Re: how to boot a mint iso from hdd instead of a usb device

Well, you are doing it the hard way, instead of using the Rescatux/SuperGrub2 CD... but you can improve on your unnecessarily complicated plan by installing Mint to the hard drive in the normal manner, and then install the Mint installation program (ubiquity) sudo apt-get install ubiquity It will a...

You don't need any special installation just for booting the live Mint .iso You can use Grub to boot .iso files from your USB drive or a hard drive.

Hi lmintnewb2, sound's like you need a bigger keyboard, hop around on it like a kangaroo :lol: Dratz, how did you know, I'm a kangaroo... :) Hopping is more tiring then you think, though.
