Recommended Posts

Hello , I m newbie and i would like to know if there is any possiblitiy of adding splash image to my isolinux menu just like cdshell or easyboot shows at the start of booting the cd/dvd.

I already have built my own multiboot dvd containing the following:

1. XP SP2
2. XP SP3
3. UBUNTU
4. Active Boot Disk
5. ERD Commander 2007
6. Parted Magic
7. Paragon Partition Manager v9
8. Acronis TrueImage and Partition Manager
9. Spinrite
10. Memtest
+ LiveXP

Once i add this splash image i m done ;)

EnLi

replace menu.c32 with vesamenu.c32 and add the MENU BACKGROUND option.

DEFAULT vesamenu.c32
PROMPT 0
MENU TITLE openSUSE 10.2
MENU BACKGROUND os102.png

Hi bj-kaiser , sorry but you got me wrong.

I already know those entries what i m trying to achive is to have a "full screen splash" just like default untweaked cdshell shows when you boot from it. I should have explicitly mentioned it before. So is this possible ?

you could try this:

in isolinux.cfg:


PROMPT 0
TIMEOUT 500
DISPLAY displayfile
DEFAULT mymenu

LABEL mymenu
KERNEL vesamenu/menu.c32
APPEND bootmenu.cfg

displayfile:

<FF>  <FF>
<CAN>splash image file<newline>

the <>-enclosed values are control characters, read the syslinux documentation for that.

You have to convert the image to a special format, LSS16, see the docs for details.

now put your existing menu configuration into bootmenu.cfg.

and if I'm not totally wrong, that should be it.

The answer below had it MOSTLY right...here's what works...

UI /boot/syslinux/vesamenu.c32
TIMEOUT 15
MENU BACKGROUND /boot/isolinux/ScottLogo.png
MENU AUTOBOOT
MENU TABMSG
MENU HIDDEN

LABEL -
KERNEL /boot/syslinux/config.c32
APPEND /boot/syslinux/syslinux2.cfg

Make sure to use current syslinux or isolinux version of vesamenu.C32, etc. Turn off the default messages for auto booting and tab, HIDE the rest of the blank menu to avoid the lines, then after the delay, it will restart with your "REAL" config file. (adjust names as appropriate)...
