dCore Boot and Installation from GRUB2

A brief dCore installation and boot example from an existing Linux install using GRUB2. No need to burn a CD/DVD or get a USB stick. Simply download the base file system and kernel into the boot directory of your choice. A small seperate boot partition may be preferred (<100mb) but not necessary. Boot the existing Linux install where GRUB2 resides and modify the boot configuration.

This example boots dCore-jessie (vmlinuz-jessie, dCore-jessie.gz) from the root directory of hd1,1 (sdb1) and the tce (extension) directory is located in sdb4:

        menuentry "dCore" {
            set root=(hd1,1)
            linux /dCore/boot/vmlinuz-jessie nozswap showapps tce=sdb4 desktop=fluxbox
            initrd /dCore/boot/dCore-jessie.gz
        }
