Boot from CD or ISO

#1
I've seen this in other bootloaders. I boot from CD's quite often, and it's always a hassle. First find the cd, then turn the computer on, and insert cd. Now Hope I inserted it fast enough, for BIOS to boot from it first, if not reboot. So a nice feature would be an option to boot from CD, once the boot loader appears. I've used Acronis OS Selector, and they have this option, and I must say it really is nice. A feature like this would be nice on my laptop, because I can't seem to ever insert a CD fast enough.

I'm not sure if this one is possible but another nice feature would be to boot from a bootable ISO, stored on the hard disk. I've never seen this in a bootloader.
