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:

viewtopic.php?f=46&t=221781&start=20

My Grub2 disc did not recover the system and get the computer to boot. I ended up using the chroot method with success.
Question:
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?

Yes, and since you have Mint, Grub almost certainly is already installed. Try pressing and holding the Shift key as your machine boots, and it should show up. It looks a bit like this:

If you want to install another OS, the installer will set-up grub for you. The new OS will be first on the list.
I suggest you bookmark this site, read it carefully so you understand what you want to do.
