I´ve been testing EFI+GRUB2 ...

I've collected some versions of EFI´s from Windows 8/10 to test
booting from bootia32.efi or bootx64.efi and jump to bootmgr.efi, bootmgfw.efi, etc.

also grabbed the *.efi(s) binaries from Ubuntu, PartitionMagic, Tails, etc.
and tested some combinations in a UEFI boot Virtualbox VM, all working ok.
also download rEFInd and tested graphic menus... working fine


I now want to install all the stuff by hand (hard testing)
and using the most standard versions of available free tools

Anybody knows the site to get the binaries (bootia32.efi and bootx64.efi) to boot grub2...

also the best place to get the grub2 binaries...
and a good tutorial to mount this boot system

I want to make a multi-boot USB something like this...

EFI
    \BOOT
        \bootia32.efi
        \bootx64.efi
        \<grub-binaries>
        \<grub-background-image>
        \<grub-configuration-file>

    \Microsoft
    \Ubuntu
    \Tails
    \Kali
    ...

well good luck with all this...I too have recently been pushed into the whole EFI vs UEFI arena in trying to resurrect and old 2006 iMac (32 bit EFI 1.x)...

 

Grub2 is just GNU GRUB, so poke around on their site  https://www.gnu.org/...b-download.html

Naaah.

It would be easier (for a "dos/windows" guy) to try this:

https://sourceforge....jects/grub2win/

 

It is a project that was announced a lot of time ago on the board, has been some time "on hold" but now it has been revamped:
