Boot ISO Image From Your Hard Drive With Grml-rescueboot

With grml-rescueboot there is an easy way to boot an ISO image from your harddisk to test other linux distributions.

To install open a terminal and :
sudo apt-get install grml-rescueboot
or use software-center, synaptic....

Then move the ISO image ( e.g. elementaryos-stable-amd64.20130810.iso ) to /boot/grml/ :
sudo mv elementaryos-stable-amd64.20130810.iso /boot/grml

Update Grub 2 with the following command :
sudo update-grub

Generating grub.cfg ...
