IrishFavor Posted August 10, 2010 Share Posted August 10, 2010 Hi Everyone, this is a project i am working on that is basically an expanded version of the USB Multiboot. First off i am using the USB Multiboot .ISO method as in all of the software is packaged into an .ISO file and then run as a virtual CD within grub for DOS. I used the pre-compiled software from http://www.pendrivelinux.com/boot-multiple...-multiboot-usb/ then i have added acronis true image, konboot, Knoppix STD, and Ultimate Boot CD for Windows. That takes care of the DOS side of booting into different O.S. Next what i have done is download several programs from http://portableapps.com/ and used a program to add them to the U3 Menu. The Program i used can be found at http://usb.smithtech.us/projects/shortcut_creator.php Now we have a drive that can boot in DOS and Windows, the next item that i am trying to figure out is how to boot a virtual machine of windows XP, Vista, or 7 from the device in windows, and boot a full copy of Windows XP from grub. as far as booting in grub i took a look at this article, http://www.ngine.de/article/id/8. It looks promising but i was unable to get it to work. Next as far as being able to boot from within windows, the purpose of this is so that when at public terminals you can carry all of your software with you (i.e. Microsoft office, adobe photoshop, ect.) so that you never have to touch the public terminal. It would be ideal to leave nothing behind on the computer. I have tried Mojopac http://www.mojopac.com/ which shows promise, but sadly is not quite there as it does not support x64 bit windows as well as vista or 7. Also i have tried MokaFive http://www.mokafive.com/, this seams to work on a number of different Virtual O.S. but i have found it to be to buggy when trying to get a virtual windows to run. If there is anyone here who has had any luck with any of these or knows a simple solution for this i would appreciate any help that could be given thank you.
