    Greetings!

    Is it possible to setup a dual boot with an installed Ubuntu and installed Windows and have options to boot from ISOs that are stored on the harddisk? Something like this would make a great setup for a diagnostics machine

    In theory yes but it'd get rather messy to set up. It'd be easier to make a usb stick w/ various ISOs with something like YUMI or xboot.

    Interesting thought. I've got all my boot ISOs on a custom m.2 external thumb drive.
