The situation is the following:

There are two Windows XP and Ubuntu 10.10, each system is on a separate partition.

First install WinXP, they have their own NTLDR. After installing Ubutnu in Grub2 menu items become available download the Ubuntu and the Windows boot loader. When you click on the second point, NTLDR appears where you can select a specific WinXP.

Question:

Is it possible in Grub2 to make him immediately jump in the right system, not getting the chain to NTLDR?

Solution found

Following the advice Inlarion and xSus, managed to cope with the problem. And the solution lies in creation of NTLDR for each partition with Windows. After making these changes and updating Grub, he picked up both systems. Minor customization boot.ini in the appropriate sections and manipulated in the script 40_custom allowed to achieve the desired result.


Thank you very much for the help!

Determine what Windows you have ntldr (look in the root partition) and copy it to the second section, with the second Windows, namely the files:
C:\tldr
C:\\boot.ini
C:\TDETECT.COM
C:\\Bootfont.bin
\r
Edit the file boot.ini by deleting the second Windows of the first file and the first from the second, set timeout 0
\r
Configure grub as you said above, in the file menu.lst appending a second wind, only to have another section, probably the first time the not a ride and have to play with makeactive in the list settings, but it depends on the registry settings of the second Windows. On idea all should earn at once.

There is an option for each Windows needs its own ntldr, then of coarse you can configure specific load ntldr. (you can look, you can tell just think the basic answer)
And each of the configure ntldr to boot its operating system without showing the user menu.
from ntldr not get rid of because rude is not able to load Windows, but to do so would be ntldr was not shown to the user. it'll look just like that rude ship Windows.

And the grub is key? If not, then you can also do the opposite — to use ntloader as your boot Manager of the OS.

No
Remove excess WinXP all. Will be immediately loaded after a rough wind.

Edit menu.lst and/or use a GUI utility StartUp Manager:
\r
sudo apt-get install startupmanager
