Hi Peter,


I can't tell anything about the errors, but have you tried:
  chainloader (hd0,msdos5)+1

Are you sure that there is a bootloader in the first byte(?) of the fifth
As far as I know chainload does only load something into memory and tries to
execute it. 

What OS (or "code") do you want to run from this partition?

The machine has only 128 MiB and the Debian installer declines to work. 
I can add memory and install Deb Wheezy ... although in principle Grub
should be able to function without Linux.

BootManager a preferred alternative.
Installation of Grub was convenient when the hdd was being partitioned on
the Debian system; not essential.

This machine also doesn't shutdown cleanly and I wonder whether it has an
anomalous behaviour of BIOS or hardware.  Beyond my knowledge really.

Thanks for the interest,              ... Peter E.
