Introduction, looking for direction
Posted 25 May 2012 - 08:19 PM
Been looking around for a few days, decided to make a post. I have an idea for a project I'd like to work on. Essentially a multiboot disk for utilities like memtest, seatools, acronis, minixp etc. What I really want to do is develop a program to run automated scans, one after the other after choosing which, then collect the log files and output the results. Been trying to figure out which route i should go. Anyone have any thoughts? Or maybe there's a similar project I havent stumbled on yet.
Anyways, just saying hi >.>

For example, Are you thinking of putting in a CD/DVD/USB, and booting the machine to run a set of tests? If so, then would it run all of them all the time, or would it need some sort of uber-control like environment? If so, how would it know how long to let a test like memtest continue, since it needs to be interrupted? Similar for other tests that might need some sort of keyboard input to cycle through the available drives, etc.
If (on the other hand), you are just looking for a framework to collect them all in one place so you can select the tool when the machine is booted, there are tools and tips for making a "multi-boot" environment using grub4dos or other "front-ends"...
But in either case WELCOME!
