Re: More Direct Windows Booting?

The other day I chainloaded /bootmgr with Grub4DOS, which I loaded from Grub 
2.00~beta6 (linux /grub.exe, no initrd).

That works. But Grub4DOS is GPT-unaware. Haven't tried burg4dos yet (is 
GPT-aware), which is intended to be installed from Windows. I'm wondering if I 
can open the burg4DOS installer as an archive in Linux and pop out a binary I 
can load with Grub2 to get booted into Burg4DOS.

But that grub4dos trick is definitely handy if you want the "quick fix" I 
mentioned earlier.

Haven't tried booting DOS with grub4dos yet, that would be interesting.
