attach a zip or post a link with the file, containing....
txtsetup.sif, setupldr.bin, and pro1.dat

I don't need ANY CDSHELL files as it's not related to CDSHELL. I'll go through and check that everything is correct.

You are editing the files in your PRO1 folder and not your Install source folder correct?

yes. SETUPLDR.BIN , PRO1.DAT (or what ever boot sector is causing you problem) , TXTSETUP.SIF

Also be sure you have deleted, BOOTSECT.DAT and migrate.inf from your boot folder.

Code 5 can also occur when the CD's boot sector is corrupted. Make sure that you use a proper boot file (One is available here.) and make sure if you're using Nero that you set

Emulation: None.
Load Segment of Sectors: 07C0
Number of Loaded Sectors: 4

If you still have no success, then perhaps your CD-R Media may be to blame. Poor quality CD media tends to have difficulty with their boot sectors. It's not always the case, but it's been known to happen, which would cause your Code 5 error.

hehe nope thats true :)

the only problem I've ever had with making the discs was the infamous ASMS error. That for me atleast was bad media. One more burn and it was fixed.

My bestfriend just called me. He can't install XP on his computer because he gets a

"Cannot boot from CD - Code 4"

Which seems to be related to BIOS according to Windows Magazine...

Poor guy. :}

Hi i too had the same problem with error code 5, and too followed the guide.

In the guide its says to Replace I386 with PRO1 for example with hex editor, you will get the error if you just backspace i386 and type in PRO1.

Instead of backspacing fill i386 with zero's first then type in PRO1 then save.

After i did it like that no error and is all good.

hope this helps :)

Did you do what FFA did and delete the for letters and then started typing? If so, that's wrong. Should just click where you want to start changing and type.

why not just follow what flyakite's multi-boot DVD guide says?

He says:

in your PRO1 directory open up the file in your Hex-editor.
Under Edit -> Replace (Ctrl+H) search for Type: "Text String."
We want to find i386 and replace it with PRO1.

Click OK and then choose Replace All.
It should say "x Occurrences Replaced."

When done, save the file

NOTE: I modified the quote slightly to make the instructions more generic.


So that is all there really is - in other words, don't try manually editing at all - simply give the task to the "Find and Replace" function.
