Install Zentyal from USB drive
« on: 2013-07-17, 16:47 »
Zentyal does have A "PROBLEM" in it's installer (since the 'old ebox days')
"Right after keyboard identification the installer insists on accessing the cdrom"  :-[ ...and the stick is (mostly) /dev/sdb1)

I am currently installing Zentyal 3.0 from a USB-stick, and had the same problem with the installer insisting on accessing the CD-rom. This worked for me:
  • Get the zentyal iso
  • Create a bootable USB drive with UNETbootin or LiLi
  • Copy the downloaded zentyal iso to the bootable USB and name it zen.iso
  • eject USB and insert into target computer, run install until fail
  • in the installer menu, choose the enter a shell option
  • run the following cmds (where /dev/sdc1 should be your usb device)
    umount /cdrom
    mkdir /mnt/usb
    mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/usb
    mount -o loop /mnt/usb/zen.iso /cdrom
  • rerun the Detect and mount CDrom option
  • done  8)
