rmcellig,

what do you see in sda4/boot/ ?
do you have sda4/boot/i686/ ? what is in it?
or
sda4/boot/grub/i386-pc/ ? what is in it?

also
you write
Quote:
I replaced the code already in the Grub4dos generated menu.lst with the one you posted. Didn't work. I get this error:
Booting Manjaro Linux boot (sda4/boot)
and then
Quote:
setting root to (hd1,3)
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
but your GParted picture showed sda4 as ext4
that seems strange

rmcellig,

one more picture please, what is in /sda4/boot/grub/i386-pc ?

The picture for /sda4/boot/ shows vmlinuz-38-i686 crossed in red.
Is this a broken link?
Can you check on that? Properties should show you.

Do you see any files in /boot/grub/i386-pc that might be useful?

rmcellig,

there is a core.img in /boot/grub/i386-pc
now you can try rcrsn51's suggestion, modified for /boot/grub/i386-pc:
Code:
 title Manjaro Linux boot (sda4/boot)
uuid 3534475a-d82b-4e8e-91c3-e253b619cfbe
kernel /boot/grub/i386-pc/core.img

or perhaps ? [from flash drive]
Code:
 title Manjaro Linux boot (sda4/boot)
root (hd1,3)
kernel /boot/grub/i386-pc/core.img

kernel /boot/grub/I386/core.img


This is what finally worked for me. I learned something else going through this exercise and I thank everyone who helped me in this thread. As usual, I am very grateful!

I'm back after all these months. I just installed the latest manjaro 0.8.8 onto my usb stick using unetbootin.

I want to create a grub menu using grub4dos. So, I booted my slacko CD and opened grub4dos to create the menu.lst file

/dev/sdc2 is where Manjaro installed on my usb stick. These are the files and directories installed in this partition:

file:///media/MANJARO/EFI
file:///media/MANJARO/isolinux
file:///media/MANJARO/loader
file:///media/MANJARO/manjaro
file:///media/MANJARO/ldlinux.sys
file:///media/MANJARO/menu.c32
file:///media/MANJARO/syslinux.cfg
file:///media/MANJARO/ubnfilel.txt
file:///media/MANJARO/ubninit
file:///media/MANJARO/ubnpathl.txt

So how can I configure grub4dos so that it boots properly based on the info I listed above?
