GRUB4DOS is a small boot manager for OS-X86. It supports booting off the real hard disks for DOS, from floppy disks, CDs, IDE devices (that are really fast), and even from network-attached devices. GRUB4DOS also allows you to boot multiple operating systems off different partitioned disk. The standard operation is to choose what OS you want to boot by means of a keystroke from the keyboard; that's it. You can remove, modify or add boot options easily by editing the BOOT.INI file. GRUB4DOS can also be integrated with the GNU DOS applications, allowing them to boot from disks containing an old DOS version, and allow them to boot the OS of their choice (compatible with Windows NT). You can also use it to load the GRUB bootloader on a floppy disk. When you boot off a floppy disk, GRUB4DOS will then offer you the choice to load GRUB from a partition or from a floppy. GRUB4DOS contains a lot of new features such as: Advanced BIOS disk emulation with GRUB4DOS Integrated Drivers BIOS disk emulation for ATAPI, SCSI and ATA devices ATAPI disk emulation with TLK (VFS Transparent Low-level Kernel) support DOS partition virtualization and disk labeling DOS-partitioned disks that can be easily loaded directly from GRUB4DOS Floppy disk image loading Fully Unicode compatible (A16E) Intel, Alpha and SPARC/Linux architecture support Graphical window system (not implemented yet) Open a file editor, or copy a file without exiting (useful when using'safe-mode' with GRUB4DOS) Overlay swap disks (when the device file used for the overlay disk is extended) Real-time frequency scaling for local devices All GRUB2 features, but it is advanced Automatic detection of Linux kernels and load with CRC16 integrity check DOS memory area partitioning Ubiquitous FAT/FAT32 file system support Dynamic kernel modules loading (module files can be elf or kernel module files). Booting off a network or a file Boot multiple operating systems off a single disk. So, if you're looking for a simple and reliable bootloader for DOS machines, you should definitely give GRUB4DOS a try. It's known for its ease of use, reliability and speed, and offers countless options for possible scenarios. a5204a7ec7

GRUB4DOS is an excellent boot loader for almost any PC that runs DOS. It supports hundreds of different functions, and is often overlooked by new users. GRUB4DOS includes a built-in command shell, full command line editing facilities, disk image support, Windows boot manager and much more. GRUB4DOS Compression Algorithm: Because GRUB4DOS is distributed via a compressed file, it is somewhat difficult to gain access to the boot manager's features. Luckily, the software includes some tools that help overcome this problem. Read on for a quick explanation of GRUB4DOS compression in more detail. The boot loader for a PC is usually stored on a floppy disk for easy transfer between PCs. GRUB4DOS includes an MD5 file containing several files, including the booter's executable. The idea is that, as much as is possible, you do not want to have to decompress a boot loader on a floppy disk each time you want to transfer it to another machine. A better idea would be to compress a boot loader. By using an MD5 algorithm, you can compress the four files into a single file, making your transmission and recovery of a PC's boot manager much easier. On top of that, MD5 is an incredibly secure compression algorithm. For a boot loader to be completely secure, it must be compressed with an MD5 hashing algorithm. This makes it virtually impossible for anyone who receives a boot loader via email or through any other unsecure means, to extract the boot loader's contents and modify them for malicious purposes. GRUB4DOS Installation Instructions: GRUB4DOS is a free utility and is distributed as the GRUB4DOS executable plus the MD5 files that have been described above. In order to install the program on your PC, double-click on the file to start a quick download from our site. It is important to note that the actual boot loader code of GRUB4DOS resides in the MD5 files, which has an executable text format. When you download this package, GRUB4DOS should automatically run. After the installation is completed, a menu will pop up to inform you of the options available. The most important ones are "Advanced", "DOS" and "MBR" for booting directly from DOS, "WINDOWS" and "MBR" if you plan on booting GRUB4DOS from the Windows boot loader (namely, from the BOOT.INI file) or "WIN.IN
