[Completed] Custom Made Boot Menu

49 posts in this topic

Hey All :hello:

I Made A Custom Boot Menu (With Easy Boot 5) I Think Some People Would Be Interested In, Its For Windows XP (But Could Work For 2000 / 2003 with modification)

It Has A Standard Install And An Automated Install Menu Button Which Launches An Automated Install From the I386

directory right where the standard setup is too (no need for 2 directories anymore :P ), ive included the hacked setup1dr.bin in the archive which calls AUTOI.SIF instead of winnt.sif :D (to make your setupldr.bin load AUTOI.SIF simply open up a hexor editor search and replace text string WINNT.SIF with AUTOI.SIF and also replace winnt.sif lower case strings too)

It Has A Progress Bar At The Bottom And A Ten Second Timer Which Automatically Boot From Hard Disk

Here It Is

To Get It To Work You Need To Set The loader.bin in the ezboot folder as the boot file

Me 2. i just made this basic one for anyone who wanted it

i can easily make one for all but that would specifically require the user to put all the required oses in a certian directory (unless they modified the bootfile)

Hey,

I've created a graphical boot menu with the program CD SHell.

All Layer info is included so all files are fully editable.

These files and other modded multiboot-files of 5128 can be found at http://bhs.gwmfiles.com/index.php?page=downloads

I am using cdshell for this bootmenu

yeah sure,,

when you download my bootmenu:

you got to do this:

1) edit the .PNG graphic files and save them as 24-bit BMP

or just save them as 24-bit BMP

2) run 'BMP2csi.cmd'

3) place the output files in the cdshell folder in your AIODVD.

AIODVD

>Boot\

>>loader.bin (set a bootimage)

>>Cdshell.ini

>>graphics\ (put .csi here)

>Setup\

>OEM\

just a quick Q (probably dumb one lol)

this is for a grafical dos bot menu right????

will it in that case also support a 2.1gb mutiboot CD (not dvd),

like for example MS uses for 'is cdroms

*note: you can fit virtual 2gb of installers in an 800mb cdrom, if you normalie would have 3 win2k3 versions and burn a single file only to 1 location if it normal would have been added 3times).

so now i ask if this boot manu also works on those kinds of cd's / dvd's

@-I-

The best way is to find it out by yourself :} Though I've never had issues with my CDShell boot menu, what kind of iso format i was using...

@Gen.Alexander

Which two fonts and which 2 plugins? For the Fonts you might wanna take a look here www.1001freefonts.com, that;s the place where I always search for new ones, so they might come from this site. For the plugins, I think you mean my AlienSkin Plugin, you have to buy you own, or search on the internet for yourself.

of course,

these menu and toolz will come on handy in any operation.

Especially recovery console on a automated XP,,

partition magic, windows 98 bootable, ghost, antivirus tools, are the tools to talk abt few..

How difficult is it to put 2 different OSes requiring I386 folders in the root under EZBoot? Do you think it is worth the effort?

for dual boot,, it is not concerned with ezboot,, ezboot is just for multiboot,,

for multiboot requiring same i386, u need to go through multiboot CD/ DVD guide by gosh. u need to hack some files to change the folder structure. some of them are boot.bin(boot sector), txtsetup.sif, setupldr.bin
