Without entering in whether the actual "concept" is correct (last time I checked you hade to load pxeboot.n12 :whistle: ), the error 1 simply means that you have not a space between the --raw switch and the target file path and the grub4dos parser reads "--raw(pd)/bootmgr" as a "single item" (since it is a single item withut the space).


Shouldn't it be possible to load bootmgr directly? isolinux and syslinux can both do it. Is the environment of pxe not able to load bootmgr directly? I can get it to load, but it is unable to find the BCD.

Again, which EXACT version of grub4dos is it?


Grub.exe 0.4.4 / grldr 0.97

What device (NAS/whatever) is it?


We are currently using a QNAP TS-EC1279U-RP, which runs a version of debian, i think.

Grub.exe 0.4.4 / grldr 0.97

That is:
  • NOT a version of grub4dos (grub4dos version after 0.4.3 have a date 0.4.4 2009-10-16 being the ONLY recommended version of the 0.4.4 series
  • it is SEVERELY outdated

Get LATEST "Featured" from here (NOT any among the TestOnly version):
http://code.google.c.../downloads/list

Then follow this gude:
http://diddy.boot-land.net/pxe/

If you want to better understand how grub4dos works, besides the readme.txt, do check the guide:
http://diddy.boot-la...os/Grub4dos.htm

Though many new features were added to grub4dos the "base" is still valid.
Check also on reboot.pro, example:

Since the Qnap has the ability to run a webserver this might be a good idea.
