Boot an ISO from your hard disk

By this way there is no need to burn your CD or DVD you can directly boot an ISO.

I am running Debian on this Desktop computer, but I wanted to install Ubuntu with it. There is plenty of disk anyway.

Start downloading Ubuntu as iso file and save it on your disk.

Install grml-rescueboot, with my Debian was:

apt-get install grml-rescueboot

Then as root, copy the ISO image to /boot/grml/

cp ~/isos/ubuntu-image.iso /boot/grml/

Update Grub 2 (You are using grub 2 right?)


You have to be root to run that command.

Reboot your PC, and you will a new option in your booting list. You can now install Ubuntu from your hard disk.

Thank you for reading
