Hi,
I have downloaded a LinuxLiveGamers ISO image. it is 4.7G. there is no install option in that ISO, so one can not make a bootable USB for installation to a Hard disk.

How can i copy the contents of this ISO image to a partition on my hard disk and just use as just like other installed OS on the hard disk.

thank you for your answers..

Hi,
It is bootable but once the linux is loaded there is no option for installation to hard disk, like i can do with other distros of linux. This means i always need to run it Off of a DVD or something like that.
I want to copy the ISO contents to a disk parition the same way i install an OS and then boot the gamers linux from the Hard disk.

I know about these software, For these software to work i need an OS running already.
Please check my response to rgd1101, I want to copy the contents of a bootable ISO to a partition of the disk and then boot from that partition.

you don't install it. it already bootable, create a new partition on your hdd, and clone the dvd to the partition. not sure what you need to make it selectable on a boot up, probably need to find a boot manager.
