I don't know why I wait until I'm LITERALLY ready to throw things before I post but anyway...
I'm trying to dual-boot  Android-x86 sba2/  Android-x86 sba3
I installed Android-x86/ GParted without much proble but I want to be able to dual boot and I guess I just do not have what it takes to do it through the online posts using the Gparted terminal,

I have: all NFTS
 sba1 which is W7 System partition
sba2 W7 (does not boot (old boot loader gone) and I dont care) and active Androidx86 copy
sba3 contains another copy of android but I wouldnt know it because i cannot boot to it
sba4   GRUB (Dedicated)

I do the mkdir and mount and grub-install and reboot and it always wipes what I just crated but a copy of grub comes up offering me to boot to the one and only copy (finds sba2) of Android or debug.
Now that I have grub on dedicated I have no more menu.lst. I create one in gparted but its gone upon reboot.
I need to know wher the active grub folder is so I can access it.

UPDATE:
I just wiped the drive. Half by mistake and the other half not caring.
I have now partitioned off SDA1 (250M) For GRUB
Now installing Ubuntu on SDA2 (107G)ext
SDA4 Swap (105G)
Leaving SDA3 (107G) for my 2 Android-x86 installationS
All EXT3

I HOPE THIS WORKS....

I previously wrote an article addressing the use of UBCD4WIN and SARDU. All are great, but I have always been an advocate of SARDU. Recently it was suggested that I go back and take a look at Easy2Boot in comparison.
This video is in connection to the article "The case of a missing mobile phone (https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/28474/The-Case-of-a-Missing-Mobile-Phone.html)". It will help one to understand clearly the steps to track a lost android phone.
