I have tried all ways to boot the PCLOS iso from grub2 and it either dies with kernel panic (can't find init) or cannot find the loop file which I assume is livecd.sqfs. In the legacy case I can see it being found on sda1 (it searches all available drives and stops at sda1 having found it) as that is where I extracted it. In grub2 I cannot figure a way to tell it to search the loop mounted iso for the livecd.sqfs (I remove it from mainboot for grub2 tests) The initrd runs fine and hardware detection is OK - until it tries to hand over to the live image.
My last attempt was :-

       menuentry "iso test" {
       loopback loop (hd0,1)/pclinuxos-lxde-2010.1.iso
linux (loop)/isolinux/vmlinuz boot=(loop)/livecd vga=788 fromusb root=/dev/sda1 acpi=on fstab=rw,noauto
       initrd (loop)/isolinux/initrd.gz

livecd.sqfs is in the root of the extracted iso.

Any ideas?
