Booting ISo from HDD
Posted 27 April 2010 - 11:35 AM
I have a legal copy of Norton 2003 .ISo file [Bootable 3Mb]
I want to put this file in C:\ drive or any other drive & make a option to boot from it in the BOOT MEnu.
I am using a Windows XP sp2.So that I can restore the image i made without wasting a CD/DVD for Ghost to be Burned.

You are wrong. (hey, you asked for it!)
I'm pretty sure this is not possible with normal ISO files (someone please correct me if I'm wrong).
DOS based .iso files can normally be chainloaded by grub4dos allright.
In the case of this particular image, which I personally doubt is actually a "legal copy" of anything, as well as ANY floppy-emulation based image ONLY, it is prefectly pointless, as it is much more convenient to chainload the actual floppy image (as opposed to the container that contains it, i.e. the .iso file).
More details here:
(reasons why you can't say "any" or "normal")
JFYI, you may be surprised by the number of .iso's for which there is already a solution :
