Setting up GRUB
If you haven't installed GRUB yet (by mistake or on purpose), it's not too late. As you will see, it's very simple to install GRUB separately.
To be able to install GRUB
It is not necessary to have NuTyX installed; you can install GRUB to any other distribution.
Restart the PC and boot the ISO
Once you arrive at the Main menu, choose "Boot Configure the boot of the PC (optional)" like this:
Select the partition
Choose the partition where the GRUB application will be installed. Please note that the destination partition does not have to be on the disk you booted from. A menu appears giving you the chance to choose another disk.
Grub is installed
It's now time to edit the grub.cfg file.
Be aware of the syntax for addressing disks and partitions. It's a bit special.
With grub 2.00, the first hard drive is called 0 and the first partition is 1. This means that the following example:
defines the fifth partition on the first hard drive.
In the following example, we can see 4 entries: three of them are for NuTyX. The first entry will start the NuTyX distribution located on the /dev/sda2 partition.
The second entry will start the NuTyX distribution located on the /dev/sda2 partition with runyx as init system.
The third entry will start the NuTyX distribution located on the /dev/sda2 partition with systemd as init system.
The last entry will start Windows 10 located on /dev/sda3
# Begin grub.cfg # By default boot the first menu entry. set default 0 # Allow 5 seconds before booting the default. set timeout 5
