Adding Win95 to multiboot DVD

Recommended Posts

Hi all, i've been searching all night and cannot get win95 to work on my multiboot dvd.

My dosc contains Win95, Win98, WinME, Xp Home, Pro & MCE 2005.

The setup files are located in a folder named setup ie:

C:\DVD\Setup\95\

C:\DVD\Setup\98SE\

C:\DVD\Setup\Me\

C:\DVD\Setup\XP\Home

C:\DVD\Setup\XP\Pro

C:\DVD\Setup\XP\MCE

i am using cdshell.ini to chain the corresponding ima or dat files.

98Se, Me and Xp all boot perfectly but i cannot find a win95 ima that chains succesfully.

I tried using the one i am using for win98 and changing the autoexec setup.exe line to point to win95 setup but it boots the floppy and then tells me:

starting win95 setup

Please insert a win95 floppy and restart your computer.

This is my autoexec for win98

@ECHO OFF

set EXPAND=YES

SET DIRCMD=/O:N

set LglDrv=27 * 26 Z 25 Y 24 X 23 W 22 V 21 U 20 T 19 S 18 R 17 Q 16 P 15

set LglDrv=%LglDrv% O 14 N 13 M 12 L 11 K 10 J 9 I 8 H 7 G 6 F 5 E 4 D 3 C

cls

call setramd.bat %LglDrv%

set temp=c:\

set tmp=c:\

path=%RAMD%:\;a:\;%CDROM%:\

copy command.com %RAMD%:\ > NUL

set comspec=%RAMD%:\command.com

copy extract.exe %RAMD%:\ > NUL

copy readme.txt %RAMD%:\ > NUL

:ERROR

IF EXIST ebd.cab GOTO EXT

echo Please insert Windows 98 Startup Disk 2

echo.

pause

GOTO ERROR

:EXT

echo The diagnostic tools were successfully loaded to drive %RAMD%.

echo.

echo Loading...

OEMSETUP.EXE

echo.

GOTO QUIT

:QUIT

echo To get help, type HELP and press ENTER.

echo.

rem clean up environment variables

set CDROM=

set LglDrv=

This is how i changed it for Win95

@ECHO OFF

set EXPAND=YES

SET DIRCMD=/O:N

set LglDrv=27 * 26 Z 25 Y 24 X 23 W 22 V 21 U 20 T 19 S 18 R 17 Q 16 P 15

set LglDrv=%LglDrv% O 14 N 13 M 12 L 11 K 10 J 9 I 8 H 7 G 6 F 5 E 4 D 3 C

cls

call setramd.bat %LglDrv%

set temp=c:\

set tmp=c:\

path=%RAMD%:\;a:\;%CDROM%:\

copy command.com %RAMD%:\ > NUL

set comspec=%RAMD%:\command.com

copy extract.exe %RAMD%:\ > NUL

copy readme.txt %RAMD%:\ > NUL

:ERROR

IF EXIST ebd.cab GOTO EXT

echo Please insert Windows 98 Startup Disk 2

echo.

pause

GOTO ERROR

:EXT

%RAMD%:\extract /y /e /l %RAMD%: ebd.cab > NUL

echo The diagnostic tools were successfully loaded to drive %RAMD%.

echo.

LH %ramd%:\MSCDEX.EXE /D:mscd001 /L:%CDROM%

echo.

cls

echo Now installing Windows 98 SE

echo.

echo Loading...

path=%RAMD%:\;a:\;%CDROM%:\SETUP\95\WIN95\

OEMSETUP.EXE

echo.

GOTO QUIT

:QUIT

echo To get help, type HELP and press ENTER.

echo.

rem clean up environment variables

set CDROM=

set LglDrv=

If anyone can suggest how i might make it work or even supply a working image for win95 i'd be very grateful.

Thanks

Mike
