Hello. Does anybody know how to boot an ISO from hard disk using Grub 2? I want to install Fedora 19 (beta) without burning a CD/DVD or creating a LiveCD USB. I heard in Ubuntu is possible

Thank you!

You can download the netboot kernel and initrd, and then add a grub entry for them, and add repo=hd:device:/path to the kernel arguments. This will boot into anaconda with the ISO image used for installation media.

Did you follow the link I created, called 'netboot kernel and initrd'?
