Super Grub2 Disk

    Super Grub2 Disk 2.02s10 released

    Super Grub2 Disk 2.02s10 stable is here.

    Super GRUB2 Disk is a live cd that helps you to boot into most any Operating System (OS) even if you cannot boot into it by normal means.

    A new stable release

    The former Super Grub2 Disk stable release was 2.02s9 version and released on May 2017 (1 year and 6 months ago) . New features or changes since previous stable version are:

    • ‘Enable all native disk drivers’ option was improved. It no longer crashes.
    • Now devices are cached and Super Grub2 Disk is faster
    • Modify sg2d_directory and sg2d_dev_name variables so that SG2D is more portable
    • Standalone images are no longer broken and show main menu
    • Other minor improvements

    Tour

    Here there is a little video tour in order to discover most of Super Grub2 Disk options. The rest of the options you will have to discover them by yourself.

    Features

    Most of the features here will let you boot into your Operating Systems. The rest of the options will improve the Super Grub2 Disk operating systems autodetecting (enable RAID, LVM, etc.) or will deal with minor aspects of the user interface (Colours, language, etc.).

    About other downloads. As this is the first time I develop Super Grub2 Disk out of source code (well, probably not the first time, but the first time in ages) I have not been able to build these other downloads: coreboot, i386-efi, i386-pc, ieee1275, x86_64-efi, standalone coreboot, standalone i386-efi, standalone ieee1275. bfree has helped on this matter and with his help we might have those builds in next releases. If you want such builds drop a mail in the mailing list so that we aware of that need.

      2 Disk releases.

    Changes since 2.02s4 version:

    • Stop trying to chainload devices under UEFI and improve the help people get in the case of a platform mismatch
    • (Devel) Properly support source based built grub-mkfont binary.
    • New options were added to chainload directly either /ntldr or /bootmgr thanks to ntldr command. They only work in BIOS mode.

    Changes since 2.02s3 version:

    • Many files were rewritten so that they only loop between devices that actually need to be searched into.
      This enhacement will make Super Grub2 Disk faster.
    • Remove Super Grub2 Disk own devices from search by default. Added an option to be able to enable/disable the Super Grub2 Disk own devices search.

    2.02s2 beta 1 changelog:

    • Updated grub 2.02 build to commit: 8e5bc2f4d3767485e729ed96ea943570d1cb1e45
    • Updated documentation for building Super Grub2 Disk
    • Improvement on upstream grub (d29259b134257458a98c1ddc05d2a36c677ded37 – test: do not stop after first file test or closing bracket) will probably make Super Grub2 Disk run faster.
    • Added new grub build scripts so that Super Grub2 Disk uses its own built versions of grub and not the default system / distro / chroot one.
    • Ensure that Mac OS X entries are detected ok thanks to Users dir. This is because Grub2 needs to emulate Mac OS X kernel so that it’s detected as a proper boot device on Apple computers.
    • Thanks to upstream grub improvement now Super Grub2 Disk supports booting in EFI mode when booted from a USB device / hard disk. Actually SG2D was announced previously to boot from EFI from a USB device while it only booted from a cdrom.

    2.02s1 beta 1 changelog:

    • Added new option: “Enable all native disk drivers” so that you can try to load: SATA, PATA and USB hard disks (and their partitions) as native disk drives. This is experimental.
    • Removed no longer needed options: “Enable USB” and “Enable PATA”.
    • “Search floppy” and “Search cdrom” options were moved into “Extra GRUB2 functionality menu”. At the same time “Extra Search functionality” menu was removed.
    • Added new straight-forward option: “Enable GRUB2’s RAID and LVM support”.
    • “List devices/partitions” was renamed to “Print devices/partitions”.
    • “Everything” option was renamed to “Detect and show boot methods”.
    • “Everything +” option was removed to avoid confusions.
    • Other minor improvements in the source code.
    • Updated translation files. Now most translations are pending.
    • Updated INSTALL instructions.

    Finally you can check all the detailed changes at our GIT commits.

    If you want to translate into your language please check TRANSLATION file at source code to learn how to translate into your language.

    Thank you – Hall of fame

    I want to thank in alphabetical order:

    • The upstream Grub crew. I’m subscribed to both help-grub and grub-devel and I admire the work you do there.
    • Necrosporus for his insistence on making Super Grub2 Disk smaller.

    The person who writes this article is adrian15 .

    And I cannot forget about thanking bTactic, the enterprise where I work at and that hosts our site.

    Some thoughts about Super Grub2 Disk development

    Super Grub2 Disk development ideas

    I think we won’t improve Super Grub2 Disk too much. We will try to stick to official Grub2 stable releases. Unless a new feature that it’s not included in official Grub2 stable release is needed in order to give additional useful functionalities to Super Grub2 Disk.

    I have added some scripts to Super Grub2 Disk build so that writing these pieces of news is more automatic and less prone to errors. Check them out in git repo as you will not find them in 2.02s8 source code.

    Old idea: I don’t know when but I plan to readapt some scripts from os-prober. That will let us detect more operating systems. Not sure when though. I mean, it’s not something that worries me because it does not affect too many final users. But, well, it’s something new that I hadn’t thought about.

    Again, please send us feedback on what you think it’s missing on Super Grub2 Disk.

    Rescatux development

    I want to focus on Rescatux development on the next months so that we have an stable release before the end of 2017. Now I need to finish adding UEFI features (most finished), fix the scripts that generate Rescatux source code (difficult) and write much documentation.

    Rescatux 0.51 beta 3 released

    Rescatux 0.51 beta 3 has been released.

    Update UEFI order in action
    Update UEFI order in action

    Downloads:

  • Torrent (Open the link the in browser and click on Download Torrent File Now)
  • Rescatux 0.51b3 size is about 640 Megabytes.

    Some thoughts:

    • Boot Repair functionality has been removed from Rescatux. Many people, somehow, were using Boot Repair (by default) inside Rescatux while we don’t support it.
      If you feel Rescapp does not cover all the Boot Repair functionality you can fill a bug for a RFE (Request for Enhacement).
    • Rescapp and chntpw are now installed from a Repo. It should be virtually identical to 0.41b1 release. If something doesn’t work as well as before please report a bug so that we can fix it.
    • This is the last build based on Debian 8 (Jessie).

    Important notice:

    • If you want to use the UEFI options make sure you use DD or another equivalent tool (Rufus in ‘Direct image’ mode, usb imagewriter, etc.) to put Rescatux in your USB
    • If you want to use UEFI options make sure you boot your Rescatux device in UEFI mode
    • If you want to use Rescatux make sure you temporarly disable Secure Boot. Rescatux does not support booting in Secure Boot mode but it should be able to fix most of the UEFI Secure Boot problems if booted in Non Secure Boot mode.

    More things I want to do before the stable release are:

    Let’s hope it happens sooner than later.

    Help Rescatux project:

    I think we can expect four months maximum till the new stable Rescatux is ready. Helping on these tasks is appreciated:

    • Making a youtube video for the new options.
    • Make sure documentation for the new options is right.
    • Make snapshots for new options documentation so that they don’t lack images.
