Installing Knoppix

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Kevin Buthorn, Jan 30, 2004.

  1. I recently installed a new hard drive to replace the primary master which
    crashed. I downloaded Knoppix so that I can attempt to recover data from
    the old drive.
    I am running windows xp.
    I am unable to open Knoppix from windows. I don't know how to burn knoppix
    to a cd and install it. Idid copy the downloaded file to a cd, but am
    unable to open it.
    Any help will be appreciated.

    if you downloaded and iso
    your cd burning software should have the option to create a cd from the iso

  3. That's right.
    Use Nero or Roxio (burn from image options) to create a CD from the
    downloaded ISO image.
    Nope that won't work.
    Knoppix is a self-booting and configuring Linux system, no installation
    required. Runs totally from the CD, but will access your Windows

    CD burning software will be required.

    Instructions are at below link;
    See heading 'ISO Burning Instructions' and select your burner-software.

    If your filesystem is not NTFS, all you need is a win98 or dos boot floppy
    to access the old hard drive.

    Nope, I've tried to open Knoppix download in Windows 2000, doesn't work. Quite a few free CD burners available on web. Consider installing a dual-boot system so you can (nearly) always get your data off. To get out of the fix install an operating system with the same file system (FAT16, 32 or Ntfs) onto a fresh HD and set your non-bootable HD to slave. This may be easier than using Knoppix as you are familiar with Windows methods of transferring files. Searching Microsoft site for 'Knoppix' interestingly found no matches .....surprise,surprise.
