As of now,
netboot.xyz is one of the main way to deploy or use a guest operating system inside Phyllome OS. It is compatible with most (but not all) guest operating systems. This small guide will show you how to deploy a live system inside Phyllome OS.
netboot.xyz.iso should already be located under
var/lib/libvirt/iso. If it's not the case, please use the following command to fetch it, or navigate to the website:
wget https://boot.netboot.xyz/ipxe/netboot.xyz.iso -P /var/lib/libvirt/iso/
The following script, which also doesn't require root privileges, will create a virtual machine called
my-first-live-vm. This virtual machine will be started automatically and added to
Notice the new icon under QEMU/KVM: this is the new virtual machine that has just been created. Go to the section to learn how to interact with it.
Phyllome OS ships with a small ISO crafted by the team behind netboot.xyz, and that can do network boot, allowing it to do network-based installations of the most popular Linux distributions, among other niceties.
There is no disk attached to this virtual machine. As a result, only Live CDs will work out-the-box.
That's it, congratulations!
