I've read all files in doc folder as well as done some google search..

I don't know if I need any COM32 modules: I'm building "make bios ..",
partitioning disk as gpt and plan to boot a single linux distro:
  LABEL xxx
           LINUX /boot/vmlinuz-3.12.19
           APPEND root=PARTUUID=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx \
                         rootfstype=ext4 rootdelay=1

I might add some options in text menu, but that's more less all of what I need.
