Snippet 0x0E: Booting image files and ISOs with KVM/QEMU (EFI and BIOS)
For my job, I work with file systems and image files a lot: Every day, we mess with Grub, the partition tables (MBR/GPT), EFI and BIOS systems, etc. So pretty much every day, I need to boot some image file or investigate why some image didn’t boot.
This (super duper) short post shows how to boot image files using straight kvm commands.
