Hi all I'm new here and I want to ask where i can find vmlinuz without "/boot" directory... So system normally boots (Chrome OS) All working perefectly from pendrive But when I want dual boot I need Grub4Dos and There's problem I don't know where is the vmlinuz file to put it in "menu.lst"

P.S sorry For bad English

Closed: I find a way: I Find /syslinux/vmlinuz.A File in /dev/sdb12 i copied all /dev/sdb12 contents to newly created /boot directory on ROOT-A and changed menu.lst kernel file to: /boot/syslinux/vmlinuz.A

  • Where did you get your ChromeOS build? – Daniel B Aug 12 '14 at 7:32

Historically, the kernel was stored in the root directory /. The /boot directory appeared only when a few distributions started to propose several kernels to boot on and several other facilities (such as memtest like applications).

So, if you miss a /boot directory, the kernel (vmlinuz in your case) is more likely to be at /.

  • I can only see file "postinst" is it kernel file? – LinuxMan Aug 12 '14 at 8:55
  • Probably not, usually postinst is the log of the installation of the system. I looked a bit around, have something like /sys-kernel/chromeos-kernel in your file-system ? – perror Aug 12 '14 at 9:05
  • Nope. I don't Have /sys-kernel directory P.S I searched "/" Filesystem and i don't find vmlinuz file – LinuxMan Aug 12 '14 at 9:10

    Ok i finally did it I found /syslinux/vmlinuz.A File in boot partition (/dev/sdb12) i copied all contents to newly created /boot directory on ROOT-A and changed menu.lst kernel file to: /boot/syslinux/vmlinuz.A anyway Thx for help :) – LinuxMan Aug 12 '14 at 13:16
  • Sorry to not have been more helpful. :-/ I don't know ChromeOS distribution at all. You should consider filling up an answer to your own question. It may be useful for others ! – perror Aug 12 '14 at 13:32

You might try changing directly to that address. eg cd /boot/vmlinuz I know some filing systems don't allow you to stop in a given directory (eg Netware).
