Fresh topics from boot land Wed, 18 Feb 2009 06:40:09 +0000 60 grub4dos, .iso images and (hd32) or (0xFF) mapping
Ideally, any user who had some success with this way of booting can post here reporting what he succeeded with and how he did it, links to other boards, tutorials guides related to the matter are also welcome.

PLEASE NO request for help here, post them in the grub4dos forum.

PLEASE NO "Nice, thank you!" kind of posts.

PLEASE NO "Ha, this is not useful!" type of comments.

This thread should become simply a list of working setups, no more, no less. smile.gif

Thanks for cooperation.

Great Progress, hit a snag
I finished my bootable hard drive and now I'm working on a multiboot USB stick.

I'm using Grub4dos and I have several ISO's in a subdirectory of my single partition 16gig stick (FAT32).

I've been able to load Dell Diagnostics, NT Offline Password Editor (CD form) Acronis Toolkit, Windows Vista recovery disk and Dell Image Direct all successfully using ISO mapping.

However, Windows XP setup and ERD commander both give me 0x000007B blue screens, which the internet says is result of an unreadable boot volume.

It makes me think that something is getting changed and the correct boot drive is being lost.

Here's the code I'm using:

title ERD 5.0 -NOT WORKING-
find --set-root --ignore-floppies /ISOs/erd50.iso
map /ISOs/erd50.iso (hd32)
map --hook
root (hd32)
chainloader (hd32)

title Windows XP (For CHKDSK) -Does Not Work-
find --set-root --ignore-floppies /ISOs/XP.iso
map /ISOs/XP.iso (hd32)
map --hook
chainloader (hd32)

Any thoughts?

I updated the thread with my successful boots.]>

Open file - Security warning
Can anyone shed some light on how to disable this Open File - Security Warning in VistaPE v12 RC1. I have successfully built numerous VPE builds using different configurations, yet each and everytime I try to execute a batch file from my build server, I am always getting prompted to RUN or CANCEL. What I would really like is to just be able to click on the shortcut to the batch files that I created in the BSExplorer and the batch job run. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated!! biggrin.gif]>

<![CDATA[一步一步教你用WinBuilder做中文PE]> 1. 下载WinBuilder
现在最新的版本是074, 就下它吧
下载后,得到WINBUILDER074.ZIP, 通常,我们都会直接解压到WINBUILDER074子目录, 这样会遇到WB第一个BUG,
checktools 脚本会把子目录中的"0" 替换成其他字符串,导致CHECKTOOLS报错,所以,应该把WINBUILDER074子目录改为WINBUILDER.
解压后, WINBUILDER子目录只有一个文件WINBUILDER.EXE, 绿色软件,不用安装,可直接运行。

2. 运行WinBuilder
双击 "WinBuilder.exe", 出现WinBuilder 界面. WinBuilder只是一个脚本运行器, 所有制作PE的工作由脚本完成,所以必须下载脚本后才能制作PE.

WEB项是一个简单的WEB 浏览器,给你查找帮助用

3. 选择下载项目
点击Servers, 选择 "" 然后再左边,你可以选择 COMPLETE",
然后再选择 "NativeEx_barebone", "NativeEx_core", "Tools" 三项, 然后点击Download.
下拉选择框中, 选择后,程序会计算你需要选择多少文件
注: BareBone 和 Core 必须一起选择,因为nativeEX_BAREBONE会调用nativeEX_CORE中的文件

4. 项目下载完成
下载完成后, the WB 会重启,重启后,多出了 SCRIPTS选项卡

5. 选择XP CD源路径
在Source Directory中,点击文件夹图标,选择中文XP或2003安装盘所在路径.

6. 脚本选择,你可以什么都不选,直接用缺省设置,直接按蓝色"play"按钮来制作PE.
CheckTools (可以单独运行一次,以后都不选)
Define Fundamental
Retrieve Project Info
Make Directories
HoJoPE Hives Factory (版本号必须43或以上)
Build Model
Copy and Expand files
-Explorer Tweaks
Misc Settings
Display Properties
Registry Editor
Task Manager
-Drivers (PC模拟器的网卡驱动,可根据实际情况选择)
qEmu 0.9.0 Network Driver
Universal Video Driver
VirturalBox / VMware Network
Virtual PC Intel Network Driver
-1 Optimization
autoCompress (版本号7以上)
Chinese PRC Support (版本号3以上)
-2 Create Image
Create ISO
-3 Emulation
Run ISO in VirtualBox (需要另外下载安装,如果觉得麻烦也可用WinBuilder自带QEMU)

<![CDATA[[Script] CMDTweaks.Script]>
For all the lot of people here liking it colored! laugh.gif

You can get the script via the WinBuilder download center from the nativeEx server, or directly here.


BTW: The script does not make much practical sence (A bit it does: You can define CMD in your PE. But what does it help ... Everybody can work with every style CMD .....). It is more a Tutorial, or HowTo]>

Acronis True Image Echo Omni with UR Now updated to support all product versions, please note, the script is not finalized, it should be considered beta software!
As Winbuilder scripts use variables all the time, it was easy enough to mold a script into a universal trueimage tool.
This will make keeping different copies for different versions a thing of the past!

bartpecore supports all trueimage echo versions.
livexp, nativeex, nativepe, now also supported.

script status: fairly stable (tested platforms)

*thanks to carfan for performing several tests.
*thanks to dera for spotting an important path inconsistancy.

Please join in some tests and report the results of your version.
Please use script reduction and packing options with care.

For all True Image Echo v9.5 products ..]>
