Installing from hdd (grub2)?

Postby m1losh on Fri Mar 15, 2013 4:22 pm

Hi,
I was wandering is there a way to install Mint from hdd on another distribution and which are the commands for grub?
I've seen threads about installing from an USB device so I wander is the procedure the same?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Are you trying to install LMDE, by any chance?

Yes, I do. I managed to get it to work with this command:
Code: Select all
menuentry "Linux Mint Debian Edition" {
set root=(hdX,Y)
set isofile="/isofile.iso"
    loopback loop $isofile
    linux (loop)/casper/vmlinuz fromiso=/dev/disk/by-uuid/UUID/$isofile boot=live config live-media-path=/casper noeject --
    initrd (loop)/casper/initrd.lz
    }

yes

I'm glad you got it sorted. That script change was the next recommendation. The LMDE iso has to be mounted differently to the Ubuntu-based editions.

Cheers.
