I have an old Dell Latitude D610 Windows XP notebook. I'm trying to boot a Linux system on it which will allow the grandkids to access their school work from home. The schools are all closed here. The Linux systems I'm testing are having wifi problems and I'm working on debugging them. But the grub4dos boot menu is not working with the kernel override I'm trying to load. Booting keeps giving me File Not Found errors.
set ISO4=Porteus-CINNAMON-v4.0-k4.19.113-i586.iso title Porteus 4.0 changes=EXIT\n 330MB\n %ISO4%\n Run 'blkid' as root to find all info about drives and partitions. # http://www.911cd.net/forums/index.php?s=&showtopic=25876&view=findpost&p=176070 find --set-root /ISOs/%ISO4% map --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0 /ISOs/%ISO4% (0xff) map --hook root (0xff) #kernel (0xff)/boot/syslinux/vmlinuz kernel /mnt/sda6/porteus40/vmlinuz from=/ISOs/%ISO4% changes=EXIT:/porteus40/changes/porteussave.dat extramod=/porteus40/Modules volume=20 initrd (0xff)/boot/syslinux/initrd.xz
The porteus40 folder is on the same drive as the ISOs folder and I've tried numerous ways of coding the /porteus40/vmlinux location to no avail.
Now the grub4dos system on the Dell is old, Grub4DOS 0.4.5c 2013-03-03, just like the notebook and Windows XP, but worked well up until this adventure. What release can I upgrade to that will support the kernel override and not require a rewrite of all the menus? Or is there is a menu coding trick that will fix the problem?
