Installing Matriux Krypton on Hard Disk / Virtual Box

I will guide you through a series of steps that would help you installing matriux on your Hard Disk / Virtual Box


If you are installing on Hard Disk Drive scroll down to the instructions from "Step 6"

Follow these series of screenshots to install Matriux Krypton until I create a more brief tutorial and a video

Step1 :


Start the virtual box and click on "New"  and select Operating System as "Linux" and Version as "Debian"





Step 2:


Allocate the RAM memory for the Installation anything more than 256Mb is good enough




Step 3:


Create a Virtual Hard Disk for the installation usually more than 6Gb is fine ( 8GB recommended). Select anything for the type of virtual hard disk.



Step 4:


Allot the hard disk size and also the directory you want else go with the default




Step 5:


After these steps start the Virtual machine, Since it is the first time it will prompt us so that a Disk Image (ISO image) can be mounted. Browse and locate the ISO image on your hard disk. ( the place where you downloaded Matriux Krypton)


Select Installation media to the ISO in your hard disk or DVD drive



This will start Matriux in Live mode



Enter password as "toor" and login




Step 6:



Open up a terminal and type gparted to start the gparted interface

If it is a new unallocated partition then Device > Create Partition   ( else if it is a used disk space then skip the next step and go to formatting it)







Step 7:




select the Disk space you want to install Matriux and click New






Click on "Add"


Click on the Tick mark highlighted in the screen shot below and check "Apply"
and close gparted now


Step 8:

Now open a terminal and mount the partition we just created
Type the following in the terminal

mkdir /mnt/matriux
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/matriux




Step 9:

Close the terminal, Now start the Matriux Disk Installer from the desktop and It should be easy for you now, Its a simple 7 step process !! with few entries such as username passwords, locale ...thats it!!!



Step a:

 Select the installation partition




Step b:


Choose if you want to install grub


Choose the disc for grub


Step c:


Type the username and passwords for root and user






Step d:


Select the Locale you want ( Select en_US if you are not sure and prefer English)




Step e:




Confirm your settings and profile




The installer then proceeds for a few minutes of installing Matriux


Step f:

Congratulations you have now installed Matriux, reboot your system to boot into your new installation



Happy Testing!!!!!! :D
