Thunderbird 220.127.116.11 (X11/20080508)
I'm using grub-1.96. Today I tried to boot grub with grub itself
using the multiboot mechanism. For that I made this entry in
where kernel.exec is the grub-2 binary (including the multiboot header)
which can be found in the grub-2 source directory after building grub.
Now when I try to boot this, I get the following error message:
error: segment doesn't fit in memory reserved for the OS (0x8200 < 0x100000)
In kern/i386/pc/startup.S the multiboot header is defined, along with this
* Support for booting GRUB from a Multiboot boot loader (e.g. GRUB itself).
* This uses the a.out kludge to load raw binary to the area starting at 1MB,
* and relocates itself after loaded.
which made me think that it should be possible to boot grub with grub.
Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks in advance,
- Grub-2 Multiboot,
