hello balder ,

Sorry balder , I've forgot that you've taught me how to run Win8 in Easyboot. I remembe you've made me a kicker image for Win8.

Actually , what I want is to run 2 programs in Easyboot menu :

Win8PE
Windows 8

For Win8PE may be I can make it as a Win8PE.iso and use command run Win8PE.iso

But for Windows 8 , I've to run you Windows 8 kicker image to call the "bootmgr"

Thanks

Yes that one shouldn't cause you any problem :D
Note: its pointless to extract folders and files from a 'normal' Win8PE as such WinPE is built from source of NT6-system (in this case, source from a Windows-8)

As WinPE built from NT6-system always is loaded to RAM before executed, we can use ISO-file and as you wrote, use menu command: árun win8pe.iso á
However there are sometimes some odd build where you must copy 'programs' to the root of EasyBoot (as you already know this is 'disk1') - but not for a normal build


Quote: "But for Windows 8 , I've to run you Windows 8 kicker image to call the "bootmgr""

Well, actually not if using EasyBoot menu... ???
If you plan to use EasyBoot you simply use: árun bootmgr á(or: árun \bootmgr áif you copied 'bootmgr' to folder disk1 as I do)

However you can always use my kicker-image 'setupnt6.img' from folder 'balder\ USB_Resources'
In EasyBoot: árun setupnt6.img

Or you can use 'setupwin8.img' from 'balder\ USB_Resources' but then having 'bootmgr' related to Win8 copied to folder disk1 but you must then rename 'bootmgr' to 'setupwin8'
Note: the point with 'setupwin8' is be explained HERE

hello balder ,

Thanks for your explanation , it sounds more easy than before , I'll try them.

But one thing I've to make it clear , I'm not doing anything with my previous job like usb harddisk multi-boot with Easyboot , that have disk1 , disk2 ............

I'm trying to add Easyboot to my UEFI/GPT harddisk which has Windows 8 in it.

Before , actually what I want to is add a Win8PE to my UEFI/GPT harddisk. I can do this easily in Bios Windows 8 harddisk. No problem at all , finally find that it's entirely different from UEFI/GPT mode. So I try to find on the web and the Win8 forums , no one can give me the exact answer. Even Microsoft has the miss-leading tutorial http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh265131(v=ws.10).aspx .

My problem is that added Win8PE can't either be booted or if booted , the normal programs in it can't be run with the following error message :

    The sybsystem needed to support the image type is not present

Besides , when Win8PE is added , the bootmenu should be :

    Windows 8
    Win8PE                (with 30sec countdown time)

But the actual case is :

1. Sometimes computer boot directly into Windows 8 without passing through the bootmenu
2. Sometimes computer boot with menu , but the 30sec countdown time is missing. You have to choose the menu manually !!!

I've spend a lot of time and effort on failure. Disappointed , but suddenly I think that I've also done this in my usb-harddisk :

    Partition 1 : EFI + Easyboot
    Partition 2 : Win82Go               (This is both Bios and UEFI boot)

I'm not sure whether I can use this idea and lead to succeed. I've tried new made Easyboot + Win8PE of no problem. Now I'll continue to try adding Windows 8 to my UEFI/GPT harddisk.

I know it's not easy and may encounter a lot of failure , but I'm willing to try. As I want to create this Win8PE is for Recovery purpose. That is Win8PE + Ghost + my mini VB6 program to Backup & Recovery Windows Image.

Thanks

Hello @allgames71

Quote: "I fail in adding Easyboot to UEFI Windows 8, at boot"

1. What file-system do you use to harddisk?

2. In what way do you launch EasyBoot (ISO-file or file ezldr)?

3. If launch EasyBoot from USB stick drive you of course can use EasyBoot menu - but can you from such menu boot into the GPT-harddisk - is this possible?

Note: EasyBoot cannot launch from a NTFS or GPT partition as FAT32 is needed to 'boot-file' ezldr :(
However we can launch ISO-file of EasyBoot but we need grub or isolinux to this :O

Grub cannot be launched if having UEFI-boot (we now this already) so it looks like 'moment22-case'!

Is it possible to create a small (perhaps hided) partition with FAT32 and use this as a kind of 'first boot-partition' - example HERE

This way EasyBoot menu pops up and you can launch whatever ???
Though I guess this isn't possible as harddisk still uses GPT-table

I hate my motherboard (no UEFI-boot) - I must as soon as possible grab a newer hardware :angry:
No promises but I'm working on it

regards balder
