You use ISO-file of your different repair disks :;):

Test this:

1. Copy your different ISO-files of repair discs to folder EZBOOT

2. Use menu command in EasyBoot menu:  run vista86.iso   or whatever name you use to your ISO(s)
You of course set different names to your different ISO-files :;):

3. Don't tick any 'Option' when creating final ISO in EasyBoot!

You need EasyBoot_v6 or later (latest updated EasyBoot is recommended to use)

Note: above solution also works from USB drive :cool:

This solved the problem! I even put the Win 8 Rescue disc and XP disc on it so now I only need to burn one *.iso instead of 7, GREAT! Thanks Balder...  :p  :D

Attention! If it is a WinPE-ISO built from WinXP as source (reatogoPE or BartPE as example - but Hiren's 'miniXP' works okay as that one is run from RAM) you must run such WinPE-ISO from RAM with special drivers (fira-disk drivers) :O

You can use my script;  'easyboot-iso.script' and in script tick 'Run ISO from RAM' to integrate such ISO-file
Note: WinXP-based WinPE is what we call a typical NT5-system (which needs to be run from RAM if using ISO-file)
Compare with WinPE based on NT6-systems (Vista, Win7, Win8 and server-2008 which all belongs to the NT6-systems) and such WinPE-ISO can be launched as they are without any fira-disk or RAM-load :cool:

You have download of scripts below in every post I write in this forum :;):

I downloaded the XP recover disc from inside Sardu software, I guess this is the three recovery floppy's that can be downloaded from Microsoft's web site. But it seems to be some problem  ??? when I try to boot it from my newly created Easyboot Cd.

Okay I see... It is not a WinPE built from WinXP - typical ERD5, BartPE or Reatogo etcetera you mean - instead it is only the the 'boot-disks' that brings up the command prompt for repair of WinXP to reach the 'recovery consol' is what you are interested of - is this correct?

You can download such floppy images from Microsoft.
Note: you can create a 'oversized' floppy image in EasyBoot to combine all floppy images to one large image :)
In EasyBoot you choose "Tools>Create Floppy Image..." then set appropriate size and use the start floppy image (number one) as 'Seed image' (first floppy image has the important 'boot record') :O

In EasyBoot menu you use menu command:  run xprecov.img  (or xprecov.ima) or whatever name you use to final oversized floppy image :cool:

HERE is a link to some different 'startup floppy images'

EDIT!
Okay I also downloaded 'recovery consol' (ISO-file 'rc.iso' that you can find in folder 'sardu\ISO' when download is done)
This ISO is built from source of a NT5-system (WinXP in this case) and must be run from RAM with support from 'firadisk'

You must use my script 'easyboot-iso.script' and tick 'Run ISO from RAM'
This works fine

:;):

Test this:

It took awhile to find the disks, I couldn't find them att MS site but here I'll find them all.  :D I did try to use the method you say but it did not work when I try to boot the wxp.img I made.  ???

That's possible - however I used Sardu and downloaded 'WinXP recovery disc' and used that ISO (rc.iso) :O
I guess you already know ISO can be found in 'Sardu\ISO' after Sardu finished download :)

You must use my script 'easyboot-iso.script' to integrate 'rc.iso' into EasyBoot.
Important! Tick 'Run ISO from RAM' in script when integrating 'rc.iso'
Note: you automatically receive the correct menu command to use in EasyBoot menu by script :cool:

This works

-----------------------------
The EasyBoot forum archive is rather big and I found a similar solution HERE
However I suggest you use ISO-file (rc.iso) as it is and use my script to integrate ISO into Easyboot :;):
