all the steps are the preliminary-tasks for installing a linux on a notebook that does not have any dvd-drive.
question is this the right way?
here some of the steps of what is the procedure to install OpenSuse linux from a USB flash drive
Acquire the correct OpenSuse installation files ('the ISO')
Put OpenSuse onto your USB flash drive
Configure the computer to boot from USB flash drive and boot from it
how to install opensuse to my internal drive (hard disk drive or solid state drive)
note: i plan to buy a subnetbook that has no CD or DVD-Drive.
which ways do we have to do a
a. fresh installation on a notebook
b. do do updates from time to time
love to hear from you
btw: i allready did some steps:
a. i allready have created a rescue-system for the emergency-situation:
i created a little resque-usb for SUSE-DVD on USB-Stick
a litle Rescue-USB while using Suse-ISO DVD on a USB medium 1:1 copied
step 1. Suse-ISO download:
step 2 copy the file onto a USB stick with the following command
dd if=openSUSE-13.2-Rescue-CD-x86_64.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=32k
where sdX=sdb or sdc is the USB stick
ready - now i can test the rescue-usb - and the best thing: with that i can install opensuse linux on notebook that does not have any dvd-drive.
linux-70ce:/home/martin # dd if=openSUSE-13.2-Rescue-CD-x86_64.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=32k

other ways to do this are the following:
a. "SystemRescueCD" - but this is the way with a CD
and like Tbone said:
b. However, the openSUSE website has much information on doing this exact thing already,
both with command-line tools and via GUI:
