Where’s the trick to install ZS on harddisk ? I have tried doing this according to the manual of Christian Colombini but this does not work.
I have even deleted all partitions from the disk and created new ones with
gparted (boot, data and swap)
I think the problem is that the disk is not made bootable but how can I do this ?
Thank you for your hints in advance

You can either copy it with
gunzip -c zeroshell.img.gz>/dev/sda
Both should work, no need to do anything on the disk beforehand.July 7, 2010 at 2:04 pm #50657
Thank you very much but whatever tip I have tried so far the box is refusing to boot.
I have tried Win Image and Physdiskwrite as well as mentioned in other forum posts but I cannot boot from my S-ATA HDD.
I am using a Intel Atom 330 box, 2 Nic’s, 2 Gig RAM and a 80 GByte
samsung S-ATA HDD.
I’ve been testing for 2 weeks but I’d like to use the Proxy feature and so a HDD install is much better I guessJuly 7, 2010 at 3:51 pm #50658
Proxy feature is not caching something on the disk. You can always run from the CD and use the hard disk to store the profiles and the logs.
I don’t think that I have ever tried with windows tools, so I strongly suggest using a linux live cd to copy the file on the HDD with one of the above commands.July 7, 2010 at 4:14 pm #50659
Thank you but yes, I have tried the live CD and the procedure described many times in the manuals but the box is refusing to boot.
In order to exclude that there is something wrong with the HDD I have even changed it and I even wiped the original one using Dban to start from the scratch.
I get absolutely no error messages during the copy/install process and
as soon as I reboot it does not work any more. I mean the box tries to
boot from CD which I have removed according to the manual, then from LAN and then… nothing
Maybe this is related to my hardware ?July 8, 2010 at 1:40 pm #50660
In the BIOS I hope you have enabled the hard disk to be able to boot.July 8, 2010 at 6:17 pm #50661
I could not install the beta13 release hard disk, I get error on boot, I did months ago with the release beta12 and it worked well .. someone can tell me q’s on?July 8, 2010 at 6:50 pm #50662
Yes of course, the HDD is enabled and configured to boot firstJuly 8, 2010 at 7:40 pm #50663
If it doesn’t even show the grub screen, then for some reason the disk doesn’t seem to be written correctly. If you see error after the grub, maybe the sata controller is not supported in the kernel.
I haven’t tried beta13 yet (nor will I until August with my tight schedule) so I don’t know if it is a problem of the specific image.July 15, 2010 at 7:01 am #50664
must be because the beta12 worked perfectlyJuly 20, 2010 at 7:12 pm #50665
My computer would start booting off the hard drive, then couldn’t find the drive to continue booting after the initial boot messages displayed.
( I posted this in 2008.)
I had trouble booting the SATA drive on my 1U server. I tried a lot of CMOS settings for the drive and other hardware configs and nothing fixed it.
Finally, moving the drive to SATA channel 2 instead of 1 allowed it to boot as if it was an ATA drive. That works.July 21, 2010 at 8:43 am #50666
In my case I had to manually add the sata driver to the cdrom so it was able to recognize the drive.
Basically I had to unpack initrd and add this driver. I looked the details somewhere on the forum.

I am having the same problem after writing the image to the hard drive.
I get to see only: ‘grub’ (without the quotes) at the upper left corner and nothing more. It just stay there.July 23, 2010 at 1:15 pm #50668
I have the same problem. After instalation and restarting I have:
Grub error 17July 23, 2010 at 2:14 pm #50669
I tried again but this time following Cristian Colombini instructions at http://digilander.libero.it/smasherdevourer/schede/linux/Zeroshell%20su%20HD-EN.pdf
The only different this time is that I followed the exact instructions:
root@zeroshell root> cd /mnt/
root@zeroshell mnt> mkdir chiavetta
root@zeroshell mnt> ls
root@zeroshell mnt> cd /
root@zeroshell /> mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/chiavetta
root@zeroshell /> cd /mnt/chiavetta
root@zeroshell chiavetta> gunzip -c zeroshell.img.gz>/dev/hda
instead of using the /mnt/loop1 as in the other instructions
Wish I knew what was the problem. I am not good in Italian but may be chiavetta made the trick:-)
