how to install a boot menu with Windows & Linux
« on: August 18, 2022, 12:21:39 AM »
Hey guys.
 I installed Tiny Core Plus v13.1 on an ext4 partition.
 During the installation I tagged to add a boot loader.
 The boot loader created previously with EasyBCD from Windows remains set, with the Linux & Windows entries: selecting Linux only opens a prompt with grub>, Windows instead starts normally.

 Could you post me a simple guide for new ones, with all the necessary steps to operate a boot menu for Windows & Tymi Core Plus already installed on a partition in Ext4?
 If simpler, modify EasyBCD appropriately (I don't know how to do it) from Windows, that's fine too.

thank you

What did you use to install tinycore?

Since selecting linux brings you to a grub prompt you must have a grub config file somewhere - could you copy and paste its contents here?

The file is called grub.cfg

Its location is going to depend on when it was installed and whether your machine uses a legacy bios or uefi boot - basically you are going to have to search for it.
