    help with grub config


    hi i just installed tiny core linux and had to manually install/configure grub which i have never done before. since this was the case, i followed the instructions on tinycore's website exactly. they didn't tell me how to add my windows to grub. my windows partition is located on /dev/sda1. what do i do to add it to the grub menu?

    thanks in advanced

    Haven't had Windows on my machine for quite a while, but I believe it would be something like this:

    Code:
    title Windows
    root (hd0,0)
    chainloader +1

    If you have grub stage 1 installed on /dev/sda1 do as jayd512 said
    if you dont have grub installed on /dev/sda1, use this.
    title Windows
    rootnoverify (hd0,0)
    chainloader +1
    Never make any misteaks.
