zip) with big memory kernel (>4GB) in here: http://www.knoppix.net/forum/viewtop...=121968#121968

    Hello,
    Please find below the link to my first shoot at an updated Knoppix 6.2.0 minirt supporting ISO boot from ntfs, fat, ext, reiser,...
    http://s94002264.onlinehome.us/grub/knx620e.zip (Md5: 841e6717e100a92d0863a2e1de60d7e6 *knx620e.zip)
    For your convenience, the zip file includes: grldr, grub.exe, grub, menu.lst, linux (kernel) and minirt_620e.gz.
    This minirt also allows you to pxe (network) boot from the Knoppix 6.2.0 iso file on a ntfs or samba share, cf the menu.lst data below.
    Have fun and please provide some feedback !
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    FYI, I have it running on a multi boot system: Win7-64, XP-32, Osuse11.2-64, Knoppix620
    The Knoppix 620 dvd iso is located on the Win 7 ntfs system partition
    and the Win 7 boot loader starts grub using grldr.mbr (cf the file win7.bat for install)
    For XP install, look for the boot.ini loading grldr (grub)

    Grub config file menu.lst:
    ==================

    title Knoppix 6.2.0 from sda1 ISO
    kernel /linux bootfrom=/dev/sda1/boot/k620/*.iso lang=us ramdisk_size=100000 init=/etc/init apm=power-off nomce vga=791 quiet hostname=auto-clock
    initrd /minirt_620e.gz
    boot

    title Network NFS Boot Knoppix 6.2.0 from 10.0.0.1
    kernel /linux nfsdir=10.0.0.1:/home/nfs/k620 nodhcp lang=us ramdisk_size=100000 init=/etc/init apm=power-off nomce vga=791 quiet hostname=auto-clock
    initrd /minirt_620e.gz
    boot

    initrd /minirt_620e.gz
    boot

    title Network Samba ISO Boot Knoppix 6.2.0 from 10.0.0.1
    kernel /linux nfsdir=//10.0.0.1/home/samba bootfrom=iso/k620/*.iso nodhcp lang=us ramdisk_size=100000 init=/etc/init apm=power-off nomce vga=791 quiet hostname=auto-clock
    initrd /minirt_620e.gz
    boot

    I don't know why you never did this with the previous 6.x versions but thanks indeed for the ISO boot for 6.2. Time to get Knoppix on my hard drive again.

    Thanks Ruymbeke

    I'm not sure exactly how to get windows boot loader to boot grub in
    XP. I edited the boot.ini menu time out to 5 seconds and I have a boot grub entry when it boots but it doesnt boot the menu.lst.

    I get a:

    Windows could not start because the following file is missing
    or corrupt:
    <Windows root>\system32\hal.dll.
    Please re-install a copy of the above file.


    I tryed clicking the grub.exe but I get an error saying that an illegal operation has been performed.

    If I understand correctly, you don't need a second partition to boot the knoppix.iso ?
    I have them all booting with grub but I am curious about doing this in windows.

    grldr (grub) started from XP (NTFS)

    Hi sbininit,
    You need to modify your boot.ini to add an entry for grub (practically the file grldr)
    Please find below my boot.ini file as an example. Happy new Year !
    Gilles

    [boot loader]
    timeout=5
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOW S
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
    c:\grldr="Start Grub"

    Koppix 6.2.0 ISO boot with large memory kernel (>4GB)

    Hello,
    Please find below an update for the Koppix 6.2.0 ISO boot including an option for the large memory kernel (>4GB)
    http://s94002264.onlinehome.us/grub/knx620l.zip
    This also include the Network ISO boot option via NFS or SAMBA and the various combination of these options (cf menu.lst sample).
    Please note that for the large memory kernel (>4GB), the kernel modules are patched at boot time using a custom cloop and the unionfs.
    Have fun, and as usual please provide some feedback...
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    MD5: 4610a34f1fe54a5dc9ec02226395666b *knx620l.zip (38'914'931)

    PS: This mechanism allows me to also include at boot time the nvidia and ati (proprietary) drivers
    and have vmware workstation pre-installed and ready to use with a guest OS, all from a USB dongle.
    Is there a better way to travel without a laptop ? But I cannot share these because of the licenses...
    I already asked vmware for the permission and I am still waiting for an answer...

    Code:
    title Knoppix 6.2.0 from sda1 ISO + bigmem > 4GB
    kernel /c2_linux bootfrom=/dev/sda1/[bB][oO][oO][tT]/k620/*.iso myconf=scan cloop=c2_k2631 lang=us ramdisk_size=100000 init=/etc/init apm=power-off nomce vga=791 quiet hostname=auto-clock nolapic_timer
    initrd /c2_minirt_620n.gz
    boot
    PS: I found a small bug where I did not wait long enough for USB storage devices to be detected
    and wouldn't allow to boot from them in the previous file http://s94002264.onlinehome.us/grub/knx620k.zip
    Md5: 2084ccec5d3ee4b312640597d2d473b9 *knx620k.zip (38'911'247)
    (I also added in the latestknx620l.zip the Broacom wl.ko kernel module which was missing in the >4GB cloop file c2_k2631)

    Your welcome.
    Because of not enough free time and imho the previous versions of Knoppix were not as stable & robust as 6.2.0.

    Thanks and Happy New year
    So grub doesn't need installing in any kind of way?
    Is it necessary to place the grldr on root in the C drive ?
    I get a:

    Windows could not start because the following file is missing
    or corrupt:
    <Windows root>\system32\hal.dll.
