Hi there,

I am Rao Mohsin from Pakistan. I am following
https://www.howtogeek.com/196933/how-to … ard-drive/
this tutorial for booting my system directly from ISO file. this tutorial is on Ubuntu 14. I am trying on Fedora (13,20,24,29)

I did not understand this line
boot=casper iso-scan/filename=${isofile} quiet
I download Fedora ISOs from fedora website.
https://archives.fedoraproject.org/pub/ … ve/x86_64/

I found vmlinuz and initrd file and mentioned accordingly. But the issue is the line.
Boot=casper……
I am writing
root=live:CDLABEL=Fedora-Mate-Live-29-1-2
root=rd.live.image
root=(hd0,msdos1)
root=/dev/sda1
root=live

but all failed.
I got error “Don’t know how to handle (rd.live.image)
What should I write so it run successfully.
One more thing that I have do the same with debian it successfully run.
http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/stab … t/mini.iso

grub>loopback loop (hd0,msdos1)/Downloads/mini.iso
grub>Linux (loop)/Linux
grub>Initrd (loop)/initrd.gz
grub>Boot
it successfully run.

Please resolve my issue.

Many thanks,
Rao
