Misty, a lil/couple question/s

it is possible to make a program, who can put g4d in CDRom(folder) as iso and/or "install"
to USB-Stick with a emty "isos" folder, where it is possible to put different iso's in this folder
where make it possible to read in the ./isos folder and list this iso's in a bootmenu
and starts via svbus-host-adapter as live-cd ..
like linux.iso's or WinNT.iso and PE's in this single folder.

if there a folder with iso's as example ./boot-menu-isos/* take this folder and create a bootable iso from it..
i think on a Administration-tool DVD/blueray/USB-Stick with different iso's for a DVD or blueray or something
on a USB-Stick do i think on minisd's (with 64-128 or more Gig)
where be supported by USB-Stick
https://images-na.ss...mTL._SY355_.jpg
or
https://i.ebayimg.co...GfOx/s-l225.jpg

where it is really easy possible to have a huge usb.. therewith also the possible to have many iso's
on it where it is possible to "catch" and boot so creating a Application who make :

[ ]add/install G4D to the usb-stick and make it possible to boot to the Menu
[ ]create a bootmenu via array out from the ./isos by booting (menu-generating/creating by starting of G4D)
[ ]start the iso via svbus-vsha via selecting and starting the readed Iso-Filename (press enter)

as single exe..
is that interesting for you ?

best regards
Blacky

@Blackcrack
I'm not sure if I have understood correctly.

If you are asking me if I am able to create an application/executable to complete the tasks in your post then the answer is most definitely no. Please do not be fooled by my Developer status - I'm no programmer.

The scope of your suggestions is huge. Let's take the autocreation of a grub4dos bootmenu from a range of .iso files copied to the proposed ./isos folder - which grub4dos settings are required? Different .iso files will likely require different grub4dos settings. Even using RTM windows builds, Windows NT5 and Windows NT6 are significantly different and require a completely different approach if trying to install Windows from a Grub4dos mapped .iso using SVBus. Generating a boot menu on the fly based on .iso files that are likely to have random names is a recipe for disaster.

Your post also mentioned linux.iso's - this has no relevance to SVBus.

Sorry if I have misunderstood any of your points.

One last comment - I prefer manual approaches to creating multiboot systems (including multiboot USB drives) as this helps me to understand the steps involved and helps to develop my skills and knowledge.

Regards,

Misty

You just described Easy2boot:

SVBUS is a (Windows NT) virtual disk driver (with a particular capability to "hook" grub4dos mapped images), it is NOT a "host adapter" and it will ONLY work on Windows NT family OS's and PE's.

Wonko, it supports not to read out the name of the iso's via array and
not a folder where you can place easy a couples of iso's where should be able to boot..

but well.. was only a burb belch..

Yep, still not hot enough to cause an eruption : :eek:

Seriously, I don't think :dubbio: you can use "belch" the way you used (I mean without putting a hand before your mouth ;)), you probably meant more like burst or outburst? :unsure:

No, hiccup or brain fart have a negative meaning,  what BlackCrack was trying to say is - I believe - that he had a sudden inspiration/intuition and spoke/wrote about it on the spur of the moment, without analyzing it/thinking about it much.
