Syslinux boot local harddisk

Nothing too crazy about this one. I was working on a USB boot disk that boots a syslinux menu and I wanted/needed a menu item that would attempt to boot from the local hard disk.

This is what I came up with.

LABEL bootlocal
MENU LABLE Boot local hard disk
localboot 0


You'll notice after the local boot is a 0 (zero). Sometimes on computers that have a recovery partition as 0 you may get an error. The answer in this case would be to try localboot 1 or localboot 2 and see if you get better results.

Still learning...
