is posible that, how? later of a large search i didn’t find anything, and find something but i really don’t understand so much, cause i don’t know what type of commands is used for, in linux.
It should be possible by using a partition the exact same size as the raw image file (or, a bit bigger, but the excess disk space will become unusable)
Also, you might want to look into “man dd”, this should take care of copying the raw file onto the hard drive.
Many people reported problems with making it bootable though.
Best scourge out the forum a bit. There’s a lot of information on what to do for that (although I don’t think it would be easy.)
If I were to have a bit more time, I will look into it myself…
you will need to download the haiku source and build at the very least the makebootable target… if you want to copy it to an extra partition if you have a dedicated PC it is simpler …BTW you can dd the image with most any livecd like DSL or Puppylinux
the test images provided here at haiku-os.com will only boot if you copy them to the first Hd and not to a partition ie dd if=haiku.image of=/dev/hda NOTE: hda1 will not work
of course if you figure out how to download the source and build makebootable (there are instructions) you can write the image anywhere and then run makebootable on it to make it bootable
to get the source:
you could try this to build a custom image
“of course if you figure out how to download the source and build makebootable (there are instructions) you can write the image anywhere and then run makebootable on it to make it bootable.”
about the only way i’ve seen that it MAY (MAY) work.
dd’ing the image results in losing the bootsector.Now you can make bootable another new drive image okay, but to dd it to a real drive doesn’t work. EVEN with ZETA.
bootman may help in this regards, but haven’t had any luck getting it to work YET.on either ZETA or Haiku.
