Using unofficial install scripts and guides are typically a recipe for unhappiness under Arch Linux. As recommended by @jasonwryan, you should really just follow the Beginners' Guide on the ArchWiki. If you do not have access to another computer on which to keep the Wiki page open, you can actually install one of two packages which provide (fairly) ...

For the most part, yes it is the same. The real differences you'll encounter when doing this as a host OS (compared to a client VM OS) is that VMs emulate very common hardware. If you real machine uses less common hardware you may need to install drivers which aren't usually needed in a VM. The other difference is going to be your hard drive setup. In a VM ...

That depends on when exactly you will do this and what is required to install the driver. The most likely answer is no, it won't be a problem. When a live CD is booted, an initial ramdisk is first loaded which contains most of the tools necessary to run your system. If you are at a prompt, these tools are already loaded and you should be able to remove the ...

I have not installed CentOS 7 myself yet, but you can try linuxefi /images/pxeboot/vmlinuz inst.stage2=hd:LABEL=CentOS\x207\x20x86_64 quiet **nomodeset** If that works, I would blacklist Nouveau after install.

Example using wget (for downloading), bfr (for buffering), and growisofs for burning: wget -q -O - http://somewhere/image.iso \ | bfr -b 512m -p -i 100% -m 10% -t 120 -T 95% \ | growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/cdrom=/dev/fd/0 The buffering part is optional, but without it you will have to rely on your drive to cope with buffer underruns. That doesn't work ...

Of course the primary goal is not to have the need to use swap in the first place... The main thing is to create the swap LVM volume when the system is still quite fresh, the same as when you create a swap file, as swap space performs best when it is contiguous. You don't want to actual disk blocks that make up the logical volume to be fragmented all over ...

For what it concerns Ubuntu you can search to follow what in Portable installed system that boots in UEFI as well as BIOS mode. You can find instructions on how to make an installed system (typically in a USB pendrive) that works with UEFI and BIOS, and is small enough to work in an undersized 8 GB pendrive (7.8 GB). So in a 16 it will be large ;-) The ...

the new ATA driver in the kernel use /dev/sda, the old drivers are still supported but you will have to edit your kernel by chrooting into you system using a livecd. Device drivers ---> <*> ATA/ATAPI/MFM/TLL support (deprecated) <*> Serial ATA and Parallel ATA drivers ---> For chrooting I always use the gentoo minimal installation cd ...

I think you must make bootable usb using dd command (if your iso is in home directory): First unmount (not eject) the usb: sudo umount /dev/sdb1 Then, write the image to the disk: sudo dd bs=4M if=CentOS-7.0-1406-x86_64-Everything.iso of=/dev/sdb Then it will not show /dev/root does not exist.

I would sum it up this way : the base procedure will be exactly the same, though the results may differ. Here's where you may find the most significant changes : Drives configuration : your physical drive does not use the same technology, and does not have the same properties (size, ...) as the virtual one. Still, partitioning, formatting and mounting are ...

After I shrunk the volume in Windows by a disappointing amount, the option to shrink the volume in the Fedora 20 installer became available allowing me to shrink it down by much more. Shrink the volume in Windows 1. Boot into Windows 2. Go to "Disk Management"     a. Right click "Computer" from the desktop or Start Menu ...

When the install is done, and before rebooting, edit /mnt/etc/fstab (the installed system's root is mounted under /mnt during install).
