hello hak5 this is my first post due to the fact that usb multipass interested me. So far i have BT4,UBCD5 beta,and hirens 10 with plans for helix 3, system rescue cd, trinity, and anything else helpful

basic:petousb, grubinst, grub4dos

usb organized

root:HBCD10

grldr

menu.lst

UBCD5

casper

BT4

HBCD9.9

my menu.lst:

title Boot the First Hard Disk

rootnoverify (hd1)

chainloader +1

title UBCD5

root (hd0,0)

configfile /UBCD5/ubcd/menus/grub4dos/main.lst

title Back Track 4

root (hd0,0)

configfile /BT4/boot/grub/bt4menu.lst

title Hirens 10

kernel /HBCD10/memdisk

initrd /HBCD10/boot.gz

title Hirens 9.9

kernel /HBCD9.9/memdisk

initrd /HBCD9.9/boot.gz

title restart

reboot

bt4 sub menu.lst:

splashimage=/BT4/boot/grub/bt4.xpm.gz

title Start BackTrack FrameBuffer (1024x768)

kernel /BT4/boot/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper nopersistent rw quiet vga=0x317

initrd /BT4/boot/initrd.gz

title Start BackTrack FrameBuffer (800x600)

kernel /BT4/boot/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper nopersistent rw quiet vga=0x314

initrd /BT4/boot/initrd800.gz

title Start BackTrack Forensics (no swap)

kernel /BT4/boot/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper nopersistent rw vga=0x317

initrd /BT4/boot/initrdfr.gz

title Start BackTrack in Safe Graphical Mode

kernel /BT4/boot/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper xforcevesa rw quiet

initrd /BT4/boot/initrd.gz

title Start Persistent Live CD

kernel /BT4/boot/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper persistent rw quiet

initrd /BT4/boot/initrd.gz

title Start BackTrack in Text Mode

kernel /BT4/boot/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper nopersistent textonly rw quiet

initrd /BT4/boot/initrd.gz

title Start BackTrack Graphical Mode from RAM

kernel /BT4/boot/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper toram nopersistent rw quiet

initrd /BT4/boot/initrd.gz

title Memory Test

kernel /BT4/boot/memtest86+.bin

title Boot the First Hard Disk

root (hd1)

chainloader +1

so far everything works and if anyone could provide info on transfer or menu entry it would be appreciated or could point me in the direction of useful distros/ bootable tools

hello I see I'm getting some views I hope my research journey helps you accomplish usb multipass and i hope for u to respond with questions or answers to this project, I still have not figured out trinity issues but i moved on to helix for the moment i can boot from Helix2009R1.iso but it stalls at file system everything else fine for now until i see a new error to troubleshoot.

helix menu.lst:

title helix

find --set-root /Helix2009R1.iso

map /Helix2009R1.iso (hd32)

map --hook

root (hd32)

chainloader (hd32)

help appreciated

As far as TRK goes the only successful way I've been able to boot it on one partition (while I'm sure there are others) is by having the TRK iso contents on the root of your drive and not in a separate folder (in your case /Trinity).

My menu entry looks like this and works well:

title Trinity Rescue Kit 3.3 (default)
kernel /kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 vga=788 splash=verbose pci=conf1 vollabel=MULTIPASS
initrd /initrd.trk

Thank you Ekoh for the entry that works but i hate usb clutter will try to find nicer looking method

also working on helix, mri, ghost, system rescue cd

need help with iso emulation in particular getting filesystem to mount in helix found this entry that might point me in right direction

mount /casper filesystem from iso???? if so what other distros can boot from include casper?if works

http://hak5.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=14105

thanks haxwithaxe for idea

title Ubuntu LiveCD

find --set-root /ubuntu904.iso

map /ubuntu904.iso (0xff)

map --hook

rootnoverify (0xff)

kernel /casper/vmlinuz file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper iso-scan/filename=/ubuntu904.iso quiet splash locale=en.UTF-8 --

initrd /casper/initrd.gz

need to boot from iso due to bt4 /casper on root if workaround for this exists please point me in direction

thank you in advance

The trinity helped worked great - thanks.

I'd love to be able to use the boot menu though. Any way around that yet?

You can translate the syslinux or isolinux entries from the trk disc into grub and put them in your menu.lst or a submenu.lst. That's it unless you put trk on it's own partion.

Just a hint on the translation everything after the kernel name or initrd name on the same line are usually arguments for the kernel or initrd and not syslinux or isolinux commands. That tripped me up when i did this for my first multiboot usb (premultipass).

dont know if this will help at all but here is my trk entry from my grub2 .cfg i have it off in a separate folder

menuentry "Trinity Rescue Kit" {

linux /trk3/kernel.trk ramdisk_size=49152 root=/dev/ram0 gfxpayload=1024x768 splash=verbose pci=conf1 vollabel=MULTIPASS

initrd /trk3/initrd.trk
