Hi All,

This is my first post on hak5, loving it so far :) I'm hoping you guys can help me out on this irrating issue, and I seem to be going around in circles (or loosing the plot).

My Dir Structure is as follows (I have copied to my desktop as I need to take the drive else where):

Volume in drive C has no label.
 Volume Serial Number is 9088-FB2F

My menu.lst is:

color blue/black yellow/blue
timeout 140

title Restore 6910p
root (hd0,0)
kernel /bootclone/live/vmlinuz1 boot=live union=aufs ip=frommedia live-media-path=/bootclone/live vga=791 toram bootfrom=/dev/sda5 noprompt noprompt ocs_live_run="/bootclone/live/6910pTest" ocs_live_extra_param="" ocs_live_keymap="NONE" ocs_live_batch="yes" ocs_lang="en_US.UTF-8" vga=791 nolocales 

initrd /boot/live/initrd1.img

boot

I am now able to boot 'Restore 6910p' and clonezilla will load and try to load the 6910ptest script. However it cannot find it. Where would I need to copy this to? Does grub simply load an image file, and then all files that are called are within that image?

Apologies for sounding a little daft, I am still new to this linux/booting side of things lol

Your help will be much appreciated :)

Thanks

Paul

Hi H@L0_00,

thanks for the tree for windows apps, I will use that in the future :)

As for clonezilla, I haven't tried mapping the ISO, I am guessing that will be done using Grub2?

The 'Restore 6910p' is just a menu entry in grub. When you select that, it boots clonezilla, and tells it to run 6910ptest script. Whenever you tell clonezilla to run a script, it looks in this /live/image/live directory.

Ok, what you need to do, then, is move your /bootclone/live directory to the root of the device, so it would be just /live unless you'd like to try and edit the scripts. I don't use CloneZilla, but you could get an idea of how to go about editing scripts by taking a look at my Ophcrack guide where I edited the scripts to look for the Ophcrack tables in a different directory. You'd have to figure out which script is the one that tells CloneZilla to look in /live/image/live and make it look in /bootclone/live/image/live in order for it to find the scripts you'd like to keep in that directory. Grep can come in handy (something like " grep -r -i '/live/image/live' * " after extracting the initrd file might come up with some results you could take a look at).

Thanks again :) It turns out that /live/image/live was actually mounting to /bootclone (a simple ls helped me find this lol, amazing what a nights sleep can do).

I have no created a nested menu that lets you automatically deploy clonezilla images :)

Thanks
