New: added ability to boot foreign bootloaders, like lilo/grub/grub2 from guid partitions.
hm, i found gpt patch for 0.97 grub
grub from ubuntu 7.10 confirmed to have gpt/guid support.
It can be isntalled to guid partition (stage1 to partition too)
e.g. with two command in grub shell
root (hd2,1) - just example of guid msdos(fat16) partition
then it will be displayed with pc_efi as foreign boot and entering it will load grub
So multiboot OSX/linux becomes real on guid/gpt !
P.S. to get foreign boot working u have to erase guid partition with msdos filesystem…
…then do whatever u want with content of partition, e.g. u can make reiserfs filesystem there
then install grub to it, and linux..
grub files from ubuntu7.10 - http://tinyurl.com/28ceje ,
