GRUB2 example

Example of a menu entry for Puppy Linux in GRUB2. GRUB2's menu is configured in the plain text file /boot/grub/grub.cfg. Menu entry usually come after the line ###BEGIN /etc/grub.d/10_linux ### :

menuentry 'Slacko 531 Linux (harddrive 1, partition 3)' --class gnu-linux --class gnu {
	echo '1. settings'
	insmod ext2
	set root='(hd0,3)'
	search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 65555554-aaaf-bbb2-a4a5-a4a5a4a5a4a5
	echo '2. loading vmlinuz'
	linux /slacko531/vmlinuz pmedia=atahd psubdir=slacko531
	echo '3. loading initrd'
	initrd /slacko531/initrd.gz 

insmod ext2 - use Linux format filesystem
set root='(hd0,3)' - sets location to look for files (unless harddrive and partition are specified). In this example, the first harddrive is specified hd0 (typically sda), (counts harddrives from 0). The third partition is specified ,3, (counts partitions from 1). The single quotes in '(hd0,3)' are critical, missing them will result in boot failure.
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 65555554-aaaf-bbb2-a4a5-a4a5a4a5a4a5 - sets the partition to search by uuid (different for each partition on different, can be found using GParted).
linux /slacko531/vmlinuz pmedia=atahd psubdir=slacko531 - location of vmlinuz on partition, psubdir specifics location to look for Puppy save file (if frugal installation).
