Well, we cannot avoid this, but there is a simple fix to solve this issue :;):

In EasyBoot menu the first menu command should be to start from harddisk which is the boot 80 menu command (including a nice progress bar with 10 seconds delay or whatever you prefer)

Following happens:
You start installation of WinXP from menu of EasyBoot and when computer reboot it again launch EasyBoot menu (from CD\DVD-reader) and after 10 seconds delay EasyBoot launch menu command 'boot 80' - which is start from first harddisk

This means if you are not present with the computer (you may taking a cup of tee or whatever) you get a delay of 10 seconds and then computer boot to the harddisk and the setup procedure continues :cool:

So the simple fix is to have the menu command 'boot 80' as the first menu command in your menu and use a short delay before 'boot 80' go into action
In this way you don't need to be present at the keyboard :)

This solution of course also works to Win7 :cool:

Quote from my earlier post: "the simple fix is to have the menu command 'boot 80' as the first menu command in your menu and use a short delay before 'boot 80' go into action"
Using above method solves your problem :cool:

Note: you are bound to let the EasyBoot meny appear and as first entry in EasyBoot menu have the option 'boot 80' command to take action (after a short delay of 10 seconds or whatever)

This means that each time computer reboots, the EasyBoot menu appear but then automatically boot to the harddisk and the setup-process continues...

We CANNOT boot directly to the harddisk as the BIOS is set BY YOURSELF to boot from CD\DVD-unit or alternatively from USB drive :O

In both cases the EasyBoot menu must pop up followed by booting to harddisk from the menu of EasyBoot :cool:

Is this a problem ???

Welcome to EasyBoot @ForFun :)
----------------------------

Quote: "But I use Dos Programs it say "HBCD not found"

It worked fine for me :)  (I downloaded Hiren-v_10.6 and tested from USB using menu command 'run /hbcd/grldr')
Make sure your downloaded ISO (Hiren ISO) isn't corrupted in some way ???

Quote: "Setup Win 8  Pro ( I save source setup in second partition.I don't know made EasyBoot is here)

Test this:

1. Download my 'kicker-image' (setupwin8.img )HERE

2. Copy floppy image to fo0lder EZBOOT and use menu command in EasyBoot menu:  run setupwin8.img

3. Rename file 'bootmgr' to setupwin8 in that second partition (where you already have your setup-files related to Win8)
When you run setupwin8.img grub starts to look for a file 'setupwin8' and when found on that second partition setup of Win8 is launched

4. Create ISO as usual in EasyBoot and 'Burn' to USB drive as usual

Quote: "it say "HBCD Not found......"

Well.... I downloaded Hiren-V_10.6 and made following test:

1. Extracted folder HBCD from Hiren ISO-file to folder 'EasyBoot\disk1'

2. Used menu command in EasyBoot menu:  run /hbcd/grldr

3. Important! Only ticked 'Joliet' when creating ISO in EasyBoot

This worked excellent (including DOS tools like Ghost) :)

-------------
Or test following options to launch Hirens DOS tools directly:

Option-1

1. Extract folder HBCD from Hiren ISO-file to folder 'EasyBoot\disk1'

2. Use menu command in EasyBoot menu:  memdisk boot.gz
Attention! to make sure this work you must upgrade memdisk in folder EZBOOT :O
Do it this way: Copy file memdisk from folder EasyBoot\resource to folder EZBOOT overwriting existing file memdisk
Now file memdisk is up to date and working better :;):

3. Only ticked 'Joliet' when creating ISO in EasyBoot

-------------
Option-2

1. Extract folder HBCD from Hiren ISO-file to folder 'EasyBoot\disk1'

2. Open folder HBCD and extract floppy image 'boot.img' from file boot.gz to folder HBCD (I use 7zip to do this)

3. Use menu command in EasyBoot menu:  vfloppy /hbcd/boot.img

4. Only tick 'Joliet' when creating ISO in EasyBoot

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

But as told, I have no problem using 'standard command':  run /hbcd/grldr ???

Please notice that all above commands mainly only works from USB drive.
Some of Hiren program cannot be launched this way from CD\DVD as Hiren is partly 'case sensitive' (let's call it: 'upper case/lower case sensitive')

But from USB drive there shouldn't be any problem
--------------------

Anyway, nice that you solved most part of your build already - very nice work @ForFun :D

Hmmm.... What do you mean by that ???
