    Hi Mates!

    I will describe a way to install Burg bootloader, instead of the good'old Grub.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Things you will need:

    Steps:
    Format the USB Stick in Windows, with default settings and fat32.
    Open up uNetbootin and choose the ubuntu iso image, then your usb sticks drive letter. Make the LiveUSB.
    Reboot and choose your LiveUSB, "Try Ubuntu without install".
    (in Ubuntu you will not have touchscreen working, but you can navigate with the arrow/tab keys)
    On the desktop press Alt+F1 and go to Settings/Network, set up a wireless connection.
    From the Accessories menu open the Terminal and issue the following commands:
    Code:
    sudo su
    mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
    cd /mnt
    mkdir bin cdrom dev dev/pts etc home lib media proc rofs sbin sys usr tmp var
    mount --bind /bin ./bin
    mount --bind /cdrom ./cdrom
    mount --bind /dev ./dev
    mount --bind /dev/pts ./dev/pts
    mount --bind /etc ./etc
    mount --bind /home ./home
    mount --bind /lib ./lib
    mount --bind /media ./media
    mount --bind /proc ./proc
    mount --bind /rofs ./rofs
    mount --bind /sbin ./sbin
    mount --bind /sys ./sys
    mount --bind /usr ./usr
    mount --bind /tmp ./tmp
    mount --bind /var ./var
    chroot /mnt/ /bin/bash
    add-apt-repository ppa:bean123ch/burg
    apt-get update && apt-get install burg
    
    While the Burg install process it will ask you about kernel commands, for that just hit enter twice
    and then it ask you about where to install Burg, there you have to choose /dev/sda.
    Your Windows installation is recognized automatically, but for the Android you have to add few lines to 40_custom file.
    Code:
    nano /etc/burg.d/40_custom
    If you not familiar with the boot args of your Android x86 installation, here is a little example:
    Code:
    menuentry "Android-4.0-RC1" { 
    set root='(hd0,1)' 
    echo 'Loading Android ICS...'
    linux /android-4.0-RC1/kernel quiet root=/dev/ram0 androidboot.hardware=tegav2 acpi_sleep=s3_bios,s3_mode SRC=/android-4.0-RC1
    echo 'Loading initial ramdisk...'
    initrd /android-4.0-RC1/initrd.img
    There is a bunch of themes already installed with Burg, but in case you want to add something of your choice then it's time to do it!
    If you've finished make config and update burg:
    Code:
    burg-mkconfig && update-burg
    Before rebooting try your bootloader with the cmd:
    Code:
    burg-emu
    Thats all, you should have a brand new and shiny look bootloader :)

    Hope it was useful!

    Greg

    Hello,

    How I've to edit the Android Boot Settings


    menuentry "Android-4.0-RC1" { set root='(hd0,1)' echo 'Loading Android ICS...' linux /android-4.0-RC1/kernel quiet root=/dev/ram0 androidboot.hardware=tegav2 acpi_sleep=s3_bios,s3_mode SRC=/android-4.0-RC1 echo 'Loading initial ramdisk...' initrd /android-4.0-RC1/initrd.img


    If I had Adroid installed on the micro SD card in my Viewpad 10? I can boot it with F11 and then select, but this is not nice.

    I would guess that the microSD card would be seen as (hd1,1). You would need to manually edit the bootloader info, according to the first post.

    Change this:


    set root='(hd0,1)'

    To this:

    set root='(hd1,1)'
