GRUB1 (GRUB legacy)

If you want to boot KolibriOS with GRUB, you need to do this:

  • Install Syslinux (if not installed).
  • Copy /usr/lib/syslinux/memdisk to /boot (or take it from distro).
  • Point your config "root"-entry to the partition, where the image resides, and write the kernel-entry with (hd0,0)/boot/memdisk or where ever your linux partition is.
  • Add these lines to your grub.conf:
label KoOS
  root (hd0,0)  # edit this to your correct partition, given example is hda1
  kernel /boot/memdisk
  initrd /boot/kolibri.img

GRUB2

Add these lines to one of the files in /etc/grub (grub.d):

menuentry "KolibriOS" {
       set root='(hd0,5)'    # edit this to your correct partition, given example is sda5
       linux16 /memdisk
       initrd16 /kolibri.img
}

Then run "sudo update-grub".

Limitations

  • The kernel cannot save boot settings.
