When I boot Clonezilla Live with PXE, and I want to use Recovery-iso-zip tool, I get this error :
No system files from template live iso are found ! Something went wrong!
It seems to be missing initrd1.img and vmlinuz1 in "/live/image/live" directory.
How I can resolv it ?
Yes, that's the problem…
Maybe you can copy the initrd1.img and vmlinuz1 to "/live/image/live" ?
Thanks for your reply.
But how I can do that for all of my PXE boot ? How I can put initrd1.img and vmlinuz1 to PXE live clonezilla ?
You can make it by:
busybox tftp -g -b 10240 -r Clonezilla-live-vmlinuz1 -l vmlinuz1 $TFTPSERVER
busybox tftp -g -b 10240 -r Clonezilla-live-initrd1.img -l initrd1.img $TFTPSERVER
Replace "Clonezilla-live-vmlinuz1", "Clonezilla-live-initrd1.img" and "$TFTPSERVER" with your corresponding files and server names.
BTW, these can be done on 2nd virtual console by pressing ctrl-alt-F2. One you have finished it, press ctrl-alt-F1 to back to the 1st console to continue creating recovery iso/zip.
I add this parameters to Clonezilla initrd, in my PXE configuration :
ocs_prerun="busybox tftp -g -b 10240 -r /images/clonezilla/vmlinuz1 -l /live/image/live/vmlinuz1 $TFTPSERVER" ocs_prerun1="busybox tftp -g -b 10240 -r /images/clonezilla/initrd1.img -l /live/image/live/initrd1.img $TFTPSERVER" ocs_prerun2="busybox tftp -g -b 10240 -r /images/clonezilla/utils.zip -l /live/image/utils.zip $TFTPSERVER" ocs_prerun3="sudo unzip /live/image/utils.zip -d /live/image"
Now, I can use Recovery-iso-zip tool with my PXE boot :D
For future googlers, the paths (at least in 2.2.1-25) are now:
And the manual tftp commands are:
busybox tftp -g -b 10240 -r /path/to/vmlinuz -l /lib/live/mount/medium/live/vmlinuz $TFTPSERVER
busybox tftp -g -b 10240 -r /path/to/initrd.img -l /lib/live/mount/medium/live/initrd.img $TFTPSERVER
Also if you try to put this in your pxelinux.cfg/default file (to automate the download), and you box pxeboots up but stops at the "Trying to load: pxelinux.cfg/default" line, you may need to upgrade your pxelinux.0 to a newer version that can handle a long APPEND line. HTH.
Yes, we follow the changes in Debian live, our upstream.
Thanks for sharing that.
Ok can someone help me here. I really do not understand. I am getting No system files from template live iso are found.
I do not have /lib/live/mount/medium/live/ or /live/image/live in my image directory or my clonezilla usb key. Can someone please explain this a little more. Seems like it should be simple. Why isn't this included if it's for an option to work?
THanks for the help.
"I do not have /lib/live/mount/medium/live/ or /live/image/live in my image directory or my clonezilla usb key. " -> These directories only exist after you boot Clonezilla live. It's not on the boot media, and it's on the running live, Linux system.
Thanks Steven. It seems that I cannot copy those files from the media after booting to that directory. This could be a great feature.. but If I cannot boot to or there is no way to use. Thanks for the help.
If what you want is the files vmlinuz and initrd.img, it's in the /live/ directory in clonezilla live zip or iso file. You do not have to boot that. Just unzip the zip file or mount the iso file, then you can find them.
I don't really want them I am getting: No system files from template live iso are found when I try to create the recovery-iso-zip or any combination of them. It seems this is a bug as the recovery-iso-zip. I am using clonezilla-live-2.2.3-10-i486
Please show us your steps for creating such a recovery iso/zip file, and the pxelinux config file so that we can try to reproduce the problem here.
I boot from usb then once I am in the menu for clonezilla I select other version (option 2) choose 640x480 as this is an older i386 netbook like computer. Normal booting locks up on video.
I choose us keyboard and use my external hard drive (separate from boot usb.) as the storage location (Local Storage)
choose beginner and then select recovery-iso-zip then select the image I want to be recovery-iso-zip.
I have not made any changes to the pxelinux file.
"I have not made any changes to the pxelinux file." -> What did you mean by that?
Still I need to know the content of pxelinux config file. Please post it.
There is no pxelinux file on my boot media. I am not using PXE I am using USB to boot.
It's very confusing to me. Maybe you start a new thread and describe all your situations. Not to hijack this thread.
