There is something similar which has been suggested or mentioned here in the forum several times.
I learned it from @SGS and liked it a lot , so I’m picking a random post from him at a quick search for “custom.cfg”:
You can also boot ISO’s directly from the internal hard disk with custom.cfg.
Is everything here in the forum, somewhere
But a big time advantage does not arise from this for me to be able to test all Garuda DE’s now.
The Garuda download tool seems to be not in use anymore, otherwise would I have said, that it could put ISOs into that directory as well, so we could just download and reboot into live mode with a handful of clicks.
custom.cfg did that.
Feel free to add this to the gitlab as MR.
I do not think so, Garuda is arch based, in the end the user is his own admin.
We are user-friendly, and newbies have to learn and not waiting for spoon-feed , at some point we do not have enough developer for all your wishes.
I understand your point of view, but new tools should be for important system functionality.
This seems to me to be something that makes life easier for those who test new isos (or other things…), and those who want to test should be able to edit a text file by just changing the name of the iso.
It’s nice-to-have as far as I’m concerned, but I really wouldn’t ask developers to invest time on this if they have other priorities (within the time they can dedicate).
Booting an ISO off the disk is a neat parlor trick, but less useful than a proper Ventoy stick for ISO testing. With Ventoy you can just throw ten ISOs on there if you want to, and get to work without having to redo the setup in between.
What would be really neat would be to have a Ventoy option built in to the disk. That way you could throw some ISOs into the Ventoy partition (right from the GUI file manager if you want to) and boot to Ventoy from Grub, or whatever boot manager.
It seems like it would be possible if Ventoy can share the regular EFI partition, but I have not tested or even looked at it closely. disk_layout_gpt . Ventoy
