A few posts before the one I linked to.
Cryptic to say the least. All I can read on that post is the quote from crashnburn where he points out most of my own question, to be honest.
It seems as if everybody that talks about this subject can't take the time to write a post on it with details on what he/she did, and WHY he/she found the need to do that.
You need anyway a Linux install to be able to run Linux only commands such as mkinitcpio.
I can't understand what you mean with this sentence. You mean I need to find a way to run Linux from commands such as mkinitcpio?
If so, why? To accomplish what goal? Knowing why we do stuff really helps on understanding the whole picture and learning on the subjects.
Of course you need to read (and re-read and re-re-read) the whole thread and provided resources, then digest what you have read and put all the info on top of some (pre-existing) slightly-more-than-basic Linux knowledge/experience.
That doesn't seem to help.
I've read and re-read the whole thread 2 times and I've gone to re-read the posts you mentioned at least another 2 times.
I just can't understand them because they are based not on knowledge about Linux as a whole but on knowledge on how Linux boots up. Redoing initramfs images, kernel boot up options, etc.
And those posts are not specific. Those just mention parts of what needs to be done.
That makes it very difficult to go find resources on the Internet. We just don't know what we're looking for...
If you are thinking of an automated/automagic program there isn't any (that I know of).
No, I am not looking at some automatic/automagic such as wubi to help me out. Yes, it would be nice but it's not a requirement.
What I am looking for is for resources, details on why/how to do something in order to being able to boot Linux from a VHD or raw image from G4D.
