Default Here a solution of dualboot: OS-X and chrunchbang with grub2 - 05-16-2010, 10:29 PM

Here a solution how to boot OS-X and 'linux' (in my case !#chrunchbang) with grub2 in the

Grub has changed to grub2 in most linux distributions

I read that installing grub in a partition is not advisable. So I installed first
1) OS-X
2) chrunchbang

with grub2 in the MBR.

Boot in linux and open a terminal (as root)



The file should have the following lines:

exec tail -n +3 $0

# entry to boot OS-X

menuentry 'OS-X' {
insmod hfsplus
set root=(hd0,2) #change according your partitition table
multiboot /boot

save and run as root



Hope this helps
