below is how I managed to use bootlace. I was unable to get anything else to work to install grub4dos to a hard drive with linux.
I started with grub4dos version 0.4.4. this link works 1jun2016.
used file manager to extract files to desktop. one of the files is named 'bootlace.com' I want to install it to /dev/hdb
in the terminal:
sudo su cd Desktop ./bootlace.com /dev/hdb
in case of permission error message:
sudo chmod 0777 bootlace.com
to place grldr in root:
it should also be on desktop
sudo su cd Desktop cp grldr /
any expertise and info is much appreciated.
