My grub4dos USB stick does not recognize the "set" command. i.e. "set foo="hi"" results in "error 27: Unrecognized command" error.
Maybe I just need to get a later version. The download page shows 0.4.4 deing the latest but that is from 2009. I could not get the latest from git to configure on my ubuntu precise machine.
I have a 0.4.4 grub.exe I got from a MultiBootUSB 4.7 disk. My usb stick uses grub2 in its MBR. I use "linux /grub.exe --config-file=mymenu.lst" to pass controll to grub4dos. When I run a menuitem that uses "set" I get the error.
I have reasearched and believe that the "set" command comes from wenv from grubutils. My grub4dos does not have "insmod" but it has "module". When I try "module /wenv" it complains "error 20: Multiboot kernel must be loaded before modlues". I can not find any information on the multiboot kernel.
I have also tried compliling the latest from git but after hitting the 3rd .configure error, I gave up.
Can someone give me some advice on the most straght forward route to gettting a recent version of grub4dos that I can laod from grub2 that has all the modern features enbaled?
