No, you don't have to do that. The download extension is (.vmhd) which can ONLY be run using any virtual machine like Vmware, Vmplayer or Virtual box from Sun.

Please, re-read the first post by Nuno CAREFULLY and just follow the steps.

I see, but why you don't add a link in each forum to other websites. So that you link all of your websites !

@ Nuno,
It is really good step. but let me understand why you don't just add a sub-forum for this current one. Thus, you get all in one place. (something like what MSFN? doing)

Do you all think that the size of the Chromuim OS is considered to be HUGE for just ONLY a Browser OS?

I remember the days when I built a PE OS using BartPE or WinBuilder. I can make the size less than 700MB with a lot of programs and also Internet access. Moreover, if you use ubuntu live CD you have also a great OS with a lot of programs installed and sure with Internet support.

I hope that in the future Chromuim OS be less size than its now.

The first thing I missed the most was a file explorer.

Where do we keep files now? laugh.gif

The concept of cloudOS is good for:

- public internet kiosks
- for children
- company workstations

These are good uses and a network administrator would likely see his life made easy with it.

I'm absolutely agree with that cool.gif

I tried just today morning using Vmware and it worked very well before I get this alert for this Tutorial.

It is the first time to know that one can login to Chromium using the user name "Chronos". So, I think I will go to test this user and see what will happen and what I'm gonna to see.

Since Google have announced for its Clouding OS, I'm thinking IS OS (Windows, Mac , Linux...etc) will be a kind of history in the future?
I know that Clouding OS has a lot of advantages but will it make this OS the main and the next wave of OSes?

If we go back in memory and remember the start of the computer and how there was a workstation that any small computer was considered as a terminal for this workstation and any process was doing on this workstation. So, Is the future will be like the past?

I am so sorry i don't notice reporting their success

►Edit:
What is your opinion if we change the Topic to ISO mapping NOT working and list here all not working ISO and pend this topic with the working ISO.
One may say We have all working ISO in a topic and elsewhere ISO that not stated in the topic are not working.
This is not so far right. There are non-tested ISO which we can't say they belong to not working section.

Once grub4dos has chainloaded NTLDR, "control" is passed to BOOT.INI.

@ Jaclaz,

Thanks for the topic and your help.

Q1. I need download link for convert.exe, I download the whole package and can't find it.
A1. Convert.exe is part of 2K/XP:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/214579/EN-US/
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314097/en-us

I am sorry if my question is not clear enough. What I mean by convert.exe is that one in ImageMagick tool which is mentioned in this page


QUOTE
Normally ONLY Primary Partitions can be made "Active" or "Bootable".

No more than 1 (one) Partition entry in MBR can be set to "Active".

So, What is the need for primary partitions if there not all are boot?!

http://www.ranish.com/part/primer.htm

Thanks the link is really great and help me a lot to understand hard disk but there is one question about the article
► Q: What is the need of bootsector in each extended partition?!

QUOTE
A5. Well, there is NO such thing as "ISO map", meaning that there is not a "one-size-fits-all" solution, some .iso can be mapped, some cannot.

I try to map OS2 image but grub4dos tell me I need to defragment the image. So Which utility that can defragment the image?
I know that WinImage can defragment the floppy Images but when I try it with ISO the option is not supported.

This topic is an open discussion to find a way to boot OS in the 2nd partition (extended one) but its boot loader in the 1st partition (primary).

let me explain more with an example:
You have ONLY one Hard disk and this hd contains 4 partitions

CODE
Hard Disk
   |_____ 4 Partitions ______ 1 Primary [C:\]   ---► Windows 98 SE
                |
                |____________ 3 Extended [D:\ , E:\ , F:\ ]
                                           |       |____|
                                           |          |
                                           |          |_____ ► Data Partitions
                                           |
                                           |
                                           |________________ ► Windows XP



so now 1st partition [ C:\ ] contains both io.sys ( Windows 98 SE boot loader) and ntldr (Windows XP/NT boot loader)

Now if we use this boot SDI script
CODE
title find and load NTLDR of Windows NT/2K/XP
root (hd0,0)/ntldr
chainloader (hd0,0)/ntldr
boot

title find and load IO.SYS of Windows 9x/Me
find --set-root /io.sys
chainloader /io.sys
boot


► This will boot Windows 9x/Me but not NT/2K/XP

Also I change (hd0,0) <--> (hd0,1) in the above code and copy Windows XP boot files [ ntldr - boot.ini - ntdetect.com - AUTOEXEC.BAT ] to [ D:\ ] but I get an error: can't mount partition mad.gif

So HOW we can boot XP?!

Tested with VistaPE using grub4dos-0.4.3-2008

BootSDI Script
CODE
title Boot from VistaPE.iso ( CD Image)
map (hd0,0)/VistaPE0.iso (0xFF)
map --hook
root (0xFF)
chainloader (0xFF)
boot


also with (hd32) instead of (0xFF)
and both

Result:Failure. I don't try with memory mapping.

I test this ISO with isoemu v1.09 and it work OK

@ diddy,

Thank you a lot for your excellent Tutorial for Grub4Dos it is really interesting.

While I am reading you tut I find some typos that need to be fix.
QUOTE
Boot Options.htm
1st line: utilises --> utilizes

Map Command.htm
Nested Maopping section
2nd line: utilises --> utilizes

Booting Disk Image Files
section
this maps the image file (in this case PE.img --> sectionthis maps the image file (in this case PE.ima

I fix the .htm pages and pack them to you.
