Here's an example to launch an iso of gpartedlivecd from Grub2. I always add it on my 40_custom file :

menuentry "ISO Live - GParted Live" {
insmod loopback
insmod iso9660
set isofile="/iso/gparted-live-0.5.2-1.iso"
loopback loop (hd0,5)$isofile
set gfxpayload=800x600x16, 800x600
linux (loop)/live/vmlinuz locale=fr_FR keyb=fr console-setup/layoutcode=fr 
gl_kbd=fr gl_lang=fr_FR gl_numlk=off gl_batch boot=live union=aufs noswap 
noprompt ip=frommedia toram=filesystem.squashfs findiso=$isofile
initrd (loop)/live/initrd.img

There are others examples on this page :

You can use the soft here : to launch one or more iso(s) from an USB key.

In short, Grub2 have made a great job yet.. Now to spread it, it depends on linux distributions to implement it in their isos.

I started this thread quite a while ago (I have asked LQ why it has another user's name on it):

but haven't ever gotten a workable response. I realise that ISOs from different distros are set up differently but is it a feasible/desirable feature to think about for GRUB2?
