loserpro2 Posted December 9, 2009 Share Posted December 9, 2009 Hi there. i'm new to the forum and i digested the 5x24 and 6x02 (not too sure about 6x02 but i'm sure i went through the other video) in regards to multipass/multiboot usbs. i have a few questions regarding this as i have been going through a few problems all night and i am stuck like mad. it should also be noted i am a linux noob, but i felt proud to have at least solve a few problems along the way. i have wanted to create a multipass at the moment with at least Hiren's Boot CD and Ubuntu. I have also chosen to include Ultimate Boot CD and GParted as well for times when i will need it - most likely installing OSX86, which is like rarely. However, the biggest problems right now i have are these: 1) Hiren's Boot CD version 10.1 In terms of booting this, i have managed to sucessfully boot it to the menu selection screen along with entering into the sub menus to choose the sub items. however, there are particular items that i am unable to start up, and i see that they somehow have an asterisk/star behind the name of the program. when i try to load it, it will end up saying "HBCD is not found" and so on. I was thinking, i am booting from HBCD so how can it somehow end up not finding it? is there a solution for this? 2) Linux based Ubuntu and GParted In regards of these two programs, i end up having Kernal Panic and can not continue to load or do anything after the program gets stuck. i do not know the reason why this is happening. it feels very weird to me - or that i am used to using unetbootin for making USB bootable Ubuntu systems. I can post a printscreen if it helps in understanding the problem. I have continously tested on VMware with the USB VM tester and only managed to solve problems for Ultimate Boot CD although i have never loaded the programs inside. Here is some other info, which i am not sure if it helps: Computer Spec/Info: Lenovo Thinkpad X200 (1st Gen) with 3GB ram and 160gb hdd with Vista Home Premium. USB selected for task: Sandisk Cruzer 4GB - New version which does not come with U3 system. Programs used in process (Not in order): Ubuntu 9.10 and 9.04 (LiveCD) iso Gparted Version 0.4.4 (although i just realised my menu says 4.3-2, typo = =) Hiren's Boot CD version 10.1 Ultimate Boot CD forgot which version menu.lst for your information: splashimage /bgimage/yourimage.xpm.gz color yellow/blue white/black timeout 120 title Hiren’s Boot CD ver 10.1 kernel /memdisk initrd /HBCD/WinTools/boot.gz title Ultimate Boot CD For Windows map (hd0,0)/ubcd.iso (hd32) map --hook chainloader (hd32) boot title Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop find --set-root /ubuntu904.iso map /ubuntu904.iso (0xff) map --hook root (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 boot title Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop find --set-root /ubuntu910.iso map /ubuntu910.iso (0xff) map --hook root (0xff) kernel /casper/vmlinuz file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper iso-scan/filename=/ubuntu910.iso quiet splash locale=en.UTF-8 --initrd /casper/initrd.gz boot title Gparted 0.4.3-2 Partition Editor configfile /gparted_submenu.lst #this is for a space title kernal initrd title Restart The Computer reboot many thanks for your help.
