Hi all,

I need help on using the GRUB2 fallback option to boot from a different device if the primary device fails to boot. I have googled for the same and found no working solution. I have looked at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1195275 (Grub 2 Fallback section) and http://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?hl=en&ie=UTF8&prev=_t&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=auto&tl=en&twu=1&u=http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/GRUB_2/Skripte&usg=ALkJrhieZ_gg8_H16yjmkVZOJeqj9ruXxg#source-1 (Fallback script section). The script in second one has syntax errors. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Regards,
Ym

Hi bkmnaido,

hope this helps:

I just reviewed it briefly. I've also had a quick look
at the google translation. I have used the german
version and with help from the forum I have managed
to test the fallback successfully.
