Hello I have created an USB Boot stick with BootX

I have inserted HP Firmware DVD iso files and SmartStart CD iso files.
I can boot the iso files it shows the HP logo but jumps to the prompt.

What could be the problem.

Here is the menu i use for the iso files :


MENU TITLE HP Tools
INCLUDE /boot/syslinux/theme.cfg
INCLUDE /boot/syslinux/mainmenu.cfg


### MENU START
LABEL -
MENU LABEL HP Firmware DVD 8.00

Trying to boot the whole ISO. Once the linux kernel is booted, it can't find the files inside the ISO because it doesn't look for it (assuming that those ISOs use a linux kernel).

You probably need to extract it.
  • List all the files inside the ISOs.
  • List the content of the isolinux.cfg file of the ISOs.

Here is the content of the fw930 iso file:
u:\images\fw930.iso\_autorun\



 

u:\images\fw930.iso\addon\

u:\images\fw930.iso\boot.images\

u:\images\fw930.iso\compaq\

u:\images\fw930.iso\hp\

u:\images\fw930.iso\system\

u:\images\fw930.iso\usb\

u:\images\fw930.iso\xml\

u:\images\fw930.iso\autorun

u:\images\fw930.iso\autorun.cmd

u:\images\fw930.iso\autorun.inf


I have found a syslinux.cfg file in the usb dir:
#CHECK_SERVER blacklist

Hi,

I have been testing further with this. I have made the following entry :

### MENU START
label -
MENU LABEL SmartStart 8.70 x86
kernel /images/hpssx86/hpboot_v.c32
append /images/hpssx86/vmlinuz initrd=images/hpssx86/initrd.img media=usb: rw root=/dev/ram0 ramdisk_size=407356 init=/bin/init loglevel=3 ide=nodma ide=noraid nopat pnpbios=off vga=791 noexec32=off nox2apic splash=silent showopts
### MENU END

When I try to start it I get an error that hpboot_v.c32 not a valid com32r image is. How can i resolve this ?
