Installation: Archlinux without usb-stick for eeePC 1000H


I have a Ubuntu and a Windows System running on eeePC 1000H. I want to install archlinux without usb on the empty  /dev/sda1, but I can only have 4 primary partitions. I try to edit the menu entry of grub2 to boot the iso-file:

I try three methods...

1. Write ISO-file into /dev/sda1 and manually enter grub2 commands

The method with my parameters here do not work: … usb-drive/

grub do not know the command root.

2. Manually edit menu entry in grub2

After that I downloaded the Linux bootloader to /boot:

and change the menu entry with

$ gksu gedit /etc/grub.d/40_custom
$ sudo update-grub

After reboot grub shows the menu entry in the list, but it does not boot it.

3.  Use grml

Then I try it with grml ( … ry_Example )

$ sudo apt-get install grml-rescueboot
$ sudo mv ~/Downloads/<filename.iso> /boot/grml/
$ sudo update-grub

After reboot grml appears in the list, but it does not boot.

What is wrong ? sad and sad

so long

I have made a personal commitment not to reply in topics that start with a lowercase letter. Proper grammar and punctuation is a sign of respect, and if you do not show any, you will NOT receive any help (at least not from me).
