Booting DSL iso image from grub2 on a usb
 
I need to be able to boot the DSL .iso from grub2. I've tried every possible combination but none seem to be able to boot it. I've also looked everywhere on google and no one seems to ask how to achieve this. How exactly (with which grub commands) do I boot the iso from grub2?

P.S. options I've tried:

Code:

loopback loop (hd0,1)/home/me/dsl.iso
linux (loop)/boot/isolinux/linux24
initrd (loop)/boot/isolinux/minirt.gz
boot

Code:

loopback loop (hd0,1)/home/me/dsl.iso
linux (loop)/boot/isolinux/linux24 init=/etc/init
initrd (loop)/boot/isolinux/minirt.gz
boot

And a few that have been similar, but none have worked. Thanks

Hi, and welcome to the forums.

I don't quite understand your question but I will do my best to help a bit. First, are you trying to get grub (installed on your computer's hard drive) to boot an ISO? Because if you are, I highly doubt that grub supports that.

If you are wanting to boot DSL off of a USB drive, look into unetbootin. That will put DSL on your USB drive for you and you should not have to mess with grub at all.
