I'm currently gathering information to update the guide. One feature I recently decided to include is USB drive support. Like it? :)

I like it a lot --- I used the version of this guide pre XPSP3 with great success --- and USB (> 4.7GB) support would be a godsend. I have an old BartPE XPe USB working, but have never been able to install a new OS from the XPe environment. Granted, in that realm, I had to format it to FAT in order to get everything working, but that goes back to 2007 or so.

PM me if there's anything you want help w/ or want me to test.

Hei grabben it's normal that you feel its confusing at first, specially if you are new at this.
I sugest you read it all once or twice (complete timeline explanation at the end) and once you understand it, start working on it.

This guide has many small steps and if you make a mistake in one, everything's screwed up. The text is small due to a forum update and I kinda liked it. Keeps things in perspective and reduces the changes of you skipping a step.
I'm trying to get the next guide update as small as possible, but I think I'm gonna need to program some stuff myself to cut some steps down. Windows Vista is tricky as hell :(

Thanks Andregcasal for reply.

Yea well i read a few times.. i just lack motivation/whatever you want to call it for doing things like this but im trying to :)
Ive read the guide few times but still seems like a mess to me but one more time.


Vista? Hm what updates can we be expecting?

Well, I'm trying to add Windows Vista and Windows 7 into this guide, but that would completely change the way the DVD is booted and would take alot of steps to do it.
So I'm trying to figure out a way to make things simple. And I'm trying to cut ALOT of steps down without taking adaptability out.

It's to be expected a easy-to-follow version of a Multi-boot Guide with 98, XP, Vista, 7, Linux and Mac OS (not sure yet) compatibility with unnattended, streamlined software, driver packs and USB pen drive support.
And some minor things I forgot to mention :)

That'll be tough work if you want Windows, linux and mac all together but it should be doable :P.

Simple:
- Make an image of the original DVD
- Copy that image to another DVD

You find tones of programs to do that on the internet. Althougth this is not the place to ask questions like that...

It's just one of the board updates that made links invalid.

That's entirely up to how long it will take me to find some key files inside Window 7 installation. I can't provide any ETA at this moment :)
Just expect the worst and hope for the best ;)

CDshell is not supported since 2005. In addition web page is down.
Time to use another boot loader?

Definitely. Althougth it doesn't change anything when using other bootloaders. Just make them point to the same xxxx.dat file.
By the way, what good boot loaders are you guys using nowadays?

Cheers ;)

Yes, this works.

By the way, what good boot loaders are you guys using nowadays?

I'm used to grub4dos, read original setupldr.bin and edit setupldr.bin in RAM. No need to hex edit a file at build time.

Compare post http://www.msfn.org/...post__p__893774

And to use three boot files only

\XHO1\NTDETECT.COM
\XHO1\SETUPLDR.BIN
\XHO1\TXTSETUP.SIF

Edit txtsetup.sif, adjust SetupSourcePath and create BootPath:
[SetupData]
SetupSourcePath = "\XHO1\"
BootPath = \XHO1\I386\
