mic-livecd-iso-to-disk - Convert a livecd image to a live USB image then write to a USB disk or partition SYNOPSIS
mic-livecd-iso-to-disk [--reset-mbr] [--noverify] [--overlay-size-mb <size>] [--home-size-mb <size>] [--unencrypted-home] <isopath> [usbstick device] <isopath> is your livecd image path name, [usbstick device] is optional, if not provided, it will detect automatically and ask you to select. DESCRIPTION
mic-livecd-iso-to-disk can convert a livecd image to a live USB image and write it to a USB disk or partition, it is different from mic- image-writer which is just a safer dd with progress bar. mic-livecd-iso-to-disk can detect all the removable USB disks and let you select one of them, if you didn't insert any USB disk, it will ask you to insert until a USB disk is available, it can decide if your USB disk need to be formated and if your USB disk has an appropriate partition for this livecd image, all the operations are interactive and have warnings f they will damage your old data on your USB disk. mic-image-manager has a GUI tool for it. OPTIONS
--reset-mbr Set MBR on your USB disk --noverify Don't verify your livecd image --overlay-size-mb Specify overlay size, the default size is 64 MB --home-size-mb Specify home size, the default is 0 EXAMPLES
Write a Molib live image to your USB disk: mic-livecd-iso-to-disk your-2.1-final.img EXIT STATUS
mic-livecd-iso-to-disk returns a zero exist status if it succeeds, otherwise return non-zero and print error message. AUTHOR

livemedia-creator - Create live install media SYNOPSIS
livemedia-creator [-h] (--make-iso | --make-disk | --make-fsimage | --make-appliance | --make-ami) [--iso ISO] [--disk-image DISK_IMAGE] [--fs-image FS_IMAGE] [--ks KS] [--image-name IMAGE_NAME] [--image-only] [--keep-image] [--no-virt] [--proxy PROXY] [--anaconda-arg ANACONDA_ARGS] [--armplatform ARMPLATFORM] [--location LOCATION] [--logfile LOGFILE] [--lorax-templates LORAX_TEMPLATES] [--tmp TMP] [--resultdir RESULT_DIR] [--app-name APP_NAME] [--app-template APP_TEMPLATE] [--app-file APP_FILE] [--ram MEMORY] [--vcpus VCPUS] [--vnc VNC] [--arch ARCH] [--kernel-args KERNEL_ARGS] [--dracut-arg DRACUT_ARGS] [--title TITLE] [--project PROJECT] [--releasever RELEASEVER] [--volid VOLID] [--squashfs_args SQUASHFS_ARGS] DESCRIPTION
livemedia-creator uses Anaconda, kickstart and Lorax to create bootable media that use the same install path as a normal system install. It can be used to make live isos, bootable (partitioned) disk images and filesystem images for use with virtualization. The general idea is to use virt-install to install into a disk image and then use the disk image to create the bootable media. livemedia-creator --help will describe all of the options available. At the minimum you need: --make-iso to create a final bootable .iso --iso to specify the Anaconda install media to use with virt-install --ks is the kickstart to use to install the system OPTIONAL ARGUMENTS
: -h, --help show this help message and exit --make-iso Build a live iso --make-disk Build a partitioned disk image --make-fsimage Build a filesystem image --make-appliance Build an appliance image and XML description --make-ami Build an ami image --iso ISO Anaconda installation .iso path to use for virt-install --disk-image DISK_IMAGE Path to disk image to use for creating final image --fs-image FS_IMAGE Path to filesystem image to use for creating final image --ks KS Kickstart file defining the install. --image-name IMAGE_NAME Name of fs/disk image to create. Default is a random name. --image-only Exit after creating fs/disk image. --keep-image Keep raw disk image after .iso creation --no-virt Use Anaconda's image install instead of virt-install --proxy PROXY proxy URL to use for the install --anaconda-arg ANACONDA_ARGS Additional argument to pass to anaconda (no-virt mode). Pass once for eachargument --armplatform ARMPLATFORM the platform to use when creating images for ARM, i.e., highbank, mvebu, omap,tegra, etc. --location LOCATION location of iso directory tree with initrd.img and vmlinuz. Used to run virt-install with a newer initrd than the iso. --logfile LOGFILE Path to logfile --lorax-templates LORAX_TEMPLATES Path to mako templates for lorax --tmp TMP Top level temporary directory --resultdir RESULT_DIR Directory to copy the resulting images and iso into. Defaults to the temporaryworking directory --title TITLE Substituted for @TITLE@ in bootloader config files --project PROJECT substituted for @PROJECT@ in bootloader config files --releasever RELEASEVER substituted for @VERSION@ in bootloader config files --volid VOLID volume id --squashfs_args SQUASHFS_ARGS additional squashfs args APPLIANCE ARGUMENTS
: --app-name APP_NAME Name of appliance to pass to template --app-template APP_TEMPLATE Path to template to use for appliance data. --app-file APP_FILE Appliance template results file. VIRT-INSTALL ARGUMENTS: --ram MEMORY Memory to allocate for installer in megabytes. --vcpus VCPUS Passed to --vcpus command --vnc VNC Passed to --graphics command --arch ARCH Passed to --arch command --kernel-args KERNEL_ARGS Additional argument to pass to the installation kernel DRACUT ARGUMENTS
: --dracut-arg DRACUT_ARGS Argument to pass to dracut when rebuilding the initramfs. Pass this once foreach argument. NOTE: this overrides the default. SEE ALSO
