many thanks :cheers:

I also added this to my grub4dos:
title WMLite VBoot (vboot.mbr->vbootldr->vboot/grub/???)

find --set-root --ignore-floppies /vbootldr.mbr

uuid ()

chainloader /vbootldr.mbr



title Mint 9 VHD, Linux 2.6.32-21-generic

find --set-root --ignore-floppies /mint-9/mint-9-gnome-i386.vhd

uuid ()

kernel /mint-9/vmlinuz-2.6.32-21-generic root=/dev/sda1 vloop=/mint-9/mint-9-gnome-i386.vhd vlooppart=p1 quiet splash

initrd /mint-9/initrd.img-2.6.32-21-generic



title Ubuntu 10.04 VHD, Linux 2.6.32-21-generic

find --set-root --ignore-floppies /ubuntu-1004/ubuntu-1004-desktop-i386.vhd

uuid ()

kernel /ubuntu-1004/vmlinuz-2.6.32-21-generic root=/dev/sda1 vloop=/ubuntu-1004/ubuntu-1004-desktop-i386.vhd vlooppart=p1 quiet splash

initrd /ubuntu-1004/initrd.img-2.6.32-21-generic

Nice to know that Grub4Dos supports booting vhds. I noticed that you have a chainloader to vbootldr.mbr, I assume that you don't really need to go to it to boot the VHD. Do the last two vhd entries appear directly under Grub4Dos boot menu?

Grub4dos does not map the the VHD in VBOOT. It only chainloads Grub2(via vbootldr.mbr ) which uses a VHD module built by VMLite to load the .vhd disk.
