The grub now reports

error: no menuentry defination
error: syntax error
error: Incorrect command
error: syntax error

Where did you find that stanza? It looks like you just copied/pasted it
wrong :-?

menuentry "debian-6.0.3-amd64-netinst.iso" {
	loopback loop /debian-6.0.3-amd64-netinst.iso linux
	(loop)/install.amd/vmlinuz boot=install.amd iso-scan/filename=/debian-6.0.3-amd64-netinst.iso noeject noprompt --
        initrd (loop)/install.amd/initrd.gz

Sorry, you are right.

The [video=vesa:ywrap,mtrr initrd] is appended accidentally during CCP.
But even with the correct config which you have shown above, I get the
same errors :-(

Weird, because a similar block (same?>:-?) similar worked for you not so
long ago:

Yes I know, and it was with 1.95 and presently I'm with

What is the directory/filename the above  "menuentry" is in?


(hd0,2) is the 2nd partition of pendrive. If I omit the above menuentry from grub.cfg
gurb2 boots fine. As soo as I insert the above config, it throws the error ..

I think there is a language problem here.  Lets try another way.

In Grub(1) 1.97 the the /boot/grub/menu.cfg was the where config information was.

In Grub2 (1.99) the config files, NOTE: files not 1 but many files, are located in /etc/grub.d/. Those are the files you need to use for Grub2.

If grub(1) was able to boot iso files I was not aware of it. I do boot iso files using grub2 but that requires a bit of work on your part, such as putting the iso file in /boot/images.

So I will ask again. Where is the file you have the above mentioned menuentry located?
