Volumio .img on hard drive want to boot with program,but not working

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hi there I have a hp xw6200.


And I want to use it as a media player.

I have a program call volumio that I flash the image on one external hard drive that was connected as an USB. When I put the volumio hard drive in the xw6200 as  a primary drive and boot it does not recognize and ask me to repair or change and press any key.


How can I boot with volumio when I press the on button of the computer???

 Thanks a lot if you can help.

Surely volumio would be the place to ask?

NOTE: you will loose ALL the data on your HDD.

- Flash Volumio 2 to a usb stick
- Format another usb stick wit FAT32, and copy the unzipped downloaded x86 image to it.
- Then boot from your usb volumio 2 stick.
- Will until the UI is showing, the press ctrl-alt-F1 to open a terminal session
- Log in with volumio/volumio
- Type

Code: Select all
    sudo blkid

and check the output.
- You should see /dev/sda, /dev/sdb and /dev/sdc (presuming you only have one disk in your x86 pc)
The device with the labels "volumioboot", "volumioimg" and "volumiodata" is the one you booted from.
The device with the single vfat partition is the stick with the volumio image, assume it is /dev/sdX (X being a, b, c...)
The other device is your netbook's hdd, assume it is /dev/sdY (Y being a, b, c...)
- When sure about the devices, type

Code: Select all
      mkdir usb
      sudo mount /dev/sdX1 usb
      cd usb
      ls -l     
      sudo dd if=fullnameofthevolumioimage   of=/dev/sdY   bs=4M
      cd ..
      sudo umount usb
      sudo rm -r usb

- remove the usb sticks, reboot et voila
