Amiga & AROS Icaros Desktop, the popular distribution of the AROS Research Operating System, has recently released its version 1.5, a new milestone since it finally allows to run classic Amiga software and games on full screen or perfectly integrating them into the host AROS desktop.

Grub 2

Is there any way I can boot Icaros 1.5 from ISO on a memory stick, using it as a loopback device in Grub 2?

I got to the aros splash image after the kernel loading text, but from there it would not go anywhere. Resetting through the keyboard would restart the splash screen again.

Would be nice to add it to my USB stick which I have several distros on, booting from ISO.

Thanks!

No, it can't be booted from an ISO image, but it can boot from USB if it's given a native partition. This is most easily done by booting the ISO in a VM, and then using the InstallAROS utility found on the desktop to install to a USB stick attached to the VM. Extra tip: disable USB 2.0 if using VirtualBox.
