usb image

Postby retired » Mon May 30, 2011 1:49 pm

Hello - I would like to try Parsix but I am having trouble with the image on usb stick. I downloaded iso and tried unetbootin through both xp and mint - no good, then I tried in mint using dd command - no good. Each time after starting bootup process message says can't find image. Thanks for help.

Parsix has a USB image creation tool. The command is parsix-iso2usb. Please see man parsix-iso2usb for details and usage. Let me know if you have any questions.

I don't have Parsix installed so I don't have access to that tool. Is there another way to put the iso image on a usb stick ?

You have two options:

1) Do you have a Debian based distro? If yes, you can manually install the parsix-iso2usb package and run it: http://packages.parsix.org/official/poo ... installer/

2) Lunch Parsix in live mode, then run the tool via the live session. You need to have access to the ISO file though.

Let me know how it goes.

I have a formatted usb device ready (/dev/sdb) and I've downloaded and installed the parsix-iso2usb tool and after reading the man page I enter the command "parsix-iso2usb -D /dev/sdb --iso /home/pat/Desktop/parsix_3.7r0-TEST-1-i386.iso \ -- lang=us tz=America/Los_Angeles" and I get "E: requires distro-defaults" in a terminal. I guess something is wrong with my command but I can't figure it out yet. What do I need to change in the command ?

You have the ISO, burn it and run the tool from there. OR download this:

http://packages.parsix.org/official/poo ... 7.2.tar.gz

Open it, there should be a file called "distro" copy it to /etc/default/ and the re-run the command. Should work this time.

I'm unable to burn 3.7 onto a usb. I don't have Parsix installed in my machine so can't use parsix-iso2usb, tried dd but not working. All other debian distros work with Unetbootin which i tried with Parsix but that didn't work as well.

Can anyone suggest a way out?

Why you are not trying to create the USB within the live session?

I can create the USB from live session only when i can boot into live session. I'm unable to boot into live session using USB. It keeps throwing "Can't access tty" and "No live image found".

Any pointers to fix those issues?

Could you please someone write the command in parsix—iso2usb for me to install:
FROM:
/media/sda2/SOFT/LINUX-SOFTs/parsix_6.0r1-i386.iso
TO:
a 8Gb flash drive formatted in FAT32 (but dont mind to format it again) at:
/dev/sdb1

AND I want to give the max space to persist.

Here you go:

Code: Select all
parsix-iso2usb -D /dev/sdb -P 10 -n --iso /media/sda2/SOFT/LINUX-SOFTs/parsix_6.0r1-i386.iso

Thanks alan; it works except 1) the command works when the format is fat32 not other formats (it's even better, I dont mind) and 2) the boot screen appears beautifully but after pushing enter, screen goes blank forever.

what is wrong?

What type of machine you are trying to boot this up on? You may need to disable kernel modsettings for your graphic chip if it goes to a black screen. This happens with some AMD A series embedded ATI chips.
