Parted Magic 4.3 is released:

This is a bug fix release for the 4.x series of Parted Magic. Not only did some bugs get fixed, but a few new programs were added too. chntpw, nilfs-utils-2.0.12, gdisk-0.2.2, Adblock Plus 1.0.2 are now part of Parted Magic's program line-up. This is a list of fixed bugs from the forum entries: reiser4 support lacking, msftres bug, gFTP Fails to connect to SSH2 computer, Parted Magic 4.2 Clonezilla LILO and keyboard bugs, Clonezilla with Samba - Missing password prompt, Clonezilla not automatically unmounting disk?, Parted Magic 4.2 HDD won't boot, Questions about Pmagic (networking problem), and cloning and swap partitions

These programs have been updated: udev-143, glib-2.20.4, gtk+-2.16.4, e2fsprogs-1.41.7, firefox-3.5, fireftp-1.0.5, clonezilla-2.3.3-65, linux-2.6.30.1, p7zip_9.04, partclone_0.1.1-15, isomaster-1.3.5, roxterm-1.15.1, drbl-1.9.4-45, ndiswrapper-1.55

We also took some time to redo the artwork. Many thanks to Jason Vasquez for heading up this effort. I think it's the best looking version of Parted Magic yet!

Clonezilla live 1.2.2-26 (stable) has been released
This release adds the newer kernel 2.6.30-3 from backports.undebian.org, the new upstream syslinux 3.82, the newer partclone 0.1.1-15, and genisoimage instead of mkisofs. A workaround to avoid using partclone to save FAT filesystems has been added. The package smartmontools has been added. makeboot.sh has been improved to allow USB devices /dev/ub[a-z]. An option "--rescue" has been added in ocs-onthefly for partclone. Some bugs were fixed.

I tried the ISo from Ram method also with this menu.lst (pmagic-4.3.iso (the renamed grubfordos.iso is in the root)
title Boot pmagic-4.3.iso - ISO from RAM

find --set-root --ignore-floppies /pmagic-4.3.iso

map --mem /pmagic-4.3.iso (0xff)

map --hook

root (0xff)

chainloader (0xff)
It loads correctly, shows the parted magic menu but it hangs searcing sqfs filesystem :idea:
same result with this menu.lst
title Parted Magic 4.3 (iso in / and direct mapping and loading new grub4dos configfile)

find --set-root /pmagic-4.3.iso

map /pmagic-4.3.iso (hd32)

map --hook

root (hd32)

configfile /boot/grub/grub4dos.lst

Download "pmagic-4.3.iso.zip" then extract "pmagic-4.3.iso" and place it in your "boot" folder (otherwise do not forget to change the iso_location parameter value) on your UFD.

So, this should work for you too
title Parted Magic 4.3

map (hd0,0)/boot/pmagic-4.3.iso (hd32)

map --hook

root (hd32)

kernel /pmagic/bzImage noapic load_ramdisk=1 prompt_ramdisk=0 rw vga=791 sleep=10 loglevel=0 keymap=it iso_location=/boot

initrd /pmagic/initramfs

map --unmap=0:0xff

Btw: I gave a look at your board-flag, so please note the "keymap=it" value (the related keyboard layout now works fine). :idea:

just tried, I adjusted the menu in order to have the iso (95,4 MB (100.132.864 byte) in the root , the second line looks like
map (hd0,0)/pmagic-4.3.iso (hd32)
but "it seems that the media that contains the pmagic.sqfs could not be found :idea:

Are you sure you are using "pmagic-4.3.iso.zip" (not other versions)?

That ISO should be 99.905.536 bytes.

If you do not use a container folder (that I always use) then the following should work (not tested by me)
find --set-root /pmagic-4.3.iso

map /pmagic-4.3.iso (hd32)

map --hook

root (hd32)

chainloader (hd32)

I have this ver pmagic-grub4dos-4.3.iso.zip
I was told that it can be used for direct iso mapping by icecube on this forum and also from http://partedmagic.c...so-booting.html

The chainloader (hd32) command will boot the bootsector of the iso, which will in turn boot the actual iso.

•When you use the pmagic-4.0.iso from the pmagic-4.0.iso.zip, the chainloader (hd32) command will start isolinux from the iso.
•When you use the pmagic-4.0.iso from the pmagic-grub4dos-4.0.iso.zip, the chainloader (hd32) command will start the grub4dos on the iso.

For both pmagic-4.0.iso variants, you also start the grub4dos menu with:

title Parted Magic 4.0 (iso in / and direct mapping and loading new grub4dos configfile)
find --set-root /pmagic-4.0.iso
map /pmagic-4.0.iso (hd32)
map --hook
root (hd32)
configfile /boot/grub/grub4dos.lst


In this case, no other bootloader takes over the command. So in this case, the /boot/grub/grub4dos.lst config file, will be loaded by the grub4dos version with which you mapped the iso.

This will also work when you have memory mapped the iso.

Your link is the same I linked, and your post is almost what is in the linked page, so: sorry if I do not understand, but does it work for you? :idea:
Have you ever tried to create a containing folder ("boot", just as an example) and the already mentioned entries?
Does it work so?

title Parted Magic 4.3 (iso [b]in /[/b] and direct mapping)

map (hd0,0)/pmagic-4.3.iso (hd32)

map --hook

root (hd32)

kernel /pmagic/bzImage noapic load_ramdisk=1 prompt_ramdisk=0 rw vga=791 sleep=10 loglevel=0 keymap=it [b]iso_location=/[/b]

initrd /pmagic/initramfs

map --unmap=0:0xff
I lose the partedmagic menu option
