I am pxe booting to start my windows 7 network install. I know how I can set it up for it to work with one type of windows 7, but I want to split it into a folder system to allow me to install all different versions. This means I need to move where the system is searching for the BCD file.

Currently it looks in \Boot\BCD, which, when its there, works fine. But I need to host several different BCDs, so I have to change the path. I need to know what file directs the install to \Boot\BCD and how I can change it (like with a sed command).

Thanks

Translated, you are ASSUMING that there is a file where this info is hard-coded (right assumption :yes: ) AND that you can change it (wrong one :no: ).

Now, the good news are that I lied to you :w00t:
It is possible (on a particular version of BOOTMGR):
http://reboot.pro/8043/
which evolved into:
http://sites.google....and-server-2008
BUT there are better ways :thumbup :

You will need to mix (and shake well ;)) one of the two above (preferrably the second) with this:
https://sites.google...b/tutorials/pxe

It should work. :unsure:
