This script can also be used to install system on your VM hard disk, however it will copy the system image block by block and hence it will make your hard disk size equal to 8GB equivalent to SQUASH FS filesystem created by Live CD.

To install the system on your hard drive please invoke the script NGELINUX_HARDDISK_INSTALL as root or nglinux user.

Here is the output of complete script:

[nglinux@nglinux ~]$ NGELINUX_INSTALL
