I've attempted to make a multiboot CD using CDShell, the only options i'm using are Partition magic 8 (.IMA file made from boot diskettes with winimage) winxp pro sp1 and 2003 enterprise. When I try to boot the partition magic image, I get an error saying PM8.IMA was not found, even though its in the root of the CD and cdshell.ini points to "memdisk /PM8.IMA". My XP and 2003 Server installations also don't boot. When I try to install them, setup can't find the EULA and stops. The installation files are under setup\winxppro\i386. I'll draw a diagram to explain...

PRO1.DAT (root of CD)>all instances of i386 replaced with PRO1 (folder in the root of CD). SetupSourcePath = "\SETUP\WINXPPRO\" in txtsetup.sif in \PRO1.

I don't know where this has gone wrong but somehow, the files from the original CD are missing from the process :)

The Partition Magic file in the ini is .IMG not IMA, I just changed it in the ini file but, copying the 2 disk to a folder then making a 2.88 image didn't seem to work for me. I got a dump code when I tried to go into it..

The ISO DVD out of MSDN has a few quirks...

I am getting a "Cannot find NTLDR" when I select Win2k pro and Win2k3 Ent.
I also have 2 setupldr.bins, one in the pro1 and i386 and the ent2 and it's i386 dir.
I changed them all to the paths stated but, I think the MSDN versions are hoaky in that they are mixed breeds ... :rolleyes:

May have to try this at home with retail software... :)
