    Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    I find path to be one of the issues.
    As system is not yet mounted with grub, it is defaults as seen if using live installer, but not if you have booted and mounted using your own mount.

    I have a partition (hd0,7) and in that partition I have my data partition. While data partition once booted is /mnt/data, before mount it just has a bunch of folders, one of which is ISO. So grub will see it as (hd0,7)/ISO. If you do a ls of that from grub's c for command line then you should see your ISO & if you create a textfile for grub stanza, you see that file. The file has to have correctly formatted grub boot stanza, just like you have in 40_custom.

    So is your data partition the hd0,7?
    and is path to ISO this? /Iso/-amd64/ubuntu-mate-18.04.4-desktop-amd64.iso"

    Yes oldfred, my data partition is sda7 (hd0,7). And the path is also correct.

    I'm going to abandon this project at this point as it is taking up way too much of my time. A newer grub was installed in 20.04.2 this morning and I'll work with that rather than 18.04's grub. Thanks to all of you for your assistance and if I ever get a live CD or ISO to mount, I'll report back.

    I know you will get it going, you definitely know what you are doing. If you need additional support, please open up a thread in the Help section.
    I mean no ill will whatsoever, it's just that booting anything live was never included as a part of this Wiki; only booting operating systems.

    Thank you kindly.

    If you ever need help booting operating systems in a custom grub, virtually any Linux OS system, that I can help with, Ubuntu, Arch Linux, Fedora, openSUSE, etc.
