grub 2.02 beta once installed prevents grub legacy install

Post#1 by francois » 01 Oct 2015, 01:08

Since the event of grub 2.02 beta, once installed on the hdd, it prevents grub legacy install. Grub 2 is so heavy to work with.

Do anyone knows a turnaroud?

Maybe the old knoppix could be the solution:

install-mbr /dev/sda

See ms-sys instead, which is not good for ntfs or windows7 and after.

Code: Select all

ms-sys -h

Knoppix last download:
ftp://ftp.freenet.de/pub/ftp.uni-kl.de/ ... -28-EN.iso

Install on usb key:

Code: Select all

dd if=/path/to/iso/knoppix.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=4M;sync
Trying that now.

Note or Nostalgia:
I got to know knoppix before slax, now that I remember, at the beginning of 2000's. On windows this was my first frugal install of linux. The poor man install which was some equivalent of the porteus frugal install:

Install-grub does, this command is not on knoppix. You have to use ms-sys which is not good for ntfs or windows 7 and after systems.
