Haha well yes I am just a little confused but as the general consensus is frugal I think i'll reformat the drive and start again. Smile

The original problem was the boot loader entry for Tahr64.
Grub2 is probably being used as boot loader (guessing)
It is not going to know how to set up an entry for Puppy Linux.
What I posted earlier is what you will probably need to do.
Manually enter the correct entry in the Grub2 boot menu.

If you are going to have multiple Linux and Windows OS's on a computer.
Getting a boot loader to recognize all of them and have working boot menu entries, is always a problem.

The Grub4dos Boot loader in Puppy Linux can do a good job of guessing what entry will work.
But not 100% perfect with some Linux OS's.
Usually gets Windows OS's correctly.
Grub4dos Config run from a booted Puppy Linux will set it up and install.
The latest version of Grub4dos Config
