Boot Managers / Re: How to boot linux partitions on external USB HDD
« Last post by Elmar on May 29, 2018, 14:48:36 PM »
I assume, its a standard hard disk installation and not a live installation on your USB hard disk.

Plop Boot Manager: The problem is, that your computer seems to use an internal USB hub, witch is not supported by the 5.x release.

Plopkexec: I assume, you use grub2 as boot manager on the USB drive. grub2 config files are not well supported by plopkexec. You should create a custom plopkexec.cfg file with kernel and initrd configuration in syslinux format.

Boot Managers / How to boot linux partitions on external USB HDD
« Last post by adamjr on May 29, 2018, 14:02:59 PM »
I am trying to boot my external USB HDD, but I tried Plop Boot Manager and PlopKexec and both seem to detect the device but not find the partitions?
The error message is "No HD", (both EHCI and UHCI)
When I put the HDD inside the laptop instead of in the USB case I can still use it.
I can read all the data on the USB HDD with debian (I didn't try mounting the device with the Plop live, should I do that?)
Thanks for writing by the way.  Your work is a positive contribution to the world.

Numbers 1 and 3 are linux root partitions:
Code: [Select]
Model: Initio ST9500420AS (scsi)
Disk /dev/sdb: 500GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: msdos
Disk Flags:

Number  Start   End     Size    Type      File system     Flags
 3      38.2GB  96.4GB  58.2GB  extended                  lba
 5      53.2GB  96.4GB  43.2GB  logical   ext4
 1      96.4GB  182GB   85.9GB  primary   ext4            boot
 2      182GB   187GB   4293MB  primary   linux-swap(v1)
 4      187GB   500GB   314GB   primary   ext4

I want to keep the initramfs.gz as small as possible.

Great :)

Release will be in the next days.

But you will still need a custom initramfs.gz, because the firmware folder is not in this file of the official release.

If it's possible, then yes please a kernel and initramfs. :)
Then i can test it.

You are right, bnx2 has to be compiled into the kernel which is not done at the moment. Noted, for the next release.

Summarize requirements:
bnx2 builtin the kernel
firmware in initramfs.gz

Do you need a prepared kernel/initramfs.gz?

Thx for fast response!

This was the first thing i tested, but it has NOT worked.
I think the problem is that in kernel config the bnx2 is loaded as module and not direct in the kernel (bnx2=m but should be bnx2=y).
Can this be?
BTW: During PXE-Boot i don't see a message telling me that firmware is missing.
