No first part, goes straight to second.

25 posts in this topic

The "making-the-stick-part" seems to go just fine. However, when I put in in the computer I want to install onto, it goes straight to the second part, and the second part does not work; it immediately error-messages me. I've tried all the options available from boot.ini. I've also tested it on a second computer, and the same thing happens. What might be the cause of this?

What version of the program did you use?

Using 0.2.2 on WinXpProSp3. I'm using the HP format-option by the way, and a 2GB stick.

From what I see you have selected to prepare Recovery Console/Boot files only.

In this case you should be going to first part directly. What's the error message you are getting?

Check in folder BACKUP. Compress all CAB files into a zip archive and upload it here.

See my previous post. I prepared to USB for a full installation and uploaded the logfile.

It seems grub4dos MBR is present, but for some reason is failing to launch grldr, which is grub4dos loader.

Open up command prompt, CD to \winsetupfromusb\files\grub4dos\

and type:

grubinst -l -v (hd2)

Do you recognize your USB stick by its size? If not- change hd2 to hd1. When you recognize your USB stick issue:

grubinst -v (hd2,0)

replacing hd(2 with whatever number you found your USB stick at.

Please post the output of the last command and check if stick boots fine now.

I had to put in 3 instead of 2; that made it work. Windows now installed. One file was missing from the installation, but it worked just fine anyways. I'm at work right now, so I can't post the output, but your feedback was what it took, though. Thanks.

Ok I did this and all I get from the first output is:

C:\WinSetupFromUSB\files\grub4dos>grubinst -l -v (hd2)
grubinst: open: No error

So I changed (hd2) to (hd1) and then (hd3) and I still get the same.

I also tried the new test version you just posted and I get it with that too.... :(

Please attach with your next post WinSetupFromUSB.log file, found in program's directory.

What type/model is your USB stick?

What operating system are you running all this under?

Did you open CMD with admin rights when you issued the command above?

Try formatting in NTFS, unplug any unnecessary USB disks and do not plug them until you finish preparing your USB stick.

If still no luck- try the version below:
