Recommended Posts

OK kiddies, :D, well i been trying to multiboot for quite some time, also with my hacking tools and others(cain,wireshark,netcat,open office, portable photoshop, etc etc)

Your probably like JUST TELL ME ALREADY, ok i will just calm down, put down the red bull..

http://www.pendrivelinux.com/boot-multiple...-multiboot-usb/

NO ways, and it uses grub4dos, :o.

just a few problems, It needs the tables of ophcrack, no worries they hate a table extracting down the page for xp and vista, and the other is a very limited list of bootable iso's.

So post here any boot menu additions, the main one im looking for is BT4 final, but please free feel to post any here that you happened to get works because we all a little bit of something increase something happens.

And also you can change the image of the linux penguin using the same method as shown in episode 524, dont forget to gzip and crush to 14 colors :D.

Hope this help everyone

Okay so i tried using Multiboot-v0.7 and it gives me a NSIS error saying the integrity check failed. How did you get it to work? I am running win 7 Ultimate and i have tried Win XP sp2 and 3 compatibility modes as well as Vista comp. modes. I have also re-downloaded it 4 or 5 times now and no luck.

Thank you

did you format it? what kind of usb are you using? i recommend using a 8 gig flash.

Yes, i formated to Fat32 and NTFS after and its an 8GB Lexar when i launch the program i get a NSIS installer error. ill try it on my windows XP box maybe that will work

ok so kon-boot will work just enter this into the menu.lst file

so download the floppy img and put it in the root of the drive.

code:

title Kon-Boot

map --mem /FD0-konboot-v1.1-2in1.img (fd0)

map --hook

chainloader (fd0)+1

map (hd1) (hd0)

map --hook

rootnoverify (fd0)

and this is a handy option to boot into the first hard drive for what ever reason

code:

title Boot first HDD

map (hd0) (hd1)

map (hd1) (hd0)

map --hook

chainloader (hd0)+1

rootnoverify (hd0)

and has any one found a menu.lst line that can boot puppy arcade from a iso? its the next one on the list.

the only way I got windows 7, xp or vista working is by extracting the cd to the root of the drive and calling bootmgr (win7) or the boot file of the cd with grub, mounting a iso of a windows cd always crashes while installing

title Load bootmgr

root (hd0,0)

chainloader (hd0,0)/bootmgr

for multiple os capabilities check the microsoft deployement tool thread

the only downside there is so far is that it reformats the whole drive when you install :s

Remember that you can't boot a fragmented file. So the best way to get a big image files working, is to format the drive(Or delete all files), and start transferring the biggest files first.

PS. I've only tried to boot the W7 iso to the bootloader(Press any key to boot from CD...).

So I dunno if a whole install will work.

Contig, Defraggler, and just about any other third-party defragmenting program can defrag single files.

True, but I found that they could have a hard time defragging a large file, if you are close to the capacity limit.

I even had problems getting them to defrag a big iso, that there were lots of "uninterrupted" free space for.

If defragging fails, then try my suggestion.

After my attempt to defrag failed, I formated my drive and started to transfer the biggest files first, one at a time and checked that they were not fragmented after each transfer.

I also use that program, It is quick and easy. But i could not get any WinPe's to work with ISO files. I have to extract the ISO and make it boot eather BOOTMGR or NTLDR. That works but now i am stuck with only using one of them. I tried parttion the USB drive and put the files on the other parttion. I am so missing something.

I am stuck on ERD Commander and Pe Builder 3.5 (UBCD). Anyone have any ideas?

I have tierd:

title ERD Commander 5.0 for Windows XP / Windows 2003

find --set-root(hd0,2) /ntldr

chainloader /ntldr

But still no luck.
