I am remembering this here:
Did one tried to create a something like a tiny linux installation to boot only ISOs on a HDD?
Something like that:
HDD 500GB (GPT)
/dev/sda1 → EFI partition for tiny linux (32MB)
/dev/sda2 → bios_grub partition for tiny linux (8MB)
/dev/sda3 → / (1GB)
/dev/sda4 → exfat /isostore (5GB)
— Not allocated —
These 3 partitions have to be locked somehow. So that they don’t get overwritten by accident.
So in general the idea is, that i can start a current ISO of Manjaro anytime without having Manjaro installed and without having a DVD or flash drive. Plus the ISO Loader should be possible to install it without a live session. Something like ventoy, but not on a flash drive and not the whole drive.
In first place, I need this for unexpected errors and to have an unchanged OS Environment, anytime also if i have no OS installed.
Does someone have tinkered with something like that or know some sites, with explanations about this use case?
