YLMF is an XP like version of Linux and an ideal first 'toe-in-the-water' try of linux for Windows users.
You can choose either a non-persistent version which will not remember your settings after a reboot, or a persistent version or both!
The ISO file is the same in both cases, but the Easy2Boot .mnu file is slightly different and an extra step is needed for a persistent USB drive.

YLMF 3.0 from ISO file


HI! For some reason this won't work for me. Tried the non-persistent menu entry. Image loads into memory OK, boot initiates but then suddenly the startup screen gets scrambled. I tried to wait couple of minutes but no seem of any progress.
Can I get an advice if that's possible tweak somehow the menu entry for this ISO so that it can start in safer mode?

Can you test it using the QEMU button in RMPrepUSB. That will rule out an unsupported graphics mode in your BIOS.

Hi Guys.
Trying to boot Linux Mint 13 (Any version) The code I have is: Mint 12 works without any problems, Mint 13, using the same code, does not.

I have grub4dos ver 0.4.5c installed on my USB drive,.


title ***** Linux Mint 12

find --set-root /iso/linuxmint-12-gnome-dvd-32bit.iso

map /iso/linuxmint-12-gnome-dvd-32bit.iso (0xff)

map --hook

root (0xff)

kernel /casper/vmlinuz file=/cdrom/preseed/mint.seed boot=casper iso-scan/filename=/iso/linuxmint-12-gnome-dvd-32bit.iso quiet splash

initrd /casper/initrd.lz



title ***** TEST - Linux Mint 13 (MATE)

find --set-root /iso/linuxmint13mate32bit.iso

map /iso/linuxmint13mate32bit.iso (0xff)

map --hook

root (0xff)

kernel /casper/vmlinuz file=/cdrom/preseed/mint.seed boot=casper iso-scan/filename=/iso/linuxmint13mate32bit.iso quiet splash

initrd /casper/initrd.lz


Any help will greatly be appreciated.

Thank you.

Aylen,
From what I see of the Linux Mint 13 (Mate) Download.....the 32 Bit File name is: linuxmint-13-mate-dvd-32bit.iso || linuxmint-13-mate-dvd-64bit.iso
So, I'd recommend trying the proper file name in your menu's.

Neither work.
Well, I actually have to say that the first one was looking like starting up some way under QUEMU, but on my real system it just threw me back to busybox.
Oh, and I am also interested in the entry for a similar DebianLive entry, but that too seem not to work as I am always told that
"cannot find a live media to boot from" (and that UTF-8 is bad for FAT filesystems.... who would've imagined... ;) )

Thank you all very much, I'm halfway on my superUSB stick!

It seems that there is an issue with the 32-bit version (but apparently not a problem with the 64-bit version) - see http://forums.linuxm...p?f=46&t=103062

You are right steve6375,
I managed to have a working

title Mint zwei 64
find --set-root /linuxmint-13-mate-dvd-64bit.iso
map /linuxmint-13-mate-dvd-64bit.iso (0xff) || map --mem /linuxmint-13-mate-dvd-64bit.iso (0xff)
map --hook
root (0xff)
kernel /casper/vmlinuz file=/cdrom/preseed/mint.seed noprompt boot=casper iso-scan/filename=/linuxmint-13-mate-dvd-64bit.iso noeject noprompt --
initrd /casper/initrd.lz

Even though I have to admit that the lower bar (the one with the) didn't show up on my real system, while in QEMU fully worked. Now on to Debian live!!!

New .mnu (with supporting files - see AutoLinux.zip) available which allows you to just copy any linux ISO to the \_ISO\Linux\Auto folder and have it listed in a dynamically created menu and then run it. Most linux and DOS based ISOs will just work. Persistence is not supported (it is as if you had booted from the CD). See  Tutorial #72 on my site for the download and a list of over 30 tested ISOs. Windows ISOs may or may not work (if they look for a folder on the original boot media after they have booted they won't work properly).

 

 

 

:: Easy2Boot .mnu file for ANY linux ISO
:: See Tutorial #96 and #72 at www.rmprepusb.com for details
:: Check MD5 value after download using RMPrepUSB + CTRL.C
:: INSTRUCTIONS
:: 1. Download any linux LIVE CD ISO file
:: 2. Copy this .mnu file plus included files in \grub folder to your USB drive
:: 3. Copy all of your linux ISOs file to \_ISO\Linux\Auto folder


#As this method relies on a blank, unused 4th entry in the boot drive's partition table, you should add these lines to the top of your main menu.lst file to check that it is safe to use:
iftitle [if exist /grub/autolinuxmenu.bat] LINUX ISOs\nRun any linux ISO
debug off
checkrange 20120114:-1 read 0x8278 || echo WRONG VERSION OF GRLDR (grub4d0s)!!!! && pause
# make empty table entry in 4th position in ptn table
debug on
parttype (hd0,3) | set check=
debug off
set check=%check:~-5,4%
if "%check%"=="0x00" partnew (hd0,3) 0 0 0
set LBACKMENU=(bd)/grub/menu.lst
if not "%check%"=="0x00" echo ERROR: PTN TABLE 4 IS ALREADY IN USE ON USB DRIVE! && pause && configfile %LBACKMENU%
/grub/autolinuxmenu.bat .automenu /_ISO/Linux/Auto

Tutorial 6 8 is on my site...
 
