  1. Sorry for late response. Mint7 works fine mate i got no issues booting the ISO but having Casper folder on root. I managed to Make persistant but that was with ISO extracted out. I cant get it Running persistant when booting from ISO title Linux Mint 7 find --set-root /Images/LinuxMint-7.iso map /Images/LinuxMint-7.iso (0xff) map --hook root (0xff) kernel /casper/vmlinuz boot=casper iso-scan/filename=/Images/LinuxMint-7.iso initrd /casper/initrd.gz boot Works on MOST laptops i use, occasionally get Busybox like above. All depends what machine, if i get busyboox i just bang my disk in.
  2. Thats pretty much how you do Mint7, but however i couldnt get it to run persistent :( have the casper-rw file and itll lock booting up
  3. Mate it all works fine. If you ctrl+alt+insert the VM, choose option it works. If you get a error, goto next on list without reboot thats where i got the error. All is ok. Fanstic work on that VM mate, allowed me to get LinuxMint7 working :)
  4. H@lo_f00 Nice way to test the USB. But nothing on my pendrive will boot bah Kon-Boot unfortunatly, yet all my utilites work if im to reboot my machine and boot off the USB. Here is my menu.lst timeout 60 default 0 title UK Patched Hirens.BootCD.9.9.iso map /Images/Hirens.BootCD.9.9.iso (hd32) map --hook chainloader (hd32) title Memtest86 kernel /Images/memtest86/ISOLINUX/MEMTEST title Blancco V4.9 map /Images/Blancco49.iso (hd32) map --hook chainloader (hd32) title Kon-Boot (floppy) map (hd0,0)/Images/FD0-konboot-v1.1-2in1.img (fd0) map --hook chainloader (fd0)+1 map (hd1) (hd0) map --hook rootnoverify (fd0) map --floppies=1 title Freedos map /Images/freedos.iso (hd32) map --hook chainloader (hd32) title Damn Small Linux kernel /dsl/linux24 ramdisk_size=100000 init=/etc/init lang=us apm=power-off vga=789 initrd=minirt24.gz nomce noapic BOOT_IMAGE=dsl initrd /dsl/minirt24.gz title -------------------- root title Boot from CD cdrom --init map --hook chainloader (cd0) boot title Boot from Hard Drive rootnoverify (hd0,0) chainloader (hd0,0)+1 Get Error 5 on everything
  5. It does this on every laptop i try. But im sure it works on my sisters laptop, an my friend madeone at work exact same way as mine and his works fine. I think the USB pendrive is the problem.
  6. When i boot off USB It does: Or something like that, so its asif it see's my usb as fd0? Or am i wrong somewhere
  7. Hi Dont suppose anyone can help. I use USB pen all day and im in the process of making a usb that holds everything i need on 1 drive for my job. Im a laptop engineer and most days need to Write DMI to HP/Compaq laptops and only way to do this is from DOS. So i have a USB that was formatted with HP Tool and then created it as a startup disk with the win98 files. Now that works great problem im having is, i cant seem to get to boot do a Dos prompt from GRUB. Ive tried alsorts, Ive even took a ISO of my USB and tried booting that but got a error, unsure what it was atm. So, i took all the boot files put them in a folder /win98/ Tried this: title find and load IO.SYS of Windows 9x/Me/DOS root (fd0,0) find --set-root /win98/io.sys chainloader /win98/io.sys An then get this error: Booting find and load IO.SYS Filesystem type is fat, partition type 0x0C (fd0) Will boot MS-Dos 7.x from drive=0x0, partition=0xff(hidden sectors=0x0) Starting windows 98... Type the name of the command Interpreter (e.g., C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND.COM) A> Can anyone give me any ideas regarding doing this. I just need a command prompt/dos prompt that i can run batch files from. Also when i tried booting the ISO i made i used: title Dos map (fd0,0)/images/dos.iso (hd32) map --hook chainloader (hd32) title Dos map /images/dos.iso (0xff) map --hook chainloader (0xff) Both of which failed. Any ideas people? Thanks
