    Installing .iso Knoppix DVD in Knoppix

    Dear Forum member,

    How can I install a .iso DVD in an existing Knoppix installation? Booting of the .iso DVD is not possible.

    Thank you for your answer.

    Hi,

    if you only want to read the content of a .iso file you can mount the file as a loop back device. Do not forget to use the filesystem type 'iso9660' and the option 'readonly'.

    If you really want to boot an operating system inside a running Knoppix you can use qemu.

    Please tell us more!
    Have you a "HD install" and do you want an "ISO install to HD" as they are described at this Wiki website?

    Which Knoppix version uses your HD install?

    What is the size of RAM of your computer? Why doesn't you can use a DVD drive?

    Have look at this Wiki website about using of Qemu.

    Werner,

    Thank you for your response.

    I loaded ARIANE Knoppix V 7.2.0 with a Lili USB Creater on the HD. With this intallation I want to install the Knoppix 7.4.0. DVD on the same HD. (Indirect, because a direct installation of the DVD doesn't work.)

    The pc doesn't boot from the DVD but the DVD is visible in /media/sr0

    AMD, 1.6GHz, 3GB RAM.

    I also tried to install the .iso image from "Linux for Dummies". But this also cann't be installed. The same problem.

    Please let me know if you have further questions.

    hansieb.

    If you try to boot wirh Knoppix 7.4.0. DVD did anything happens or get you an error message?

    Did you test the integrity of the download by md5sum?

    Please answer as exactly as possible my last questions.

    Can the DVD drive read any other CD/DVD (not Knoppix)?

    Werner,

    1 The DVD drive can read a DVD because I can "see" the Knoppix DVD in the File Manager "PCManFM". In /media/sr0 I can "see" KNOPPIX_V7.4.0DVD-2014-08-01-EN.iso

    2 It can not boot up from the DVD drive. Nor the ISO DVD from Knoppix, nor the ISO from the book "Linux for Dummies". This is the problem. The DVDs are visible in the File Manager, so it can read a CD/DVD. It can not boot from the same DVD.

    3 I put a windows DVD in the DVD driver. I can "see" it in the File Manager.

    Thank you,

    hansieb
