My installation of Ubuntu on my Poweredge is very messed up. I need to reinstall Ubuntu, but my CD-Drive is broken, and these machines don't boot off of USB's! Is there any way I can mount Ubuntu 12.04 as an ISO and boot off of that?

You can use MEMDISK to boot from the .iso image using your existing bootloader.

My computer shows that I have syslinux installed, but how would I use it to boot from the .iso ? – Chimerica Jun 17 '13 at 1:08
