    How about Windows iso?

    • Avalon-Zone says:

      Don’t know about MS Windows ISO but you can boot VHD files with Windows 7 Enterprise/Ultimate and with Windows 8 Enterprise/Professional without any problem. The better is to install Windows Server 2012 (An soon 2012 R2) as a Native system then make the VHD you want by creating virtual computers in HyperV (Any MS OS will work as a charm) Sysprep you installation and modify your Bootmanager configuration with BCEDIT… 😉

    You forgot update-grub

    Let me make sure yet, but if there is a security flaw here. Some crafty user can change entries in the grub as it has escalated privileges via sudo. In this way it can run the system in which you have the right root. It can, for example, run the Linux Kali. After reboot, can do whatever he wants with the machine. Am I right?

      No you’re not right. Before you get too excited, That “crafty” user would have to have been setup in /etc/sudoers first which kinda suggests they would be a “trusted” user on the system already. Also you don’t need to reboot, sudo -s will “pop” you a root shell right there.

      Look Ma, I’m owning my system…. oh no that’s just how it’s suppose to function.
