The find command you have written out is correct.  I suspect the disk just isn't mounted, especially if you booted from CD.

Please run
Code: [Select]
blkid /dev/sd??and post the device(s) listed (/dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1 etc) and the LABEL and TYPE for each

Code: [Select]
mount |grep /dev/sdand post the device(s) listed and their mount points.

blkid /dev/sd??and post the device(s) listed (/dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1 etc) and the LABEL and TYPE for each
I ran that command but I dont understand what any of this mounting means so please see a screen shot attached




Code: [Select]
mount [color=red]|[/color]grep /dev/sdand post the device(s) listed and their mount points.

Hi JBG,
Sorry I have not replied sooner, been busy.
Are you still trying to get the hard drive install to work?
I guess you want to keep Linux mint?
Tiny Core Linux is two files. core.gz which is the file system and vmlinuz which is the kernel.
Both are needed and both are on the CD.
You would need to boot into linux mint then run the CD to copy the files to a directory(folder) created on the hard drive.
ideally in / , the root directory, but you would need to sudo in mint to do that. perhaps name it tiny_core_linux.
To add tiny core to the boot menu it would be necessary to edit the /etc/grub.d/40_custom file as root.
This may take some explaining but I believe the code that Leee provided would work then run the command to update grub.
Hope this helps some,
Joe

If its all the same I think I will leave the instulation for now as it would all be a waste of time if I could not get the internet to work

To answer your question, if you can boot the CD, the kernel and the initrd can be copied to a hard drive
but a boot loader would be needed. Grub2 and Syslinux work.

Do you know how to check to see if Grub2 and Syslinux  are all ready installed?
How do you install it please? is it downloaded from the net or done on a CD/ USB stick?

Doing this method, can I still have 2 partisions on the HDD?

I think it will be easier for you to use the tc-install-GUI or tc-install extensions

As long as I can partition the hard drive then let go with that!
Do you know how to do it please?

Hi Jail Bill Gates
Please download the  TCscan.sh  script found here:
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,23936.0.html

Then make it executable and run it:
Code: [Select]
chmod 775 TCscan.sh
./TCscan.sh

Attach the  TCscan_TIMESTAMP_.txt  file to your next post.  _TIMESTAMP_.  will be in the form of  YYMMDDHHMMS.

At the bottom of your post there is a link with 2 files to download. Do I download them on this machine burn to CD and transfer over to other machine somehow. Or do I download them from my web browser links in tiny core OS?

Yes. You only need to download the  TCscan.sh  file.

The very last line in the fourth image you posted shows:

I may have a couple of the digits wrong because the text is partially obscured by that  IMAG0026.AVI  label.

Hi Jail Bill Gates
Maybe you weren't logged in to the forum? Posted attachments are only visible if you are logged in.

The script and the file it produced should still be in your home directory.
