A very good entry for a thread reserved to mapping .iso to (hd32) or (0xFF). :whistling:
An entirely NEW approach, avoiding the mapping completely! :w00t:

I have half an idea of changing the topic title to

Post here whatever crosses your mind as long as it at least loosely related to grub4dos

so that people can start posting in it Syslinux/Isolinux and CDshell/BCDW related matters ;).

:cheers:
Wonko

I understand and sorry for my English technical language translated into about projects based on "GRUB4DOS".
This menu entry in my archive "multiboot" DVD using the bootloader "gldr" at the root of it satisfies me.

Hirens 15.2 Boot from ISO
v15.2 now works for miniXP from pure ISO file. However, to get the DOS and some linux utilities to work, you need to copy a few extra files and folders to your USB drive still (but <300MB).
See Tutorial 29 on my site for full details.
Note the single quote in the filename - DO NOT CHANGE THE ISO PATH NAME!

title Hirens Boot CD 15.2\nISO file must be contiguous

find --set-root --ignore-floppies --ignore-cd /ISO/Hiren'sBootCD.iso

map /ISO/Hiren'sBootCD.iso (0xff)

Steve, I cannot find any link or information on your site on where exactly one can download that Hirens 15.2 .iso from :unsure:, it seem like a not so-trifling detail is missing from your site :whistling:
As a matter of fact I cannot find such a link even on the actual "official" site of Hiren's. :w00t:
Is it because it is considered WAREZ? (by WHOM?):

Hiren's Boot CD is a heavily modified and illegal version of Microsoft Windows XP and contains some software which is not copyright free or distribution-right free (considered Warez). However, it is very prevalent on the internet and the ISO file can be easily downloaded.



What about the poor, unexperienced users that cannot find a valid download link or risk to find one edited by someone and containing a virus or a malware? :ph34r:

Should you not in your Tutorial guide these poor souls? :unsure:
Or even better host a verified copy of it making it available for download? :dubbio:

:cheers:
Wonko

It boot, display show blue page, but stop why it not find temporary file in hard disk.
It start recovery installation and not recovery console.
I installed sata driver with nslite.
Why?


This thread is reserved for people reporting their success using newish releases of grub4dos that allow for direct booting to a .iso imaging through mappig the ISO image to (hd32).

Ideally, any user who had some success with this way of booting can post here reporting what he succeeded with and how he did it, links to other boards, tutorials guides related to the matter are also welcome.

PLEASE NO request for help here, post them in the grub4dos forum.

PLEASE NO "Nice, thank you!" kind of posts.

PLEASE NO "Ha, this is not useful!" type of comments.

This thread should become simply a list of working setups, no more, no less. :)

Thanks for cooperation.

Run Ophcrack from ISO (thanks to cdob for this 'partnew' method)

Has anyone tried the latest partition magic? PMAGIC_2012_08_09

 

Using following will not work for some reason I get an error where it cant find PMAGIC_2012_08_09.SQFS

 

title pmagic_2013_02_28
find --set-root /iso/pmagic_2013_02_28.iso
map --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0  /iso/pmagic_2013_02_28.iso (0xff)
map --hook
root (0xff)
chainloader (0xff)

 

now If I put the iso under root .. /pmagic_2013_02_28.iso it works fine.

 

title pmagic_2013_02_28
find --set-root /pmagic_2013_02_28.iso
map --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0  /pmagic_2013_02_28.iso (0xff)
map --hook
root (0xff)
chainloader (0xff)

 

Any Ideas?

 

thanks

ISO name must be in pmagic_yyyy_mm_dd.iso format and must be in root.

 

If you need to relocate it, try the partnew method - see http://www.rmprepusb...torials/autoiso for details.

 

 

make sure partition table 4 is empty on your USB boot drive or this will wipe it (does not work under QEMU the first time but does on a real system)!

title pmagic_2013_02_28.iso
partnew (hd0,3) 0x00 /iso/pmagic_2013_02_28.iso
map  /iso/pmagic_2013_02_28.iso (0xff)
map --hook 
root (0xff) 
chainloader (0xff) 

or use this method (change parameters as required)

title Parted Magic /ISO/pmagic_2013_02_28.iso (booting the kernel) 
map /ISO/pmagic_2013_02_28.iso (0xff)

grdlr would complain without map --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0
 
Perhaps I should add some background:
Booting Dell Latitude from HD to grldr in MBR FAT32 (NO USB Boot)
 
I then Load Plop from HD menu.lst to boot the USB Sandisk 32G Stick
 
title Load USB2.0 (fd0)/plpbt.img\nBooting USB from HD not working\nUse plop from CDRom
# Edit *** Above notes not applicable, booting from HD or CDRom working fine ***
find --set-root /plpbt.img
map --mem /plpbt.img (fd0)
map --hook
chainloader (fd0)+1
rootnoverify (fd0)
map --floppies=1
 
Once plop is loaded, I select USB --> grldr MBR FAT32 
From USB menu.lst I then run Parted Magic
 
Regards

Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10
Based on kDn: Post #53 http://reboot.pro/50...dpost__p__97266

New: at fragmented ISO file: basically RAM load kernel and initrd only.

1. Create empty file liveusb in root USB drive
2. Download kav_rescue_10.iso and rename to rescue.iso http://support.kaspe...cuedisk?level=2
3. Create folder "rescue" and copy "rescue.iso" into it.

Help files and EULA are available at <CD>rescuehelp

 

title Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10

#http://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/rescuedisk?level=2

#tag file /liveusb required

map --hook > nul

dd if=()%KRD10ISO% of=(222) bs=2048 count=%CDsec%

kernel %kernel%

initrd %initrd%

boot
Adjust CDsec at new Rescue Disk versions.

Edited: CDsec=7000

how to calculate the CDsec?  because i have pc hang problem (http://reboot.pro/to...table/?p=169380 )
and i think its because i didnt change this number

im updating my rescue.iso file every day so maby i have to change that value !

how to ?
