Use Win32 Disk Imager on Windows or dd to write the ISO to the USB stick on Linux/OSX. dd if=CentOS-7.0-1406-x86_64-NetInstall.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=8m I've recently used the first and it booted fine after doing that.

This should involve some kind of emulation such as linprocfs that will allow you to run Linux binaries inside FreeBSD. I don´t think that such technology exists, where you will be able to run Linux binaries inside XNU. However, you could give it a try on the PureDarwin software distribution, that is a Darwin compilation and it will allow you to user ...

Probably Wrong windows Partition mounted .. Look for a small Partition of 100 or 300MB(boot Partition of Windows) mount it and run the command again. If you still having problem edit /etc/grub.d/40_custom and add following to the end of the file, assuming Windows boot partition is first partition of the first hard disk and don't forget to run the command ...

An easy way is to just create a directory in /tmp and use a symlink: mkdir /tmp/mine ln -s /tmp/mine /home/me/tmp You may want to chmod 700 /tmp/mine to keep it private. If you instead want to mount an actual separate tmpfs directory: mount -t tmpfs -o size=100M tmpfs /home/me/tmp You need root privileges to do this, but normal permissions rules apply ...

Using the @reboot cron keyword, this will execute the specified command once after the machine got booted every time. @reboot rm -rf /dev/tmp/*

If you need simple, easy to set up bootloader, then I recommend LILO. It is less capable than GRUB2, but on home desktop PC it doesn't really matter.

Typically, swap is configured in /etc/fstab. It sounds like you have a swap device configured there which doesn't exist. If you intend to have swap, you need to change the UUID to the one that actually exists on your system.

Try booting in recovery mode (select via grub). This way you may see more output. There is also a kernel command line option that you can set (I believe you have to make sure quiet is not set). Also you may want to check the journal after boot has finished. It may be the case that systemd is waiting for some devices that are not present (probably because ...

Mount the windows Partition. (If you can't mount install ntfsprogs-2013.1.13-5.el7.x86_64.rpm and ntfs-3g-2013.1.13-5.el7.x86_64.rpm) Run as root grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

A few things: 1) Doesn't the x11 option require that the program is launched while an xserver is running? 2) Apart from this you could try cron, using the @reboot directive. 3) You might also use the screen utility to daemonize your script. 4) Further you might use sudo -u underprivileged-user ... to prevent running the program as root.

So, the reason was that I had compiled the kernel like so: make oldconfig make -j6 sudo make install I was wondering why my previous (official ubuntu repo) initrd was 28m in size while the new one was 8m. I had not installed the modules! Doing sudo make INSTALL_MOD_STRIP=1 modules_install sudo make install fixed it. Now the HD crypto is initialized ...

The solution: installed grub on the second disk and changed the order of boot device.

Probably SELinux is preventing from startup. Mine too was not starting . And here's what I did to solve my problem : Selected 2 option (rescue mode) and press e ; Added 3 in front of .....rhb quiet (Like this : rhb quiet "3") and press Ctrl+x Then I logged in as root in virtual terminal and typed startx and pressed Enter Then I was logged in graphically ...

Reinstall the CentOS bootloader (whether it is LILO or GRUB). The bootloader installer should recognize OSes in your machine and automatically show you OS choices in booting time. CMIIW.

The easiest way would be to take your WiFi config out of /etc/network/interfaces or similar and switch to Network Manager. Even if you set the connection to a system connection, it should be brought up in the background. This also gives you much easier WiFi connection management, at least for laptops that may be moving between networks. You could also take ...

I'd start with taking a look at the setup of your system, specifically the contents of the file, /etc/fstab. In there it will show you what partitions are being mounted and how they're being mounted. It's likely the case that with the addition of this new device that it's throwing the device handles off slightly, causing your system not to be able to access ...

I didn't find the cause of the slow booting with GRUB 2. I ended up using EXTLINUX instead, which is compact and fast, and better-suited if you don't need all the fancy GRUB 2 things. http://www.syslinux.org/wiki/index.php/EXTLINUX

I've just had to deal with this on a laptop running Debian Testing (Jessie/Sid). Possibly relevant: swap partition on an LVM volume (non-encrypted) at /dev/vg1/swap. To make the system resume after hibernation, I had to edit /etc/default/grub and change GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="resume=/dev/mapper/vg1-swap" and then run ...

I would guess that this has much to do with the way bootloader and kernel are glued. Section 5.1.3 (Bootstrap Loader) in Hallinan's Embedded Linux Primer has the following to say on this : Some bootstrap loaders perform checksum verification of the kernel image, and most decompress and relocate the kernel image. The difference between a bootloader and a ...

I don't think there's a way of bypassing GRUB2 (or any other Linux bootloader) via EasyBCD. Most probably EasyBCD is not a universal bootloader and it works by chain loading into GRUB2. Your best bet is to try and make GRUB2 timeout on the Ubuntu entry immediately as Jonyburd's answer is suggesting. I believe you should look into why it failed.

Try changing the values that are in etc/default/grub to look like these: GRUB_DEFAULT=0 GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0 GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true GRUB_TIMEOUT=0 GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian` GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" Then run sudo update-grub.

Just in case anyone else ever has to the same thing I did here, I'll answer my own question. 1) Get the binary DVD iso image from redhat.com 2) Remove unnecessary rpms (GNOME, eclipse) so that it is less than 4GB (this allows it to be stored on a FAT32 filesystem) -copy this iso onto a USB 3) Remove the iso image that comes with the previous bootable USB ...

As the kernel documentation states, /dev/nfs is not a real device but only a hint to the kernel to use NFS as rootfs. You'll also have to tell the kernel where to find this root through the nfsroot parameter or a properly set up DHCP daemon. For the latter one to work you'll also have to either configure your kernel to auto-configure its network ...
