Questions about Grub, UEFI,the liveCD and the installer
Before you post please read this
Hi. I have successfully installed Linux Mint 'Gloria' into a 20 Gb, primary, ext3 partition. Into a second 20 Gb, primary ufs partition I have installed PC-BSD. Following this there is a 2 Gb Linux swap partition. The remainder of my 57.7 Gb hard disk is an extended partition containing a logical ext3 partition.
I installed GRUB with Mint and no boot loader with PC-BSD. I am not clear about how I need to modify /boot/grub/men.lst in order to be able to boot PC-BSD. AS you will have gathered, I am very new to all this. Help will be gratefully received.

In this case it is the usual chainloader +1 option to load the other OS bootloader selection
BSD is quite unlike Linuxhttp://forums.pcbsd.org/viewtopic.php?p=29434--suggestion there is to not use bsd bootloader, but only Linux Grub and fixup menu
title PC-BSD 1.2
Remember, in "root (0,2), 0 is your 1st HD, and 2 is the 3rd partition on that drive. In my case, BSD is on my first (and only) HD, specifically on the 3rd partition. In Linux, this is /dev/hda3. If you're unsure, just check your disk w/ qparted, etc. on Linux, and then subtract 1 from whatever partition # is shown there
