PostPosted: Thu 23 Nov 2017, 23:10    Post subject:  How to configure grub2 for full install Legacy OS 2017?  

Started with LUbuntu 15.04 on Presario 2500 with 60 Gbyte HD that already included GRUB2 installed on MBR then repartitioned with:

20 Gbyte for LUbuntu (ext4),
13 Gbyte (ext2) with frugal Wary puppy installed, and
8 Gbyte (ext2) with full install of Legacy OS 2017.

Now I've updated grub2 40_custom file to include booting Wary which works because I found several examples of grub2 menue-entry statements should be but only for Frugal install. Can anyone give me example of what the grub2 (not grub legacy) statements would be for a FULL install of Legacy OS 2017 be?

I noticed my full install of Legacy os 2017 didn't have the initrd.gz file inside the /boot dir so I removed it from the menu-entry. Was that correct? Anyways, when I try to boot Legacy it just gets a kernel panic and reboots.

40_custom file:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
exec tail -n +3 $0
#echo "Adding 40_custom menu entries." >&2
# This file provides an easy way to add custom menu entries.  Simply type the
# menu entries you want to add after this comment.  Be careful not to change
# the 'exec tail' line above.
menuentry 'Wary Puppy (frugal) HD 0, partition 3' {
insmod ext2
set root='(hd0,3)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 740fbe79-f67c-49a3-9b6f-e1f3b06e2cdc
echo   'Wary Puppy ...'
linux   /wary/vmlinuz pmedia=atahd psubdir=wary
echo   'Loading initial ramdisk ...'
initrd   /wary/initrd.gz
}
# Next entry (not working yet)
menuentry 'Legacy Puppy (full) HD 0, partition 4' {
insmod ext2
set root='(hd0,4)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 26f09c1b-42e1-4f71-9dfa-3e1cc2c94702
echo   'Legacy Puppy ...'
linux   /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda4 pmedia=atahd
}
