Long time ago i did have an Windows Xp intalled in vhd file (using firadisk) and i could boot from it (event from ram).
Now I am trying to do something similar with Windows 98SE or ME but it is not working and I am not sure if it is RAM related (2x1GB), other hw conflict or I am just trying to do something imposibe.
Before wasting more time I come to ask if it is doable?
I did create a vhd (fixed size 4GB fat32) and copied windows me setup files.
Booted from floppy and started setup. Instalation seems to complete and after restart I couldnt boot it.
Tried some memory fixes without luck. I am geting some Windows protection error system halted.
Here is my menu:
title Windows ME Setup\n #find --set-root /t4g.vhd map (hd1,0)/t4g.vhd (hd0) map --mem (hd0,0)/img/win98se.img (fd0) map (hd0,0)/iso/WindowsMe.iso (0xff) || map --mem (hd0,0)/iso/WindowsMe.iso (0xff) map --hook chainloader (fd0)/IO.SYS title Windows ME\n #find --set-root /t4g.vhd map (hd1,0)/t4g.vhd (hd0) map --hook map --harddrives=1 root (hd0,0) chainloader /IO.SYS
