I'm having trouble thinking of how this could work. Grub needs a way to know where
to find the correct partition/filesystem. My 2021-01-21 00:06 (UTC-0500) response
included one example:

	search --no-floppy --label --set=root p03res

It remains for the reader to determine the simplest possible example.
