diskboot.img vfat image is gone in v6.1 ?

Postby vilius » 2011/12/13 10:52:11

Hello,

If I needed to install from usb I always used /images/diskboot.img vfat image, but in version 6, this image is gone.

I suppose they removed that because another method is available ?

thanks,
Vilius

/images/install.img

See the upstream Installation Guide.

Hi,

Any ways to mount it using loop device ?
It's certainly not vfat and not iso9660 image - I was unable to loop mount it.

thanks,
Vilius
