Whether it's a "phantom" or a "window" I am interested in understanding how the mechanics of this works.

Hello Amigo!

Thanks for your reply, I do understand that and I just wasn't clear in what I wrote, that what I wanted to see when I plugged in an external drive was the icon appear in the lower left hand corner and a right click would offer a mount read only option. I had hunted through the utilities for a way to no avail.
I do miss seeing the active path precede the cursor. Other little things too but it will just take time to become accustomed to it all. Typing in a bare command to see what the correct arguments are here, etc.
Thanks again for your kind reply!

Thanks Scooby. When I was first thinking about the ISO thing I chose your Alt. 1 (Easy2Boot-grub4dos_v0.5.zip) since I was already using Grub4Dos to boot different versions from different partitions on a read only card and that had worked well. Your files worked well but I had to leave the media rw so that the sdx4 partition could be created. I did read about Easy2Boot back then and I noticed that he was working on a version to use Windows ISOs as well.
Thanks to your reply here, I went back and looked again. Now the new version is out and I saw much more than just Windows added.
Now, an ".isomem" extension is recognized to cause a non-contiguous ISO to be copied to RAM first. It will try to write the sdx4 phantom partition but perhaps it would boot anyway.
Yes!
The new version does work on a read only media!
It does not fail if it can not write the dbx4 partition!
Success, and a big "Thanks" Very Happy

That's from the grub2 part of the thread...in isobooter section, further below, it has:

Quote:
1. Format the flash drive partition as FAT32. Flag it bootable.
