Hi Guys,

i try to install Zeroshell 3.0 on my harddisk using the live-CD and the 2GB Disk Image.

I do it the following way:
1. boot with live-cd
2. format the disk with fdisk /dev/sda
3. reboot
4. make new filesystem on sda with mkfs /dev/sda
5. sounting my usb-stick with mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/loop1
6. extract the 2GB-Disk-Image to the Disk gunzip Zeroshell... > /dev/sda
7. wait until finished, reboot without live-cd

now the problem:
Grub can not read the filesystem an reports an error...

I did the same way with ZS 2.0.RC3 and had no problem!
Anybody has experience in installing ZS3.0 on harddisk?

thanks in advance,
hummel

As I understand there is Installation Manager now that can do it for you, but I built my own 3.0 HDD install by simply plugging the HDD into my other Linux machine and doing

dd if=/path/to/ZS_flash_image of=/dev/sdb ibs=16MB obs=16MB

where /dev/sdb was the ZS HDD device name. It worked fine.

Thanks for your Reply.

I tried your option, but grub reports the "unknown filesystem" error again...

Not trying to insult your intelligence, and I am sure you did, but did you unzip the flash image you've downloaded?

For me the process was as follows:

$ wget http://.../ZeroShell-3.0.0-Disk-2GB.img.gz
$ gzip -d ZeroShell-3.0.0-Disk-2GB.img.gz
$ dd if=ZeroShell-3.0.0-Disk-2GB.img of=/dev/sdX

At first it did not work for me too, as I connected the external USB drive enclosure to a hub which was generating read/write errors. Once discovered that using checksum, I connected to the motherboard port directly, ran dd again and that time it worked.
