Hi,

Are all the ISO images for M7 hybrid images?

You can run isohybrid on any recent (< 1 year?) openSUSE CD/DVD image to
make it a hybrid image. Worked for me the last few times I tried it over
the last year.

Thanks, this worked.

After the inintial start up I ended up in an ncurses interface with the
message "Make sure CD number 1 is in your drive.". Using "Back" and the
ensuing menus I was able to get the install system running.

During system analysis things break:

"The partitioning on disk /dev/sdc is not readable by the partitioning
tool parted, which is used to change the partition table.
....
"

Where sdc is the USB stick.

Clicking "OK" leads to a new dialog with the following message.

"Unable to create repository from URL 'hd:/?device=/dev/sdc1'.

Details:
Empty destination in URI: hd:///?device=/dev/sdc1

Try again?
"

To create the stick I used

# isohybrid openSUSE-DVD-Build0625-i586.iso
# dd if=openSUSE-DVD-Build0625-i586.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=32

When inserting the stick into a running system I can see the stick
having 1 partition (sdc1). When mounting the partition I see the
"regular" structure I expect to see in an ISO image.

The target install drive is /dev/sda, which has 3 partitions.

(The older ones did not always recognise the ISO on the USB stick as an
installation source, so you could only use them to install from the
network IIRC)
