Backtrack Automated Download and Installation on USB stick using Windows


I have coded this over the past few days. A GUI for downloading and installing BT2 to a usb stick, flash card or usb hd in a way that the king of newbeez can do it so if your interested in this freeware, here is the link, feel free to ask questions, feedback welcome.....: Welcome to BackTrack 2 USB 4 WIN

1)What the hell is it ?"

Backtrack Live Install, Dual Boot from Grub

"This is another method to create a live install of BackTrack 3 on your HD. The need for this was that an install of BT was required for a machine with only 4gb of disk space and that it also needed to be dual booted with another linux distro from grub. This is a very simple live install with no persistancy. it has been done on an eeepc." (scroll down)

Backtrack Live Install with Changes, Swap and Data Partition

"This question or a question related to part of this gets asked so many times, but people seem unable to find it where I originally posted it.


Most of this is aimed at a USB HDD but it should be obvious from this how to adapt it for a USB pendrive, stick, flash drive or whatever else you like to call them.

Ok so this is how I do a live install with changes, swap and data partitions."

Make a BackTrack2 USB Stick

"NOTE: This procedure works on the IRC Addict Pre-Release BT2 and the final release, but it does not work on sidc and earlier versions

1. Open the backtrack.iso file:

Option 1. In Windows, use a program such as isobuster
Option 2. In Backtrack, mount the iso
(mount -o loop -t iso9660 yourcd.iso /mnt/iso)
Option 3. In OSX, mount the iso

2. Extract and copy the /boot and /BT folders from the iso to the USB flash stick

3. Make the USB Stick bootable: "

xPUD 0.7

"xPUD is a small Linux distribution which contains only web browser and media player. It's been optimized for USB pendrive with "Boot-Gear" fast booting method, easy-to-use "Plate" user interface and "Opt-Get" software module mechanism.

Inquisitor 3.0 final

Inquisitor is a mature hardware diagnostics, stress testing, certification and monitoring platform, running on GNU/Linux. It's suitable for both enterprise and home use, customizable, modular and available in standalone version, server-controlled network boot production system and serverless Live CD format.

Inquisitor team is pleased to announce Inquisitor v3.0 — a first major open-source version of the platform. After initial announcement of Inquisitor branch 3.x in August 2007, it's a fruit of almost a year of labor.

Inquisitor version 3 is a major redesign of older 1.x and 2.x systems.

New features:

  • Modularity: it consists of dozens of interconnected and interchangeable modules with well-defined API; one can easily add new modules to add new tests, detections, production steps, etc.
  • Three varieties: standalone (runs on top of already installed OS), live CD (can be used to analyse/test just one home computer), enterprise (server-controller network boot).
  • Flexibility: every test parameter can be adjusted, all system can be customized.
  • Server-controlled testing: server-based version includes a database that stores all the data on all computers that were tested by Inquisitor. If only some parts of hardware will change, clever scheduler won't redo all the long testing, but only tests relevant to hardware changes.

For those who would like to try Inquisitor, the easiest way is to download a 130MB ISO, available for both x86 and x86_64 from

Comments and especially bug reports are welcome. Puplets

"One of the great things about Puppy is how easy it is to use it as a base for your very own distro. You can install your own programs setup the themes and preferences just the way you like them then use the Remaster option to bundle it all into your very own cd iso. Imagine that, boot from your own live CD and have everything set just how you like it in less than a minute. Many people choose to share their remasters for the benefit of others, we call these versions, puplets."

Inquisitor v3.0-rc2 LiveCD x86 x86_64

"Inquisitor is an open-source hardware testing and certification system, suitable for both enterprise and home use, customizable, modular and available in both serverless Live CD/DVD format and server-controlled network boot production system.

It can analyse and test your hardware from top to the bottom and assure that it won’t fail easily under the production stress.

Inquisitor is:

* Flexible: you can adjust just about any parameter in analysis or testing process and customize the system to the widest extent.

* Modular: it’s made up from a series of interchangeable modules; one can easily add new modules to add new tests, detections, production steps, etc.

* Intelligent: server-based version includes a database that stores all the data on all computers that were tested by Inquisitor. If only some parts of hardware will change, clever scheduler won’t redo all the long testing, but only tests relevant to hardware changes.

* Distributed: due to modular architecture, Inquisitor can be easily distributed across a cluster to distribute load or make a geographically distributed system.

* Scalable: it could be helpful to analyse/test just one home computer or all the computers in your organization, up to multiple thousands computers in manufacturing enterprise.

* Free as in speech: the base platform is distributed under the GPL license.

* Mature: Inquisitor is based on a rock-solid Linux technology and is under active development since 2004. There are multiple production enterprise installations relying on it." x86 x86_64

VoIPonCD 20060525

"VoIPonCD - an easy to configure Voice over IP PBX

Easy to configure VoIP-PBX with prepaid billing system for companies and providers


VoIPonCD is a software PBX for connecting Voice over IP telephones to it based on the Asterisk VoIP PBX. Normally you need much time knowing how Asterisk works, especially when you want to connect more than up to 10 users. In big environments you will go a special way when using Asterisk named as the realtime mode which means that you put all your data into a database rather than using files. For somebody who just wants to use a PBX but doesn't want to read a big book about how to accomplish this he can insert VoIPonCD and everything is done with just a few mouse clicks due to the easy to use webinterface in combination with the underlying scripts. I just finished VoIPonCD as a thesis for my degree (Dipl.-Ing. like Master) whilst at university in Cologne, Germany. In a simple case you use VoIPonCD as your home VoIP PBX with an easy to use webinterface. In an enhanced, professional environment you can use this appliance for getting multiple instances of VoIPonCD to get a hosted PBX for every customer (like virtual servers but in this case a virtual PBX). The customer can connect his telephones to one appliance running at at big system which is capable of using many instances of this appliance for serving the customers each with his own fully configurable PBX.

The appliance is based on the Debian Linux appliance. I added all the scripts, servers and the webinterface to it, shut the server down and compressed the directory to the zip file. I've done this in a few easy steps by just getting the original VoIPonCD installation script from my server which has downloaded the programs like apache webserver, MySQL database (apt-get in debian style) and copied all the scripts to the right places. Changes to the Debian appliance were not necessary, it just worked from the beginning.

"USB Flash Memory GNU/Hurd

It would be nice if we had a bootable USB flash drive Hurd like ?DamnSmallLinux. It would be useful for those who want to try out the Hurd before they commit to installing it on their hard disks. In addition to that, a bootable Flash Hurd would enable us to have a native installer instead of relying on Linux.

It could be installed in the USB using a Live CD (using a script) - this is the Burned version - or directly downloading the iso files from the Internet - Unburned version -. One can use also [qemu] to run the Live CD and them use the USB installation script.

Here is an outline of the things that need to be done. Please add your comments and suggestions."
