I just tried to install openSUSE onto a USB stick using a netinstall image on another stick. (the destination stick is not inserted at the time the problem happens).
The installation medium was created on unix using a checksum-verified image and dd.
When trying to start the installation process, after establishing a network connection, I get the message
To use the selected repository a matching boot image is needed. Download it now and restart?
. Proceeding to do so, I get prompted the message
Installation system does not match your boot medium. Sorry, this will not work.
. The “repository” (upon inspection) is set to
Googling the error, it seems that there is a mismatch of linuxrc initrd ID and initsys ID and on the “beta” system 15.1 RC, InstsysComplain is set to 2 (?) and therefore I get the message. After some experimenting (I tried to set InstsysComplain to 0), I think I got into the actual installer, but I didn’t think it was smart to proceed that way.
Why do I get the message in the first place? Could it be that the installer is missmatching due to the internal hard drive (which is running windows), eventhough that hard drive is not supposed to be used in the installation at all?
Thanks for any help.
