How to find boot options for a given iso?


Working on a pxe boot server for myself. Having trouble figuring out boot options.

In the pxelinux.cfg/default file..

Code:
append boot=casper netboot=nfs nfsroot=192.168.1.3:/var/lib/tftpboot/Ubuntu/14.04/amd64/desktop initrd=Ubuntu/14.04/amd64/desktop/initrd.lz quiet splash
How do I find out the line that a given iso uses to boot, say Ubuntu server 16.04?

This website shows kernel parameters for popular iso's. Another way is to loop mount the iso to a directory and look for isolinux.cfg and grub.cfg.

I'm pretty sure the file you need is sitting on the ubuntu repository servers. Not wanting to dig around to find it, I'd download the iso, mount it, and look at isolinux/txt.cfg

Exactly what I was looking for. Knew there had to be a standard way of finding that info. Thank you. Solved.
