Re: Problem with dual boot mint/pclos

Don't know if you're still struggling with this.

If it's any help, I did it the other way around. I installed Mint on a separate hard drive (sdc, first partition) and put grub2 in the boot record of that partition. I then edited my grub menu for pclos (/boot/grub/menu.lst) by adding the following on the end:

Code: Select all

title Boot Mint64
root (hd2,0)
kernel /boot/grub/core.img
savedefault
boot
Now I chainload from grub to grub2.

As an aside, I created a separate swap partition for mint, since I had heard about other people having problems with pclos after mint installation changed the swap UUID. I'd love to know if that was really necessary, but I didn't want to find out the hard way since hard drive space is cheap :)
