Title: Error: file not found
Post by: ClariBob on July 10, 2012, 22:32:20 PM
Howdy,  I used the Plop Boot Manager as a Grub2 menu entry for my Ubuntu 10.10.   So I could boot from USB.  This worked well for a couple years.   Recently, I wiped my ACER HD and then installed Ubuntu 12.04.  I partitioned the ACER like this:

/dev/sda1 ext2  /boot
/dev/sda2 ext4  /home
/dev/sda3 ext4 /
/dev/sda5 swap

Here's my /boot/grub/grub.cfg (40_custom)

menuentry "Plot Boot Manager" {
     set root=(hd0,1)
     linux16 /boot/plpbt.bin
}


I placed your plpbt.bin in /boot

When I arrow down to the Plop Boot Manager entry in Grub2, instead of the Plop menu, I get this:

error:  file not found
Press any key to continue.....

Any suggestion as to why this is happening ?

Thanks !
ClariBob

hi,

/dev/sda1 ext2  /boot
/dev/sda2 ext4  /home
/dev/sda3 ext4 /
/dev/sda5 swap

menuentry "Plot Boot Manager" {
     set root=(hd0,1)
     linux16 /boot/plpbt.bin
}

I placed your plpbt.bin in /boot

/boot is an own partition. that means /boot/plpbt.bin is in the root directory of the partition sda1. so you have to use "linux16 /plpbt.bin" in the grub config.

best regards

Hi. I am having the same issue. I have done the following changes and still doesn't work:

Remove /boot from the 40_custom file
changed from '.com' to '.bin'
changed from hd0 to hd1

None of this solutions have worked, my boot is installed in sda1. Ubuntu 14.04

Thanks

In MultiSystem USB key (http://liveusb.info/dotclear/), this solution is used :

menuentry "Plop Boot Manager 5.0.15" {
  search --set -f /boot/plpbt.bin
  linux16 /boot/plpbt.bin
}
