Boot USB (or any device) through CD drive?
I know that it is possible to boot any device desired by using tools like Super Grub Disk, so what I'm wondering is how difficult (or easy) would it be to create a CD that when you boot it, it immediately just boots the USB drive?
Now, there are a few ways one could go about this I imagine:
- you could boot the BIOS's list of hard drives in reverse order (we are assuming that the boot order is Floppy, CD, HD, and that HD is broken down into internal drive, then all "addons")
- or possibly detect what is USB and boot the first thing found
- or just show the user a list of devices and let them pick - (imagine GRUB, but give a list of devices instead of configured partitions)
My preference is not necessarilly in this order.
How hard might it be to create any one of those? Or do tools already exist to do this? (I need using it to be fast and easy like the examples above - possibly being even completely automatic, like #1 and #2)
