chainloading

#1 Post by Jerry3904 » Fri Jun 08, 2018 5:32 am

Following up on a post on one of our MANY SOCIAL MEDIA, I looked for directions on chainloading in the Wiki or the Users Manual. Then searched the Forum (well, for the first few pages...).

I know a lot of people here talk about it, but I have personally never done it. I don't have time ATM to chase it down and test it, so I would appreciate help on this. I need a clear Wiki entry that I can link to from the Users Manual, and perhaps we can do the writing here in this thread before transferring it over to the Wiki.

(I don't remember a DO video on this topic, but maybe I missed it--if yes, sorry.)

TIA

I found this which seems pretty comprehensive, but having never done it myself either, maybe someone who has, can comment as to whether the entry is a good appraisal?

I've done all available chainloading I can think off.
between grub2 / grub 1 / mbr / *efi / syslinux 'mbr' etc
So if you give me some time I might boil down this to
reusable contribution to the wiki.

I'm confused, is there a way to sign up to edit the wiki?
