More info needed around dual-booting Windows

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

In order for grub2-mkconfig to find Windows partitions through the 30_os-prober script, the sys-boot/os-prober package needs to be installed. grub2-mkconfig would not find my Windows partition until that was installed. I'm not sure if this is a missing dependency in the ebuild, or something that should be mentioned in this doc somewhere. DarkMoon (talk) 00:58, 20 October 2013 (UTC)


Seems this ebuild version of grub mentions within it's elog statements to manually install os-prober if this feature is desired. I'll make a note.---Roger (talk) 02:51, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

Windows (MSDOS based boot loaders)

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

"When Windows (or another MS DOS based boot loader) is installed on another disk, then regular chainloading in the grub.cfg is sufficient to boot it."

I found that following the directions under the "Another bootloader" section resulted in a blank screen. I'm going to modify this section to reflect the solution that worked for me. --Astronome (talk) 21:34, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
