Using a bootable live cd disk image mounted on the hard drive
I have a few dozen disk images (ISO's) that I use as a technician, ie: MS DaRT, BackTrack, Acronis, etc. I would like to be able to select a menu option in Grub2 to enable me to select one of the many images to boot from.
I have heard that you can create partitions and format them as CD format so that one could copy the contents of the boot disk to the partition and boot from it. I intend to create the partitions on my primary HDD.
Is this the best method of booting an ISO? Please tell me how in either case.
Note: I know how to use GParted, so I won't need step-by-step for that portion.
Hardware: HP DV7-1232nr 2 HDD's
