    Greetings to all.
    I pray and I am sorry my English truth is that I do not speak English nor anything Italian.
    I am a user of zeroshell and wanted them to know that I could install the version 1.0.beta10 in a scsi hdd and wanted to share this with everyone.

    I’m from Venezuela.

    On SCSI hard disks you can store the profile, but you can boot from it.
    SATA hard disks are instead supported for boot.

    step 1: install zeroshell on your scsi disk.

    step 2: Boot from a linux live cd (ex slax linux)

    step 3: Mark /dev/sda1 as Bootable ( ex sfdisk )

    step 4: Mount /dev/sda1 in any directory (ex mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/tmp )

    step 5: cd /mnt ; cp initrd.gz /tmp; cd /tmp; gunzip initrd.gz; mount -o loop initrd /tmp/memory

    step 6: copy from zeroshell live cd these files.
    cp /media/CDROM/modules/2.6.25.17/kernel/drivers/scsi/scsi* /mnt/tmp/lib/sata/deps/
    cp /media/CDROM/modules/2.6.25.17/kernel/drivers/scsi/aic7xxx/aic7* /mnt/tmp/lib/sata/chipsets/

    step 7: Umount your initrd (ex umount /tmp/memory)

    step 8: cd /tmp; gzip initrd; cd .. ; umount /mnt/tmp; reboot

    step 9: Boot from your scsi disk

    Note: I used a aic7 scsi chipsets. For another chipsets you must copy other files.

    Juz wondering if that is a way to flash the zeroshell images into a thumbdrive like a dongle. Because i always use 2nd hand hardisk to install zeroshell and the hardisk always spoiled. So i would like to know if that’s anyway for me to flash it into a thumdrive as it is also quite convenience for me. Please help.. I really desperate to know it. thank you

    Could you post the specific command you used for each step. I tried to follow your procedure and it didn’t work for me.

    Thanks,
