  1. Read only: Incompatibility between using qemu and grub

    If you want to put a Linux system image as a file onto a secondary vfat
    disk partition on a modern laptop or desktop computer, and use "dual-
    boot" qemu.exe and grub4dos or loadln to boot this system image, you
    have a slight incompatibility, or you need two initrd images, one for a
    loop system and the other for a qemu.exe system where the "loop" is
    implied.

    The same image can work for both. You just have to get it mounted one way
    or the other. It all depends on how you build it and initialize it.
