can gujin show the grub menu consistently?
i've tried installing grub on the mbr and other times on the root partition.
gujin hasn't shown me the grub from the root ever. sometimes - not always - it shows me the grub menu item from the mbr.
not sure what is happening here.
Gujin will hide the MBR boot records depending on the "search disk's MBR" tickbox
in its menu (default to hide).
Gujin will by default search Partition Boot Record controlled by the tickbox
"search partition's PBR", that is the only way to boot DOS/Window.
Gujin will select the partition boot records to show, by default only the
DOS/windows ones, you can force all of them to be shown in the menu by checking
the tickbox "keep all partition's PBR".
If a DOS/windows boot record is in a FAT partition, Gujin checks that the filesystem
contains file IO.SYS or MSDOS.SYS because of the usual 2 Hard Disk windows configuration
where the second Hard Disk is not bootable because it has only one FAT partition
without file IO.SYS.
For instance, when the boot sector is obviously not bootable (extended partition
boot record have the 0xAA55 signature but most of the time empty code), it is by
default not shown in the menu.
The recognition of the bootloader (LILO, GRUB, DOS...) works but because Grub
does not have a fixed signature, it may be displayed as unknown.
Does that explain what you are seeing?
