like any new linux user i had problems burning/installing linux from windows
i had to learn how to fix problems the hard way ( i damaged my harddisk twice
) but that didn't stop me from trying again.
here i like to share a tool i used to run any liveCD ( iso ) inside windows without any experience at all!
MobaLiveCD is a freeware that will run your Linux LiveCD on Windows thanks to the excellent emulator called "Qemu".
MobaLiveCD allows you to test your LiveCD with a single click : after downloading the ISO image file of your favorite LiveCD, you just have to start it in MobaLiveCD and here you are, without the need to burn a CD-Rom or to reboot your computer.
MobaLiveCD key features:
+ No need to burn the CD-Rom anymore
+ You can use the right-click menu for an easy and fast start
+ Program without installation that you can start from an USB stick
+ A clear and easy to use interface
+ Light and portable application, packaged in a single executable of 1.6MB onlyStep by Step how to use MobaLiveCD:
1- download MobaLiveCD, go to http://mobalivecd.mobatek.net/en/
and follow the download link. Save the MobaLiveCD executable somewhere on your hard drive
2- Start MobaLiveCD right away by simply clicking on the executable - it's a standalone application, i.e., it doesn't need to be installed:
3-.. and select the ISO image of a Linux Live-CD from your hard drive (e.g. Knoppix):
4-If you want to save changes that you make in the Linux live system, create a hard disk image for the virtual machine, otherwise select No:
5-If you have chosen to create a hard disk image, specify its location:
6-Afterwards the Live-CD starts and boot the Linux system. Click into the window to move the mouse pointer of the Linux system or to press keys inside the Linux system. To release the mouse pointer, press CTRL+ALT.
MobaLiveCD also lets you add a menu entry to the right-click menu of ISO images so that you can directly run the ISO image from the right-click menu. To set up the menu entry, click on the Right-click menu button in MobaLiveCD:
Now when you right-click on an ISO image, you see the entry Test this with MobaLiveCD in the right-click menu. Select this if you want to start the ISO image in MobaLiveCD:
If you want to remove the entry from the right-click menu, click on the Uninstall button in MobaLiveCD:
