    Regardless - very cool!

    Hi, i have an old notebook (without cdrom /dvd) and want to install tinypaw on it using USB, how it will work ?
    I tried rufus, unetbootin, universal usb installer, but it all has failed. i highly doubt its even possible because iam not new to linux.

    thanks

    I have done a USB install, it is not impossible at all? I ripped the ISO to CD though, booted live with the installer option and installed to the mounted USB dirve (sdb1).

    Or, partition your USB device in half, mount the live run on half and boot into it, then mount and install on the other half of the USB device. Otherwise if you rip the ISO to the entire device you will not be able to unmount and install on it during live run.

    You did mean install and run off USB device correct? persistent USB install?

    Hmm interesting, that is an issue. Installing to USB, running off usb works just fine. Yet, yes - the live .iso boots in VM and CD yet USB doesn't boot the initial .iso only installed and mounted.. I am looking into this :/ Apologies

    @r1sen @n33lixx could be a BIOS issue UEFI only perhaps. I highly recommend a dual boot system. That way you could have Windows, TinyPaw and Mac or Linux on different partitions for more flexibility. Also consider using TinyPaw as a VM in Windows too.

    Man if you had the time to do all the documentation and easy to use videos this TinyPaw could be a good little income earner for you.

    Ah yes, if only I had infinite amount of time in a day lol

    And yes, I personally run Linux with about a million cluster VM's - I haven't used Windows since XP :p

    @r1sen

    hopefully you could fix it next days, iam unable to use cdrom / dvd on this old notebook (1,2ghz 2gb ram) i need tinypaw to be installed on this old laptop, because its a handy, lightweigh, little weapon, which is easy to carry around and it has already an inbuild monitor mode able wifi card. i dont want to install ubuntu on it,vmware, and mount tinypaw to get it to work .... that would be shitty

    I agree - I am literally working on it now, I am testing other boot rippers, iso burners and usb-live writers, I will keep you posted.

    Done and done @n33lixx

    SourceForge: TinyPaw_v1.1.1_hybrid.iso

    BitBucket: TinyPaw_v1.1.1_hybrid.iso

    Used "isohybrid ~/path_to/TinyPaw_v.1.1.1.iso" and converted for USB live boot. It partitions only the space of the USB device needed by the iso as a bootable hybrid ntfs and leaves the remainder as free space that can be mounted. Every release from this point will have a isohybrid clone. Traditional .iso burn just partitions the entire USB and dumped the iso inside - why USB installation worked fine but live boot was broken. The issue was not the burn, the .iso needed the hybrid conversion for USB live boot ~

    I used standard Ubuntu "startup disk creator" or - right click *.iso and select open with "disk image writer" also - depending on your bios you need to disable UEFI or enable legacy boot.

    1.) Unmount, wipe partition and format USB device.

    2.) Using (for me) Ubuntu startup disk creator, burn TinyPaw_v1.1.1_hybrid.iso to USB device.

    3.) After .iso is burned you should see a bootable ntfs partition on your USB device. *see following post*

    4.) Inserted bootable USB device in my laptop USB2.0 port and verified legacy boot is enabled.

    5.) Booted laptop but halted boot process and selected "generic usb flash disk" from boot menu.
    *manually, on my system it refuses to auto-boot from USB, but selecting it manually functions just fine*

    6.) TinyPaw_v1.1.1 booted successfully in both "LIVE" and "Installer" modes.
