To me a menu with non-selectable menu entries - the normal "embedded" menu.lst - does not count as the grub4dos cannot lock after the user has made a selection in it, because this selection is not possible.....
Why isn't selecting at the internal menu possible? I thought there was a timeout of 1 second. Also, isn't having the timeout invoke the default option the same as selecting the menu item? If it results in a hang, then that's of no use.
JFYI, using 14" wheels on a number of cars is bad because if it snows you cannot mount snow chains and you need to replace the tires with snow tires.
The relevance of this fact is different for someone who lives in Canada when compared to someone who lives in southern California.
I don't think that's analogous enough. It's a bad idea to get into the habit of assuming that you own something that appears to be unclaimed, because others can have the same assumption and this scenario can lead to conflict. That "it's worked for me so far" isn't really the best excuse for doing it when it turns out to be the Wrong Thing To Do, some day.
If you have a never-changing USB stick (or HDD image) with the GRUB4DOS
"master boot track" followed by a FAT partition, you'll be happy for a long time... Until the day comes that you plug it (or image it) into a computer that doesn't have a 512-byte sector and cannot do unaligned sector-reads and it turns out that the code really should've been fit into the 440 bytes, after all. (Just another example.)
To run the shell you do not select anything once in the menu, you just hit the C key.
I understand that we have different definitions, then. I would still call that "selecting the command-line from the menu." I'm not trying to subtract value from your great suggestion [thumbsup that I can't insert] to use the blocklist
command, but it doesn't help if one cannot get out of the menu, which one will always have. I'm sure we could agree that it's unlikely that paraglider cannot access the CLI. I found it odd that paraglider should say "anything" rather than "my entry for booting the .ISO
," if paraglider really didn't mean "anything." [smiley that I can't insert]
Similarly, my suggestion doesn't help if you don't have 32-bit Windows. [wink that I can't insert]
P. S. Can't insert lots of emoticons, today.
