The command that generates the error is printed above the error code and description; what is the command?

All of the ones in the list that don't work generate that error.

using this

title Hirens 9.9 ISO

map --mem (hd6,0)/boot/iso/Hirens.BootCD.9.9.iso (hd32)

map --hook

chainloader (hd32)

generates

ERROR 11: Unrecognised Device String

I can't seem to fix it - I know that hd6 is where my linux drive is, and i want to load these images to memory (4GB RAM ftw!) and it just gives me the same error all the time!

There should be a line above the error.

nop

nothing thats the top of the screen, then it says Press Any Key to Continue...

Also i tried

title Hirens 9.9 ISO

find --set-root (hd6,0)/boot/iso/Hirens.BootCD.9.9.iso

map (hd6,0)/boot/iso/Hirens.BootCD.9.9.iso (0xff)

map --hook

rootnoverify (0xff)

also without the (hd6,0) and that gives me a Error 15: File Not Found...

Alright, I looked over your code again and it looks like you're not chainloading some of them. On the ones that you are chainloading but still don't work, try adding "+1" directly after the virtual drive, so it would look something like "(hd32)+1"
