    Why don't you try this instead. Reinstall PCLOS Grub2 replacing AntiX Legacy grub boot-loader to the MBR. Then Maybe PCLOS grub 2 will pick up the AntiX install in it's grub2 boot-loader. You can use the PCLOS live cd or DVD to do this I am sure.

    (SOLVED)Restore GRUb boot order after 2nd OS install?

    If PCLOS Boots up after this fix. You might have to run

    Code:
    update-grub2
    as root in PCLOS if AntiX does not show up in you grub2 menu screen (unless it is like Ubuntu grub2 and just goes to a splash screen instead of a menu).

    But. I am not sure anything will work because you don't seem to know how to install grub to root. Even on a reinstall of grub. If you knew how to do that. My chainload post would have worked probably for PCLOS Linux grub entry in AntiX.

    2nd Edit: just some more info: http://pclosmag.com/html/Issues/201101/page10.html Edit: ignore this link as it is from 2011 and is when PCLOS used Legacy Grub instead of grub2 which is what it uses now.

    After looking around. Just reinstall PCLOS grub 2 to MBR and it should pick up AntiX OK.

    Thanks Roky, but I'll think I'll wait to see if anyone posts the PCLinuxOS gnome grub file here since I can not install grub correctly.

    This problem of mine has been Solved!!

    Grub needs a "root" statement so it can find the right (disk,partition).
    The "configfile" statement will display the PCLOS menu.lst and you can go from there.

    Make these changes ( in red ) and let us know what happens.

    timeout 10
    color cyan/blue white/blue
    foreground ffffff
    background 0639a1

    gfxmenu (hd0,0)/boot/grub/message

    title antiX at sda1, kernel 3.5.0-antix.2-486-smp
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-3.5.0-antix.2-486-smp root=/dev/sda1 nomce quiet nosplash nouveau.modeset=0 vga=791
    initrd /boot/initrd.img-3.5.0-antix.2-486-smp
    boot

    title PCLinuxOS
    root (hd0,2)
    configfile /boot/grub/menu.lst
