Usb install


#1

Hello,

I have some problem installing freebpx on my hp7900.
For the installation i used the tutorial from: http://www.objectpac.com/2012/11/19/of-centos-and-freepbx-part-1-bootable-usb/ AND http://www.objectpac.com/2012/11/20/of-centos-and-freepbx-part-2-wheres-the-ui/

The only problem i have is installing the ui from pbx.
Happens when i start the /etc/pbx_first_boot.sh.
I get a error: Some firstboot error occured, and the system is not properly setup. Check to see if you have internet access and re-run /etc/pbx_first_boot.sh.

if i check the ifconfig i see that the eth0 revices packets only the lo recives 0.

Can somebody maby help me a little bit?

Thank you.

That article is a bit dated, we now offer a USB ISO for installation purposes http://schmoozecom.com/distro-download.php, the best source for information on the FreePBX Distro is our wiki visit wiki.freepbx.org.

Well i tried to do the usb install from this page: http://wiki.freepbx.org/display/FD/Converting+the+USB+.img+file+to+boot but after the converting when im trying to open the usb it tell’s me that it needs to be formated and the boot on the computer is not working.

I can’t understand i also did everything from this page http://wiki.freepbx.org/display/FD/Converting+the+USB+.img+file+to+boot i tried to do it on a windows computer and a mac both are not working. I boot the hp dc7900 with the usb nothing happens.

Before install the diskutil looks like this:
/dev/disk1
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: FDisk_partition_scheme *2.0 GB disk1
1: DOS_FAT_32 BOOTUSB 2.0 GB disk1s1

After the install it looks like this:
/dev/disk1
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: FDisk_partition_scheme *2.0 GB disk1
1: *2.0 GB disk1

The code i used to install:
imac-van-nick:~ nickswart$ sudo dd if=Desktop/back/freebxp.img of=/dev/disk1s1

I also tried to do the install on the disk1:
imac-van-nick:~ nickswart$ sudo dd if=Desktop/back/freebxp.img of=/dev/disk1

Than the list looks like this:

/dev/disk1
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: *2.0 GB disk1

Six years later? I’m pretty sure the “boot from USB” thing has been looked at.
