Continuing previous deepin and Vector, my customer from Sulawesi Island also ordered Parrot Security OS GNU/Linux in multiboot USB. GLIM Maker does not support Parrot as well. So I did modifications and managed to make it multibooted. You can use my scripts below to make it too. Happy hacking!

Download Parrot OS


Get it from https://parrotlinux.org. At that moment, I used version 4.7.

grub.cfg


for isofile in ${isopath}/parrot/Parrot-*.iso; do
  if [ -e "$isofile" ]; then
    menuentry "Parrot >" --class parrot {
      configfile "${prefix}/inc-parrot.cfg"
    }
    break
  fi
done

This code represents the first page on the bootloader. This particular code section checks whether there is a Parrotblablabla.iso file in /parrot/ directory. If any, then it displays an entry "Parrot >" on bootloader, and if entered it calls out next script inc-parrot.cfg. Please note that Parrot filename is with capital P in the beginning.

inc-parrot.cfg



# Parrot GNU/Linux
for isofile in $isopath/parrot/Parrot-*.iso; do
  if [ ! -e "$isofile" ]; then break; fi
  regexp \
    --set 1:isoname \
    --set 2:version \
    --set 3:arch \
    --set 4:variant \
    "^${isopath}/parrot/(Parrot-([^-]+)-([^-]+)-([^-]+)\.iso)\$" "${isofile}"
  menuentry "Parrot ${version} ${arch} ${variant}" "${isofile}" "${isoname}" --class parrot {
    set isofile=$2
    set isoname=$3
    echo "Using ${isoname}..."
    loopback loop $isofile
    linux (loop)/live/vmlinuz-* boot=live findiso=${isofile} components
    initrd (loop)/live/initrd.img-*
  }
done

This code runs the ISO image file. It boots up the kernel file and the initrd file from within the ISO after activating the ISO in a loopback.

Code Screenshot


See my screenshot below to make sure you put codes in right places.



Bootloader


Working multiboot displays Parrot entry among other entries on bootloader.


Result


Successful multiboot will be able to boot up LiveCD of Parrot. Congrats!
