What would you like to do?
My own configuration file for GRUB2 to boot various live distributions of Linux-based operating systems, along with some system tools. I tried to include a lot of sample configuration entries, even if I don't currently use them, so it may help others. Exceedingly long blog post: http://tehfishyblog.logdown.com/chips/306146-a-homemade-ultimate-bo…
# Config for GNU GRand Unified Bootloader (GRUB) (2)
# /boot/grub/grub.cfg
# or
# /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
# This grub.cfg file was created by Lance http://www.pendrivelinux.com
# Suggested Entries and the suggestor, if available, will also be noted.
# and then improved by Pysis.
# Improvement Sources:
# https://www.pendrivelinux.com/boot-multiple-iso-from-usb-via-grub2-using-linux/
# Used GRUB2 with command `grub2-install` instead, along with the `--boot-directory` parameter.
# If you get an error about failing 'to get a canonical path', or folders not existing on the device, then again, you need to run the command as a privileged user.
# If you get errors concerning a bad superblock, and unable to install grub, try rewriting the filesystem again.

# Notes:
# - For variables, be sure to use double-quotes to have them actually resolve in the string.
# - Need to re-declare variables inside sub-menus because they open a new "context"..... great..

# - Separate different types of booting options into more grub config files, if possible. Look into it.

I had to extract the ISO for Windows 7,8.1,& 10 and put them on an NTFS partition on a usb drive. With a small linux partition on the front.

working

menuentry 'Windows 10' {
set root=(hd0,7)
insmod part_msdos ### This line is not necessary ###
insmod ntfs ### This line is not necessary ###
insmod ntldr
drivemap -s (hd0) ${root} ### This line is not necessary ###
ntldr /bootmgr
}

Hello, I don't understand $grub4dosPath, $toolPath, $hbcdPath, and $menuLstPath.

hi, when i try to boot from live iso my system give error "Secure boot forbids loading module from (hd0,gpt9)." I have Kde Neon user edition installed on sda9 and iso file located on an ntfs patition (hd0,gpt5). Is it necessary to disable secure boot or is there any workaround?
And is it necessary to add gpt before partiton number
