Re: ISO Booting with Grub 2
I, for one, are glad to here you do not have MS installed on your box.
Is the ISO on your / partition?
Is it owned by root?
If the answer to both is true then I have not got a clue. If the answer to either one is false then you need to fix it so it is true.
I know this for a fact as they are mistakes I made.
I use a / and a /home partition and tried to boot with the entry pointing at my root partition (OK, so I am simple).
I had left the permissions as they are normally (owned by user). This will not work as grub is looking for a root file.
To fix both of these I created /etc/aa just for ISOs. You can't put anything in there except as root, gives me an easy target to point the menu entry at.
