As an experiment, I even inserted a dd'd flash drive containing the proxmox
ISO (which works if I boot to it) and then booted from my multiboot USB
drive to the shell and then mounted /mnt as the flash drive
mount /dev/sdc /mnt
then I ran the modified script.
I gave the same fail message.
So that seems to indicate that something is wrong with the script or
environment when I run the script?
The script I run starts with
if [ -f /mnt/pve-installer.squashfs ]; then
echo this is a Proxmox VE installation CD
if ! mount -t squashfs -o ro,loop /mnt/pve-base.squashfs
debugsh_err_reboot "mount pve-base.squashfs failed"
any ideas what is not set up before this?
