When I boot from my Rescuatux 0.30.2 CD and choose the super grub disk option and then press c for the command line

then I can enter

search --file /LID
set root=hd2
chainloader +1

NOTE it may well be another disk label not hd2

From the search --file =/LID command Is it possible to get the characters up to but not including the comma and assign this into the set root= command.

what is the best way to create a bootable CD that will perform the required chainbooting automatically

Thank you

Just take Super Grub2 Disk source code, edit its menus/grub.cfg so that it fits your needs.

Probably you might want to add a menu where you can boot your entry or load SG2D itself.

Then build SG2D.

If possible please use grub-pc debian package version: 2.00-22.
