Hi! Discovered Easy2Boot a week ago. All .mnu entries from tutorial are working OK for me. Now I'm trying to start changing menu.lst to my own .mnu files, but I'm a newbie in grub4dos.
Will it work to just change menu.lst files to .mnu files for these 2 tutorials - 13. (OPTHCRACK) and 74. (ERDCommander).

Thanks in advance

as an example, to convert the first menu
title OphCrack 2.3.1 Password Cracker (lowram - slower for Vista/Win7 systems)

find --set-root /ophcrack_xp/boot/bzImage

kernel /ophcrack_xp/boot/bzImage rw root=/dev/null vga=normal ophcrack=lowram lang=C kmap=uk screen=1024x768x16 autologin

initrd /ophcrack_xp/boot/rootfs.gz


this becomes

iftitle [if exist  (bd)/ophcrack_xp/boot/bzImage] OphCrack 2.3.1 Password Cracker (lowram - slower for Vista/Win7 systems)

find --set-root /ophcrack_xp/boot/bzImage

kernel /ophcrack_xp/boot/bzImage rw root=/dev/null vga=normal ophcrack=lowram lang=C kmap=uk screen=1024x768x16 autologin

initrd /ophcrack_xp/boot/rootfs.gz

So just make a /mnu file and place it anywhere under /_ISO (e.g. /_ISO/Linux). But you will need to follow the Tutorial to extract the files, etc. Ophcrack is actually one of the most difficult ones to make!

For ERD, copy the winvblock.img.gz and the ISO (renamed to remove the spaces) and the .mnu file below to _ISOWindows folder....


iftitle [if exist (bd)%MFOLDER%/Windows/ERDCommander2005.iso]  ERD commander ISO via WinVblock

map (hd0) (hd1)

map (hd1) (hd0)

map --mem (bd)%MFOLDER%/Windows/winvblock.img.gz (fd0)

Thank you very much for your quick response! Just saw new entries under downloads... Both opthcrack entries are working great - just tested in QEMU :1st:
However the ERD entry is enumerated at start, but somehow not listed in my grub menu. What could I'm doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

I have requests for help creating Easy2Boot menu entries for SimplyMEPIS-1.5G_11.0.00_32.iso and gparted-live-0.11.0-2.iso

I've created a menu for gparted by searching the forum and it follows:

but, neither one works. I haven't found the problem, but I keep searching......


Also I've created menu's for Spinrite 5 & Spinrite 6. But, I can't get them to boot either.

The Original floppy's were copied with DD to create the Spinrite5.img & Spinrite6.img files.

Is it possible to get Spinrite to run?

To get the correct linux commands, open up the iso and look at the isolinux.cfg or syslinux.cfg menus.
For the spinrite images, try mapping it as a floppy (fd0) and not as a cd (0xff) and use chainloader (fd0)/kernel.sys
Search my site (grub4dos page) for a gparted 11.0 menu example - maybe check folder is _ISO and not _Iso or _iso ??
P.S. %MFOLDER%/Linux/ggparted-live-0.11.0-2.iso is this a typo???

Try this - this works for 0.12.1-5 so it may work with 11.0-2 ???

kernel /live/vmlinuz boot=live config ip=frommedia findiso=%MFOLDER%/Linux/gparted-live-0.11.0-2.iso

initrd /live/initrd.img

but, I still can't get Spinrite 5 to execute.

What am I missing or overlooking?

Steve,
Thanks for the reply. I've got the following Mepis.mnu file, and my USB files are Contiguous.
I did find a BUG in WinContig, and that is being worked.........The newer version corrects
one problem, but doesn't make my USB Contiguous...............

#kernel /mepis/boot/vmlinuz vga=788 quiet splash aufs

#initrd /mepis/boot/initrd.gz

The last two sections were what you replied.....so I inserted the correct code.
It is trying to boot, but I get an error message stating that it can't find the Mepis filesystem, and is dropping me in
a very limited shell. I've tried just about everything..............I've poured over this mnu file and the Proteus.mnu
file and from what I see, I'd think it should boot and run. But, it doesn't.

Will you have a look and make suggestions. I hate to keep bugging you but I've run out of ideas.
I've searched the grub4dos forum and this section, and even googled for a solution.

Thanks.

Larry

WinContig can only make files contiguous if there is plenty of spare space on the drive. What was the problem?
MEPIS does not work with the ISO (well, actually it half works but you need the /mepis/mepis file on the USB drive which is 1GB, so you might as well EXTRACT the ISO as I described). The file /mepis/mepis must NOT be moved to /_ISO/Linux - it must remain at /mepis.
This is one example where we cannot use %MFOLDER%.

# Copy the mepis folder to your USB drive

Steve,
In RMPrepUSB I selected:
1. MAX
2. UDISK
3. MS-DOS Bootable [IO.SYS]
4. FAT 16 & Boot as HDD (c: 2PTNS)
5. C:
6. Prepare Drve
If I selected FAT32, Prepare Drive worked.

