I wish I could know
what version of grub is
the one with drivemap --mem.
I think that with chainloading
PC-BSD will not give error
such as boot-drive is missing.
I saw that drivemap --mem$isofile
is even possible at last.
This is more or less
the try that I made:

       loopback hd1 (hd0,1)/boot-isos/PCBSD9.1-x86-DVD.iso
       drivemap -s (hd0) (hd1)
       chainload (hd0)+1

But it does not work
because "drivemap -s" doesn't support loopback.
So do you know-about "drivemap --mem"?

Help-grub mailing list


At about the start of March, this year, I posted messages on this list and on the PC-BSD list, asking about trying to get PC-BSD running with GRUB on a multi-boot system, as I had been unable to get PC-BSD 9.0 working with GRUB.

I got no response on this list.

With that, and, what I got from the PC-BSD list, I assumed that PC-BSD and GRUB are incompatible with each other.

I could be wrong in that deduction, but I have not found informnation otherwise.
