@fredx181,
Yes. There is a file sda.63s and I had seen a msg as you said.
Restoring the Win8 bootloader would take me back to the 'win only' area (not desired).
So pl. help me adding entry for Windows in grub4dos menu.lst.
Thanks.

Ok, find the file "menu.lst" probably it's on sda1 and edit it by opening with leafpad or geany.
Add above the other entries (if you want as first, default) the Windows entry, so becomes something like this:
Code:
title Load BOOTMGR of Windows 8
root (hd0,0)
chainloader /bootmgr

title BionicDog - porteus-boot Always Fresh
 uuid <UUID>
 kernel /casper/vmlinuz from=/ nomagic base_only norootcopy
 initrd /casper/initrd1.xz
 
title BionicDog - porteus-boot in RAM (no save)
 uuid <UUID>
 kernel /casper/vmlinuz from=/ copy2ram
 initrd /casper/initrd1.xz

.....
.....

And save the file.
Again, not sure if it works for you, but nothing to lose by trying, for me it worked for earlier Windows 7 and now also for Windows 10.
EDIT: Above Win entry assumes that Windows is on sda1.

Fred

Win8 is on sda2.
sda1 is 'system reserved'.
Which option should I change then? maybe like this --
root (hd0,1) .....assuming the index is zero based.
(the file is named lickmenu.lst because I had used lick bootloader for xenialpup. But it has been uninstalled before BionicDog installation by using its own 'uninstall lick'). Still the name of file is lickmenu.lst

I don't know about lick installer, the file to edit is "menu.lst" as created by Bionicdog installer.

I was editing a wrong file (lickmenu.lst).
I did not find menu.lst on Win8 partition (gave a search from FM).
I am wondering from where it is being loaded?

Ah, sorry, I forgot how the installer works exactly, probably menu.lst is on sda6 then ?

PostPosted: Wed 22 Aug 2018, 08:27    Post subject: docs/tut about boot options  

I am looking for a tutorial/docs regarding boot options in BionicDog.
Wish to understand what are the pros/cons or characteristics of each boot option.
Searched this website but could not locate it.
May I pl get a url wherein it is explained?
Thanks.

Hi !
Have a look here:

https://github.com/DebianDog/MintPup-Trusty/wiki/Boot-methods

I would advice you to concentrate on Porteus Boot Methods because they are more commonly used ( a better Chance to get Help/Support)
Although it is under the Label of Mintpup Trusty it works for all "Ubuntu Dogs" in general.

Here the Link to Boot Methods for Debian Dogs:
https://github.com/DebianDog/Jessie/wiki/Boot-methods

Hi d_vineet
It's on first post:
Quote:
Specifications:
Built from an absolute minimal Ubuntu by using debootstrap.
Kernel: 4.15.0-22-generic
Boot Method: porteus-boot , see examples Here

Examples Here
Read specially the last paragraph: "Recommended to put the casper folder in a folder with unique name .... ...."
This to avoid possible conflict if you have more than one installs.

Fred

WoW !! Pure Art, great work ETP !
Almost couldn't believe this in based on my little "doggie" Laughing
Very nice demo also, btw.

Any plans to offer this remaster up to us poor, drooling, panting masses?

+1 , would be nice if you share ISO, maybe as project with your own custom name or share here and I can put a link on first page.
Is it done with all changes in save storage or did you do a remaster ?

Fred

Hi Fred & Moat,

Install from the files on the BionicDog64_2018-06-04-firmware_all.iso, were to a 3 partition 32GB USB3 stick.
( 125MB vfat / 200MB vfat/ 29.8GB ext4 )
The syslinux.cfg on the first boot partition contains the following single active line:

Code:
default /bionicdog/vmlinuz initrd=/bionicdog/initrd1.xz noauto from=LABEL:ETP3/bionicdog/ copy2ram changes=EXIT:LABEL:ETP3/bionicdog/casper/


The Cinnamon version is still very much beta with some outstanding issues. As an example I have not yet been able to establish a wireless connection.
Given that I have no previous experience of doing battle with systemd I was surprised when I at least got to the stage where I could produce
the progress demo video.

Changing over to Cinnamon was something I could not resist attempting when I saw the potential to do so in Fred's doggie.
All changes to date are in the changes folder on the 3rd partition. There has been no remaster or attempt to produce an ISO.
The finishing line seems tantalisingly close but no cigar as yet.

My gut feeling is that it will take a team effort to cross the line with input from members with expertize in systemd & wireless.
I think that the video shows that the prize would be worth the effort and see from the first post in this thread that such members
have contributed to DebianDog or StretchDog development in the past.

What I propose then, if you are agreeable Fred, is to pass this project over to you with written notes, custom config files,
a compressed copy of the changes folder and/or a bootable image for an 8GB or 16 GB stick.

If having tried it you wish to adopt the Pup, I will be happy to contribute in any way I can.
