I'm trying to a bootable usb with ntfs + grub4dos + windows 7 pe + hirencd.

I formatted usb with ntfs, and changed mbr with "grubinst_gui".
I copied "grldr.mbr", "grldr", ad "default" from grub4dos-0.4.5b.

And from windows 7 pe, I copied every files and folders to "%usb%/win7pe/". Then I wrote "menu.lst" like this.

title 1. WinPE Tool \n
find --set-root /win7pe/BOOTMGR
chainloader /win7pe/BOOTMGR

And the result is here.

Hi,

I didn't try to do what you are trying to do but i know that the BCD needs to be on a folder called Boot located at the root folder of the drive like the error above show. The Boot folder reference is hard coded on several files.

Why don't you just drop WinPE ISO onto the Thumb and boot it from the ISO with Grub4DOS?

I have also got a boot problem with GRUB4DOS - I have no clue how it happened, but my single partitioned laptop(Windows 7 64bit) has the following boot error message:

Booting 'Windows Vista'
acpi
Vista Loader 2.1.2
Done!
fallback 1
find --set-root /bootmgr

Error 17: File not found
Booting 'Windows NT/2000/XP'

fallback 2
find --set-root /ntldr

Error 17: File not found
Booting 'Enter Command Line'

Boot failed! Press any key to enter command line.


- All very curious, I HAVE TRIED TO FOLLOW SOME OF THE EXISTING SCRIPTS/FORUMS ON "REBOOT" - but I get a few different replies while trying to solve the problem with GRUB4DOS.

When I type in the command line.

grub> root (
[TAB]
Possible disks are: hd0 rd cd

> root (hd0,0)
[ENTER]
Filesystem type is ntfs, partition type 0x7

> find /
[TAB]
Error 2: Bad file or directory type

CAN ANYONE PLEASE CORRECT ME AND/OR GUIDE ME THROUGH THE REST OF THE STEPS I SHOULD FOLLOW TO BOOT MY LAPTOP INTO WINDOWS? I AM NOT EXPERIENCED WITH GRUB, THIS IS A FIRST, DON'T EVEN KNOW WHY IT'S ON MY LAPTOP...I AM ALSO NEW TO FORUMS - THE POSTING - PLEASE EXCUSE ME IF I AM FOLLOWING THE INCORRECT PROTOCOL AS THIS IS ALSO A FIRST.

Hmmm. :dubbio:

Read these two:

DO NOT use WAREZ.
ONLY use CAPITALS when really needed, it looks like you are shouting at us! :w00t:
