  1. Background info: new install of Win7 and Funtoo on a laptop (HP Elitebook 8470p, core i7-3720, 16GB RAM, 500GB SSD). Partitioned as follows. The partition scheme is classic BIOS/MBR, not UEFI. /dev/sda1 * 2048 206847 204800 100M 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sda2 206848 747522047 747315200 356.4G 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sda3 747522048 957237247 209715200 100G 83 Linux /dev/sda4 957237248 1000215215 42977968 20.5G 82 Linux swap / Solaris Win7 installed first, Funtoo second in the unpartitioned space that was divided into sda3 and sda4. No separate boot and home partitions. Used sysrescd 4.9.0 for the install. No problems until setting grub for dual boot. I do have os-prober installed. The same issue occurs with both grub-legacy and grub2. Installed grub on /dev/sda. I want to dual boot Funtoo and Win7 with Funtoo being the default, and a timeout of 10s. 1. Using either 'ego boot update' or just boot-update, a /boot/grub/grub.cfg is installed that allows me to boot Funtoo only, no entry for Windows. os-prober when run separately does find the Windows installation but apparently that doesn't get funneled into boot-update. Adding an entry for Windows in /etc/grub.d/40_custom with chainloading also gets ignored. With that I can boot Funtoo, but not WIndows 2. Using grub or grub2's 'grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg' results in a config that has entries for Funtoo and Win7 but only Windows can be booted from it. Attempting to boot Funtoo results in a kernel panic because sda3 cannot be mounted as root partition. I'm pasting below the two grub.cfg files; notice that the root partitions are defined differently in the files. I don't want to edit grub.cfg manually if I can help it. Any ideas appreciated. 1. grub.cfg generated by boot-update (boots Funtoo correctly but no entry for Windows) set timeout=10 if [ -s $prefix/grubenv ]; then load_env fi function savedefault { if [ -z "{boot_once}" ]; then saved_entry="${chosen}" save_env saved_entry fi } insmod part_msdos insmod ext2 set root=(hostdisk//dev/sda,msdos3) search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 38c0a8f9-0e12-462c-92f6-650e5748eba3 if loadfont /boot/grub/fonts/unicode.pf2; then set gfxmode=text insmod all_video terminal_output gfxterm fi set menu_color_normal=cyan/blue set menu_color_highlight=blue/cyan menuentry "Funtoo Linux genkernel - kernel-debian-sources-lts-x86_64-4.9.161_p1" { insmod part_msdos insmod ext2 set root=(hostdisk//dev/sda,msdos3) search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 38c0a8f9-0e12-462c-92f6-650e5748eba3 linux /boot/kernel-debian-sources-lts-x86_64-4.9.161_p1 real_root=/dev/sda3 rootfstype=ext4 rand_id=L0AGZ8KL initrd /boot/early_ucode.cpio /boot/initramfs-debian-sources-lts-x86_64-4.9.161_p1 set gfxpayload=keep } menuentry "Funtoo Linux genkernel - kernel-debian-sources-lts-x86_64-4.9.130-2" { insmod part_msdos insmod ext2 set root=(hostdisk//dev/sda,msdos3) search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 38c0a8f9-0e12-462c-92f6-650e5748eba3 linux /boot/kernel-debian-sources-lts-x86_64-4.9.130-2 real_root=/dev/sda3 rootfstype=ext4 rand_id=AFRCNQ3V initrd /boot/early_ucode.cpio /boot/initramfs-debian-sources-lts-x86_64-4.9.130-2 set gfxpayload=keep } if [ !
