thanks for the answers

I will try another USB Stick tomorrow

since you mentioned that 'ghost11.5 DOS-version' also runs, how do I use with with EasyBoot? I tried to call iso directly and it did not work. it looks like I need to extract the files from iso and use IMG with Autoexec.bat and call IMG. The thing is I am not sure how to configure Autoexec properly (I have downloaded the sample ghost.img file).

thanks for your help

Yes of course you must run Ghost-11.5 DOS-version from an Floppy image :)
Settings in Autoexec.bat is done to the way you find it convenient :cool:
----------------------------------
And some clarifying about 'Burn'...
Each time you use *burn' it wipes out everything on your USB stick :O
However you can use the rest of space (what shows up in Windows Explorer) and format that space to whatever file-system you prefer.

Note: 'EasyBoot>>Burn' always wipes out the whole USB stick and if 'Create Partition' is checked, it also create a separate hided partition with EasyBoot files on that hided partition.
You can now use the rest of stick as it please you - but watch out - don't use 'Burn' if you have photos etcetera to USB stick during 'test period' - only when you have an 'working EasyBoot build' and not any more use 'Burn' anymore :cool:

Thanks for clarification. I see how it works with the partition.

Alright, I tried another usb stick and it's the same story, neither acronis nor win7 work with deeply hidden partition. I tried on both notebook and virtual machine. really weird.

could it be so that the hidden partition does not support folders and everything needs to be in the root of the partition?

I could remove everything but Acronis from the ISO file and upload it to the server and PM the link to you, if you will be so kind and to have a look at it and maybe test it in your environment.

regards

Sure, I'll see what I can do... :cool:

I have discovered that you don't need to check 'Deep Hidden' :O
Only check 'Create Boot Partition' if you are interested to hide build.

Another benefit with only checking 'Create Boot Partition' is that 'Password' is working correctly :)
If also checking 'Deep Hidden' password doesn't work correctly - so skip 'Deep Hidden' always :O

I did the USB-HDD+ v2 with only Create Boot Partition checked and wrote it to USB. I tested Acronis, Ghost 15, Active Boot Disk and all of them worked perfectly.

Windows 7 setup started pretty well up to the point where it needed to look for the drives to install Windows into. Since it uses its own system to look for the files and partition was hidden, it could not even list all available drives and asked to specify the folder with the drivers that would help to look for the drives. Obviously it is not possible to tell it to look for a hidden partition with Win7 setup files with drivers. So, it was the dead end in this case. I do not think that Windows 7 setup will be able to run from a hidden partition.

But everything works alright if I do USB-HDD+ v2 without creating/hiding the partition. I think I can live with that for now.

regards

Yes this is an expected scenario, and frankly - logical :cool:

Thank you for enlighten easyboot-community according to setup of NT6-systems :)

Note: same is to BitDefender and similar utilities - must run from 'visible area' of USB disk :O

------------------------------------
Glad rest of software worked as I briefly instructed you :;):

Great work @tridy :D
