Hello ;

If this can help you, here is my script to make this.

$NEW_PARTITION= <------------------- your partition (in ext3 for me)

echo "Copy of file system"

mkdir -p /mnt/disk
mount -t ext3 $NEW_PARTITION /mnt/disk

mkdir -p /mnt/squashfs
mount -t squashfs -o loop /live/image/live/filesystem.squashfs /mnt/squashfs

cp -a /mnt/squashfs/* /mnt/disk

umount /mnt/squashfs
rmdir /mnt/squashfs

cp -a /live/cow/etc/* /mnt/disk/etc


grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/disk $NEW_PARTITION --no-floppy


LIVE_GRUB=/live/image/boot/grub/menu.lst
HD_GRUB="/mnt/disk/boot/grub"

echo "timeout 3" > $TMP_FILE_1
echo "default 0" >> $TMP_FILE_1

echo "title		That you want" >> $TMP_FILE_1
echo -n "kernel		/boot/" >> $TMP_FILE_1

cat $LIVE_GRUB | grep "vmlinuz-" > $TMP_FILE_2
while read LINE1
do
	echo -n `echo $LINE1 | cut -d ' ' -f2,2 | cut -d '/' -f3,3` >> $TMP_FILE_1
	break
done < $TMP_FILE_2
echo -n " root=$NEW_PARTITION" >> $TMP_FILE_1
echo " locale=fr_FR.UTF-8 keyb=fr vga=771" >> $TMP_FILE_1

echo -n "initrd		/boot/" >> $TMP_FILE_1

cat $LIVE_GRUB | grep "initrd.img-" > $TMP_FILE_2
while read LINE1
do
	echo -n  $LINE1 | cut -d ' ' -f2,2 | cut -d '/' -f3,3 >> $TMP_FILE_1
	break
done < $TMP_FILE_2

mkdir -p $HD_GRUB
cp $TMP_FILE_1 $HD_GRUB"/menu.lst"

rm -f $TMP_FILE_1
rm -f $TMP_FILE_2


umount /mnt/disk


reboot
