    Default 10.3 upgrade 11 using live CD

    I am running 10.3 and have burned the 11.0 gnome live image to CD. I boot using the live CD and then select the live installer. I am not presented the option to perform an upgrade, it wants to format my existing partition. Anyway around this? The PC I have does not have a DVD drive. Thanks

    I had a similar post, same situation non upgradable drive thanks agian to John for setting the record straight, the live cd install instructions need to have this removed if it is no longer supported.

    Here is the work around.

    No base 11 cd and no update option from the Live cd After trial and error I downloaded the 11 net install cd and booted, noted it did have an upgrade option. Had already downloaded the 11 dvd and used it to upgrade my notebook successfully. I got a usb drive and copied the entire contents of the dvd to a folder "openSUSE". I booted from the net cd as the pc could not connect to the network, wifi not supported. I noted the cd went into manual mode and gave me the option select a hard drive location for the repository. Did a reboot from the cd and as it was rebooting connected the usb drive and it mounted that as well during the boot. When the install went to manual mode I selected the mounted Windows usb drive, for the directory prompt I entered /openSUSE. The net install cd used the usb drive as its source and upgraded the pc to 11
