Use Winhiip to install linux on internal hdd? –
just wondered whether it ist possible to use winhiip to install linux onto a internal hdd? Would be great to take a hdd connect it to your pc and use winhiip or alike tool to copy the newest linux built onto the hdd and then start it via kernelloader or even hdloader?!?
This is an interesting idea. The Linux partitions are not recognised by hdloader. So I think they are also not recognised by Winhiip. The program apascan is able to read the installed games of hdloader as ISO. It could be possible that partitions formated with a Linux filesystem over apascan can be processed by Winhiip. This is all theory and nothing tested.
apascan will only work with Linux 2.6 or higher which is available, but the current downloads don't include devicemapper support.
I was more thinking about copying the live dvd with winhiip to the harddisc. I just realized that it would not boot from within the hdloader menu or would it? That way we could use old fat PS2 with broken dvd drives.
No, you need to use it the way it was designed for. The hdloader needs the PS2 OS and Linux is a different OS. Installing Linux on the hard disc has advantages compared to the Live DVD. Technically there is no need to use your way, even when you don't have DVD drive.
