Please re-read what has already been posted, sum up:
  1. it CANNOT do anything during boot ONLY once the OS is loaded (maybe, and I mean maybedubbio.gif) , and specifically the OS should be a Windows one - probably of the NT family only unsure.gif

I ve modified grub4dos grldr path, via hex-editing grldr. It wasn t so hard. You can see it in this post:

http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=11561

open grldr in hexeditor, search for "/boot/" string, find a line with hardcoded path /, /boot/, /boot/grub/ ...
only add, for example /grub4dos/
This works for me

It seems to me like you modified the embedded menu.lst, i.e. where grldr ONCE LOADED FROM ROOT looks for menu.lst. dubbio.gif

I.e. NOT actually what OP asked which is to modify the grldr.mbr or, more exactly, as tinybit stated the grldrstart.S code, in order to be able to put grldr NOT in ROOT. happy22.gif

Short, EXTREMELY "simplified" sum up of grub4dos booting:
  1. first sectors of grldr are loaded and executed.
  2. grldr search "for itself" in ROOT of drive ONLY
  3. it loads it's "embedded menu.lst" which loads the actual menu.lst, see here:

Can you post a link to the actual source of this info? (I mean apart the ads byt the actual manufacturer)

The product is here:
http://shop.mushkin.de/product_info.php?in...KNUFDMN8GB.html

The software is downloadable (though it won't probably work elsewhere and/or without the right serial) and it contains a very short user manual:
http://filestore.mushkin-emea.com/
http://filestore.mushkin-emea.com/Software...Usb_Mushkin.rar

It seems like it is something "triggered" as Autorun.exe ( i.e. exactly what we are trying to disable completely with Ninja Pendisk wink.gif).

At first sight it seems a lot NOT like a driver. sad.gif

The software is (obviously smiling9.gif ) from China:

I really cannot see what is the difficult part in these stickies:
http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=8944
http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=5041

I'll try again.

If you are a newbie, you should search here first:
http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=5041
and then on the board more generally if the particular item you want to boot has been ALREADY found to be bale to be booted AND there is a specific setting/report.

If it isn't there, you WON'T be able to boot it through direct grub4dos .iso mapping sad.gif (until you are not a newbie anymore wink.gif and you will find the needed changes or settings).

In other words half the world is ASSUMING that "ANY" .iso will work with a direct .iso to (hd32) or (0xff) mapping.

This is NOT the case.

MOST .iso's WON'T work without specific changes or specific menu.lst entries.

Hopefully the given thread lists the settings that have been found as working for some known items/distro's.

If your distro is not there, it is more likely that it won't work than that it will.

Got it, this was a bug in my logic... unallocated 2mb blocks also needed to be dumped to the raw image (filled with 0's).

So the dumped image (full disk image, i.e mbr+partition(s)) now can be mounted in all softwares like imdisk, vdk, etc ...

Good smile.gif, but if I get it right, this way you are "expanding" the converted image to it's maximum "dynamic" size.
On the contrary, you should create a "sparse" file, where trailing 00's sectors take no space. dubbio.gif

Live XP = embedded XP = PE 1.x

http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=11579

happy22.gif

  1. A PE is NOT an XP.
  2. It behaves differently.
  3. It's Registry is loaded in RAM.
  4. Unless you want to re-install the whatever you need EVERY TIME you boot, you need to add it to the BUILD.
  5. Generally speaking you never install anythng in a PE.


Though it is "similar" to XP it is NOT XP, it's a PE, you need to get this clear in your mind, though the solutions that you can find and apply to a PE are "similar" to those that you can find and apply to a XP (or maybe better "derived from"), they are DIFFERENT.

You see, we already had this kind of approach of a "hybrid" build:
http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=8615
but it was never finalized.

Let's agree on the fact that you are trying to build a PE and then we'll talk about "PE methods"...wink.gif

Using grub4dos, it would be interesting to boot Win98LiveCD.iso located in the hard disc. Is there a way to do it?


NO, idon't think you can "as is". unsure.gif

The .iso as it is set now looks for certain files on the "physical" CD drive.

menu.lst of the .iso:
QUOTE
color white/blue green/blue
timeout 0
default 0

title Mini Windows 98
find --set-root /Win98/WIN98.IMG
map --mem /Win98/WIN98.IMG (fd0)
map --hook
chainloader (fd0)+1
rootnoverify (fd0)
map --floppies=2

AUTOEXEC.BAT INSIDE WIN98.IMG:
QUOTE
A:\DOS\xmsdsk 48000 X: /t /y /c2
A:\DOS\DOSlfn
A:\DOS\shsucdx /d:oemCD001 /L:Y
copy start.bat X:\
A:\dos\7za.exe x A:\WIN98\Windows.7z -oX:
set comspec=X:\WINDOWS\command.com

CONFIG.SYS INSIDE WIN98.IMG:
QUOTE
device=A:\DOS\XCDROM.SYS /D:oemCD001
DEVICE=A:\DOS\HIMEMX.EXE /testmem:off
DEVICE=A:\DOS\ifshlp.sys
DEVICE=A:\DOS\dblbuff.sys


AUTOEXEC.BAT INSIDE WIN98.IMG/Windows.7z:
QUOTE
mode con codepage prepare=((850) X:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\ega.cpi)
mode con codepage select=850
keyb br,,X:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\keybrd.sys



CONFIG.SYS INSIDE WIN98.IMG/Windows.7z:
QUOTE
DEVICE=x:\WINDOWS\setver.exe

DEVICE=x:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS
DEVICE=x:\WINDOWS\emm386.exe noems
DEVICE=x:\WINDOWS\ifshlp.sys
DEVICE=x:\WINDOWS\dblbuff.sys


So. all in all when you boot from the .iso you have:
WIN98.IMG accessed as A:
Actual WHOLE CD accessed as Y:
Windows.7z (in RAMDISK) accessed as X:

I presume that you need to substitute SHSUCDX with SHSUCDRD
http://www.geocities.com/jadoxa/shsucdx/index.html
http://www.reocities.com/jadoxa/shsucdx/index.html
and use it to map the .iso into it's RAMDISK.

