Guys, I've made a customized Multiboot Dvd using Easyboot.
My objective was to make a multiboot DVD that had these options
1. boot of the local hard drive
2. Boot XP install CD
3. Boot Vistape
4. boot ibm live linux raid CD

I have been able to sucessfully launch, options 1-3
however the Knoppix isn't working.
When i select the linux option, it looks like its going to boot gets to the pinguen screeen, but then
it stays at a # prompt.

have any of you tried this or have any suggestions on how i can get this to work ?
attached is a screen shot of where it hangs using virtual pc.

The only known way to boot a PE based .iso is through RAMDISK booting.
Read this seemingly unrelated thread:
http://www.boot-land.net/forums/?showtopic=4952

The newish releases of grub4dos have (limited) support for booting .iso images, but often the Lnux based .iso must be modified in order to work.

Guys, I'm in a bit a of a pickle. I need to make a multiboot dvd that has both vistape and a live linux cd. How would you recommend I do this ? I've tried Easyboot but it doesn't play nice with linux; linux doesnt finish loading. Would it be possible for me to make a boot disc using bcdw2 booting the linux of an iso ? What information could i provide you with that could help?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Guys, I am creating a multiboot disk that has the Windows sever 2003 install and a live linux. The problem I am having is that when I create the ISO (using Magic ISO) I am given options for Rockridge , Joliet or ISO16690?? (you get the point). Anywho, when I create the Iso using the ISO1660 Windows works but Linux doesn't. Conversely , when I use Rockridge, linux works but windows doesn't. Does anyone know of any settings or ISO creation apps that I can use to make an ISO that is both windows an linux friendly for this multiboot project?

Thank you

There are different Linux arround. Each version may require different solution.

There are two approaches:

1) use filesystem ISO9660 and Joliet:
e.g. Knoppix find image at Joliet or Rock Ridge file system.
Joliet is limited in file name lenth, but should match current requirements 2003 install and linux.

2) use filesystem ISO9660 and Rock Ridge:
XP, 2003 boot sector file dosn't like Rock Ridge.
Use a appropiate bootloader. Use a bootloader to load setupldr.bin directly.
E.g. BCDW or grub4dos.

nytechman,

I have re-assembled your different threads in this one as they all circle around the same or nearly the same topic.

To re-cap:
1) I don't think anyone here is familiar with Easybootcd
2) try using grub4dos (as suggested by me)
3) try using grub4dos or BCDW (as suggested by cdob)

Take your time browsing the dedicated grub4dos forum:
http://www.boot-land.net/forums/?showforum=66

Search the board, you might have found this:
http://www.boot-land.net/forums/?showtopic=4707

That gives some hints, and there are more related topics.....
