Well, it would be useful to check that search was successful and if not,

I like this. I will use this method.

Well, this syntax is causing me problems.

First, prior to getting the menu printed on the screen, I get a few lines
about something not found (I'm writing from yesterday memories), and finally,
the message "Could not find this OS instance", a delay, then it prints the

On some of the menu entries that I know should fail (I intentionally wrote
the wrong uuid, for testing), I get the message, then the wait, and then a
prompt to press any key. Thus the delay is not needed, I think.

I also notice that it searches the floppy drive (yes, I do have a floppy
drive in this machine), despite having "--no-floppy". This causes long delays.

--no-floppy skips devices with name fd0, fd1, etc. What devices are
listed in GRUB CLI (command ls)

I just noticed an error on the "custom.cfg" file, as I was going to post the

menuentry '2:1 - Main (uuid)' {
insmod part_msdos
insmod ext2
set root='hd2,msdos2'
if search search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root
5135ab82-1374-4c30-b9d0-4b56d6d6d6c6 ; then

Why second "search"? Syntax is compatible with UNIX shell, "if" is
followed by command; second "search" here is interpreted by command
"search" and results in error.
