Super Grub2 Disk

The primary purpose of Super GRUB2 Disk is to help you boot into an OS whose bootloader is broken. Documentation for Super GRUB2 Disk can be found at

I had an old system with Intel YM430TX motherboard lying around which would not boot from its hard disk. So I decided to patch Super GRUB2 Disk for three things:

  1. To timeout and boot the "Detect any Operating System" option
  2. To timeout and boot the first detected OS
  3. To insert the appropriate modules while enabling PATA

Here is the super_grub2_disk_1.99_beta_1_intel_ym430tx.patch. After applying the patch to super_grub2_disk_1.99_beta_1_source_code, I built the Super GRUB2 Disk iso, burnt it to a CD-ROM, inserted in the CD drive, and it then automatically booted Linux from my hard disk.
