Booting iso without USB flash?

Is it possible to boot to EOS directly from hard drive, without creating bootable usb drive?

It is. But you could only create a VM machine. You won’t be able to install it to metal on the same drive though. You cannot install on a drive currently in use.

Thanks for answer. While vm is not a solution, i appreciate your help.
I have a second ssd that is not in use. I thought that there is something similar to creating a usb drive?

You could boot an ISO from the Grub boot menu. See this post from @manuel for how to add en entry for the ISO:

Once booted up you could install to another partition (than the one containing the iso) on the same drive or to any other drive you wish.

Thanks it worked.
Just in case tried to recreate this process in Windows.
So it was easy as copying content of ISO to partition and renaming it to EOS_202111.
