Installing debian lenny using GRUB

on previous post we can install debian lenny using USB memori stick. Now, we will try install debian lenny using grub. So without burned on CD.

tools needed:

1. Grub
2. vmlinuz and initrd
3. boot.img.gz (optional)


first step, grub must installed on your machine. Then, copy vmlinuz and initrd to partition. example: sda4

cp {vmlinuz,initrd} /mnt/sda4

also your lenny ISO

cp /mnt/sda3/iso/debian-sid-lenny-cd/debian-testing-i386-CD-1.iso /mnt/sda4/

Now, just adding list menu on GRUB like this:

title           Debian Installer
root            (hd0,3)
kernel          /vmlinuz vga=791
initrd          /initrd.gz

reboot and try it …
maknyuss….. 😉


same as with previous post. we can using graphical installer using boot.img.gz . Extract it, and mount with loop. copy all needed.

mkdir tmp
gunzip boot.img.gz
mount boot.img tmp/ -o loop

copy all things on tmp to /mnt/sda4

cp tmp/* /mnt/sda4

add on list grub

title           Debian Graphic Installer
root            (hd0,3)
kernel          /linux vga=791
initrd          /initrdg.gz
