win32 loader for Arch Linux?

Hi all,

Do you know any project like the win32 loader of Debian/Ubuntu for Arch Linux is on-going?

I am really interesting to install Arch Linux this way on my Windows laptop, than to use VMware or VirtualBox.

It is a program (.exe file) on Windows to let you install Debian(or Ubuntu) Linux inside Windows without modifying your disk partitions. Actually, the installed Linux image is a file on Windows filesystem, and you can boot into it via the boot menu of GRUB.

FYI:

For Ubuntu: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/install.exe/Prototype
For Debian: http://goodbye-microsoft.com/more.html

cyt,

As far as I know there is no such thing already prepared for Arch Linux, but it is not such a complicated thing to achieve.

Look for documentation about it. Once i checked and google is prety documented.

Re: win32 loader for Arch Linux?

i didn't know about those solutions, but this looks quite interesting as a concept.
i don't know such things on linux either, but you can try some virtualization programs, such as vmware-server (free as in beer).


what goes up must come down
