USB stick install

Postby zbasnik » Sun Jul 06, 2014 11:21 am

Hi--is there a method for installing Amahi from a USB Stick? I was able to install the ISO to a USB stick, but keep getting errors during the install to my PC. I guess I'm comparing it to OMV or FreeBSD where you can install from a USB stick to a USB stick on your PC. Please point me in the right direction. Thank you.

The method you are trying with the Express CD will not work.

The USB install is not supported, however there is guidance in the wiki.
https://wiki.amahi.org/index.php/Fedora_19_USB_install

Most questions can be answered by consulting the wiki. We use it as our primary documentation source.

I recognize that this hasn't been successful for everyone. But I have been able to make multiple bootable usb install drives. See this thread: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=5307

I have only heard of you and one other who had success. That makes it an unreliable method in my opinion.

I had created a bootable USB stick with Amahi 7.1
you need to edit the path inst.stage2=hd:LABEL=Amahi\x207.1\x20x86_64

change it to the mounted USB drive depending on what setup you have. Example that worked

inst.stage2=hd:SDC


Problem is that once you are in the installation screens there is a bug that causes it to crash.
SO your best bet is to install via the DVD method for the moment.

Or use this guidance in the wiki:

Tested many times with no failures.
