From title: map*


I have a linux boot environment that is hardcoded to using "partition" 2. I cannot change this environment. I am using grub4dos to boot this environment.


I have made changes to the hard disk, and now the partition that the linux environment uses should be "3".


Is there a way to do the "map (hd0) (hd1)" command, but with partitions? "map (hd0,2) (hd0,3) map (hd0,3) (hd0,2)"?


Is there a way to fake the partition order so that I can re-use the existing bootable linux environment?

The mapping in grub4dos actually mean the "slot number" in partition table.

See here (seemingly unrelated):



You can change the order of the partitions in the partition table slots alright (but of course this is permanent).
