I installed a current (16.04) Ubuntu-Mate to
/dev/sda5 (ext2) as /boot /dev/mapper/sda6_crypt (crypted) /dev/mapper/sda6_crypt as /
...reboot after setup, Ubuntu working nicely. Then equally I installed a elemantary OS to
/dev/sda1 (ext2) as /boot /dev/sda1 (ext4) as /
...reboot after setup, Elementary OS working nicely. (However no choice to choose between Linuxes while booting.)
No what? How do I chain those bootloaders? (in a simple way if possible)
- nothing fancy, I do want to keep the two Linux distributions separate (no shared ´/home´ or anything)
- Elementary is more for guests, Ubuntu more for work. ➝ Would be nice to have a timeout that loads Elementary OS automatically after x seconds, if no other choice made...
(Apologies for such a beginners question. Sure, there's plenty of advice, but much seems outdated, others appear to be endless shell journeys, many focus on (tougher) dual-boot issues windows+linux, etc...)
I hope I didn't get things wrong, that
/boot for a linux and the very first partition of the entire drive...
