Well, you can actually achieve these function with some external
tools. Using memdisk, you can emulate a floppy/harddisk image, and
with loadbin, you can chainload ntldr/bootmgr/grldr/stage2, etc.

Hi Bean,

Have you tried booting a dos floppy image with memdisk lately?

I just tried memdisk-3.52 on two different machines using both legacy
and grub2, and nothing worked.  After printing several lines of info
and some hex numbers it prints this:

Loading boot sector...booting...

and then the machine hangs forever, needing a hard reset to reboot.
My test image was made from a fresh and tested floppy which I made
using WinXP.

Can anyone duplicate this?  Or not?
