Ok sorry for making a new thread. It seemed like the thing todo after a reformat/ reinstall. Anyway below is all the details of my plpbt configuration. Now instead of getting partition not found I am getting file not found. I have been attempting to follow
The forum post at,1456.msg6310.html#msg6310 was also a lot of help. But I do have plpbt.bin in /boot. My /boot is /dev/sda9 What can am I doing wrong with this? I have also attached a picture of my plpbt error. Oh and perhaps it is clear but I have run update-grub2 and out of superstition I also did update-grub.

#exec tail -n +3 $0
menuentry "Plop Boot Manager" {
    set root=(hd0,9)
    linux16 /boot/plpbt.bin

ls /boot
abi-3.16.0-37-generic         memtest86+.bin
abi-3.16.0-70-generic         memtest86+.elf
config-3.16.0-37-generic      memtest86+_multiboot.bin
config-3.16.0-70-generic      plpbt.bin
initrd.img-3.16.0-70-generic  vmlinuz-3.16.0-37-generic
lost+found                    vmlinuz-3.16.0-70-generic

# /boot was on /dev/sda9 during installation

It is all so irritatingly simple especially having it explained so many times yet strangely difficult like nothing I have ever tried to do. Regards



you are using a partition as boot partition which will be mounted by the os to /boot. When you save plpbt.bin to /boot/plpbt.bin then the file is saved in the root directory of the boot partition. Grub is running before the os. So there are no partitions mounted when grub is running. Grub access the partition directly. That means the full path of plpbt.bin on the partition is /plpbt.bin

You have to change the linux16 line. The correct configuration in the grub config is
linux16 /plpbt.bin

Best regards


Perfect. The star field never looked so good!

Thanx, regards.
