Thanks Felix,

Hurm.. Well, if anyone is interested, I have just made a couple of additional updates to the drivemap.path.8 code, and now with r2104 the "unaligned pointer" issue is gone, and it is working great on my systems. I can post the patch if you or anyone else is interested.

Hi all,
I was wondering what the current status of a grub2 port of the grub-0.97 "map" and "rootnoverify" commands is? I have found some work done to this end in the "drivemap.patch" work, but I find nothing more recent than drivemap.patch.8 dated around Aug 2008.

The current status of it are exactly what you found out.
I don't know if that'll ever change.

Could anyone give me any pointers/direction on what might be happening here? Could it be that the "norootverify"-functionality of grub-legasy is lacking here? Or, perhaps, that the "--force" option is not being honored ?

rootnoverify isn't needed anymore, because root is now just a variable
and not anymore a command which tried to verify it. So basically
rootnoverify is default now.
chainloader --force just skips the check for 0xaa55, normally it
shouldn't be needed with a valid windows bootsector.
