    Post Booting Debian ISO with grub2 and a separate Kernel


    Hello ,
    I am trying to install Debian using debian netinstall cd(~160mb) with debian-installer.the cd boots into tmpfs.

    it cannot mount My ext4 partition.it errs out:
    Code:
    mount:mounting /dev/sdb7  on /debiancd failed: No such device
    I cannot see ext3/ext4 modules in kernel modules directory.it contains only isofs and fat modules.Is this the Problem?
    --
    I want to try booting ISO with Another Kernel outside ISO.ie vmlinuz,initrd.gz extracted from a working installation and make grub2 to use this kernel to boot as well as continue the ISO loop mounted, to Boot.
    Currently,below is the menuentry on grub2:
    Code:
    menuentry "Debian ISO on /dev/sdb7" {
    insmod ext2
    set root=(hd0,7)
    loopback loop /debian-testing-amd64-netinst.iso
    linux (loop)/install.amd/vmlinuz boot=install.amd iso-scan/filename=/debian-testing-amd64-netinst.iso noeject noprompt --
    initrd (loop)/install.amd/initrd.gz
    }
    ^^^^ How Can I make Another Kernel to Boot For this Debian ISO?

    Thank You

    I think you could add the kernel to the iso file. then just change it accordingly in your grub menu.
