CHR install image in ISO format

Wed Jun 03, 2020 3:19 pm

Is it possible to have CHR as ISO image so it can be installed on virtual machine easily like any linux-based OS?
Sadly provided CHR images are not universal enough so many VPS hosters refuse to install them.

There is currently not an ISO to install a CHR ( aka 64-bit version or ROS )
There is an ISO to install an x86 ROS ( aka 32-bit version of ROS )

I heard that CHR may not have all of the necessary drivers to run on a physical bare-metal system - I may be wrong ...

However , I have been wanting the ability to use an ISO to install a CHR on a bare-metal system since day-1 when the CHR came out.
If x86 ( 32-Bit ) ROS can be installed on bare-metal using an ISO - then why can't CHR ( 64-bit ) ROS also be installed on bare-metal ????
