grub2 boot floppy?
I'd like to make a bootable floppy that will get me to a grub prompt.
I use to be able to:
and it would work fine but now the command doesn't work. Evidently the newer versions of grub2 changed the commands.
sudo grub-mkrescue --overlay=/boot/grub --image-type=floppy grub2.img
sudo dd if=grug2.img of=/dev/fd0
It seems like its designed to make an iso file but not for making a file to fit on a floppy which I know is a little obselete.
I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 but I've got 4 hard drives & 5 different versions of Ubuntu plus Windows & some other distros so its confusing enough to find the right Grub files to begin with.
That's why i just want a boot floppy to get me to a grub prompt so i can manually get to where I want. I have one I made a couple years ago when grub2 first came out & it works but I'm trying to find the commands to reproduce it again. I know i could copy the floppy i already have but I'd really like to know how to make one from scratch.
