Adding Win95 to multiboot DVD

1 post in this topic

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

%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\98SE\WIN98\

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
