I recently got a new hard drive and I want to install fedora to it however the computer is old and can't boot from usb and I am unable to use a dvd.
I want to use my currently installed fedora to install a new copy on the new hard drive.
I have the ISO with me.I am using the latest distro
Are there any ways I can achieve this? Thanks in advance!
There is a way to boot an iso with syslinux
just for example from my syslinux.cfg,
LABEL slitaz.iso LINUX memdisk INITRD /slitaz.iso APPEND iso
in the example, the iso (
slitaz.iso) is in the root (
/). I cannot tell on oath that will work for your iso, but you can try.
I did that too with grub,
setparams 'ISO' set iso ="/slitaz.iso" loopback loop $iso linux (loop)/boot/vmlinuz-3.2.53-slitaz initrd (loop)/boot/rootfs.gz
the two lines with (loop) are the one you can found inside your iso.
I don't remember if I had to install or set something for one or both cases.
