Graphical boot loader (MBR) installers for Linux

Post#1 by tome » 12 Jun 2016, 19:16

GRUB4DOS Installer 1.4 - "grubinst_gui is a GUI frontend to grubinst" (grubinst is utility used to install GRUB4DOS to the MBR of hard disk or image file), it provides a friendly interface to users who are not familiar with the command line environment." It sets only MBR (grldr and menu.lst must be copied manually). More info, sources and binaries (32bit): http://reboot.pro/topic/20238-improving ... ntry191845

DebianDog Installer (Puppy Linux) - "installer for frugall/full USB/HDD using grub4dos/syslinux with option to install from iso or directory". It can install MBR exclusively. Source code and 32bit binary:

Hi tome.

The GRUB4DOS Installer looks interesting. I still use GRUB4DOS on my non-EFI machine but it is via the Windows boot loader.

Have you seen the Grub2Win app? https://sourceforge.net/projects/grub2w ... rce=navbar
