PartedMagic — Booting ISO image from GRUB2 / openSUSE

Please note: this is not an excuse not to have a bootable USB-stick for true emergencies. This is just for convenience.

File download

On openSUSE (13.2), this file needs to be placed into “/etc/grub.d/”. After that run “yast2 bootloader” to update GRUB2’s config file (“/boot/grub2/grub.cfg”).

The ISO-file must be on a partition / file-system that is accessible to GRUB2 during boot. In this case the file(s) are on the first partition of “hd0” (defined in “/boot/grub2/”), the boot-partition (EXT4) of this system.
