what is fromiso=/findiso= looking for?

Postby OSBuildX » 2018-12-01 22:52

well, kinda odd situation as I got few iso's at same location and debian seems selects first iso it can find, mounting all partitions everytime instead of what is pointed to it. Why is hd-media mounting and searching through all "partitions" instead of what is given to it?

vmlinuz from hd-media 9.6 amd64.

Code: Select all
linux /vmlinuz fromiso=/dev/sda7/firmware-9.6.0-amd64-netinst.iso

seems to find debian.iso everytime.

Code: Select all
linux /vmlinuz findiso=/firmware-9.6.0-amd64-netinst.iso

seems to find /debian.iso located at /dev/sda2 everytime.

So, where am I going wrong?

Are you trying to boot from a iso?

I haven't tested debian, no need to, but maybe this will help as I have to test my builds, I use 40_custom

Code: Select all
menuentry "Siduction-Live-KDE-Plasma5-Development" {
        insmod iso9660
       insmod part_gpt
        insmod ext2
       set root='hd1,gpt1'
       if [ x$feature_platform_search_hint = xy ]; then
        search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root --hint-bios=hd1,gpt1 --hint-efi=hd1,gpt1 --hint-baremetal=ahci1,gpt1  192108a8-601e-4868-882d-97ad3042b5ee
       search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root 192108a8-601e-4868-882d-97ad3042b5ee
       loopback loop /builds/siduction/siduction-18.3.0-paintitblack-kde-amd64-201812021335.iso
