Hi, I read the page on the wiki that explain how to install pardus 2009 on a netbook. There's still nothing for 2011 version, so here's my question: does mandriva.seed.sh work or do I need another software like unetbootin or pendrivelinux? I'm using Windows right now. Thanks for your help  Grin

   and I modified the Installation on a Netbook Wiki

....... I'm using Windows right now. .......
I don't think mandriva-seed.sh is going to work in W... as it's Method 2 (for Linux users)
For Windows there is Creating a Pardus Installation CD/DVD in Windows.

Thanks for your answer  Grin I've got something called mandriva-seed for windows or something like that , I don't know if it's the same mandriva-seed for linux  Huh? I found it here http://forum.mandriva.com/viewtopic.php?t=112789
Anyway what you posted for windows is for creating a cd/dvd, right? I need to boot from a usb drive because I've got a netbook  Sad

Thanks for this information and I will investigate what mandriva-seed-windows.zip can do.
You can also test this yourself.

Yes, it's for CD/DVD and  not for a netbook.

And to compensate for my not-100%-good answer, I have an already existing (and tested) solution for Windows.
It's in the German language and maybe http://translate.google.com/ can be of any help if you can't read this language.
The solution is at: http://forum.pardususer.de/index.php?topic=1198.msg12478#msg12478

But I will come back on this subject for a more elegant solution.

Kein Problem  Grin
Well, actually I had to translate it but doesn't matter  Grin Tomorrow I'll try with this mandriva-seed for windows and then with your solution if mandriva doesn't work, thanks man  Wink
I bought an Acer aspire one D260 just three days ago, I wanted to install Xubuntu and I tried with Pendrivelinux, unetbootin, the ubuntu tool... Every software was different. With unetbootin I was able to run it, but then the installation freezed after two minutes. The ubuntu tool didn't work at all and with pendrivelinux the installation software crashed with an error message. I'm new to usb installation with Linux, but is there such a big difference from software to software?  Huh?

It depends on how the .iso file is made:
1. When it's made as a non-hybrid iso (like Pardus before P2009.2 and thus out-of-date) a bootable USB version can be made as described >HERE<.
2. When it's made as a hybrid iso (like Pardus 2009.2 and newer versions)  a bootable USB version can be made as described >HERE<.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Pardus   ^_^

atolboo already gave You a great overview.
And I also have one solution:

There is also a linux terminal command available for creating an usb-stick for installation of Pardus.

So if there is a hybrid ISO is available, then just type the following command into the Linux terminal:
Code:
dd if=Pardus_CD.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=4M

Pardus_CD.iso is the name of the Pardus ISO and
/dev/sdX is the mount point of the stick.

Of course the GUI tools are much easier to use.

And now the trick:

dd is also available on windows:
Tool1: http://www.chrysocome.net/downloads/dd-0.5.zip
Tool2: http://sourceforge.net/projects/unxutils/

And here is the modified command for the Windows DOS-Box:
Code:
dd if=C:\Pardus\PARDUS_CD.iso of=\\.\f: bs=4M

Again:
Pardus_CD.iso is the name of the Pardus ISO and
f:  is the drive-letter of the stick.

Good Luck and have fun!  :-)

Tested the above program and modified the Installation of Pardus 2008/2009/2011 on a Netbook manual.
Again thanks for the tip. Wink
