More details for this issues.
I did follow below those instruction.

1 step
i've booted from the zeroshell cd-rom.

2 Step
Plug the USB disk stick(128Mb is just fine) into windows box, and copy downloaded image to it. rename it to something like ZS.img.gz

3 Sep
Remove USB stick from windows box, and plug it into ZeroShell box.

4 Step
Press 's' at console screen to get in to prompt
Create directory under /mnt/ called usbdisk using:
mkdir /mnt/usbdisk
mount the "usbdisk" using:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbdisk -t vfat

THIS STEP I HAD " mount: unknow filesystem type ' vfat' "

I CAN NOT GO TO NEXT STEP BELOW
PLS HELP ME

cd /mnt/usbdisk

5 Step
type "gunzip -c ZS.img.gz > /dev/hda

6 Step
Boot without Cd-Rom

7 Step
Go to Admin page of zeroshell and restore the database to the IDE HDD.

8 Step
Remove USB Stick

9 Step
Get a coca cola or pepsi from the icebox, as there is still allot of work to do, and you need the energy

10 Step
Tell Fulvio Ricciardi he is doing a good job, and you want this utility to run on Windows too! ho ho

Zeroshell 2.0RC1 doesn`t recognize ntfs or fat32 filesystem on usb stick. Simply download and burn on cd zs1b16. Than boot from this cd an continue the same way.

boot from live CD
then introduce your usb device in the computer and make the filesystem Mine was on sdb, so
# mkfs /dev/sdb -t ext2.

Then copy the img.gz image on your usb device then go on!!

my way works and sucks too: i cheat a bit to install zeroshell on my hard disk:

i copied the zs.usb.img.gz image on an usb card with ext2 filesystem
then i boot the live cd

then:

# mkdir /mnt/usb1
# mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb1 (where sdb1 device is my usb)

then
# gunzip -c /mnt/usb1/Z*.img.gz > /dev/sda (where sda is the hard disk)

then rebbot without the livecd, and it should work, it should boot without the livecd.

far away, it is possible to modify the initrd to customize ZS, at this point, the root system files are still loaded in ramdisk. sorry for my poor english.

Alternatively..

i use any linux-live cd (prefer Debian-Rescue-Live distribution)
Boot the linux system with the hard drive to install ZS already installed.

then, i 'wget http://na.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/zeroshell/ZeroShell-2.0.RC1-IDE-USB-SATA-Disk-2GB.img.gz' (the current USB/HDD/image file)

After this it's cake!
gunzip -c ZeroShell-2.0.RC1-IDE-USB-SATA-Disk-2GB.img.gz > /dev/sda (where /dev/sda is the device object name of the hard disk to be installed to)

This assumes the Live-CD detects your hard disk, network hardware, and internet connection.

Does someone have an issue not to load the sytem files in hard disk rathher than in ramdisk ?

I guess with a significant number of users, the RAM would be excedeed and, it would be better if we want to do persistents changes on files...

thank you and done more excuse my poor english level

Hello everybody,

I'm not a user of Linux but i'd try to install ZS 2.0R2 on a hd.

revealmap wrote "i copied the zs.usb.img.gz image on an usb card with ext2 filesystem" --> how can i do that with a computer using Windows?
First, i have to format a USB Key and copy on it the ...img.gz file.

Thank you to help me to discover the world of Linux.

Hi urubushell,

you can achieve format your usb key in ext2 for example by loading your system with any Linux live CD (look for live linux on internet) , then when the system is lauched, insert the usb key and type


# mkfs /dev/sdb -t ext2 (make filesystem ext2 on usb device. mine is on sdb ).

I did the same way with revealmap, booted from live CD and then I copied the img.gz image in my usb device and it works great!

Thank you all for the help/direction. I got it to work this way...

Copy current ZS.img.gz to a small flash drive.
Boot live-cd of GParted
mount usb drive (per directions above)
gunzip Z*img.gz (per directions above)
Reboot.

Booted to ZeroShell 2.0-RC2 off HD.

I'm a happy camper.
