i have controlled and readed the guide, but i not understand much..

i have done this:

1) copied all i386 dir of XPPRO SP3 and subdir in c:\WXPP

2) i have extracted Boot image with ISOMAGIC

3) i have edited setup setupldr.bin and change all 4 i386 in WXPP

4) i have edited txtsetup.sif and substitute \i386 in \WXPP in x86 session

5) i have edited boot image and change i386 in WXPP

6) i make ISO with WXPP dir, boot image modified, and in root files WIN51*. and WIN51IP.SP1,SP2,SP3

now all function OK, but at first reboot ask me SP3 CD and in path giveme D:\i386.

if i try to make CD SP2, ask me for SP2 CD. same problem.

thank a lot for answer,

but i not found solution for my problem....

all is ok, but at restart (after boot and copyinf file), now Windows search file in D:\I386 instead \WXPP

what is wrong??

i modified setupldr.bin and txtsetup.sif

what must modify for do search folder \WXPP

i think that must modify in txtsetup.sif line where is sourcepath, but if i modify installation block at init.

thank

p.s. - i've already read all guides mentioned, but i not see whitch i wrong

i have read the guide of http://flyakite.msfn.org/xpprosp1.htm

but in this guide there are 2 directory for os.

i want only a dir and name it how i want

i386 to WXPP for XP Pro

i386 to W2KP for 2000 pro

...

...

now through the guides that i found in this and other forum i can make boot correctly...

but the problem is when reboot...

the cd boot correctly

the copy of file is correct

but now in restart, popup request for cd in d:\i386...

if i search manually for file to d:\wxpp is ok.

now the question is: how make for search for default in d:\WXPP ??

n.b.

txtsetup.sif and setupldr.bin are been edited

i thing that problem is line sourcepath in txtsetup.sif. (but if modify, setup not function)

i searched in all file in c for find other i386 occurrence, but nothing

help me please

thank

Ah ha! I've solved the mystery!

If you read the guide to EasyBoot it says...

1) Make a folder named 'xpen' under 'c:\easyboot\disk1'

2) Copy 'win51' and 'win51p' (from root directory of original CD) to 'c:\easyboot\disk1'

3) Copy I386 folder to 'c:\easyboot\disk1\xpen'

Where really it should say copy win51, win51p etc into both disk1 and xpen :)

Yeah, it's just a strange problem. I guess there'll have to be more editing, including throwing things into different folders.

Hi Spike4real,

Took your idea - i tried your steps using Magic Iso Maker but no success. here are the descriptions: copied Win51 , Win51p, and WIN51IP to the root folder and also to IWXP folder (i386 copied from Installation cd, renamed as IWXP located in the root folder of Magic Iso Maker. do you have any suggestion ? thanks alot in advance.

I understand this post has been a while, but i'm hope someone could contribute to my unsuccessful Multi-Boot with MagicISO in the making.

Ok, I found this tutorial here: http://www.magiciso.com/tutorials/miso-cre...multi-os-cd.htm

According to this information they only show how to edit Win98, Win2K and WinXP 32bit. I have a few of WinXP 64bit discs that I would like to compress it into one neat DVD instead.

WinXP 32bit has a folder called: i386

-However-

WinXP 64bit has both i386 and AMD64, the differences not eded there.

In 32bit both SETUPLDR.BIN and TXTSETUP.SIF within i386 folder and 64Bit version it has SETUPLDR.BIN in i386 and TXTSETUP.SIF in AMD64

So i guess my question is how to compile a MULTI-BOOT-DVD Windows XP's 64bit with MagicISO

Windows XP 32bits *.SIF file is to edit [sourceDisksNames.x86] but in 64Bit it has another section called [sourceDisksNames.amd64]

Any feedback will be much appriciated.
