Manual Boot

Post by geffers »

Folks,

Installed GhostBSD to an external drive, bit nervous of harming my laptop Ubuntu system but installation successful but unable to boot.

Think from memory I went for the UEFI option so I still have GRUB on my main system.

If from EUFI BIOS I select the external drive it goes to GRUB menu on my internal drive with my other OSs visible (Ubuntu, Fedora and Win10) but no GhostBSD

If I drop into the GRUB command line GhostBSD is all there under hd1,msdos1 and if I list the root all the folders appear there.

Obviously the manual boot commands are different to Linux, can someone give me an idea how to manually boot GhostBSD?

Tried the chainload option, didn't work.

Further to my last I have mounted the GhostBDS system in my Ubuntu laptop - within the /boot directory there is no reference to UEFI