Mount the ISO and copy the NBRTSTRT.exe file and the two folders under the \Sources folder (i.e. the two folders DRIVERS and SYMANTEC_NBRT)
Copy ISO to \_ISO\Utility folder
 
.mnu file
#Norton Bootable Recovery Disk
#The ISO is WinPE 3 based. To make it work, it needs to find the NBRTSTRT.exe file in the root of the drive
#and also you need to copy two folders from inside the ISO to your USB drive, so as well as the ISO file on your USb drive you need:
#\NBRTSTRT.exe
#\Sources\DRIVERS
#\Sources\SYMANTEC_NBRT
#
iftitle [if exist %MFOLDER%/Utility/NBRT.iso] Symantec Rescue CD
map  %MFOLDER%/Utility/NBRT.iso (0xff)
map --hook
chainloader (0xff)

Hi, Steve

 

Thank you for the prompt response.  I assume you meant Tutorial 8, which deals with Symantec Ghost, which I reviewed prior to asking for yyour help, and not the video tutorials of Tutorial 6. 

 

My question was in reference to Symantec System Recovery 2011, not Ghost, which has a different file structure.  There is a Sources folder but it only contains a compressed file named BOOT.WIN, not the two folders you describe, nor are those two folders within the BOOT.WIN file.  Also, there is no NBRTSTRT.exe to be found on the CD.  I would attach the CD ISO for your review but it is over 600M in size and at my pathetic upload speeds it would take half a year to reach you.   If you have access to a Symantec System Recovery 2011 CD, I would greatly appreciate your input.  If not, I appreciate your effort anyway and congratulate you on a wonderful product.

 

As I have your attention, I will submit another question, if I may.  What is the grub code to make any Linux ISO permanent, for example a linux Mint 14 x64 distribution, where should it be inserted on the mnu file and does it require an ext2 file the same way as you describe in the proteus tutorial?

 

Thanking you in advance,

 

George

Hi

Can you list the files in the ISO of the Symantec System Recovery 2011 - especially what boot files it has (ntldr, bootmgr or maybe grldr).

The first step would be to extract ALL the files from the ISO and place them onto a USB drive, and then try a grub4dos menu to chainload the boot file (e.g. chainloader /ntldr) - these commands can be tested from the grub4dos console by typing them in.

 

re. Mint - I don't think you can use the 'partnew auto-linux' menu for a persistent bootable UFD. You could try it by using RMPrepUSB to create a 100MB ext2 filesystem (casper-rw)  and see if you get persistence. If not, you can try a grub4dos menu that mounts the ISO as (0xff). I would have to experiment and will get back to you. It will probably be similar to Tut #46.

 

(yes, I meant Tut 8!)

hi, Steve

 

The file system as a copy paste into the Reply window exceeds the allowable length.  Is there a way that I can´t find in the provided Reply options to attach it as a txt file or to email it to you?

 

I will try your Linux permanence suggestion shortly and give you an update.

 

Again, thank you for all your help,

 

George

Hi, again (part 2, Linux Mint 14 x64)

 

Here is the grub entry I tried, which fails during boot at (initramfs), where it stops and hangs forever.

 

iftitle [if exist /_ISO/Linux/LinuxMint.iso] LinuxMint Graphics mode Persistent \nRun LinuxMint the best way we can. Try to autoconfigure graphics card and use the maximum allowed resolution.\nUse /casper-rw as changes filesystem.
map /_ISO/linux/LinuxMint.iso (0xff) || map --mem /_ISO/linux/LinuxMint.iso (0xff)
map --hook
chainloader (0xff)
root (0xff)
kernel /casper/vmlinuz from_iso=/_ISO/Linux/LinuxMint.iso vga=791 changes=/casper-rw
initrd /casper/initrd.lz

 

I hope this helps. 

 

George

Update on Symantec System Recovery

 

Alright, I must apologize for wasting your time on this one.  The problem was the PC specific nature of the ISO, as I was testing it with RMPresUSP and on a laptop different from where the ISO was generated.  The following worked perfect on the PC that the ISO belongs to:

 

iftitle [if exist /_ISO/Windows/SymantecRecovery.iso] SymantecRecovery (Windows Util) Non-Persistent\nThis OS boots directly from the ISO file at /_ISO/Windows/SymantecRecovery.iso\nISO file must be contiguous

find --set-root  /_ISO/Windows/SymantecRecovery.iso

map  /_ISO/Windows/SymantecRecovery.iso (0xff)

map --hook

root (0xff)

chainloader /bootmgr

 

Well, as tends to be the case with these quests, at least I learned something, which I would like to share with those of your readers who might be as inexperienced as myself: how to print directory lists from windows without added software.  Type at the command prompt the following:

 

dir > print.txt

 

The above command will take the list of all the files and all of the information about the files, including size, modified date, etc., and send that output to the print.txt file in the current directory.

 

dir /b > print.txt

 

This command would print only the file names and not the file information of the files in the current directory.

 

dir /s /b > print.txt

 

This command would print only the file names of the files in the current directory and any other files in the directories in the current directory.

 

 

 

The linux issue remains (permanece), if you have time to address that, which I am sure many of your readers will find useful, as Proteus is quite limited and the YLMF linux distribution is not listed by any of the major linux trackers, and probably wise to stay away from this Chinese distribution if the linux “gurus” don´t list it...

 

Thanking you in advance,

 

George

It is possible that it only worked on the original PC because that PC hard disk contains files which it looks for - or you left the Recovery CD in, which it looks for during boot!

Did you extract the ISO files to the USB drive and try it on the non-working system?

 

Can you describe the symptoms of the Rescue problem if this does not work.

 

re. Mint - I have the 32-bit working, booting from ISO with persistence (and the casper-rw file can be in any folder). Will write an RMPrepUSB tutorial for it and maybe a easy2boot one too...

The Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon  boot from ISO tutorial is now here. I tested both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions. There is no  Easy2Boot menu yet - I will work on this later...

cheers
