Hi Igor,

I think you did a mistake concerning the place you ask for help.
This is a support tracker for the FSF project hosting platform
called Savannah:

This is not a generic support place for every free software related question.

Your question seems to be Ubuntu specific so I guess
you ought to go to more Ubuntu specific forum.
see e.g. in:

I loaded Xubuntu 12.04 and 13.04 linux-images from external hard drive, but Xubuntu 13.10 and later linux-image was discontinued to load. I loaded Xubuntu 14.04 from flash drive and hard drive successfully. After updating Xubuntu to release 14.04, I tride to choose iso-image in grub menu:
menuentry "Ubuntu Studio" {
set gfxpayload=keep
loopback loop (hd0,1)/iso/UbuntuStudio/ubuntustudio-14.04-dvd-amd64.iso
linux (loop)/casper/vmlinuz file=(loop)/preseed/ubuntustudio.seed boot=casper quiet splash -- iso-scan/filename=/iso/UbuntuStudio/ubuntustudio-14.04-dvd-amd64.iso
initrd (loop)/casper/initrd.lz
and notebook was rebooted.
