Hello,

I have installed Debian Linux on an SD-Card of a Windows 8 Laptop.
With the Bios it is possible to boot from USB and SD-Cards (/dev/sdc)
On the SD-Card I have created also an extra boot partition of 1 GB.
I would like to install the grub2 bootloader onto this SD-Card without affecting the bootrecord on /dev/sda of the Laptop.

While using Rescatux Restore Grub option make sure that:

  • You choose the SD hard disk as the target hard disk where to install Grub
  • Your SD hard disk is set as the first one in the hard disk boot order dialog

That would make sure that Grub2 is installed in the SD hard disk.