Cannot say if there will be conflicts with xmsdsk, though, nor what may happen at the windows re-boot. dubbio.gif

Point is "what" you will be using and "where" and "when".
Basically you have from MS a license to operate one of their OS either:
  1. on "any" machine no matter "which" on any number of machines as long as you run no more instance contemporarily that the number for which you have a license<-"Volume License"
  2. on one machine no matter "which" (no more than one instance contemporarily) <-"Full"
  3. on a "given" machine (no more than one instance contemporarily) <-OEM


#1 creates no problem.
#2 creates no problem as long as you are not using at the same time BOTH the "main" OS and the "PE" derived from it.
#3 may create a problem when and if you use the PE derived from the main OS on "another" machine.

Since version 1.6, if I recall correctly, the original Windows PE is available to everyone, through the WAIK.

Besides, you can download directly from Microsoft various "trial" versions that you can use as source to build your own PE.

A PE has some limitations, old 1.x series had a 24h limit, newish 2.x and 3.x have a 72 hours limit, then they will normally reboot.

In practice, as long as you use the PE for what it is intended, i.e. a Pre-installation Environment or a Recovery Environment for your PC (or PC's) on any machine for which you hold a legitimate MS OS license, there is nothing to worry about.

The moment you use it on a machine for which you have not a licensed MS OS, or you use the PE as a "replacement OS" you are substantially infringing the license.

About single apps, each one may have it's own license and it's own limitations, usually the PE's that you can download from the internet come with a number of COMMERCIAL or SHAREWARE softwares for which you have not a valid license, that's mainly the reason why they are tagged as "WAREZ".

Well, IMDISK cannot possibly work AFAIK, as well as most "drivers". dubbio.gif

Winimage does have some quirks, expecially if the image has a MBR.

Of the "non-mounting" or "non-drivers" tools around have you tried with 7-zip? unsure.gif

Since the original "dynamic disk" is a somehow "sparse" file, you should re-store the converted RAW as a sparse file too.
(of course ONLY allowed on NTFS and NOT on FAT12/16/32/64)

JFYI, maybe useful (includes source):

How much $ does it cost in Mb per second*Gbyte capacity?

http://www.amazon.com/Super-Talent-Express...424&sr=1-19

let's see:
Average RW=0.5*(130+43)=86.5
72/(86.5*16)=0.83

Plain $/Gb=72/16=4.5

120/(86.5*32)=0.043

http://www.amazon.com/Super-Talent-RAIDDri...496&sr=1-35
http://www.amazon.com/Super-Talent-RAIDDri...496&sr=1-26

Average RW=0.5*(316+142)=229
255/(229*32)=0.034
Plain $/Gb=255/32=7.97

365/(229*64)=0.025

So, I've written a program that will take a bunch of ISOs (or any files really), and copy them to a specified destination folder. But, instead of just doing a normal copy, it will re-write the destination file as a sparse file. This can be confirmed by right-clicking on the file and choosing 'Properties'. The .ISO file will show that it is 4,699,979,776 bytes. The size on disk will be less than this, possibly by a significant amount.

Here:
http://www.mutexed.com/code/FragExt/

Rigorously UNtested by me, should provide similar functionality as contig or wincontig, but with some added features:
QUOTE
FragExt is a free application and shell extension set, designed to help you manage file fragmentation on FAT, FAT32 and NTFS volumes.

The set includes
  • A unique file defragmenter which allows you to defragment specific files rather than an entire volume.
  • A file property extension for displaying detailed information about a file's, folder's and NTFS data stream's fragmentation information.
  • Windows Explorer column and info-tip extensions for displaying file fragments, extents, clusters, disk space usage and alternate data streams.
  • Integration extensions for simplifying the use of the FragExt defragmenter, allowing you to select and defragment files directly from within Windows Explorer.
  • Simple reporting features allowing you to save the information FragExt gathers.
  • A scriptable defragmentation engine, allowing you to create your own custom utilities.

Good. smile.gif

So, compare with Q&A #9, this is undeniably a problem between the kaspersky.iso and your specific hardware and has NOTHING to do with Sardu.

The right place to ask help about this issue is then obviously NOT the Sardu Forum, but rather the kaspersky one, here:
http://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?act=idx

To post there you will need to give anyway ALL the info I asked you before, including those that you failed to provide, namely:

1. It is the same one that you get for clicking KAV on sardu, I just got it from that link.

I am not going, like probably noone else will, to go around on a wild goose chase just in order to find WHAT is what you have a problem with. angry7.gif

QUOTE
3. It doesn't work at all on the sony, it just mounts and unmounts.

"mounts and unmounts" is NOT an EXACT description of the behaviour, it can be defined partial, vague, summed up, but definitely it fails to convey any meaningful information. hyper.gif

4. I'm not exactly sure about the model but it's the one with i7 and a 16.4in screen..

Get the §@η#ing laptop and READ any label you can find on it, then post what is written in them. ranting2.gif

QUOTE
7. again not exactly sure but it might be a dv4

Get the §@η#ing laptop and READ any label you can find on it, then post what is written in them. ranting2.gif

QUOTE
8. The kaspersky iso goes in to a black screen where thousands of scanning texts just flood the screen...

... and? unsure.gif

5 EXACT replies to 10 EXACT questions is not that bad, but I am sure you can do better. smile.gif
