Enable to boot from usb key

Сообщение dago68 » 15 июн 2013, 20:15

Hi all,

It's really a pity not to have the feature to boot from usb key like big distros do also with persistence. :evil:

There are a lot of tablets or netbooks without cd/dvd.

People would avoid to spend money to burn CDs or DVDs.

Hope Rosa would consider this very important, in order to spread their distro around the world.

Regards,

Dago68

Looks like you do not read the ROSA Wiki, or do not read it carefully. :wink:

I installed 2012.1 R1 from USB stick without any problem. Installation from USB on i3 laptop took few minutes. :Yahoo!:

Just download ISO file and RosaImageWriter from here. Run RosaImageWriter, locate the ISO, and in few minutes you will have bootable USB. You can run ROSA in live mode, and of course you can install it from USB.

Hi viking,

thanks for your reponse, I know this tool but I consider this only a workaroud not a real solution.

There are a lot of software allowing to install iso on usb fat32 also with 3-4 iso booting in the same key.

Installing a raw image on usb stick it's usefull if it's only around 2gb.

Have you tried it on a usb disk with 250gb or plus?

You are right if we want an usb live booting well but majors distro do it better i think also with persistence on usb why ROSA can't be interested about this feature?

I find maybe one solution.

I call my pendrive ROSETTA :lol:

then I changed in syslinux directory two files:

isolinux.cfg

syslinux.cfg

inside these files where I foud CDLABEL=ROSA.FRESH.KDE.R1.x86_64 I changed in CDLABEL=ROSETTA

because we cannot rename a pendrive fat32 "ROSA.FRESH.KDE.R1.x86_64" it's too long !!!

ROSETTA is working :Yahoo!: but only with latest R1 release.

Only one problem left is to make a fat partition for EFI separated.

Regards
