I am trying to boot a Windows Vista/7 RE from an isolinux cd. I cannot get isolinux to boot to the bootmgr. I have tried using a *.bss file as a kernel, but I get an invalid kernel message on select. Now I'm trying to use the com32 module chain.c32 with no success. Part of my menu looks like this :

label winpe
menu label Windows Vista/7 RE
COM32 /sources/chain.c32
append boot ntldr=/sources/wvre/bootmgr

When I boot to the cd and select this option from the menu, my computer immediately crashes and turns off.

Any help appreciated.

You could have searched the forum: http://www.msfn.org/...inux-windows-7/, this topic might answer exactly your problem.

That could work, but I'm wanting more than one pe image on the disc. This way, I would have to go through the isolinux menu, and only have one item on it for any number of pe images. Then I would have to use another menu with bootmgr. I'm trying to avoid more than one menu by having all the images on the disk listed in the same place (isolinux).

What would this do?

label PE1 
BOOT /folder1/boot/etfsboot.com

label PE2 
BOOT /folder2/boot/etfsboot.com

There are some paths and filenames that are hardcoded.
You simply cannot do "what you want".

See here:
http://reboot.pro/8043/
but there are however ways, though not *exactly* what you asked for one of these may fit (or however give you a hint in the "right" direction):
http://sites.google....and-server-2008
http://sites.google..../multi_boot-wim
http://sites.google....utorials/winiso
http://sites.google....iskautounattend
(first one is the "evolution" of the method involving different BCD's)

The easiest, as said on the other thread, is using .iso mapping, nowadays memdisk can also map .iso's, see here:
http://reboot.pro/8258/

Another possible approach :unsure::

tripredacus,

This generates an error stating
CDBOOT: Couldn't find BOOTMGR
I thought if I appended the bootmgr location to it, it would fix it, but it still shows the same error.

I have decided to just use an iso of the pe images.
Thanks for the help guys.

Things seem to get messy when you mix Linux with Windows. I've had a little experience with it, but so far I can use PXELinux to boot to WDS or (start) to install an OS sitting on IIS website... And the syntax for it was different than your example.