I prepared the USB Drive, then added Grub4DOS. When everything was
copied I open the Continuous with CNTL F2 and tried to run it.
I got an error message. If I select FAT 32 it appears to work,
but not with FAT 16. No ISO or IMG files are present on the USB Image yet.
I run it again after building with Easy2Boot files.

Error message was:

Total physical memory: 789 MB
Available physical memory: 491 MB

Marco fixed that problem, but the new version didn't seem to make the files contiguious
on my fresh USB Drive so I could get Slitaz to run. If I used the previous version of
WinContig it did make my system boot Slitaz. (I had also copied Mepis-11.0.* to the 2G USB.
Nothing else was on it. I'll try it again today with the new Mepis*.mnu file.

Thanks, for the previous answer for Mepis. I'll give it a try without using %MFOLDER%.

I find it much easier to prepare all the USB payload files in a temporary folder on the hard disk, then use RMPrepUSB to reformat the drive and set the Copy Files folder to the HDD temp folder. Once the USB drive gets fragmented I just reformat/recopy with RMPrep again.
I will test out FAT16 behaviour with a 2GB partition and see what happens...

I got Mepis to boot with your menu information.

Here is my Mepis.mnu:

:: Easy2Boot .mnu file for SimplyMEPIS-1.5G_11.0.00_32.iso from http://www.mepis.org/

:: See Tutorial #72 at www.rmprepusb.com for details

:: Check MD5 value after download using RMPrepUSB + CTRL.C



:: SimplyMEPIS-1.5G_11.0.00_32.iso  (/mepis)

:: MD5	  da9dea4586d9320954f890552413b2b8   

:: SHA1  

:: CRC32



:: INSTRUCTIONS

:: 1. Download the SimplyMEPIS-1.5G_11.0.00_32.iso file

:: 2. Mount the SimplyMEPIS-1.5G_11.0.12_32.iso file

:: 3. Copy the mepis folder to a folder on your Hard Drive

:: 4. Copy the boot folder inside the /path/to/mepis folder on your Hard Drive

:: 5. Copy the /mepis folder to RMPrepUSB Flash Drive

:: 6. USB Drive folders:

:: 7. /mepis  has large mepis file

:: 8. /mepis/boot  has initrd.gz and vmlinuz

:: 9. Copy this .mnu file /_ISO/Linux folder

::10. Ensure the file is contiguous by running WinContig (RMPrepUSB Ctrl+F2)



iftitle [if exist /mepis/mepis] SimpleMEPIS Default

kernel /mepis/boot/vmlinuz vga=788 quiet splash

initrd /mepis/boot/initrd.gz



iftitle [if exist /mepis/mepis] SimpleMEPIS AUFS_rw_filesystem\nNothing is stored on the flash drive, all changes are temporary

kernel /mepis/boot/vmlinuz vga=788 quiet splash aufs

initrd /mepis/boot/initrd.gz


Is there a procedure posted for making the USB software Persistent? I see that Proteus has that capability, but that is the
only reference I have found so far. If Mepis was persistent it would be perfect.


THANKS AGAIN!

The 1st menu entry is persistent. I am not sure how it works though!

My Easy2Boot USB Flash Drive containing Subdirectories, ISO/img Files, and mnu Files.

I am sharing these that I've tested, but there could be typo's or things done better or easier. No guarantees that
the lastest versions were used, or that you won't find typo's etc, as I'm a beginner with RMPrepUSB & Easy2Boot.
I do have several years of Linux (Ubuntu 7.04++/Debian 6) under my belt.

One comment I'd like to make is that for LARGE FILES like Mepis, copy those to your Hard Drive, modify them, then copy
that LARGE modified file to your RMPrepUSB Flash Prepared Drive, and immediately run WinContig (CNTL F2) to make the
USB Flash files Contiguous. When WinContig has finished you may finish by copying all the smaller *.mnu, *.ISO, and *.img
files to the USB Flash Drive. This is especially important if you are using a 2G USB Flash Drive, as any deleted files are
stored in the .Trash subdirectory, eating up precious Space. Also, Don't start Multiple File Copies running and then Delete
some files while the copy operation is continuing to take place. Do one thing at a time until the USB is prepared.

Enjoy! Hopefully these will save everyone some time...............

Can you fill in the URL for sources and MD5/CRC32/SHA1 values pls?
If you make mnu files for each of the new ones and upload as a zip file, I will add them to my RMPrepUSB page #72 page too. :thumbsup:

Steve,
I'd be glad to, except that the option to edit a previous post disappears at some point after I've posted. I assume that
my edit session ends as soon as the next posing appears. How do I edit a previous posting?

I'm working on the NEW *.mnu files for your Posting #72

Thanks.

Larry
