Is anyone having BOOTMGR issues with Syslinux 4.01?
I am doing the following to chainload it:
LABEL - MENU LABEL BOOTMGR COM32 /boot/syslinux/chain.c32 APPEND boot ntldr=/BOOTMGR
My file directory looks like so:
| | BCD
| | boot.sdi
| | bootsect.exe
| | ETFSBOOT.COM
| | memtest.exe
| | bootsect.exe.mui
| | chs_boot.ttf
| | cht_boot.ttf
| | jpn_boot.ttf
| | kor_boot.ttf
| | wgl4_boot.ttf
| | isolinux.bin
| | isolinux.cfg
| | bcd
Its seems BOOTMGR chainloads normally but then it conks out and gives an error:
Info: An error occured while attempting to read the boot configuration data.
If I format the drive to just FAT32 and transfer files to the usb drive (so we are using FAT32's inherent programming telling it to boot NTLDR or BOOTMGR) the drive boots successfully (get a listing of available options from the BCD store). I have several different BCD files and I have even tried copied everything from a working syslinux 3.8x USB stick that has BOOTMGR loading however it still doesnt seem to work.
I have tested on a Lenovo W500 and Dell E4300 with same result. I am using Windows 7 RTM to build the stick. I have tried a few sources of the BOOTMGR/etc files and not much luck yet...
Anyone have BOOTMGR issues with syslinux 4.01? The chainloading seems fine but I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on why its having a hard time accessing the boot configuration data...
