[SOLVED] dualboot windows - porteus (Easybsd)

Post#1 by roelof » 25 Oct 2013, 14:16

Hello,

I found this tutorial where a dualboot Windows 7 and Porteus is explained (http://www.porteus.org/tutorials/37-ins ... ndows.html)

But on my version (2.0.2.182) there is no option named grub is not installed on mbr.
I have a checkbox named Use Easybsd's copy of Grub.

So no menu.lst is being made so I cannot boot into my porteus system.

Anyone who can give me pointers how to proceed now.
Or schould I use the tab NeoGrub now.

I found it out myself.

Instead of going to the Linux tab you have to go to the neogrub part.
There you can copy the script from the manual and then everything works fine.

A very interesting link. But I am unable to read the dark blue on black text. Are there any plans to change the background? Or am I missing something?

Never mind, highlighting the text with the mouse worked.

Thanks. One of the caveats of moving from a light web template to a dark one. Fixed now.
