other Approachs to install Linuxcnc
I needed to install Linuxcnc on an SSD drive for that Maho PC. I´ve tried like 100 times to do so. I´ve got an SATA to USB adapter that shows the ssd as usb drive. There is no option to install Linux cnc on that SSD drive, only option is to make it an bootable usb drive but it won´t be able to install itselfe on itself when put back into the machine.
In the end i took a scrap mainboard from the yard, installed Linuxcnc with the usb thumbb drive on the ssd drive. But why can´t you just install Linuxcnc on any kind of storage in it´s full version ? not live ? so that you can use it plug and play
That will work with Linux on pretty much any damn thing, laptop, PC, dishwasher ....

I do that a lot. Linux Mint does that , Debian might be more picky.
Maybe need install 32bit into 64 bit machine, its possible right?the opposite isnt true 64bit OS into 32bit processor.
And install over ethernet isnt possible?
i saw at customer site the IT guys staff doing it using windows, install over ethernet for many computers.
Yes and yes.

Yes, but it still needs to boot from a USB or CD from a very small image, then install.

Over Local Network, not over internet, and this needs a server setup just for that, so the windows image has to be on that server, and again it needs to boot form a USB or CD.

Or how to with script using PXE
Without Having the option to boot from USB or CD-ROM/DVD the only other option is to install on a second machine and transfer the hdd over.
Unfortunately the OP’s case in this day and age is a pretty rare case. Such is the march of technology.
Debian installs package by package as far as I can tell.
Copy & paste would still leave you without a boot loader being installed. Sure all the files would be on the disc but it wouldn't be bootable.
So unless you can boot via USB\CD\DVD\Network the only other option is to install to a hdd on a second system, preferably contacted to a IDE or SATA port (using a usb to sata or IDE will give you a headache) depending on the target M\B then installing the HDD into the target system.
