The cdrom(xyz) references (for what can be of use):

http://reboot.pro/to...-arc-path-quiz/

http://reboot.pro/to...testers-needed/

According to the above:

  • cdrom(224) should be Primary Channel
  • cdrom(239) should be Secondary Channel

but the results are not definite (nor seemingly useful).

You'd need to play a bit to find the right syntax, if possible at all.
If you are testing on a Dell system use the modified ntdetect.com just in case.

Besides, is it just an experiment? Why not start setup directly from the CD?

Install Windows from USB, boot Linux, multiboot and a lot more with WinSetupFromUSB

And this what has to do with the ARCPATH cdrom(xyz) mapping? :unsure:
If you need a floppy drive for "F6 drivers", you can use a virtual floppy alright, using grub4dos and firadisk.

Googling a little I found this syntax for accesing CD-Drives

multi(0)disk(0)cdrom(159)\I386="..CD on 9F" /minint /fastdetect /sos
multi(0)disk(0)cdrom(239)\I386="..CD on EF" /minint /fastdetect /sos
multi(0)disk(0)cdrom(224)\I386="..CD on E0" /minint /fastdetect /sos
multi(0)disk(0)cdrom(130)\I386="..CD on 82" /minint /fastdetect /sos

I tried all numbers and 224 finally works for me, setup load his files from the CD :w00t: 

Some seconds after, it stuck on "Setup is starting windows"  :huh: and inmediately BSOD 0x7B

Now I have removed CD-Drive from Boot Sequence and used

cdrom --init 
map --hook

running the following command

find --set-root /win51ip.sp3 

 give me (hd64) as output and running the following command 

root (hd64)

gives me (hd64) Filesystem type is iso9660, using whole disk

 

 

Now Booting the small ISO: Again BSOD 0x7B stuck

Look, if you read attentively the given thread:
http://reboot.pro/to...-arc-path-quiz/

it is clear how the result of using a cdrom(xyz) arcpath normally results in a 0x0000007b, and usually VV2006 (and all the other posters on that thread) actually know where their towel is :yes:.

If you try and explain what your actual issue/problem is (as opposed to revolving around what is the solution to it according to you) maybe it is possible that someone can help you in solving or workign around the actual problem/issue :).

If you want to go ahead along that path, possibly you may find of interest this thread here:
http://reboot.pro/to...e-fast-boot-pe/
which hints about a "hybrid boot" of a PE 1.x (and the Windows XP install is a "particular" kind of PE 1.x), though still there is not (yet) a solution for booting from CD-ROM.  :(
