I am working on Grub4Dos and have gone through all of the Senior Member posts especially Jaclaz .
I have all the tools ready with me including grub4dos gui, mbrldr etc however I'm right now overwhelmed with all the information not able to summarize what exactly I need to do in order to accomplish the following.
My requirements are >>
(1) Install Grub in a Logical Hidden Partition. I've created a CD-ROM ISO which is made using EasyBoot and I would like to extract its contents to that Hidden Partition, extract the boot file from ISO and use Grub to load it. So, that when I boot to this partition, the EasyBoot menu comes up. I have gone through loading ISO Images directly however I'm trying to load it after extraction. (If this is not possible at all, I will boot ISOLinux)
(2) I want to assign a shortcut key (any function key) so that in case primary partition gets corrupt or anything including Boot.ini, I'm still able to jump to Grub using a Shortcut key etc.
(3) I want to avoid any association with the Primary Partition wherever possible if not completely.
