Looking for GRUB 2 menuentries

Lethal Possum

Recommended Posts


I am trying to make the following ISO images boot from a USB hard drive using GRUB 2:

"Knoppix 6.0.1" KNOPPIX_V6.0.1CD-2009-02-08-EN.iso

"BackTrack 4 Pre-final" bt4-pre-final.iso

"System Rescue CD 1.2.3 i386" systemrescuecd-x86-1.2.3.iso

"Kon-boot 1.1" konboot-v1.1-2in1.iso

"Memtest x86 3.5" Memtest86_3.5.iso

"DBAN i386 beta 2006042900" dban-beta.2006042900_i386.iso

Did anyone succeed with any of these ISOs?

For Knoppix, BackTrack, System Rescue CD, I tried a minimal menuentry similar to


menuentry "Knoppix 6.0.1" {

loopback loop /boot/iso/KNOPPIX_V6.0.1CD-2009-02-08-EN.iso

linux (loop)/boot/isolinux/linux --

initrd (loop)/boot/isolinux/minirt.gz


For Kon-boot, Memtest and DBAN I was not able to figure out the structure of the ISO and what to put on the Linux and initrd lines.

Any suggestions?
