I have downloaded some
ISO file for linux (actually from here: http://minimal.linux-bg.org/download/2018/)
The I have configured it with PXE:
LABEL minimallinux MENU LABEL Minimal Linux KERNEL vmlinuz INITRD /iso/minimal_linux_live_28-Jan-2018_64-bit_bios.iso APPEND iso raw
and got hang or kernel panic.
I was able to boot a lot of ISO-s this way. And I see on booting computer that kernel is downloaded ok, ISO is downloaded and pritouts starting.
Should I be able to boot any
ISO this way? If not, then what are requirements for it?
What are "bios", "uefi" and "mixed" types? Isn't ISO just a container of files, which are mounted as r/o filesystem? How it can depend on it?
I was able to boot with
memdisk is a binary from
syslinux package. What did I do? Where is Linux kernel then? Was it booted from inside
ISO on later stages or it
memdisk is a kernel?
