Erd Commander 2003 Multi-boot Problem.

4 posts in this topic

Numinous, I have a feeling you know the answer to this, although if anyone knows I'd definitely appreciate the help.

I've got a multi-boot DVD with:

2000 Pro

2000 Advanced

ME

98 SE

XP Pro

XP Home

Server 2003 Standard

Server 2003 Enterprise

Server 2003 Web

and now I want to add ERD Commander 2003. Whenever I test it in Virtual PC, I get a blue screen saying something along the lines of:

Cannot load the hive file

systemroot\system32\config\default

The file is invalid, corrupt, or missing.

My ERD Commander 2003 iso file has 3 folders:

Documents and Settings

i386

Tools

The 'Documents and Settings' folder has subfolders in it, but all are empty. The tools folder contains some miscellaneous apps that I can move within the i386 folder if needed, but that's it. I can't figure out why this is happening. Once I get this fixed, my DVD will finally be finished.

How should the folder structure for ERD be setup, and does anything other than setupldr.bin and the .dat file in the DVD root need to be edited? Do I need to edit txtsetup.sif?

Thanks in advance.

If I recall when creating a multiboot CD/DVD anything that you want to boot off the CD/DVD and load into RAM must be run from a .img source file on your CD/DVD

I don't think that's quite right. The thread gosh had about putting WinPE and XP on the same cd didn't require anything like that. Plus, ERD Commander 2003 iso I have loads perfectly fine on it's own, I just can't get it to work correctly when adding the files to my DVD and editing the .bin files and whatever.

lol, what the heck. Seriously, sometimes I don't understand why things go wrong with my DVD. So I tried again, and it seemed like I was taking the same route I had taken before, and lo and behold it works. This same thing happened when dealing with my Windows 98 SE .ima file.

Anyway, problem solved. Now I finally have my 10 OS mutli-boot DVD working properly. Phew.
