Re: can grub on one disk boot OS on another disk?



The hd[#,#] doesn't refer to the device type (i.e. scsi disk sda) grub operates BEFORE the OS and so that doesn't come into play.

If your IDE device is hd[0,#] than your SCSI device is going to be hd[1,#]

Obviously you must substitute the second # with the partition number your Win 98 OS is on.

My first disk is IDE and called hd0 by grub
My 2nd disk is scsi, it probably won't work if I call it "hd[0,1]" in menu.lst
