I have 5 SSDs (DOS/Windows) and I want create a simple boot menu using Windows boot manager + grub4dos & bootice to edit the .bcd file. As of 2020, is still not an easy job...
HD0 - DOS/Windows 3.11 / Windows 2000 (dual boot ntldr)
HD1 - Windows 98SE
HD2 - old Windows10/ Windows 95 OSR2 - dual boot created with EASYBCD - will load Windows 95 via GRUB4DOS
HD3 - Windows ME
HD4 - Windows 10 (NVME) - main drive
Windows boot manager can boot directly to DOS if I save the boot sector and I redirect to that file. I did this with Windows 98/Windows 10 - it was fast and clean. I think it only works if both partitions are on the same drive.
On HD0 it was easy to add Windows 2000 to boot menu, and it simply works by booting directly in 2K.
On HD1 I installed grub4dos with bootice, I copied the files on the drive, but it won t boot to Windows, just grub will showup. I copied default menu.lst to HD1 and picked chainload IO.SYS then it booted from HD2 where is another grub installation. Why?
Stuck at this stage.
How would you do it?
