It's fun to read http://forum.ru-board.com/
with google translation.
I don't understand some translation parts.
I understand: a Asus A6Q00VM, Pentimum M call, I915 chipset does require fixBoot.USB.
I expect a USB boot nightmare (Dell Dimension 5150) would require this too.
fixBoot.USB. does require a addional reboot and is disabled by default therefore.
I may change fixBoot.USB settings at setup.cmd: detect missing USB drive
Understood finally, I'll add too: if exist c:%ISO_file_search% set reassign=true
Need some time. This includes mkISO_RAMload_sort.cmd, read below.
Yes, winnt.sif [MassStorageDrivers] and floppy txtsetup.oem fails. Driver not found.
Another idea: write to winnt.sif inside RAM ISO, disable [MassStorageDrivers].
Sort some files at mkISO_RAMload_sort.cmd
rem sort some recovery console files
FOR %%a in (autochk.ex? autofmt.ex? kbd*.dl?) do (
call :sort_boot ./%boot_directory% %%a)
if exist ASMS echo ./%boot_directory%/ASMS/* -7000>>%sort_lst%
And load first 20mb: map --mem (0xFE)+10000 (0xFF)
Does mentioned recovery console start by default?
Do you have to press F10 at F6 message?

There was a question about mkisofs -input-charset utf-8 and -duplicates-once.http://forum.ru-boar...mp;start=1680#3http://forum.ru-boar...p;start=1720#19
I don't understand clearly: does this refer to windows or another operating system?
Alex Kopylov (former bootcd.ru) added -duplicates-once and -force-uppercase in 2004.
This mingw32 version isn't supported since 2004. There is no charset utf-8.
Mkisofs uses iconv nowadays http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iconv
And cygwin file cygiconv-2.dll does offer charset utf-8.
Integrate -duplicates-once source code to current cdrtools version and compiled at cygwin:
Source code cdrtools-2.01.01a66-bootcd.ru-mkisofs.tar.gz
Win32 binaries cdrtools-2.01.01a66-bootcd.ru-mkisofs.7z
This version support -input-charset utf-8 and -duplicates-once, however russian characters are not tested.
Sorry, no more idea. There is a strange BIOS.
