Will be testing some old PCs in a few weeks have noticed a significant speed difference between HDDs, CDs, and USB.

 

As result would like to Install "Hiren's Boot CD" on a Test PC HDD (Master) that would be used to test other old HDDs (Slave).

 

Is this possible?

 

Did a forum search http://reboot.pro/in...ch&fromsearch=1 but did not find anything relevant.

 

Thanks

 

Ken

hi KenO

 

that depend on how you do want install grub4dos into your master HDD

1- by grubinst_gui.exe from windows

2- by install it from dos

http://diddy.boot-la...install_dos.htm

3- load via xp ntldr 

http://diddy.boot-la...ws.htm#windows2

4- load via bootmgr

http://diddy.boot-la...ws.htm#windows3

 

once you install grub to your master HDD you can add Hiren's Boot CD 

 

if your partition format is fat32 in case install grub from dos or via ntldr extract contain of cd to the root of fat32 partition and add this to menu.lst

title Hirens boot CD
configfile /HBCD/menu.lst

if your partition format is ntfs  in case install grub from vista,7,8,10

download winvblock and put it to the root of ntfs partition

 

http://reboot.pro/to...8168-winvblock/

 

put Hirens boot ISO to the root of ntfs partition  add this to menu.lst

title Hirens boot CD ISO
map /ISO/hirens.iso (0xff)
map --mem /winvblock.img.gz (fd0)
map --mem /winvblock.img.gz (fd1)
map --hook
root (0xff)
chainloader (0xff)
