Miscellaneous News   Miscellaneous News : Icaros Desktop on a pendrive how-to
   posted by paolone on 12-Jun-2010 22:38:53 (2707 reads)
A new document has been published on the Icaros Website. It explains how to create a bootable AROS pendrive using the recently released Icaros Desktop 1.2.2 update disc. The resulting pendrive can be used both to boot the system (on motherboards which allow booting from this kind of devices), and to install Icaros on the hard drive (like live CD/DVDs). It may be good to use or install the distribution on laptops without a optical drive, like netbooks and many "light" notebooks, or to allow booting AROS on systems with unsupported devices or controllers. Instructions are available in PDF format, so you'll need Adobe Acrobat or a compatible reader to view them, like for instance ArosPDF.

Thanks for the guide.

What is the controller used for the hard drive? Remember you just have to free some space on the drive and let InstallAROS do the rest. Alternatively, you can just use a good USB pendrive as AROS disc. It should be good enough and let you modify and save files as you wish.
