Install Debian from CD or LAN
August 30, 2010 07:25AM

at first I would like to THANK YOU for the great dockstar debian alternative install method.

I tested some configurations in debian and need often to reinstall the whole system (I am Linux beginner). Because I don't have a reliable DSL at home, I would like to ask for another install option: Is it possible to create a Install-CD with the install files on it or a chance to install the debian system from a local lan server?

Thanks and best regards, Jan

Do you use the Debian from USB-stick or from the NAND? If you boot from USB-stick you can make an Image on your local linux-desktop or use a live-cd.

- put in the usb-stick into the linux-desktop
- dd if=/dev/sdb of=/path/to/image.iso
(verify the device and path)

to "reinstall"

- put in the usb-stick into the linux-desktop
- dd if=/path/to/image.iso of=/dev/sdb
(verify the device and path)

Perhaps it is also possible to only make an image of one partition. I do not tested it yet.
