Thread: boot factory boot.iso into 64bit?

    Default boot factory boot.iso into 64bit?

    Hi there,

    is it somehow possible to boot the boot.iso with a 64bit kernel to install a 64 bit version?

    Our hardware (FSC Blade) can't boot into Live system because of not recognized graphics capabilities. So the installation is always in text mode.

    But I didn't manage to get a 64bit version installed but only the 32bit version.

    Is there a name for a 64bit kernel in syslinux? Or how can I tell the installation program to install a 64bit system?

    Thanks
    Lars

    I don't think the RC is available outside of a Live CD. I suppose you could install 10.3 and use factory to get to the latest RC and beyond. Have you tried booting into VESA for the graphics problem? I haven't tried that on a live CD but I suppose it should be possible.

    Hallo Harry,

    thanks for the quick reply.
    I don't have much hope to get the vesa mode working because even syslinux falls back to text mode.

    But I'll try and report.

    Thanks

    Hallo Harry,

    I couldn't get the kernel to boot into any VESA mode. It just tells me it would be not available.

    It seems I have to wait for the release.

    Thanks
    Lars
