  1. Thanks Jaclaz. It is working fine. one more thing, Is there any way instead of the local drive, can we put the winpe content in a network and boot from there?
  2. Thanks for the suggestion. My solution has to work on win7, win 2008 and win 10 machines also. I ll check this update result.
  3. Jaclaz, after i downloaded the grbldr file from the above links given, there is some docs folder available which has README_GRUB4DOS.txt file which has below information "An NTFS volume can be GRUB-bootable. Copy grldr and an optional menu.lst to the root dir of the NTFS volume, According to the first 7 to 10 grldr.dbr sector, Create a boot sector. And then the NTFS volume is GRUB-bootable. Update: bootlace.com is a DOS/Linux utility that can install the GRLDR boot record onto the leading 4 sectors of an NTFS volume." but in the steps which u mentioned does not has grldr.dbr sector creation step. Is this step needed? if needed, how to create a boot sector. I am trying on Win10 installed machine, copied win 10 OS media iso in D drive. copied grldr and menu.lst, boot.ini to the root of C drive...will this work for win 10 also rite? but for me it is not working :):) i SAW A SECTION IN THE SAME README_GRUB4DOS.txt FILE should we follow something like below for win 7 or win10 OS installed machine ****************************************************************************** *** GRUB4DOS and Windows Vista *** ****************************************************************************** First, use the following command to create a boot entry: bcdedit /create /d "GRUB for DOS" /application bootsector The result will look like this: The entry {05d33150-3fde-11dc-a457-00021cf82fb0} was successfully created. The long string {05d33150-3fde-11dc-a457-00021cf82fb0} is the id for this entry. Then, use the following commands to set boot parameters: bcdedit /set {id} device boot bcdedit /set {id} path \grldr.mbr bcdedit /displayorder {id} /addlast Please replace {id} with the actual id returned from the previous command. Finally, copy GRLDR.MBR to C:\ or wherever your boot drive is, and copy GRLDR and menu.lst to the root directory of any FAT16/FAT32/EXT2/NTFS partition. Note: A boot partition should be the active primary partition with BOOTMGR inside. The `device boot' indicates grldr.mbr should be in the boot partition.
  4. Hi Jaclaz, I have tried the same mentioned by you...but it is not working. I created boot.ini file and menu.lst in C drive also created grpldr file in root of C drive. when I boot the machine, In the boot menu it is not listing GRBDOS as option. what might be the problem...should we update BCDEDIT instead of boot.ini file. BCDEDIT has to be used to specify the boot order rite suggest me if any mistake im doing.

  6. Jaclaz if I have OS dvd and inserted in the DVD drive of the machine. If I boot from the machine, it will generally ask press any key to boot from the DVD.. is there any way we can skip answer to this and machine should boot automatically from the DVD available in the machine.. for example when I logged into the OS, I will create some script file and put in C drive and restart the machine. machine shud automatically boot to OS dvd present in the machine
  7. Thanks Jaclaz so I have to create two files in the C drive. and OS media has to be copied in the D drive or C drive. One more question....When the machine boots next time can we boot automatically to the OS content copied in the D drive, Is there any way we can automate selecting the added option at boot time "grub4dos" we should not select option manually boot time "grub4dos". can we avoid this?
  8. hi Jaclaz, Thanks for your reply. some more details, about my question is second option mentioned by you ...another partition/volume on the same hard disk that hosts the C: volume. I have a operating system running in the machine. I logged into the machine. can I copy the OS media content or winpe content to the D drive of the machine and next time if I boot from the same machine can I force machine to boot into the D drive which has the OS media content is copied so I can launch the OS setup without (or winpe content has some application to launch) Is it possible? can you please elaborate your solution. Is the same solution is possible on a win 7 machine and also server machine which has the 2008 R2 OS installed? I have a boot manager in the machine for workstations or I can change boot sequence in the BIOS.
  9. Hi, actually I have a win 7 OS installed machine. I want to boot from a D drive by copying the winpe bootable files into D drive without formatting the hard disk or disturbing the OS in the machine. Is it possible to boot to the machine from the D drive? Is there any settings I can specify in the BIOS settings. If I check the BIOS settings, there are options like boot from DVD drive, boot from USB disk, boot from the hard disk are available. How can we do this? please help if any solution is there for this Need your help regarding this. appreciate your help in this.Thanks in advance.
