Well as I currently not using Vista I’m not 100% sure if method described below works, but sure worth a try. Method is based on to “kick start” Vista using a “grub floppy image” (same can be done to start winxp or win98 or Winme using different parameters that responding to different op-systems). The only problem is to find the right parameters. Anyway test this:
Download versatile-floppy-image.script from here
You are going to use section “Create new Grub-Floppy Image” - to the right you inject this lines (parameters):
find --set-root /bootmgrv
Create your new floppy image and use this command in AeroStudio:
bcdw (cd)/images/loadvista.img (you may use a different name to floppy image if you wish).
Note that I use a subdirectory (images) for my floppy images. Take a look how I use AeroStudio here
I’m pretty sure it will work if we use the right parameters. Problem is - as I pointed out - more related to set the right “grub-loader-lines”
Another example: I use this lines in menu.lst inside a floppy image to start puppy linux from USB device:
kernel /puppy/vmlinuz root=/dev/rd/0 pmedia=usbflash
I use this command in AeroStudio to start this floppy image: run (cd)/images/puppy.img.gz
Note: I use “run” instead of “bcdw” as I use a compressed image
Basically what I do is to use a floppy image witch inside have a grub loader with its menu.lst. It is this grub loader and menu.lst that is doing the “hard work” to “kick start” whatever we like to start.
The two links you posted are broken. any chance you have updated links? I would love to convert all my Grub4dos scripts in a nice GUI
