Windows 7 Portable from HBCD 15.1 by DLC - running from USBhbcd usb boot
Posted 02 August 2012 - 11:59 AM
I've found that it is booted by isolinux so it must be cd to run. My question is: how to emulate cd with grub/syslinux to run Win7 portable?

In what way does it 'not work'?
What is the isolinux menu entry for it in the ISO?
Posted 02 August 2012 - 12:21 PM
menu label Mini Windows 7 Portable
COM32 /DLC1/chain.c32 ntldr=/DLC1/bootw7p
There's boot loader and folder WIM with windows7pe.wim file in it. So I think that bootw7p is loading the wim file but it can do it only if is started from cd. Am I right?

Copy the entire contents of the ISO (including all top level files) to the USB.
Run RMPrepUSB and press F3 - run an admin command prompt from the Syslinux_3.86 folder and type the command as follows (where h: is your USB drive letter)
C:Program Files (x86)RMPrepUSBSYSLINUXSyslinux_3.86>syslinux.exe -f h: h:syslinux.bin
Rename the USB isolinux.cfg file to syslinux.cfg
Now use this grub4dos menu entry...
title Hirens 15.1 DLC chainloader /syslinux.bin
You may also need to change the livecd filename to liveusb for some linux images to work...???

I mean Windows 7 Portable only. The rest of cd works.

Win 7 portable boots and loads desktop and shows the HBCD Program Launcher app - it all looks OK to me?

Mini XP works perfectly, Mini Win7 gives me message:
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer
2. Choose your language settings and then press Next
3. Click Repair your computer
If you don't have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

I also am having an issue with Win7 from USB. I updated to a newer and more complete version of 15.1 v2.0 and now windows 7 will not load. It gives a BlInitializeLibrary failed 0xc0000017 error. Spent the last few hours trying to find a resolution. Any help would be appreciated.
That is the exact same error I am having, yet to have found a resolution to it either.
steve6375 = on your
tutorial: 85 - Add the O&O DiskImage Professional ISO to your USB multiboot drive
you may want to update that the OOLIC folder has to be @ the main directory of the USB drive or you will still get the licensing error. I only know this because before your tutorial I talked to there support team to manually put it on the USB by its self and they specified to me that ever folder and file had to be on the top directory. Thanks for that tutorial cause now I have it added to my multiboot USB drive which is what I have been trying to do for some time!
Hoping you can assist in the correction with this error with win7.
