Thread: Installing KNOPPIX 7.6.0 DVD iso image on a bootable usb-stick.

    Installing KNOPPIX 7.6.0 DVD iso image on a bootable usb-stick.

    Hi, I have a laptop running kubuntu without any windows installed. I have downloaded the KNOPPIX ISO image The laptop I am using has no DVD unit. I need to know how to make a bootable USB-stick. Preferable it should work on both 32-bit (Pentium-4) and 64-bit (AMD or Intel CPU). I have a couple of computers but no working windows version. They was dying years ago and reinstall them with GNU/Linux Live USB. Previous Live iso images I just did "dd if= of=/dev/sdb bs=4M" and was able to restart the computer booting the live usb stick. I have tried above method and unetbootin without any luck. How do I continue?

    Hi!

    I think the question is how to create a bootable USB stick with Knoppix 7.6.0 on it without having to boot Knoppix itself.

    I suggest you try the following.
    If you already have got a bootable USB stick with syslinux 6.0.3 you could mount the Knoppix ISO and copy the KNOPPIX directory with subdirectories to the root directory of the USB stick. Then copy the boot directory with subdirectories to the USB stick, too. Rename the directory boot/isolinux to boot/syslinux and the configuration file boot/syslinux/isolinux.cfg to boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg

    Try to boot from your USB stick. If it does not boot try to configure syslinux so that it uses boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg

    Found a solution using isohybrid and cat

    http://www.wgdd.de/2013/08/create-kn...tick-from.html I have found a solution and it worked from lubuntu. $ isohybrid -o 1 -h 64 -s 32 -e 1 KNOPPIX_V7.6.0DVD-2015-11-21-EN.iso and $ cat KNOPPIX_V7.6.0DVD-2015-11-21-EN.iso > /dev/sdb I now running KNOPPIX 7.6.0 and now install it to the harddisk.

    And? Do you also have → persistent memory and → UNIONFS?

    In my last posting I forgot to mention, how to use Knoppix without DVD-drive.

    You can read more about isohybrid in the Syslinux Wiki.

    @ mikael.palmkvist@yahoo.se: Thank you for telling us your solution. I did not know the program isohybrid before.
