Boot From ISO
This ain't working :-(
So I thought I was smart, and started to do instructions off the top of my head. Now I'm looking things up....
Something to do
- Put the files someplace "easy" to find and access. I put them into a
- find the UUID of the partition where the directory is located (probably
/dev/sda1) by looking with:
sudo ls -hl /dev/disk/by-uuid/.
sudo nano -w /etc/grub.d/40_custom
- enter in this line:
- sudo update-grub
Side Note - changing ISO size
If one wants to use the ISO as a more then a "live environment", the ISO should probably have ample space. So I'm going to figure out how to increase the size of an ISO. As usual, I'm leaving extra information to hopefully make things a bit educational....
Use these commands and note the size of the ISO file:
sudo parted /mnt/ISOs/live_image.iso.
- (in parted)
[[NOTE: I didn't notice that hte partition size was 3MB, that isn't right!!!]]
Now increase the file size by 8G:
sudo dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M count=8000 >> ./live_image.iso.
Use the commands in "Check size" to see that the file is larger.
