Re: How to install FC2 from harddisk


  I've just tried out some excellent ways to install FC2 from ISO files from FAT-Formatted partitions. Now I share them to all who's interested in.

  The main idea is to use the Linux Kernel-vmlinuz! The directory of FC2disk1/images/pxeboot is very useful(See README in the some directory)! OK, you can just follow my instructions below:

1, create a new directory named "install" (any you like).
2, copy the two files, "vmlinuz" and "initrd.img" in the "pxeboot"(just mentioned above), into the dir made in step 1.
3, copy a LOADLIN.EXE (for dos edtion, available in other distributions of linux) into the some dir.
4, in the some dir, create a Batch File named "install.bat" that contains this line:
     loadlin vmlinuz initrd=initrd.img ramdisk_size=9216 %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9

Now boot your system into DOS mode, enter the "install" directory, type "install" to run "install.bat" which could launch the installing process. Just follow the screen, and enjoy yourself!
