Auto load iso file

Hello All!

First off thank you in advance for your advice and help.

What I am wondering is, can you edit the PXE boot menu to automatically boot an iso or img file instead of defaulting to the internal HDD? I have my all my PCs at home encrypted with diskcryptor and would like ERPXE to hand out the bootloader which can be an ISO file or IMG file.

And if ERPXE cannot do this. Does anyone know what can?

Thanks again!

You can create you own custom plugin with memdisk as ISO loader, just follow these instructions:
1. create a folder '/tftpboot/er/plugins/custom1'
2. copy your ISO file to '/tftpboot/er/plugins/custom1' and name it 'custom1.iso'
3. create a file in '/tftpboot/er/plugins/custom1' called 'custom1.menu' :

Code: Select all

LABEL CUSTOM1
MENU LABEL Custom ISO Loader
kernel pxelinux.cfg/roms/memdisk
append iso initrd=er/plugins/custom1/custom1.iso raw
TEXT HELP
Load any ISO file
ENDTEXT

4. add a link to your quicklaunch menu file in /tftpboot/er/menu/quicklaunch-custom.menu:

Code: Select all

include er/plugins/custom1/custom1.menu
