OpenBSD USB install - BSD
Saos
Does anyone know how I can install OpenBSD to my hard drive from a USB stick? I've been searching for guides for days and haven't been able to find anything clear. All I can find are live bootable installs.

I don't have a disc drive which is why I'm asking. I'm also on a Win7 machine since it's all I have at the moment. I haven't been able to use *nix in almost a year and I need it back.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I figured you all would know better than I do.

- Download install50.iso from one of OpenBSD.org’s mirrors
- Create a qemu image
- Install a minimal OpenBSD environment to the image using qemu
- Copy the installation sets from the .iso to the image’s root
- dd the completed image to your usb device
- boot the usb from your bios and install OpenBSD to your harddrive

Need a BSD machine to do this from I suppose. Maybe I'll just buy an external optical drive or wait until I get a better machine. Thanks Beastie.

HA. I feel like an idiot now. Thanks for reminding me of that shix.

Too bad plhk doesn't post here, we could have pretty epic OpenBSD wars.
