Hi nooby.
I just added 39_puppy. I have something else in 40_custom.
I could've added the Puppy entries in 40_custom, though, but since I was trying to figure the correct entry I chose to add a separate file.
The name doesn't matter, only the number.

The =root that's needed is the one after --set and before the UUID number. Otherwise GRUB will complain of a missing argument.

edit- on the other hand, by http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=547523#547523 the
Quote:
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root UUID
isn't really needed for it to work (but I didn't try myself).
But I'll try the other way round. I'll remove
Quote:
set root=(hd0,3)
and see if it works.

It works. So one can use either
Code:
set root=(hdx,y)

or
Code:
--set=root <UUID>

Note that that line has "--fs-uuid" (must be related).

Thanks for sharing. I have to test it. I should be at sleep now
itis 03.00AM soon but I could not fall asleep so I got up
and got curious of if you or anybody else made a comment.

grub2 seems very keen on having the right syntax.
Sure that is important for any boot loader but the others
allow that one edit on the fly while Grub two make the
improper ones invisible instead. Not what I like at all.

I report if I get it to work. I will be traveling and get back
at about 03PM or so and will buy gadgets like DVI to HDMI adapters
whatever they have or is needed for my new Monitor that have HDMI sockets
