Hi all... This a very thin puppy support request.

But Grub4dos and me is like old friends that never had any issues before, but today it seems to somehow fail in what I want it to do.

We all have heard about Android486(Android for PC)

I wanted to have that on a partition in order to utilize some neat apps every now and then and just be able to use some goodies from the Android world.

I installed android to another partition than my FatDog64.

I got a little partition where i keep the boot files(menu.lst etc) and then on Sda2 is Fatdog. On Sda2 i installed Android486, but when i run grub4dos it does not find it.

I then opened and copied all the files in the folder for Android486 (android-4.4-r5 folder) and pasted them into Sda3 hoping that that would help, but no luck.

Anyone got any idea what goes wrong here?

Help us a little bit by giving some info. Let us know how your hard drive is partitioned. Paste your "menu.lst". Execute "blkid" on terminal and let us know the result. Last but not least, what error message do you get?

I can say that I did a "frugal" install using a 4 Gb partition in a usb hd where I installed androidx86 by unetbootin. Read:

You can use a hd partition instead of a usb key. I boot the android partition by plop boot manager which I have as an entry in Grub4dos menu. Read:
