View Full Version : [ubuntu] will the grub reinstall work for other linuxes besides Ubuntu?

I was thinking about installing Arch or Faun OS onto a USB drive like I did with Ubuntu. I would need to relocate all of grub's files so that I will not get an error when the drive is not plug in. I used this code to relocate the files.

Into the terminal (in Ubuntu) I typed:

sudo grub
find /boot/grub/stage1
root (hd?,?)
setup (hd?)

*I replaced the ? with the directory of the USB drive

Would this same method work if I typed this code into a Terminal in Arch for example?

Thanks in advance

It should, yes.
