You can use CDShell this way:

1) Download a simplified version from http://dw.ezbsys.net/boot.zip
2) Extract it to disk1\, a folder named boot will be added there
   boot\moudles
   boot\cdshl.bin
   boot\cdshell.ini
3) Copy your disk image (xxx.img for example) to disk1\boot
4) Edit cdshell.ini, change the first line to
   memdisk /BOOT/xxx.IMG
5) Save the attached file (cdshldr.bin) to disk1\ezboot
6) Use 'run cdshldr.bin' to load your image

It can't work with Windows ME boot image file.

I posted a similar post in the UltraISO forum (http://forum.ezbsystems.net/cgi-bin/ikonboard.cgi?act=ST;f=2;t=1220), but since process is now having issues with this ISOLINUX method I thought I would post it here as well.

I am trying to add a new Ghost 8.3 bootable GhostCast ISO from Symantec, and the current Dell 32bit Diagnostics ISO to my EasyBoot disk.

[xoben] has been a tremendous amount of help getting me this far.  Following his instructions I used the BIF files instead of the ISO files and followed the rest of the above procedure.

This method works great in my VMWare / Virtual PC session.  Both Dell 32 Bit Diagnostics and the Ghost Boot CD, boot correctly.

Unfortunately the CD's did not work on any PC I have in house (12 Dell models from GX-110's through GX-620's desktops, and laptops from C600 - D610).  None of them will boot the ISOLINUX sessions, but freeze at a different points.  Some freeze at a black screen.  Others freeze imediately after the ISOLINUX version is shown with some "DL" code.

Code Sample
ISOLINUX 2.11 08/18/2004
Copyright (C) 1994-2004 H. Peter Anvin
isolinux: Starting up, DL = 82


Google resulted in the following thread that made me susspect the ISOLINUX version.
http://www.911cd.net/forums....c=10612

But after updating your process using the new ISOLINUX.CSM and the new MEMDISK module, it still freeses with either a blank screen or a new message of:

Code Sample
ISOLINUX 3.07 03/01/2005


Google resulted in the following thread(s) when looking for other persons have this problem.
http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?showtopic=15481

I am at a loss... Not really sure how to proceed at this point.

Any further advise you, or any other helpful party may have would be greatly apprecated!

Thanks!

Just a silly question?

where is isolinux involved? Do the Dell images boot from it or are you using it because somebody recommended isolinux as a solution?

I guess I cannot get a copy of that dell iso, can I?

@tattenbach
memdisk is loaded the same way a Linux kernel is. So, to use it, you need something capable of loading Linux kernels.
This would mean, you'd have to use SysLinux or GRUB. Most of us prefer the SysLinux package (btw, memdisk and isolinux are both part of it).

CDShell, on the other side, was required because it knew how to pass an argument to the isolinux command line.

Since the later versions of EasyBoot (5.08+) include another tool, the Bootable CD Wizard (BCDW), CDShell is no longer required.

Actually, because BCDW is far more flexible than CDShell ever was, I would highly recommend using BCDW over using CDShell.

To load disk images with memdisk, you need:
- EasyBoot 5.08+
- isolinux.bin and memdisk from the isolinux package, copied to c:\EasyBoot\disk1\ezboot

Then, when you want to run an image, just use the command
CODE
bcdw /ezboot/isolinux.bin /ezboot/memdisk initrd=<path-to-image-file>

You neeedn't patch anything for it to work; also, note the paths are required; for example,
CODE
bcdw ezboot/isolinux.bin /ezboot/memdisk initrd=/ezboot/dos/etsd.ima
would work, while
CODE
bcdw ezboot/isolinux.bin memdisk initrd=dos/etsd.ima
wouldn't.

Also, there's a patch I made for isolinux.bin (get it here) which allows loading of isolinux.bin, memdisk and/or the image(s) from hidden folders, too. With CDShell (as with direct ISOLinux), this was impossible.

@mionica:

Thanks for the explanation but I already knew that.

Actually my old question was in the direction of helping this person that never answered back. I just wondered why she was using isolinux with that Dell image. I do not know it but I doubt that she would really need isolinux. Hence my question, I might be wrong, but I thought she was using a wrong method. Just that!

MfG,

Hiren's 9.7 is using isolinux.

You can use "bootinfotable;run hiren.bif"; hiren.bif is the boot file.
