loaded up the flash with all of the AV and the Utilities, every option for linux, and LIVEXP and a VISTAPE.
It won't boot, just gives me a boot error.


Any ideas?

This is an interesting app, but I have a few questions/suggestions:

1. While it recognises my VistaPE iso builds (when I place one in SARDU's \iso folder), it doesn't recognise any of my LiveXP iso builds.

2. Can the app not allow for both a LiveXP iso and a VistaPE iso (it seems it's an either-or at the moment).

3. Can you add command line support for building isos and USBs?

I think this is a good collection of application.

Anyway, while testing, I'm having some issue on Win98 image.

Infact, the downloaded boot98sc.exe isn't recognized. I tried to change its name and/or create a related .img, .ima, .iso but none worked.

How this can be managed ?

Downloaded from WHERE? :D

Create a .iso or .ima or .img HOW? :D

My crystall ball is (for once in a lifetime) clear.... I can see .... a site called bootdisk.com ..... a user that has no floppy disk drives ...... that cannot extract from the self-extracting file .....
wait ... maybe this helps:

@ jaclaz

I admit I didn't enter into details while making my request but, just to answer your questions :

1 - The downloading is automatically triggered by the tool itself and, once applied, the downloaded file is boot98sc.exe. Clearly, this extention isn't usable (by the tool) and, infact, I wondered if the tool (that is SARDU) had or not a bug. The response from Lancillotto confirms my original hypothesis (bug).

2 - The .iso. .img and .ima images were created through Winimage, by using the downloaded .exe file ( just to recover from the above bug). Did I do a mistake ? For what is my poor knowledge on the matter, I don't think so.

Anyway, thanks again for supporting me with the links.

@ mohammed gebril

thanks a lot. Your advice was greatly helpful


@ lancillotto

in the changelog I read that for the last official version (1.0.6.8) the name for floppy98 was already fixed. Is it correct ?

Damn, the only time I thought the §@ç#ing crystal ball was working! :D

The tuning workshop I use really sucks :D , anyone has a crystal ball tuning specialist handy, can you share his/her name/contact? ;)

@lancillotto
JFYI, my personal opinion is that automagically downloading anything in general and specifically anything from a server on which you have NOT direct control:
http://www.boot-land...?showtopic=5281
represents a case of utter futility deemed sooner or later to fail, or however cause problems.

If I get properly the problem at hand, besides fixing the bug/updating the whatever needs to be updated, you should add somehow a "configuration" Tab to allow for:
  • using local files
  • using alternate download locations
  • change filenames used

as the same problem will come out again, sooner or later.

:D

I agree with jaclaz.

this is the (or a) "weak" point in the project.

I'd leave to the end user's responsibility the downloading task, maybe giving some advice on the best recommended links.

Anyway, imperative is the clear/unique indication of the exact filename of the image, because this last is, in turn, used (internally) by the executable.

Hi,

I'm using 1.0.6.9. The ISO/USB boot, but I just get a blank menu (both in the Virtual Machine as well as on my laptop). I've followed all the instructions and haven't modified any files. Could someone help me out with this problem?

Thanks

Yes, it's the same result even with the MobaLiveCD.

I found isolinux.cfg in \boot\grub and \boot\isolinux. I'm not sure which one you want so I added both and a couple of other files..

Attached File  Sardu3.png   46.03KB   37 downloads

Edit: I've just realized that the isolinux.cfg is present in the ISO but not in the isolinux folder. The same file is called syslinux.cfg. After renaming the file to syslinux.cfg in the ISO, I was still unable to boot. Anyways, I installed SARDU again to a temporary folder and created a test ISO with no items in it, and it worked just fine! So maybe something went wrong with that install, no idea what. I'll try redoing the whole thing again and see if it works.

Edit2: Ok I tried the whole process again, and it still doesn't work (same problem as before). I'll try adding only one ISO now and check.. Edit: It works with just Puppy Linux added. I'm now in the process of finding the incompatible ISO.

Edit3: Found the problem! It was ubcd50b12 . The file is never extracted at all, but somehow it messes up the menus/ISO. If ubcd50b12 isn't included, the whole process works fine. It's up to you now to investigate why it's messing up the build process... :lol:

There are a folder named boot in the root of sardu. This folder have the priority but not have sardu's file.
You can try iso for iso to discover which program causes the bug?

I've tried with: (list from your cfg)
Avira
Puppy (do you test with this iso http://distro.ibibli...4.3/pup-430.iso )
NtPwd
Pmagic

and not problems found

The Syslinux files in the SARDU_1 file, which is just a 7z archive (why do you hide this? :lol: ), are outdated (Syslinux 3.83 is out):

/ISO/isolinux/:

  • memdisk
  • reboot.c32
  • vesamenu.c32
/Syslinux_USB/
  • some files to build syslinux.exe (*.c, *.sh, make file) ==> not needed
  • syslinux.exe
chain.c32
reboot.c32 ==> listed again
syslinux.exe ==> listed again

I don't know why boot.cat is included, this file gets autogenerated by mkisofs.
