ISO on android

Is it possible to boot an android from an ISO? I don't mean using my phone to boot a computer, but actually booting my phone.

However I did get an ISO from Android x86 to make bootable DVD and USB memory sticks. But that was not what you asked to do. Very few machines can boot from an ISO.

Again, I can create bootable media from said ISO but that's not booting from the .ISO is it?

All the roms to date require installing. No way to date to boot off the .ISO. My bet is they are mixing up what you could do on a PC.

I don't know if he's trying to root his phone.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
