Make install full automatic

Post#1 by bejesv » 09 Apr 2019, 13:41

Hello,

is there a way to make a custom iso that installs automatically? Burn the path of config file, default network settings and default disk to install to it? So users just insert the installation media into the pc, start it, and does everything from the config burnt into it, and load every other setting from server. Could you please tell me the way it can be done, if it is possible?

Thank you.

Hi bejesv,

You would need to generate your ISO in the wizard then save it on the usb stick instead of burning:

Once you get your pre-configured ISO you could boot any linux and script automatic installation, it is one liner:

Code: Select all

dd < kiosk.iso > /dev/sda
Mind the /dev/sda (first hard/SSD drive) could be /dev/mmcblk0p1 (eMMC) or /dev/nvme0p1 (nvme) depending on the storage type used.
In case of troubles please contact with builds@porteus-kiosk.org

Thanks

Is there a way to fully automate? The aim is to make install easier for users. The scripting option you mentioned seems more complicated than visual ui install.
