Grub4dos Example Menus. Chainloading Grub4dos & Syslinux between FAT32/NTFS partitons - The Syslinux Project. Killerdog, on 19 Jul 2011 - 9:20 PM, said: hi, everybodyi try to do something like this but with xboot (tools like saardu):all my tools in a FAT32 partition with syslinux, and a second partition in NTFS for all my windows Disk for installation purpose, and a live windows 7 with some tools (in a VHD format).i need it in NTFS because the size of the iso and VHD (4.5Go per windows disk and a 30Go VHD image for the live windows 7)I can't find exactely how i need to do to make it works,send a command (in syslinux.cfg) with syslinux to go to the second partition and launch grub4dos so i can launch win live/install, and go back to syslinux partition for the rest of the tools.Can you help me please ? Thanks in advance Dear group members and Killerdog, though this thread is a bit older I am deeply interested in your setup.

Yesterday I tried to boot my old PC -- Elitegroup K7S5A with AMIbios - by an old 1GB thumbdrive UFD....Took me 2 hours to get it working! No matter what I did. SincerelyPR. 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. By default, external drives automatically mounted at /media/disk then /media/disk-1 and so on.

This is not very helpful when trying to find the drive you are looking for, especially if you have multiple devices plugged in. When choosing labels, be sure that the new mount point /media/<label> does not already exist since the directory will be created when the disk is mounted. The file manager (Nautilus) currently does not support renaming disk partitions, but Gnome's Partition Editor (GParted) does. Open the System > Administration menu and see if there's an entry for GParted (previously Partition Editor). Identify your Partition mount. 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. 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?

I did not find any answers to that, so I thought about the option of placing an ubuntu iso file in a ubuntu version on sdb4, and creating a grub entry pointing to that iso.

Hi kansasnoob.Actually I've done SO MANY things for the past 2 weeks just making my dual boot work. 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. I can reformat the Windows partition anytime, I have a handful of resources - bootable USB sticks, various Linux ISOs, working Dual-boot desktop, external DVD, etc... so don't hesitate if we really need to try an experiment. I just want Dual-boot to work in my notebook.I also have tried super grub2, BUT IT DOES NOT BOOT, instead, infinite loop after POST. Gentoo Forums :: 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. My disks are set up as (sorry about the Swedish): So let me try to explain this sdc1 is the partition were grub is located. I've labeled all drives, and used to use UUID/Labels to boot in grub-legacy (this is kind of the reason why I don't see the gain of grub 2) and it worked well.

This is my setup from Grub legacy: When translating this to grub2.cfg, the automatic output is: If I try to boot using this, I get The one that grub2-mkconfig outputs is simpler, and just says and that says "No such drive: 46bb-2319" or something like it. This one just stops at an empty screen saying "GRUB _" at the top left corner. UsingUUID. Linux now prefers to use UUID (Universally Unique Identifier), LABEL, or symlinks to identify media storage devices on a system. 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. The Fstab page provides some excellent examples of UUID in action. UUIDs can be determined using the blkid command. Here are examples (your output will be different, but similarly formatted). Sudo blkid produces an output similar to: Alternatively you can list them from their listing in your root filesystem: ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid/ [SOLVED] grub: Error 15 File not found... when file present.
