this post of henrichory, that's indeed very cool henrichrory. I try fruitless to install debian with a pendrive on a pc that has no cdrom

here the iso
http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/da...86-netinst.iso

the pc is too recent only this iso above works, with cable ethernet (wifi not working).

So the trick would be to take :
/cdrom/install.386
the syslinux and initrd, put a grub2, and use the trick above of henrichrory, to make a bootable pendrive

edit:
UNETBOOTIN is not well working. Now I understand why it is not recognized by debian stable. The UNETBOOTIN is not capable to let ISO boot, maybe few of them but thats all. Knoppix works, ok, but we want to install a pc with slack, fedora, debian...

sorry been away for a bit I've been busy holiday stuff..

and no to ERR I've changed some boot entries...
Was successful with 1 exception.. changed mbr to boot iso's only.. oops, I had to rewrite grub to include win7.

I am no longer getting any errors at all... since my 320G bit the dust about a week ago. Recovered all data but I'm gonna mess with it after new years .....

sounds great those 2 posts. Could we have some raw. img file format for pendrives and DVD for Debian testing, daily snapshot. That would be fantastic.

One single pendrive or dvd, and one can install new hardware. So many brand new hardware could be installed.

For instance , my new hp mini has no cdrom and too new ethernet/wifi. sky2 in the kernel 2.6.30 is very buggy.

so no wifi, just cable works but daily snapshot arent providing installer for it. Only on cdrom. A fake ISO grub2 cdrom would be great.

It would be great if we had a way to install linux on whatever new hardware, using ISO loopback sure for Debian. So img pendrive are welcome
