i still prefere to install arch in the classic way, with a standalone (grub) boot partition, after installation, copy all on a backup disk, format /,/home etc into btrfs format, then copy back :)

booting btrfs with grub2
the current grub2 version works, as far as i can tell, nicely with root on btrfs, even if boot is on it and inside the root subvolume. So the article could be simplyfied i guess.--Ctx 09:10, 12 October 2011 (EDT)
- I'm not into btrfs but the article seems to make use of syslinux/extlinux at the moment: you could add the grub2 way as an alternative (maybe preferred alternative?). -- Kynikos 08:05, 13 October 2011 (EDT)
- Hello everyone, I am going to begin writing the grub2-bios directions for running from a btrfs root partition using grub2-bios, subvolumes, and gpt. I think showing how to use btrfs with grub2 is important and it took me days to figure it out. --Demizer 01:01, 18 February 2012 (EST)
Rewrote article and added grub2 info.
Hey guys and gals, I finished the rewrite adding info for GRUB2 installations and restoring from a backup. I will go back and do more edits after my brain has been given a chance to relax. Please note that I completely rewrote the article and added a lot of sections. The previous sections on syslinux didn't work for me when I tried to use it, so I spent three days researching the method to install btrfs, gpt, and grub2. So basically, the syslinux info is out of date and I don't want to go learn about syslinux to fix it. Thanks! --Demizer 20:10, 18 February 2012 (EST)
