Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I am trying to set up a chainload from my Arch's syslinux bootloader - but I can't find chain.c32 under /boot/grub in my Ubuntu installation.

All I can find is chain.mod, so I thought I'd try using that in case it was the same file with a new extension, but the bootloader complained about it being the wrong file type. All of the guides I have found have told me I need to copy the .c32 into my syslinux folder...

Help please?

Switching which HDD is plugged in each time I want to boot a different system is soooo 2000s...
(and thoroughly inconvenient)

"P.S. how on earth am I supposed to tag this properly if I can't create new tags due to my Reputation?" > Well this avoids ppl from creating tags like "wow gold" "buy wow gold" "peanuts" "watermelons" "jelly", etc, you get the picture. Its always easier to create a new tag then to be sorting out all tags that a user might think its necessary to add. It wont affect your question being answered. –  Bruno Pereira Oct 24 '11 at 6:14
I agree, the requested tags might be too narrow to be useful in the long run. –  Christopher Kyle Horton Oct 24 '11 at 6:20
Okay thanks, I see =/ –  Farran Oct 24 '11 at 11:44
