Vinny Gambini: I object to this witness being called at this time. We've been given no prior notice he would testify. No discovery of any tests he's conducted or reports he's prepared. And as the court is aware, the defense is entitled to advance notice of all witness who will testify, particularly those who will give scientific evidence, so that we can properly prepare for cross-examination, as well as give the defense an opportunity to have his reports reviewed by a defense expert, who might then be in a position to contradict the veracity of his conclusions.
Judge Chamberlain Haller: Mr. Gambini?
Vinny Gambini: Yes, sir?
Judge Chamberlain Haller: That is a lucid, intelligent, well thought-out objection.
Vinny Gambini: Thank you, sir.
Judge Chamberlain Haller: Overruled.
After launching XP rebooting to Win 7 hd0,0 is still hidden so surely will break G4D as boot lader
That is a lucid, intelligent, well thought-out objection, BUT
it is based on assuming
(as opposed to searching/reading/learning
Not only menu.lst
but also grldr
(if booted through grldr.mbr or the partition boot-record, NOT if chainloaded from NTLDR/BOOT.INI) can reside on ANY partition, as long as it is formatted in one of the recognized filesystems:NO MATTER
whether hidden or not.
Oh one more thing where is the best place to stash the menu.lst & grldr file?
Drives are scanned following a pre-set order:
Obviously, if you have a zillion disks with an umptillion partitions on each, if you put these files on (hdm
), it will take some time before it starts booting....
So, yes, (hd0,0) is the first disk and partition scanned, so it's the most advised/fastest (but if you have one single disk and three partitions it won't make any practical difference).
Putting menu.lst in a hidden partition is on one hand a (very light but effective) form of security, but on the other is a nuisance if you have to edit it....
...decisions, decisions, always decisions....
Now that you have grasped the concept of "symmetry" in hiding/unhiding, it's time to introduce the concept of "conditional" hiding/unhiding.hide
are "traditional" GRUB legacy commands ported into grub4dos, which has however another command, hiddenflag
