    How to upload .iso file to Vultr from Google Drive?

    I followed this tutorial: https://www.vultr.com/docs/windows-custom-iso-with-virtio-drivers and made my custom Windows 7 with Virtio iso file.

    I am trying to upload my custom Windows iso file with Virtio drivers to Google Drive for almost 3 hours, because all other iso on the Interent didn't worked for me.

    Now when it is finally finished I am having problem to add that iso image in my.vultr.com/iso. When I try to attach that iso it says 0 MB, so I assume my Google Drive share link is not configured properly. My url link is not finished with .iso extension like on this website: https://iso.quanlyvps.com/ instead it ends with some random hash numbers like 90a1JsZ3pGyjA

    How could I get my google drive link to finish with .iso?

      You can't - Google does not offer direct download links.

    • You need to add a hotlink...I think you can give direct links with drop box... But not sure

    • Maybe this is any useful for you: http://gdurl.com/

      You can I'll see if I can find the link I used to do it. But you basically create a new folder with a public.html file in it you get the link for that and change its id= to the one of the iso

    • I found this and he still use it: http://www.dalebasler.com/2014/03/get-a-direct-link-to-files-hosted-in-google-drive/

      Someone shared this link in the comments section below:
      https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2881970?hl=en

      I tried that, but still not being able to get .iso like the guy from https://iso.quanlyvps.com/

      How the hell he managed to do it?

      Please m8 find it :) I need 3 hours more to upload to dropbox... and I waited 4 hours to upload to Google Drive. It is killing me.

      OK, guys I found a solution thx to BG32. For anybody in the future follow this tutorial:

              1) Crete a folder in Google Drive and make it public
              2) Upload large file inside and remember the name (for example Win_7.iso)
              3) Copy folder ID (long string of characters)
              4) Then go to www.googledrive.com/host/[your folder ID]/[file name]
      

      In our case would be www.googledrive.com/host/[your folder ID]/Win_7.iso

      Now when I go to that link I can start downloading my file immediately.

      I just upload the iso to one of my lowend VPSes and then add it to VULTR

      OMG! Why life need to be so harsh? I tried to add that image to Vultr, but I got this:

      Image "Win_7_file.iso" does not appear to be an ISO, file type: ASCII HTML document text, with very long lines (size: 51891 bytes)

    • It would be easier for clients if Vultr willing to provide local pc upload as an options to the remote upload.

      wget http://freevps.us/downloads/bench.sh -O - -o /dev/null|bash && dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync; rm -rf test

      why not upload to your other vps ? and upload from there to vultr. or use demo.ovh.eu, which allow direct download

      Let's bet which dot-name will collapse first ;)

      Just use mongoose http server its only one executable

      I wonder if its because php might struggle with large uploads

      Favourite host in general: Ramnode (affiliate link)
      Favourite host for hourly billing/custom ISOs: Vultr ($50 free credit for new accounts, affiliate link)

    • Just to give you an update. I contacted Vultr support which was very helpful. They downloaded my Google Drive iso file and uploaded for me.

      I think they should really do something about this remote upload and improve it somehow.

      Might use demo.ovh.eu in the future or upload directly to my VPS.

      I actually did it. But it takes time to setup Linux server with some cpanel and configure it properly. I am not a coder especially linux one where everything is in cmd.

      Yesterday I spent whole day watching tutorials about installing cpanel on Centos and stuff. Plus various uploads took me 8 hours...

      And problems seems don't have an end. I need to open another HELP thread to resolve my Virtio drivers issue now. This is ridiculous.

      What is "quanley" iso? I tried to Google it, but it suggested me spelling fix "quality" iso? If you mean quality then I do not know... I just followed their tutorial to the T and created iso with their settings. I don't know if I deploy Windows 2012 how could I share files from Windows environment. Never did it on my Windows 7.

      Also here is the thread for my next problem:

      Facepalm ;) That quanly... I have to use Win 7 for something specific what I am doing, so I went with both Win 7 from his website. First large got an error, second tiny one also got an error at installation when I got some strange pop up error language not supported... I picked English and stuff.

      Then I went trying different versions on the net and had no luck. That is why I created my custom one.

      I agree server 2008 or 2012 should be the best choice for Windows VPS, but I need Win 7 for now. Now everything works fine! Thx guys!
