Presently Xubuntu 18.04 is installed on my system. I want to install Fedora 29 LXDE completely replacing Xubuntu 18.04. '/' is mounted on /dev/sda1 and i have Fedora 29 LXDE iso in a folder on /dev/sda5. I don't have USB/DVD. So i tried booting iso from GRUB using the following menu entry in /etc/grub.d/40_custom:

menuentry "Fedora 29 LXDE" --class fedora { set isoname="Fedora-LXDE-Live-x86_64-29-1.2.iso" set isofile="/Setups/${isoname}" loopback loop (hd0,5)$isofile linux (loop)/isolinux/vmlinuz root=UUID=144ba46c-e53d-4e0f-9da2-5a3d31bb617a rootfstype=auto ro quiet rhgb rd.luks=0 iso-scan/filename=${isofile} initrd (loop)/isolinux/initrd.img } Here "144ba46c-e53d-4e0f-9da2-5a3d31bb617a " is the UUID of /dev/sda5 But i am not able to start installation and instead get dracut-initqueue timeouts. What am i doing wrong?

I suggest a more descriptive title. Your question is about booting the fedora iso
