If you have another linux box available you might be able to do a network install easier. Haven't done it in years but it seemed easy at the time. Of course I was younger then.B)

Is it possible someone, who has managed to install elastix from usb stick successfully, tell us how to do it?

So far I have managed to copy the elastix files on a usb stick and make it bootable.

To do that you have to:
1. Rename the file in isolinux directory which is called isolinux.cfg to syslinux.cfg
2. Rename the directory called isolinux to syslinux
and then run "syslinux -ma E:" (where E: put the drive letter of your usb stick) from a command prompt using the syslinux.exe file attached to this post.

After that, connect the sub stick on the box you want to install elastix and make sure that BIOS has been set to boot from usb.

The problem is, that elastix install loads and after a while says "error downloading kickstart file"

why?

Re:Installation from USB Flash-drive

I tested the
Code:
ks=hd:sdb1/
and it works as
Code:
ks=hd:sda1/
in my system.

Now i have another problem.

After the language and keyboard type setup it asks to choose the "installation method".

Attempt 1. If you choose Hard drive and then /dev/sda1 you must write the directory holding images. I wrote "images" and it says:
Code:
Error
Failed to read directory /tmp/hdimage//images/
So what do you choose in the installation method in order to complete installation? What is the directory holding the images?

Attempt 2. At installation method If you choose local CDROM, it says:

Code:
No driver found
Unable to find any devices of the type needed for this installation type.
Would you like to manually select your driver or use a driver disk?
So for what hardware is the driver needed? for the usb stick? i do not have a driver disk for the usb stick. Is there a generic driver i can use and solve this problem?
:huh:


Thanks in advance

Put the whole elastix iso (>600 mb) in root folder of you usb stick.

Have you followed what's written into Elastix blog?
Of course you could have some problems with some driver. It's like on every Linux distro.
In this case, you must compile the specific driver.

Regards
