Re: Grub not working

Sorry, missed off the link to the Grub 2 manual



I looked at the manual, but it raises more questions than it answers.
For example:

4.1.2 Chain-loading an OS

Operating systems that do not support Multiboot and do not have specific
support in GRUB (specific support is available for Linux, FreeBSD,
NetBSD and OpenBSD) must be chain-loaded, which involves loading another
boot loader and jumping to it in real mode.

The chainloader command (see chainloader) is used to set this up. It is
normally also necessary to load some GRUB modules and set the
appropriate root device. Putting this together, we get something like
this, for a Windows system on the first partition of the first hard

menuentry "Windows" {
insmod chain
insmod ntfs
set root=(hd0,1)
chainloader +1

First, this is Windows ME, which is fat32, not ntfs. Does that change
anything? I think the set line is ok (Windows ME is on dev/sda1 - the
first partition).

The next question is where does this command actually go? The syntax is
similar to what I have always used in Grub 1 menu.lst.
