Please show your grub.cfg entry for the iso-boot.
Edit:

BTW, VirtualBox does not support boot from USB, so you should explain, what exact you are doing.

Tested on eee-pc 701 and eee-pc 1005

1 test, copy iso file, and test boot on fat32 support with grub2

Code: [Select]
menuentry "Siduction test 1" {
search --set -f "/siduction-12.1.1-desperadoreloaded-kde-i386-201206241910.iso"
loopback loop "/siduction-12.1.1-desperadoreloaded-kde-i386-201206241910.iso"
linux (loop)/boot/vmlinuz0.686 boot=fll fromiso=/siduction-12.1.1-desperadoreloaded-kde-i386-201206241910.iso
initrd (loop)/boot/initrd0.686
}


2 test, copy content iso on /path, and test boot on fat32 support with grub2

Code: [Select]
menuentry "Siduction test 2" {
linux /path/boot/vmlinuz0.686 boot=fll image_dir=/path/siduction
initrd /path/boot/initrd0.686
}

1st, Why you don't use grub2-fll-fromiso?
2nd, without an entry root= in your kernel line, it can't work.
3rd, the manual speaks only about linux-fs for fromiso.

If you speak about a usbstick, which contains the iso, then some other questions:

Why you don't use dd for putting the iso to the stick? or
Why you don't use fll-iso2usb?

Just for information i am the developer of multisystem
http://sourceforge.net/projects/multisystem/
http://liveusb.info/dotclear/index.php?pages/install

I tested also with more boot option:
root=UUID=xxxx-xxxx
fromhd=UUID=xxxx-xxxx
same problem ...


boot ok on all ==> siduction-12.1-desperado-xxx.iso
error on all ==> siduction-12.1.1-desperadoreloaded-xxx.iso

sorry for my broken English

EDIT
I will make a diff -r of the files in initrd ...

I have testet fromiso with the xfce-flavour, it boots without problems fromiso on an vfat-formated usb-stick.
I would suggest, check your iso.

@frafa, you could celebrate you bug finding with solution a bit more. ok-ko looks like a spelling error at first.
Isn't it a record at siduction forums:
A beginner with four entries !?

Would like to confirm that 'fromiso=' is a problem.
Tested only with "fromiso=/siduction-12.1.1-desperadoreloaded-xfce-i386-201206241935.iso" : it doesn't work.

Tested on vfat and ext4, also under grub and grub2.

In all cases booting is fine up to :
Code: [Select]
[sdc] Attached SCSI removable diskThen it ends. After <RETURN> I get into (initramfs).

Wish also to confirm that with the original "desperado" (which is a nice piece of work!) there was no problem at all.

Any hint?

Regards.

Did I understand right if I suppose you want to create a multiple boot usb stick?
What bootloader uses multisystem?

ct' Magazin has a multiboot rescue stick with Windows PE pmagic memtest etc. Uses grub1 if i am right.

here my insert for aptosid; there was no siduction at that time ;-)
Code: [Select]

splashimage /grub/exit.gz
default 0
 
title CC7PE ISO boot
find --set-root /cc7pe.iso
map /cc7pe.iso (0xff) || map --mem /cc7pe.iso (0xff)
map --hook
chainloader (0xff)
lock
 
title Acronis TrueImage Home
find --set-root /acronis1.iso
map --mem /acronis1.iso (hd32)
map --hook
root (hd32)
chainloader (hd32)
lock

title aptosid imera xfce (fromsiso Auswahl nötig)
map --mem /aptosid.iso (hd32)
map --hook
chainloader (hd32)
boot  


title MemTest86+ (binary)
kernel /memtest/memtest.bin
lock

title Parted Magic 6.7
find --set-root /pmagic-6.7.iso
map --mem /pmagic-6.7.iso (hd32)

Thank you for reaction.

Problem solved for the vfat formated stick booting with grub2.
The trick was to add "fromhd=UUID=0E30-87A8" to the grub.cfg menu entry.

Yes. it is a multiboot usb stick. I simply copied the iso to the stick.

My entry is now :
Code: [Select]
menuentry "siduction-12.1.1-desperadoreloaded-xfce-i386.iso" {
linux /desperadoreloaded/vmlinuz0.686 boot=fll tz=Europe/Brussels fromhd=UUID=0E30-87A8 fromiso=/siduction-12.1.1-desperadoreloaded-xfce-i386-201206241935.iso nointro quiet
initrd /desperadoreloaded/initrd0.686
}
Have to thank you for providing your grub.cfg entry which gave me that idea.

Have also to thank the whole group for providing this very nice iso.

Regards.
