Has by any chance some magic happened and your USB stick has become a (unattended) Multiboot CD/DVD? :w00t:

You are here:

MSFN Forum

> Unattended Windows Discussion & Support

> Multi-Boot CD/DVDs

Probably you wanted to be here:

http://www.msfn.org/board/forum/157-install-windows-from-usb/

In any case among the file you posted there are two settings files:

  1. menu.lst
  2. winsetup.lst

Leave menu.lst alone for the moment, it simply loads winsetup.lst.

Open winsetup.lst in notepad.

Save it to winsetup2.lst.

Open winsetup.lst again.

Save it to winsetup3.lst.

Change all occurrences of winsetup.lst in file winsetup2.lst. to winsetup2.lst.

Change all occurrences of winsetup.lst in file winsetup3.lst. to winsetup3.lst.

Delete from winsetup2.lst the two menu entries related to XP SP3.

Delete from winsetup3.lst the two menu entries related to XP SP2.

Now open menu.lst and replace:

title Windows XP Setups

map --unmap=0:0xff

map --unhook && map --rehook

savedefault

ls /usbdrive.tag > nul || find --set-root --devices=hf /usbdrive.tag > nul

configfile /winsetup.lst

With:

title Windows Xp Professional Sp2 Setup

map --unmap=0:0xff

map --unhook && map --rehook

savedefault

ls /usbdrive.tag > nul || find --set-root --devices=hf /usbdrive.tag > nul

configfile /winsetup2.lst

title Windows Xp Professional Sp3 Setup

map --unmap=0:0xff

map --unhook && map --rehook

savedefault

ls /usbdrive.tag > nul || find --set-root --devices=hf /usbdrive.tag > nul

configfile /winsetup3.lst

It is a simple text based set of menues, you may want to learn something about grub4dos reading here:

http://diddy.boot-land.net/grub4dos/Grub4dos.htm

The above is simply changing the target of the configfile command:

without changing any of the actula "booting related" commands.
