Chainloading Grub4dos & Syslinux between FAT32/NTFS partitons - The Syslinux Project

Thanks in advance Dear group members and Killerdog, RenameUSBDrive. This guide is primarily for external drives such as USB hard drives, USB flash drives, and flash memory cards.

You can label internal disks, but to change their mount points, use MoveMountpointHowto which uses the file called Fstab. This guide covers editing partition labels (disk names) for FAT16/FAT32, NTFS, ext2/ext3, JFS, ReiserFS, and XFS filesystems. External Hard Drive with Grub, Ubuntu and Live Ubuntu. Hey folks,I have an external hard drive, wanted to create something like a "ubuntu live usb"-partition.

External Hard Drive with Grub, Ubuntu and Live Ubuntu

I found some solutions in the web, but i actually want to access "ubuntu live" via a grub entry, since i also want to install a working ubuntu version on that hard disk (and to be ambitious, i wanted to install also a win 7 recovery option, but this is not that important). I have a partition table with MBR and the following partitions:sdb1 420 GB NTFS, primary sdb2 5 GB Ext4, primary boot sdb3 25 GB NTFS, primary sdb4 50 GB Ext4, primaryI tried to do it with the "Startup Disk Creator", but he does not recognize the partitions (and i put the "boot"-flag to sdb2 with GParted).

So my first question is, is there a way to put a live ubuntu on sdb2, a recovery windows on sdb3 and a running ubuntu on sdb4? Boot Error 17 after successful installation (Page 1) / Installation / ArchBang Forums. Here is the result of the bootscript.

HowTo: Revert from grub2 to Legacy Grub. - Page 6. Hi kansasnoob.Actually I've done SO MANY things for the past 2 weeks just making my dual boot work.

HowTo: Revert from grub2 to Legacy Grub. - Page 6

The whole description is in the link below. Starting from post #5, it's all regarding my notebook up to page 6. I think some of your future requests (if ever) are detailed in there already because I've done many experiments. Please try to visit that link.I've dedicated one hard disk for this, so any request from you I am willing to do, especially if it's a new experiment. I've spent restless nights, nevertheless, I'm still willing to solve the problem. View topic - Unable to boot Windows 7 from Grub-1.99-r2. Hi, I've tried migrating to Grub 2, and except not seeing any functional improvements what-so-ever, I can't get the Windows 7 partition to boot.

OS-proper seems to do the job, but Windows just refuses to boot. It does work by changing the boot setup in BIOS, so there does not seem to be anything wrong with the Windows MBR. UsingUUID. Linux now prefers to use UUID (Universally Unique Identifier), LABEL, or symlinks to identify media storage devices on a system.

UsingUUID

Directly using /dev/hd*# or /dev/sd*# is no longer preferred since these device assignments can change between system boots: all filesystems should be specified by UUID=<id> or LABEL=<name> for each partition. all physical devices should be specified by a symlink, like /dev/cdrom for a cd drive and /dev/disk/by-id/... for each physical hard drive. The files for which UUID is most critical: /boot/grub/menu.lst /etc/fstab /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume This page uses the terminal a lot, so if you are new to this, see UsingTheTerminal.
