    booting iso images from grub 2


    I'm having issues getting grub to boot iso images. I'm pointing to the correct drive according to the fdisk -l output of where I have the iso images stored and extracted the kernel and init files to that folder as well. It keeps coming up with the file not found error. Would the disk order be different for grub then in linux? Heres what it looks like:

    root=(drive)
    loopback loop /location of iso
    linux (loop)/kernel locatioin
    initrd (loop)/init location

    Any suggestions?

    Hi!

    Do you think it's possible for you to paste the grub2 output here?

    OK.

    Maybe we can try to fix grub installation to start with. Boot using a Live CD and execute

    as root:

    Code:
    # grub
    
     [ Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported.  For the first word, TAB
       lists possible command completions.  Anywhere else TAB lists the possible
       completions of a device/filename. ]
    
    grub> find /boot/grub/stage1
     (hd0,6)
     (hd0,7)
     (hd0,8)
    
    grub>
    Please post the output here.
