Topic: [Solved] Success running Live HD using LILO
Hello I'm new to the forums and an old Slackware user.
I read the online documentation for GParted Live on Hard Disk and was able to
translate it from Grub into LILO.
Here are my notes to myself for doing it next time...
Download the gparted-live...zip file from:
Create an LBA FAT32 partition of 256MiB.
Lets call it /dev/sda2 for this example.
If you don't have GParted, use fdisk and make the partition type "c".
And again if you don't have GParted make a dos filesystem on the partition:
Create directory /a2 and mount the partition there:
mount -t vfat /dev/sda2 /a2
Unzip the GParted download file into the /a2 directory:
Edit the /etc/lilo.conf file:
# GParted bootable partition config begins
image = /a2/live/vmlinuz
root = /dev/sda2
label = gparted
append = "boot=live config union=aufs noswap noprompt ip=frommedia live-media-path=/live bootfrom=/dev/sda2 toram=filesystem.squashfs"
initrd = /a2/live/initrd.img
# GParted bootable partition config ends
