USB Tools


Best Answer Wonko the Sane , 17 February 2013 - 06:37 PM

just want to know when using a xboot to boot an iso image if there is a kernel in Xboot utility or it is only a bootloader, that's all!!  

I will try again, what you asked (and as well the above quoted sentence) makes not any sense. :ph34r:

 

Xboot is a tool (coded in .Net 4.0 :w00t:) to attempt to make things easier to make a multi-boot setup on a USB stick. 

 

It is nothing but a "wizard" or "helper" to ease the use of tools like Syslinux/Isolinux/Memdisk and/or grub4dos (which are BOTH and AT THE SAME TIME bootmanagers AND bootloaders - for some Operating systems only - AND in the case of grub.exe ALSO a DOS executable AND a Linux kernel).

 

You started a thread in "Boot Linux and other OS flavours", while there is a dedicated forum for Xboot:
http://reboot.pro/forum/126-xboot/

 

There is a sticky there "Introduction to XBoot.":

http://reboot.pro/to...ction-to-xboot/

which should have made that clear.

 

If you detail the actual problem you have been experiencing, then - hopefully - someone may be able to help you with it :), but right now I have no idea of what the actual problem is :(.

Hi,

 

i created tools.iso with kernel 3.6 and i was wondering if XBoot comes with kernel. I am having problem where reboot command stalls if i use XBoot. but if i used tools.iso reboot works fine with no issue.

Any quick prompt highly appreciated.

Thanks
