Hi Kai,

I am also interested in using this fallback feature for a grub disk that I 
am making. 
I paste here the grub documentation about the commands you're talking about 
but if you tell us what you tell us I don't know why it doesn't work to 


If you happen to make it work, please tell us. In 2 or 3 weeks I'll be able 
to play with fallbacks commands and maybe would use the default ones... 
perhaps I'll tell you about my experience.
