how do i run Centos 5.1 installation CD form a USB key
i'm trying to figure out how to put the Centos 5.1 installation dvd(and not the live CD) into a USB key so i can run and run into rescue modes as well.
i tried fedora usb key creator which works with live cds apparently. it booted with it but it asks for the location of rescue image. i tried different folders including centos folder within the same usb key but no luck.
there is a folder named images in the dvd as well as key and the only help file says :
This directory contains image files that can be used to create media
capable of starting the CentOS installation process.
The boot.iso file is an ISO 9660 image of a bootable CD-ROM. It is useful
in cases where the CD-ROM installation method is not desired, but the
CD-ROM's boot speed would be an advantage.
To use this image file, burn the file onto CD-R (or CD-RW) media as you
The diskboot.img file is a VFAT filesystem image that can be written to a USB pendrive or other bootable media larger than a floppy. Note that
booting via USB is dependent on your BIOS supporting this. It should
be written to the device using dd.
anyone has a better idea how to set it up and make it work ?
