Is there any way to boot the iso from usb with grub2, for example ubuntu?

Code: Select all

menuentry "Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop ISO" {
 loopback loop /ubuntu.iso
 linux (loop)/casper/vmlinuz boot=casper iso-scan/filename=/ubuntu.iso noeject noprompt splash --
 initrd (loop)/casper/initrd.lz
}

Have a look at the gentoo grub2 wiki:

I've tried all the options to boot from http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/GRUB2#ISO_images, but I could not. If anyone has any experience with this, share it.
