Can I install the BURG bootloader on my UEFI laptop running Linux Mint 14?

Wouter Ruelens December 15, 2012

I have installed Linux Mint 14 ‘Nadia’ on my laptop with UEFI via Grub2. It is however difficult to change the boot options in Grub2 so I would like to replace it with BURG. Is this possible?

    How to replace GRUB with BURG without overwriting MBR?

    If i were you I'd prefer Grub 2 over Burg anyway I,m not sure if it's a good decision you can try sudo burg-install /dev/sda
    I've been used it in Linux mint maya not sure if it will work in Mint 14
    Hope it will work for you
    Best Regards,

        Because Grub 2 has more support than burg, In my opinion Grub 2 is more customizable than burg,
        Assuming you have only one OS installed on your Laptop the process is simple
        Open Terminal and run following commands :-
        (1)sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/burg sudo apt-get update
        (2)sudo apt-get install burg burg-themes
        (3)sudo burg-install "(hd0)"
        (4)sudo update-burg
        (5)sudo burg-emu

        If it doesn't work for you, kindly feed back with the error in case you get any

          I think I'm going to stay with Grub2 as I already messed up my boot config once (using easyBCD however).
