    Moving a Live-CD to your harddisk


    I am trying to install ThinStation on my hard disk, unfortunately its turning into a real pain.

    That said, the LiveCD works perfectly and does what I want it to do. Is there a way that I can simply move the Live CD image to my boot harddisk so that it boots up with the same setup etc as the Live-CD

    Hello and Welcome!

    I don't think ThinStation is really intended to be a primary desktop OS. It's primarily a Thin Client for use in businesses or office environments. But if you're trying to install, I did find this How-To.

    Hi.. yes you are right things aren't that simple. I've done the fresh build to a hard disk using the instructions as you've point out but the final image wasn't that simple to get working.

    The reason I posted this is that I've had other LiveCDs in the past that have worked well and I've thought wouldn't it be great if I could just transfer this image to my hard disk and voila it would all work just fine.... not sure if I'm making any sense.....
