[debian-knoppix] make bootdisk for booting from usb
I want to install Knoppix on a external USB-HDD.
My problem is that the mainboard BIOS doesn't support booting via USB.
So I want to make a special boot CD or floppy that does the boot process and
loads the usb modules. After that the system operation should be handed over
to the installed OS.
I tried to make the boot disk like described at:
But I din't succeed in making the new modified boot.img. Do you have a hint
how I can make my disk with the changed files (in a certain directory)
mkisofs -... ?
At the end I want to have a full running system on a usb drive that I will be
able to plug in anywhere. That's why I don't try to use a bootloader like
LiLo or grub (even don't know if these could make the pc boot from usb).
There are already some posts:
Did anyone succeed in boot on a without BIOS-support from USB?
Thanks for your help
