Don't have dvd burner,Can't boot usb,howto install? [Solved]

Post by nikhil » Wed Mar 31, 2010 10:20

i don't have a dvd burner and my system doesn't boot from usb.
how can i install sabayon??
i've downloaded the 5.2 x86 KDE edition.

i have arch linux installed with grub 2 as the boot loader
i came across http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1224417 and veriefied the same for the linux mint 8 fluxbox iso i had on my pc.

i would like to know what are the specific boot options that can help me run the sabayon live dvd from grub2 and then install it.

thanks for your responses guys
i'll try this one
http://wiki.sabayonlinux.org/index.php? ... _The_Image

if it fails i'll ask one of my friends to write it for me.
i'm a poor chap cant order stuff over the internet. :oops:

if anyone knows the boot options to boot directly from grub 2
let me know too that'd be awesome
i'll try out a few and post back if i have ant success.
