Make a live CD in a partition of my EHD?

Postby yowmamasita » Sun Feb 17, 2013 6:37 am

I have about 2GB unallocated space in my 1TB EHD. I want to put a live CD image on it (and if possible, with persistence too). Is this possible?

I do this before on smaller flash drives using dd but that replaces the partition table of the whole drive (dd of=/dev/sdb ...) but I only want it on a partition so I have no idea right now.

Thanks!

You'd need to use unetbootin - make a partition for it - fat32 and put the boot flag as active on this partition.
Then use unetbootin - point to that partition - I think its called a frugal install.
