Re: Where to put the Grub loader

I was told by someone that since Windows always puts it's loader on

This sounds good at first flash but then a problem. Your BIOS
looking for something to load looks ONLY at the MBR of the first drive
period.

You need a better BIOS. Mine looks at the very least on CD/DVD, USB and the
first hard drive.

So it is not possible to install Grub elsewhere and expect it to
work. I have tried this and yes it is true. It doesn't work.

That advice _did_ suggest modifying the _Windows_ boot loader to find
grub...
