This is you right to complain Adam – as I’m offering you a “shortcut” to a solution for free :cool:

The problem consists of that floppy image-file is not created by “bfi.exe”
And as no image file is created script fail to copy image-file to folder ezboot :O

Done some tests…
I copied folder winbuilder_complete to the desktop of my system and run script from there – and I at once got: “failed to copy image……” :O

Important: Make sure to copy (move) folder WinBuilder_complete to the root of your system – that will say C:\

By the way – please use CAPS to name in text box like this:  ISO-FILE or CHKDSK or whatever name you use.

Note: I have downloaded script and tested to make sure nothing went wrong when uploading (you never now) – but script works fine on both my WinXP_sp3 and on my Win7 systems.
Done some ”cosmetic” changes to script (messages in script updated)

Yes this could be the case – most likely ISO is built using some kind of NT6-system Win7 or server-2008 as source.
The nice thing is that script can launch these kind of ISO-files as the are with a “breeze” :laugh:
That will say - when script works okay in your computer :;):

Has anyone integrated, "Paragon's Rescue Kit" iso with EZBoot? I'm unable to get this iso to work via EZBoot, and so far most posts here have not been able to help resolve the problem.

Any suggesstions?

The second ISO I want to attempt to add to my EZBoot custom cd is the, "Avast Bart CD".

I appreciate any assistance that can be offered.

As this seems to be your first post in this forum – I say welcome :)

Well Megabytecoffee – I have easily integrated both ISO-files and tested – works fine :D

Download my set of scripts (you find it below in every post I replay)
Please read “READ_ME.html before start to using script.

You target is easyboot-iso.script
Do not use spaces in name to ISO-file and no space in folder name where you keep your ISO-file(s). Put ISO-files in a folder on the root (C:\)

Do it this way for paragon:
1. When you have “activated easyboot-iso.script” put in a name in textbox in script for name to ISO – for example PARAGONRESCUE (use CAPS to name and CAPS means BIG LETTERS).
2. Check that path to your installation of EasyBoot is the correct in script (in normal case C:\easyboot)
3. Push Start-button and point (scroll) to paragon.ISO
4. In the end you get a text-message with right menu command to use in EasyBoot menu
That’s it :;):

Do it this way for avast__BART_CD_2009.rar:
1. When you have “activated easyboot-iso.script” put in a name in textbox in script for name to ISO – for example AVASTBART (use CAPS to name and CAPS means BIG LETTERS).
2. Check that path to your installation of EasyBoot is the correct in script (in normal case C:\easyboot)
3. In this case also check “RunISO from RAM” as this ISO is built using NT5-system as source (folder i386)
4. Push Start-button and point (scroll) to avastbart.ISO
5. In the end you get a text-message with right menu command to use in EasyBoot menu
That’s it :;):

Balder,
I appreciate the support. That made it work.

The Avast Bart disc image does take a lot longer to load, is there any tweaks that may get the image to load a little more closely to the direct cd? I am expecting lag due to decompression of an image, but this one seems much greater than I would have thought.

Thanks in adavance!

That sounds like “music” in my ears :laugh:

Quote: “is there any tweaks that may get the image to load a little more closely to the direct cd?”

Sure there is :;):

Do it this way (the simple “old” way)
1. Extract everything from avastbartpe.iso to folder disk1 in Easyboot
2. Create menu in EasyBoot and use menu command:  run W2ksect.bin   Note: check that you have file W2ksect.bin in folder ezboot – it should be there
3. This way files and folder names are case sensitive and also sensitive to total length in path. This means that when creating ISO in EasyBoot, do not check “DOS(8:3)” or “Joliet” or “Allow lower case”  - leave these unchecked
Build is now working as a “normal” ISO.
Note: in this case you must continue to have CD/DVD in reader-unit.

In case you want a setup folder i386 as well in your build (you can obviously only have one folder i386 in folder disk1). If this is the case you must change name to folder i386.
Let’s start with the: ”take a chance-method”
Note: this "bcdw"-method can only be used to builds that use WinXP as source. If server-2003 is used as source to build, you cannot use this simple method
Test this:
1. Extract everything from avastbartpe.iso to folder disk1 in Easyboot
2. Rename folder i386 to – let’s say: AVAB (note: use CAPS to letters)
3. Create menu in EasyBoot and use menu command: bcdw /avab/setupldr.bin
4. This way files and folder names are case sensitive and also sensitive to total length in path. This means that when creating ISO in EasyBoot, do not check “DOS(8:3)” or “Joliet” or “Allow lower case”  - leave these unchecked
Build is now working as a “normal” ISO.
Note: in this case you must continue to have CD/DVD in reader-unit.

Or the “fancy way” use my script easyboot-live.script :laugh:
OPTIONAL to above - change name to folder i386 in case you want a setup folder i386 as well in your build (you can obviously only have one folder i386 in folder disk1 :O )
1. Create a folder avastbartpe on the root (C:\)
2. Extract everything from avastbartpe.iso to folder avastbartpe
3. Use my script easyboot-live.script
4. Script gives you a recommended menu command: ***.bin  (where *** is replaced with what you set for new  name to folder i386 in textbox in script)
5. When creating ISO in EasyBoot, do not check “DOS(8:3)” or “Joliet” or “Allow lower case” – leave this unchecked. Note: in this case you must continue to have CD/DVD in reader-unit.

Note: You can as option to both examples above, most likely delete folder “DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS” and file Winbom.ini :cool:
