i'm trying to copy the method used in
SOME WAREZ which name was removed by jaclaz
which mounts win_xp.iso to ram by creating temp drive or floppy
then use imdisk to auto mount same iso image for gui mode after restart...
this is quite fast way to install windows
i modified menu.lst as per the mentioned WAREZ release
this is wht i did...
title Windows XP x32 - Professional\n
find --set-root /image/XP_Inst.gz
map --mem /image/XP_Inst.gz (fd0)
map --mem /image/XP_Inst.gz (fd1)
map /image/XP32.iso (0xfe)
map --mem (0xfe)+290000 (0xff)
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
its works like a charm...
it also works for server 2003 32bit...
but for windows xp 64 its not gud...
wht i did is I add firadisk64 driver into XP_Inst.gz
and make firadisk64 as default driver...
it helps me a lot and my text mode setups goes fine it reads my winnt.sif.... everything is ok
but after restart when gui mode starts it comes up with an error to insert disk of windows xp x64...
need some solution to auto mount winxp64.iso image after 1st restart only....
Thnx n waiting for solution
