Synopsis

device drive file

Specify a file to be used as a BIOS drive. This command is useful for creating a disk image and/or for fixing the drives when GRUB fails to determine them correctly. The device command is available only from within the grub shell, not from the native command line. For example:

grub> device (fd0) /floppy-image
grub> device (hd0) /dev/sd0
