Title: [SOLVED] How to install VL7 Soho?
Post by: Chdslv on June 02, 2012, 02:45:18 am
I have downloaded both CD1 and CD2.
Do I have to merge the two CDs or do I use the CD1 and then the other?
How do I merge the two CDs?
I have burned CD1 to a USB stick with Unetbootin, but it won't boot.
It says that it cannot find isolinux/init.lz, but it is there.

Use CD1 first and then the install routine will prompt you to put in CD2. Its much easier to install from CD's if you have that option.

Rename isolinux/init.lz to isolinux/init.gz in the usb, Unetbootin expects gzip but we use lzma.

The only way I've found to install Soho via USB stick, either with or without unetbootin is described in this video
Save the cd's put VL installer to a USB drive (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLyunRJsrVU)
