Hi,

 

I'm trying to add a diagnostic tool for lenovo's pc (free tool) on my sardu ISO.

I've tried to add as ISO (GRUB)/ ISO(RAM-GRUB)/ISO-RAM(memdisk)/ISO-RAM(raw)...tried all options in extra menu... :hmm:

 

Here's the download link:

http://download.leno...table-cd-16.iso

 

Thanks in advance! :thumbsup:

Thanks for reply davide...

Theres any way to make it work?

 

isolinux.cfg

 

 

default ldiag
prompt 1
timeout 1
label ldiag
kernel /live/vmlinuz
append file=/live/filesystem.squasfs boot=live vga=791 initrd=/live/initrd.img ro quiet single
 
 
And this are the folders and its contents:
isolinux
 > boot.cat
 > isolinux.bin
 > isolinux.cfg 
 > vesamenu.c32
 
live
 > filesystem.squashfs
 > initrd.img
 > vmlinuz
 
Its based on debian distro...

Why don't you use the grub4dos partnew method - works with almost any linux ISO?

You could add this to Sardu and it would work with almost any unknown linux ISO.

Yep, works fine with Easy2Boot.  :good: 

 

Make sure the 4th partition entry is unused.

title any linux iso
#enable parttype output
debug on
# make empty table entry in 4th position in ptn table
parttype (hd0,3) | set check=
debug off
set check=%check:~-5,4%
if "%check%"=="0x00" partnew (hd0,3) 0 0 0
if not "%check%"=="0x00" echo WARNING: PTN TABLE 4 IS ALREADY IN USE! && pause && configfile /menu.lst
debug on
map /linux-bootable-cd-16.iso (0xff)
map --hook
partnew (hd0,3) 0x0 /linux-bootable-cd-16.iso
root (0xff)
chainloader (0xff)

Thanks  steve6375, i'll try it... and post the results  :good: :good: :good:

 

PS: Steve I've checked and easy2boot is for USB drives, what I need is for DVD (bootable)

Can I use those lines and put on iso_extra.cfg?
