A dynamic run-time boot menu for Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista/7 detected on internal HDD.


Layout of files on USB


/NTBOOT

/grldr

/menu.lst

/osdetect.lst



This is the menu.lst


#menu.lst

title auto-scan and boot

find --set-root /osdetect.lst

configfile /osdetect.lst



And this is the menu generator for our run-time OS boot menu


#osdetect.lst

color	11 12 13 14

default  0

set	  thismenu=/osdetect.lst

set	  prevmenu=/menu.lst

set	  NTBOOT=/NTBOOT/NTBOOT

set	  usb_hdd?=checkrange 0x80 read 0x8280

set	  xp=Windows NT/2000/XP

set	  w7=Windows Vista/7

set	  help1=n bootmgr and correct bcd are required on hdd.

set	  help2=n ntldr and correct boot.ini are required on hdd.

set	  help3=n Neither bootmgr or correct bcd is required.

set	  help4=n Neither ntldr or correct boot.ini is required.



echo Loading dynamic os boot menu...



map	  --unhook

map	  --unmap=0:0xff

find	 --set-root %thismenu%

map	  --mem %thismenu% (hd60)

map	  --hook

set	  i=(hd60)+1

set	  o=(md)800+50

Nice, now I'm trying to get the last real hd[X+1] number... and I'm having difficulty:



I hope some of U will be able to help me with an unusual request / question:
The thing is, that I'm trying to get the next available free hdX (X should be the next free hd device number) so that I can map a new HD disk image.

ex: if I map hd0, then after boot the real hd0 will be invisible (I will see the image instead), ig I map as hd8 or any other higher number then the real existing hdX+1 then it will not be mapped.
If I have 2 HDD's I will have hd0, hd1... if I map the image as hd2 it will be OK, but in different systems I have different number of real HDD's... so I'm trying to find the number X from hdX, where the X is the real existing HDD number (in the second example: 2)

so.. I'm curious and I cannot get around how to obtain a string like "hd3" witch would be the next free hd witch can be mapped...

Thank U anticipated 4 U're help :)

steve6375 gave me the best solution in the Grub4dos Guide/Tutorial (pg4)

Thank U for the help :)


this was the magic part, that I could not get around: set/a hdn=*0x475&0xff
so now it is ok (and it is workin' as it follows):

title Map as a new HD from test.ima
set /a hdn=*0x475 & 0xff
map --mem (pd)/test.ima (hd%hdn%)
map --hook

Thank U again :)

You may simply use the device (hd) for that. i.e., for hdn=*0x475&0xff

And (hd-1) is for the last available HD, i.e., for hdn=(*0x475-1)&0xff

similarly (hd-2) is corresponding to hdn=(*0x475-2)&0xff

similarly (hd-3) is corresponding to hdn=(*0x475-3)&0xff

and so on.
