Welcome to Easyboot @ForFun :)

Quote: ” want made boot Win 8 on second partition”

Hmmm… I’m a little bit confused here ???
From where do you run (launch) EasyBoot ???
----------------------

Test this:

1. Download my set of scripts (you have download below in every post I write in this forum)

2. Extract folder ‘balder’ to the root [C:]

3. Make a copy of file ‘setupnt6.img’ in folder ‘balder/USB_Resources’ to somewhere

4. Rename the copy of ‘setupnt6.img’ to ‘win8.img’

5. Open file win8.img’ (I used UltraIso to open file) and extract text-file ‘menu.lst’ to somewhere (keep file ‘win8.img’ still opened with UltraIso)

6. Open extracted text-file ‘menu.lst’ (use notepad) and modify text:

find --set-root --ignore-floppies /bootmgr
chainloader /bootmgr

To

find --set-root --ignore-floppies /win8mgr
chainloader /win8mgr

Save changes to text-file

7. Inject back modified text-file ‘menu.lst’ into ‘win8.img’ (I used UltraIso to this)

8. Save changes to win8.img

9. Copy modified file win8.img to folder EZBOOT

10. Use menu command in Easyboot:  run win8.img


This is what happens...
When launching win8.img – which is basically a ‘grub kicker-image’ – grub starts to search for a file win8mgr and when found, it chainloads file win8mgr.

I don’t know what kind of external harddrive you use but I guess it is connected via USB :O
If having an USB harddrive, it is possible to boot to USB harddrive when computer starts up and having the menu of Easyboot launched directly from USB harddrive and from EasyBoot menu launch whatever you like (win8 on second partition of USB drive as example) :cool:

Okay - this means you set motherboard to boot from USB harddrive (harddrive with your 3 partitions)

EasyBoot launches and you can chose to launch different items from the menu of Easyboot.

To make it easier I have created a 'kicker-image' that you copy to folder EZBOOT :;):

Do it this way:

1. Download my 'kicker-image' (setupwin8.img) from HERE and copy image image to folder EZBOOT
Note: DO NOT copy to folder EZBOOT on your USB harddrive, but to where you have EasyBoot installed, which in normal case, is to the root in your computer - and the root is normally the internal harddrive C: (or partition C: but you may have installed EasyBoot to another partition)

2. Use the same EasyBoot menu as you used before to you USB harddrive and put in one more menu entry using menu command:  run setupwin8.img

3. Save changes to your menu in EasyBoot as usual and finally create a new ISO as well to make sure changes to menu is taking affect

4. Copy the whole folder EZBOOT to USB harddrive overwriting all files in that folder with this new files

5. Finally rename file 'bootmgr' in partition-2 (your Win8 setup) to setupwin8

When using menu command: run setupwin8.img  the 'kicker-image' search for a file setupwin8 and when found, it chainload that file and your setup of Win8 should start up :cool:

Yes this is fully normal behaviour from WinXP
You cannot use the same procedure to WinXP when run setup from USB device
It is a little tricky but I have tested and it do work correctly
Best is if you have a small (1 GB or larger) USB stick left to test from :)

Solution is in post nr;2 (follow link) HERE

You of course must create a new menu entry (run setupxp.img) and copy 'setupxp.img' to folder EZBOOT
Then save again your menu in EasyBoot and finally when you have files and folders related to WinXP copied to USB stick (using solution mentioned in link above) you copy folder EZBOOT to USB stick overwriting existing folder EZBOOT on USB stick :cool:

As you can notice - a little bit tricky - but reasonable easy to solve :;):
Note: If you have downloaded my script-collection, you already have 'setupxp.img' in folder 'USB_Resources'
------------------------------------
Or test this:
In theory, you should be able to simply copy files and folders from your 'test USB stick' to the USB device you already have with EasyBoot and other stuff.
In that case you only need to copy 'setupxp.img' to folder EZBOOT on USB and also replace with new menu in folder EZBOOT as well (the menu with 'run setupxp.img')


EDIT:
I tested using an 'spare' USB stick
This is what I did:

1. Run WinSetupFromUSB_0-2-3.exe

2. Used in WinSetupFromUSB_0-2-3.exe built-in format tool - RMPrepUSB with 'FAT32' and 'XP bootable (NTLDR)' as settings.

3. I browsed to WinXP-files in WinSetupFromUSB_0-2-3.exe

4. Finally pushed to GO and accepted everything

5. When finished I plugged in my other USB stick with its EasyBoot files and folders.

6. I then copied following files and folders from USB stick with WinXP setup-files to USB stick with EasyBoot-files

$WIN_NT$.~BT
$WIN_NT$.~LS
BOOT.INI
BOOTFONT.BIN
NTDETECT.COM
NTLDR
TXTSETUP.SIF
windefault
WINNT.SIF

WIN51
WIN51IP
WIN51IP.SP2
Note: you may have some more 'tag-files' to copy over

This seems to work okay - but no guaranties as files are copied over (always an hazardous manoeuvre)

------------------------------------
Nice progress you have done already @ForFun - very nice... :;):
