  1. PRO1.dat is just a bootfile. if you look at most of the examples it tells you how to create pro1.dat etc. in your case pro1.dat would boot polish and pro2.dat would boot english. Basically its the standard boot file with a modification to make it boot from a folder other than i386 (the default folder)

    I've followed all the steps in the tutorial, but all i've got, is 'pro1.bin' and 'pro2.bin' files. Shouldn't I use those names instead of 'pro1.dat'?

  2. Hum, i didn't realized the example file has "???" on it, sorry about that :)

    You should change those ??? with PRO1.DAT according to my tutorial. Of course you can name the boot file, what ever you what :)

    No, your example file is OK, but I was unsure, since I dont have "pro1.dat" file at all.

  3. I've tried to create my own cdshell.ini based on the example, and tried to make it as simple as possible. But i've get stuck, and now I'm a little bit confused...

    print "\n"
    print "Press Enter to boot from DVD... \n"
    getkey 5 boot 0x80
    if $lastKey == key[enter]; then goto time
    # When no key found...
    goto boot

    # Printing the Interface
    set textColor= color[grey on black]
    set boldColor= color[cyan on black]
    print c "\cXXMicrosoft Windows XP Professional Installation Pack \n\n""
    print l "\cXXPress \c0BF1 \cXXfor Help"\n"
    print c " Choose language version: \n"
    print "1) Polish\n"
    print "2) English\n\n"

    print "R) Reboot \n"
    print "Q) Quit to Command Prompt \n"
    print "ESC) Boot from 1st Harddisk \n"
    print c "\n"

    getkey 20 boot 0x80
    if $lastKey == key[1]; then ???
    if $lastKey == key[2]; then ???
    if $lastKey == key[q]; then end
    if $lastKey == key[r]; then reboot

    if $lastKey == key[F1]; then goto Help
    if $lastKey == key[esc]; then boot 0x80

    Now, what should I put to these two lines, to start installation of the choosed system immedietely?

    if $lastKey == key[1]; then ???
    if $lastKey == key[2]; then ???

    Directory structure:









    (BTW what files should i keep in the 'boot' folder?)
