Windows XP + Hiren's BootCD + Windows 7

You will need the following:

Windows XP CD or ISO
Hiren's BootCD or ISO
USB_Multiboot_10.zip
Grub4dos.rar
Windows 7 CD or ISO

Unpack USB Multiboot 10. After that put your XP disc into your CD drive or mount using powerISO or daemon

Go into the folder that you just unpacked the program to and click the file: USB_MultiBoot_10.cmd:

Press any key to continue...

Since we are using a 4g Flash drive it will need to be formatted so the XP files can be copied to it.

When ready type in "H" and press "ENTER" (note: all files will be lost on flash drive!)

im using 4 gb Flash Drive so i wil format it using HP USB Disk Format Tool

Make sure that your USB drive is in the "Destination Drive"at the top.

You must also name the usb drive label (it will probably already be named, that is fine).

If you follow the settings that I have above in the picture you should be good to go.

Click "Start"

Answer yes to the question

When it finishes click the "Close" button and you will be taken to this window:

Posted Image

- Type in "1" then press "enter" and choose the place where WinXP is (probably your CD drive)

Posted Image

- Type in "2" then press "enter" and choose the place where your flash drive is located.

Posted Image

- Type in "3" and press "enter" and the XP files will be copied to the usb drive. Answer yes to any questions that follow.

While the files are being written to the usb drive eventually one screen will pop up asking you to choose:

Posted Image

*A. Unattended Install - UserName = YourName
in winnt.sif file - unattendswitch="Yes" - UserName is used Automatically
useraccounts.cmd with UserName is created in $OEM$ Folder copied to USB-drive

(Selecting Unattended Install in the Editor instead of Cancel will enable you to skip the Welcome Screens by filling in the information right now.)

*B. Semi-Unattended Install - UserName = None
in winnt.sif file - unattendswitch="No" - UserNames are given Manually at Windows Welcome Screens
useraccounts.cmd is Renamed to Inactive txt file in $OEM$ Folder copied to USB-drive

*C. Cancel - In all cases Selecting Cancel keeps given Settings for winnt.sif file and $OEM$ folder Unchanged

If you'd just rather fill in the information during the actual install of WinXP on your PC it's the same exact thing as choosing Unattended Install, Unattended Install just allows you to fill in the information now instead of later.

Thank you for the tutorial but please do keep in mind that Hiren distributes an already built windows image without proper authorization from Microsoft.

Boot Land likes to see new tutorials but allowing hiren to be distributed from our site is a problem since it would give reason to others point boot land as a warez site.

Please remove the links to hiren. In alternative, please consider trying out LiveXP which is also a free project and perfectly legal to use.

My apologies, hope you can understand that we need to keep the board safe for everyone.

:dubbio:

Hi again Trismund,

Don't worry. I've just removed the link but kept the reference so that your tutorial is not broken.

You can't edit the post because you're a "new" member. We have this restriction to prevent spammers from changing their forum posts after a while. In either case, if you keep publishing good tutorials all restrictions are removed.

-------

Since you're advising people to use a windows 7 ISO, why not also using a boot disk project that uses win7 as source?

There are plenty of those around boot land, look here: http://www.boot-land...hp?showforum=91

All legal and developed in-house. This mean you can ask questions and the respective developers will also appreciate the fact that you're helping people using these projects.

---

Perhaps you can create a new tutorial, explaining how to use some of these projects?

:dubbio:
