Hello,

This is my first post; I would like to apologize for my English errors.

My initial goal was to create memory stick with multibootable ISO images.

My problems began when I wanted to convert my CD’s or pendrive’s various applications which are bootable under dos or linux into bootable ISO images. [bootable CD\USB -> Bootable ISO image]
I tried to use different programs but I am having problem with finding and adding the proper Boot Image from USB stick.
I tried to add one by one all files to determine which the appropriate boot image is but I was unable to load the program in QEMU emulator.
I read that this is not a problem with operating systems like Windows Vista etc “Point the 'Boot Image' to the 'etfsboot.com' file within the 'boot' folder in your source folder”, but in my case I could not find how to do this with other programs for example Paragon Drive Backup, Norton Ghost  or another bootable  tools.

I would be very grateful if someone have done something similar and would like to share it with the knowledge or direct to any helpful source.

Welcome to EasyBoot forum @Kristof :)

Some examples...

Paragon software can be run from Easyboot
Read one example HERE

----------------------------

Norton Ghost (rescue ISO-file) can be launched simply using this method:

1. Copy Norton Ghost.iso-file (bootable ISO-file) to folder EZBOOT

2. Use menu command:  run ghost.iso   (or whatever name you use to iso-file

Test given solutions above and see if it could be to any help :cool:

Further more... Can you please bee more specific which software you want to launch from EasyBoot :;):

A hint! Don't forget to use 'Search' in upper right corner and also set  to search from 'Older' topics
You will find a lot of solutions this way :;):

Hi Balder,

very appreciate for your help and sorry for late reply.

So, to be more specific lets consider my following scenario:

1. Paragon Drive Copy 11 Bootable recovery usb (please see attached usb file structure)

2. Challenge is to transfer this usb into bootable ISO file and add to other tools.

After two weeks searching and testing I cannot still find  the answer and I am wonder If this case is doable with easy boot or with any other tool?

I will be very grateful for your opinion and advices.

Cheers Balder

Aha... So you are in a position to 'revert' Paragon Drive Copy 11 from USB to ISO-file
Well that's a major difference :D

I didn't notice any attached usb file structure ???

Anyway, if you have paragon drive copy 11 installed to your computer, you simply open paragon folder (inside folder program files) and search for a folder 'ISO'. Use this ISO in EasyBoot as described HERE

Attention! You may need to update some files in EasyBoot\disk1\ezboot :O

Do as follow: Open folder EasyBoot\resource and copy files 'isolinux', 'memdisk' and file 'syslinux' to folder EZBOOT overwriting existing files in folder EZBOOT :cool:

Hello Balder,

sorry to keep you busy but I am still in trouble and perhaps you are the only man who can help me out.

Returning back to the beginning I think I did not described exactly what is my problem.

My specific problem is that I do not have any iso files.

I have only bootable usb\cd's  drive with various programs including my last examples Drive Copy 11 recovery usb.


I am also curious if lets assume I have program named "whatever" which is not iso and is not bootable whether would be possible to convert this program to bootable iso file?

I found this " EasyBoot V6.53  has the ability to automatically produce boot image files, and generate the ISO file as well"  on the EZBsystem page and I thought that this program is what I was looking for.

I am completely newbie with this thinks :( and I would appreciate some explanation from some genius like you ;)

I tried to attach the screenshot again (doc or png file),  I do not know if I am doing something wrong but I receiving message that "you cannot upload this type of file"

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Well that's a different story.... :D

I cannot really help you more than point to 'Google' (search on Internet to be more specific) ???

EasyBoot is a 'boot-manager' that create it's own 'boot-sequence' and from that point is able to launch different software applications

EasyBoot cannot create software from 'nothing' - we need bootable files of different status (bootable ISO-files or bootable exe-files or bootable 'bin-file' etcetera

Read a typical example HERE

Try to follow and create your first EasyBoot example from that example :;):

It's so easy to find software on Internet so just go ahead and search :)

If you do have a bootable cd\dvd you can use UltraIso and choose 'Tools>>Make CD/DVD Image'
This creates a exact 'mirror' of your bootable CD\DVD

Some notes... Reason to that we in many cases discuss ISO-files, is NOT because EasyBoot needs ISO-files - its because ISO-files is such a handy way to share programs or files and the ISO-format makes it easy to make copies (exact copies) of such software or files

However in many cases EasyBoot can run software by launching ISO-file as it is - which is a very handy way to manage boot of a software - but no guaranties it works - in some cases we have to do some extra (copy a file or a folder to the root of EasyBoot which is folder 'disk1')

Thank you for quick reply and your suggestions.

Quote: "EasyBoot cannot create software from 'nothing' - we need bootable files of different status (bootable ISO-files or bootable exe-files or bootable 'bin-file' etcetera"

You see, I realize that EZB cannot create software from nothing, but the think is that this programs are bootable and contain the "bin-file or another bootable files"

So the problem is that I cannot determine which file I should point as the boot image file to launch the application.

Anyway, I would like to thank you for your effort with helping me.

Regards,
Kristof
