Thanks for the reply Martin, is there any other way to achieve this? I do not need to python script for it, I need to run an executable which reads the virtual hard-disk. So I think I'll need to run this executable and add an entry in grub.conf before the boot menu shows up.

I do not think you can run Python scripts from GRUB. A Python interpreter is a very large program requiring a complete operating system. It would be very complex to run such scripts from GRUB...

Hey folks,

I use a script from VMWare to read a virtual hard-disk and then mount it to a drive in Linux. How can I boot from this mounted drive using grub (I need to mount the drive before booting to any OS). I could have all the mounting stuff written in a python/bash script. However, is there a way to run that script from GRUB or a GRUB module?
