    So, I have used Grub2Win to boot a Linux ISO I was testing. In booting the test I got an error msg indicating I needed to tweak my grub.cfg file.

    For those that have a hidden System Reserve partition, and boot a Linux system in addition to their Windows system there is an option for a single menu booting all systems including Windows without looping.. Install grub-2.02-x86_64-2dj.txz in the Linux system, use it to install grub2 to the hidden partition, copy the grub.cfg file to the new grub2 folder and change the BIOS to boot that drive before the Windows drive. http://www.slackel.gr/repo/x86_64/current/slackel/extra/grub-2.02-x86_64-2dj.txz...
