Topic: Run DOS-based tool with EasyBoot
started by: martinx
Posted by martinx on Nov. 15 2003,20:28It's easy to add DOS-based tools with EasyBoot:
1) Make a DOS bootable floppy with the tools on it, test it on your PC
2) Create floppy image (named xxx.img)by clicking 'Tools' in 'File' page
3) Use command 'run xxx.img' in menu item
There is a sample image for Norton Ghost: < http://www.ezbsvs.com/download/ghost.img >
And a sample image for PQMagic:
< http://www.ezbsys.com/download/pm8.img >
Tips for creating a large image from 1.44MB image(s):
- Start EasyBoot, click 'Tools' and select 'Create New Floppy image' from popup menu
- On the dialogue, specify the 1.44MB image as seed, choose desired image size (for example, 8640) as 'image size(kb)' and output filename as wanted, then click 'Create'
- Start UltraISO, open the 1.44MB image and press F4 to extract all files and folders to a temp folder
- Open the newly created 8.64MB image by UltraISO, add all files from the temp folder to it and save

Posted by Incroyable HULK on Dec. 09 2004,14:43You can create a floppy image larger than 1.44Mo with EasyBoot, go to:
Tools - Create New Floppy Image... - and select the desired size in the drop down menu.
You will have to provide a "seed" image of the first floppy so the boot sector is copied over.
Then you can add content to your newly created floppy image using utility such as WinImage (you'll have to correct the size of the image in the program).
Hope this helps!
Posted by pchaxor on Jan. 08 2005,10:55Any ideas how to MULTIBOOT Dos Utilities from a Menu ?
I have 4 bootable iso files I am trying to make 1 CD menu for.
Posted by jaconbue on May 23 2005,17:48You can create a submenu and put all Dos utilities in it.
It's easy and quickly.
With more work to do, you can use a simple dos floppy image with Cd-Dvd support. In the last line of autoexec.bat, put a call to a program in DOS to make your custom menus (I used Norton Utilities 5.0, editing "norton.cmd"), this programs acts as a shell. This program launches your dos utilities, which are in a specific folder inside de cd-dvd.
Posted by jaconbue on May 24 2005,09:34If you need to access to dos utilities in your dvd, and you don't care the drive letter, you need a *bat file to create an environment variable %CDROM%.
If this variable is correctly asigned, you can call the desired dos utility from any *bat file in the bootable floppy image.
There is a more detailed explanation about my way to create a DVD with DOS Utilities in the topic

Posted by lewis on Jul. 07 2006,11:21Why is the feature for creating a DOS floppy image greater than 1.44Mbytes not a standard feature of UltraISO?. I want one tool to create open and edit all ISO images.

What if there are two floppies that you normally use to boot the computer? How do you combine them into one img file?
It is simple,like this:
Actually any one can be used!
1、Preprations materials:PQ tools、ghost.exe，etc...
2、To use one of boot floopy Images;
3、to download the "ghost.img“ from the first floor;
4、to Withdraw "autoexec.bat" files from the ghost.img by "Winimage" soft;,then rewrite the command that needs to be replaced;
5、add the autoexec.bat that has been rewritten to "ghost.img"file,then to save;it will turn into a new tool imge;
6、Finally do like the first floor(ezboot).
As long you use the boot floopy image,you can make a lot of "img" on dos tools.Good luck!

Posted by gcameron on Dec. 02 2009,12:49This procedure DOES not make a BOOTABLE CD (I tried it exactly). When loaded in UltaISO all it says is "Disk Image".
