Can The Calculate Live isos be booted from a multiboot driver?


Hi!

I always travel with an usb driver containing iso files for several Linux distros.

After testing Calculate dd-ed on an usb driver with success and installing it on 3 test machines I would now like to add it to my multi isos usb.

My first attempts have not been successful, so I wonder if this is possible at all, before i start more serious testing and eventually prepare a post to seek help if it comes to that.

I don't know about booting the iso directly from grub, However it is possible to extract the vmlinuz, initrd, livecd.squashfs from the iso to a directory and boot the files with grub.

For what you want, I'd use Ventoy - https://www.ventoy.net/en/index.html

I tried that. I actually expanded the content of the iso to a folder in the usb drive, but I could not come up with a proper menu entry.

I found a solution at https://forum.calculate-linux.org/t/...o-file/11336/4 and I was able to boot from the iso file.

Thanks for you answer !
