boot Sidux from ISO

  • Benny

    Also Sidux can be booted from its iso by gujin

    1) install gujin 2.8.1 on your USB pendrive
    2) download the sidux-2009.iso on your USB drive
    3) fire gujin and choose El-Torito option
    4) at Sidux menu choose your Language and F5 FROMISO option, then type the command fromiso=sidux-2009.iso
    5) go

  • Now with 2.8.2, sidux can be loaded as soon as sidux*.iso is found, just add in one gujin.cmd file (extract of gujin.cmd in the source archive):
    # File sidux-2009-04-moros-kde-lite-i386-200912310312.iso fsname "sidux" internal directory "/boot"
    # Ignore "quiet" because it is usually in internal command line, and "vga=791" because it is
    # automatically generated (when Gujin is not forced to start kernels in text mode)
    :sidux:vmlinuz0.686:initrd0.686::sidux 686:boot=fll
    :sidux:vmlinuz0.686:initrd0.686::sidux 686 Extra Options Text Mode:boot=fll 3

    # File sidux-2009-03-momos-xfce-i386-200911110039.iso fsname "sidux" internal directory "/boot"
    # Displays in the Gujin menu the choice: "sidux 686 (2.6.31)"
    :sidux:vmlinuz-2.6.31-6.slh.1-sidux-686:initrd.img-2.6.31-6.slh.1-sidux-686::sidux 686 (*):boot=fll
