I am new to linux. What I need is- I need such a linux os that can boot from CD as well as from hard drive(Logical partition). In case of booting with hard drive there will be dual boot with Windows-Vista or with Windows-XP.
For above purpose after some googling I found that PUPPY-linux can be booted from CD and from hard drive. I followed the link- (http://www.icpug.org.uk/national/lin...p01-4steps.htm
) In this link there are some steps by following those I downloaded the .iso file of Puppy v.4.2.1(puppy-4.2.1-k184.108.40.206-seamonkey.iso). After burning it to a CD I am able to boot my machine with that CD an PUPPY linux runs smoothly.
Now I want to boot it from my hard drive. I followed the steps given there(http://www.icpug.org.uk/national/lin...ep3-puppy4.htm
) and do all the changes in to menu.lst file as:-
title Puppy Linux 4.2.1
kernel (hd0,0)/puppy421/vmlinuz PMEDIA=satahd PDEV1=sda1 psubdir=puppy421 psubOK=TRUE
I also put initrd.gz ; vmlinuz ; pup_421.sfs files to C:\puppy421 folder.
(Note- I have already download grldr file from http://www.icpug.org.uk/national/linnwin/step1-xp.htm
and it is there in C:\ drive)
Now If I boot my machine I see there two options to boot with (because I already made the change in boot.ini file to select the option)
- Microsoft Windows XP Professional
- Start Linux
I select second option "Start Linux".
Now I get one error message that says - "Error19 linux kernel must be loaded before initrd" and it get hang on this screen and I need to restart it from Windows XP.
Did someone face this problem? Is something else I am missing?
Please help me out.
