    Exclamation backtrack 2 hdd tutorial

    hello,
    thanks to the videotutorial from the friendly people of remote exploit i've had the chance to install backtrack next to windows xp. Because i think it's a great tutorial but the video sucks up bandwidth i have written it in a text file.

    here it is:

    Code:
    Backtrack hdd install
    
    preparing the harddisk
    
    backup every data before your start
    
    login to backtrack with the live cd version 2.0 (i didn't try it with a 1.0 version but followed the video where this tutorial is based upon).
    this tutorial is for the people who don't have a lot of bandwith (left).
    
    first login, otherwise you can't work (obvious!!!).
    
    start shell console and type:
    
    type mount to see what devices are mounted right now.
    You need this to see wich hard drive is mounted to unmount it to get qparted to partition your drive 
    
    so for example (in my case) it was like this
    umount /mnt/sda
    
    now let's start qtparted to partition our drive
    
    type qtparted in the shellconsole to start qtparted
    
    you can make partitions smaller with qtparted or if you've got a free partition left you can 
    format that in any filesystem (like ntfs) you like.
    
    to get the changes working you need to commit them to the disk.
    
    go to file and then commit to get the changes to be affective.
    
    now quit qtparted because you won't be needing it anymore.
    
    we use fdisk to create our new partitions on the new partition.
    
    you can create 3 partitions like in the video (if you have seen it, but I made it work with only one. so I will teach you how to do it with one.)
    
    fdisk (to get fdisk working)
    
    then he/she askes for a command
    
    we choose p to view the partitions
    
    then you can see the partitions there are on the harddisk.
    
    then use the second command: n (for a new partition)
    
    then p (for primary)
    
    number 2
    
    just press enter for the next question because we will use the default (easy isn't it?)
    
    
    you need to write to changes to disk and this is done by the command W (for write).
    
    if you get an error that tells you to reboot your system just do it because it will probably be using the old partition table and wants to load the
    new one. you can pick up on the next phase of the tutorial
    
    
    you need to set up a ext2 filesystem for your harddisk 
    this is done by the following command:
    
    mke2fs /dev/hda2
    
    copying the files
    
    now we got our filesystems ready we can start installing backtrack (yippie the fun part).
    
    we will now be copying the files from the live cd into the directories it needs (we have to create them first off course).
    
    mkdir /mnt/backtrack  (to create the directory)
    mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/backtrack (to mount the created directory on the partition on the harddisk, change the device name to your device name (e.g. sda2 to hda2 for example).
     
    mkdir /mnt/backtrack/boot (to create the boot directory)
    mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/backtrack/boot (to mount the boot directory)
    
    now we need to copy the files to the harddisk partition.
    
    type this in exactly as it is here (but with your directory) because otherwise It will go wrong.
    
    cp --preserve -R /{bin, dev, home, pentest, root, usr, etc, lib, opt, sbin, var} /mnt/backtrack
    
    now this may take a while because it's copying a whole dvd of software to your hdd. at my pc it took about 30 minutes.
    
    now we make our temporary directories
    
    mdir /mnt/backtrack/{mnt, proc, sys, tmp}
    
    mount --bind /dev/ /mnt/backtrack/dev/
    
    mount -t proc proc /mnt/backtrack/proc/
    
    as the last thing we need to copy, we copy the kernel in the boot directory:
    
    cp /boot/vmlinuz /mnt/backtrack/boot
    
    now we chroot in our new installation:
    
    chroot /mnt/backtrack/ /bin/bash/
    
    now we need to config our lilo.conf. file
    
    i'm sorry but I can't show you how it looks like but I will type how it should look like.
    
    
    the command to change the lilo.conf file is this:
    nano /etc/lilo.conf
    
    every line starting with # is a comment line and can be deleted. (BE SURE NOT TO DELETE ANY LINES WITHOUT IT).
    
    your lilo.conf file should look like this:
    
    
    lba32 # allow booting past 1024th cylinder with recent bios
    boot = /dev/sda
    # message=/boot/boot_message.txt
    prompt
    timeout = 1200
    change-rules
    reset
    vga=791
    
    # Linux bootable partition config begins
    image = /boot/vmlinuz
    root = /dev/sda2
    label = Linux #(you can change this to wathever you like, e.g. backtrack for example).
    read-only
    # Linux bootable partition config ends
    
    other = /dev/sda1
    label = windows
    table = /dev/sda
    
    save this config file and then start lilo by the next command
    
    lilo -v
    
    then reboot your machine and cross your fingers.

    Nice of you to go to the effort of doing this and thank you for doing so, especially for your first post.

    But someone has already beaten you to it

    But don't be downhearted, I'm sure people will find it useful too, and the combination of reading both will probably answer some peoples queries.

    Then again,.....it could just add mass confusion to the masses!

    You know how some of our "Special" members are.


    But yes. Definitely very nice of you to post cirrus. Some people don't even know what the wiKi is..so they'd never look there for a transcript of the video..lol. But they can get it here now.

    I have the problem with booting BT2. I was follow step by step from link u have gave but this is the 3 times I have same problem with "booting" from HDD, aslway say "Operating System not found".

    Just For Information I just Install with no other OS and I just change little lilo configuration, like this:

    First conf:
    message = /boot/boot_message.txt

    second conf:
    #message = /boot/boot_message.txt

    (I just put "#" in front of the text to make that command just a text).
