Re: Grub boot-loading HAMMER
After these install procedures, I tried using grub to load the slice.
I tried chainloader'ing it, as well as specifying a kernel
/boot/loader. The first gave me an Error 13: invalid or unsupported
execution format" and the second an Error 17: unable to mount
Does anyone have suggestions for getting Grub to dual-boot a HAMMER
DragonflyBSD? If this is hopeless, what can I do to place the
absolute minimum amount of code on a bootable non-HAMMER area, and the
dominant part of DBSD in Hammer?
Hopeless. You'll at least need a /boot UFS partition. Also you'll
probably have to modify grub to read DragonFly disklabels (although I
have a setup here booting with grub, so I don't know how I managed that
:). Oh yes, you'd need a disklabel32, not a disklabel64 to have the
slightest chance of making grub work.
Or try a /boot in ext2, then also grub should be able to read it :D
Alternatively you could try using a chainloader in grub.
