Split off CycleRob's specific support request into a new thread, Mint 17.2 dual boot, correct Grub entry for Vista, because it does not really match this common Grub2 thread.

Old bugs good, new bugs bad! Updates are evil: might fix old bugs and introduce no new ones.

Sorry, I'm not so good with Grub-loaders yet. But I now trying to understand its command syntax, working on multiboot usb, based on grub4dos and found next kernel boot parameters in (linuxmint-17.2-mate-64bit.iso)/boot/grub/grub.cfg:

Code: Select all

linux   /casper/vmlinuz  file=/cdrom/preseed/linuxmint.seed boot=casper iso-scan/filename=${iso_path} quiet splash --
initrd   /casper/initrd.lz

But there no "cdrom" directory at the disk, "preseed" located at its root. Is it correct parameters? Should I use same things to load from usb -> grub4dos -> linuxmint.iso? Sounds weird... Or maybe that record is like for loading seed after mount distribution disk to /cdrom ?

I have a burnt CD of Grub2, but would like to know if it is ok or not.
I lost the grub menu on this computer and could not boot, as described on this thread:


My Grub2 disc did not recover the system and get the computer to boot. I ended up using the chroot method with success.
How do I know if the disc I have is worth saving for future use or not? Is there a checksum method? Or an equivalent?
