launch a ISO?
Hello, how do I launch a linux based ISO
which I have just uploaded to the root
directory in my server. Thank you.
@g7kdz-joe uploading the ISO to the root directory of your server won't allow you to use it the way you want to. You need to mount it in a very specific way.
Have a look at this tutorial - it explains all the steps you need to take:
The first step would be to find out if your Linode is using KVM or Xen for its kernel. If you are a new customer, it is most likely you are using KVM but it's always worth it to double check. You can read more about KVM and Xen virtualization technologies here:
To verify, check the naming convention of the block devices. Device assignments for Xen Linodes were labeled as:
/dev/xvda /dev/xvdb /dev/xvdc
KVM Linodes use the “sd” naming convention:
/dev/sda /dev/sdb /dev/sdc
If you’re currently running a Xen Linode, you can upgrade to KVM, or follow our older guide on Running a Custom Linux Distribution on a Xen Linode.
If you are running KVM, you can follow our guide here:
You can also find all of our supported operating systems on our web page.
Our guide on deploying a supported operating system can be found below. This can be done completely from the Linode Manager.
