I have built a CD with 98SE Ar, Me Ar and Me English which can boot and install any one of these options unattended. I have also another option with the same CD + Floppy bootable, that let me fdisk and format + install any one of the 3 OSes unattended, even the fdisk and format are unattended , you just have to remove the Floppy after setup is done. To boot form HDD

why not zip the files for each OS and include the old pkunzip.exe (older dudes know what I mean.) Then write a batch file that will unzip the OS of choice in a pre-defined directory, then it would be a matter of writing another batch file that will clean up the (pre-defined) temp directory afterwards. It would be easy to make a keypad driven menu, you know "press 1 for SE, press 2 for ME" etc. Everybody should learn how to write batch files, they are soooo easy, and ever so handy.

I followed the mulit 2k os way when posted almost a year ago.
i then added 98se and me.
i then added the boot floppy image that was suggested on Bart's page.

to install 2k i just choose install from the diskem1x
to install win98/me i just loaded the boot.img
after there i kept typing the regular cd command to find my drive with fdisk which was a:
i then used it to partition my hdd i wanted
then used FORMAT to format it and it was all over.

that is all you have to do...note there is now a way to have it done all for you but i like to have more control than that..
if you want you can do it either way...aslong as you have the boot.img(win98/me boot floopy image) on the cd with it you can do it no matter what.
editing the config.sys and autoexec.bat are optional...it can be done both ways
if you don't want to edit them it takes like a whole extra 5-10seconds to do it.
aslong as you know how to install 9x/me your ok. if you don't then doing it either way might me a task.
to install 9x/me is what i think most people are having problems with.
to do that all you have to do is load your boot.img, then type FDISK and follow the onscreen instructions. You want to delete all current partitions(this is optional however). Then you must create a PRIMARY DOS paritition. After that reboot. After reboot and back to the bootmenu reload your boot.img again but this time since you have already partitioned choose to format. Do that by typing FORMAT C: or whatever the drive letter is you wnat to format. After you have formatted you can run SETUP. To do that cd to the dir that your win9x/me install files are in and just type SETUP.

If you have more problems then it's user (your's) related.

That is how i did it and that is all that needs to be done ever when install 9x/me. You must follow the guide on how to make it multi with 2k/xp however for you must edit the .dat and the txtsetup.sif file.

hope that helps

It was real hard to make the format and fdisk unattended and independent of the size of the hdd for those who think to use fdisk 0 /PRI:xxx command!. And the format of a new HDD with unallocated space is also not this easy.
The installation for win9x is very easy. I created six entires in the config,sys menu ( this was the max number of entries I think), upon start up you choose which option u want, then I access the CDROM drive through autoexec, create a windowsoptionscabs directory on the c drive, copy the required files from the CD and then use setup to install windows. Of course of the copied filed there is a msbatch.inf file that holds all the answers...the whole process to explain will be very long...so clearify the points u need.

Hi,
I try to do a multiboot Win9x step by step like it says in www.tech-hints.com and it's all ok, but who do i burn the cd in NERO 5.5?
I put the setings ISO (with all files visible) and floppy emulation 1.44 and the iso image that i made and all others files in the root of the cd, but the machine does not boot from it.(the bios is set to boot from cd)
Help me please.
Thank you

first extract the boot sector from your orginal disc in let's say cdrwin. choose at the top extract sector's..(you'll find the screen in the same spot where you can extract to a .bin/.cue). this will work in the demo mode aswell. in cdrwin 4.0 or lower (get it at www.goldenhawk.com) (im using 3.9A btw). Install then choose the middle selection on top (Extract Disc/Tracks/Sectors). In there choose/toggle "Select Sectors". There in the Datatype pulldown and select "Data Mode 1 RAW (2352). Then select in "Sector Selection" for start to be 20 and end to be 20. After there you have extract sector 20. Ok in nero open it up, on the left choose "CD-ROM (Boot). Select/toggle "Image file" Then Browse to the sector20.bin or whatever you named it and select that. (you might have to rename it from .bin to .img...either way it works ive done it). Now in the ISO tab choose ISO Level 2 and Mode 1 and Joliet...leave the rest as default...then you can drag over your file's like normal and burn. That is the long way though..if you make the image with M$'s CDIMAGE then all you have to do is select Burn Image from the file menu in nero and burn it. That is the only way you can do it if you have all 3 winwk's due to the linking that CDIMAGE does for you.

btw if you don't figure out how to extract sector 20 then i don't know if the below can help but why not....just copy over only the text from the below and paste it into a new text file. then import that text in a hex editor...i used Hex Workshop to make this btw...do not copy over any blank spaces'...NONE.

I'm sorry for the quick posting...delete that last one..i was thinking in a different mode :-). Copy the below here into a new text file...only the text no space's...and rename the .txt to whatever you want...for example in Hex Workshop (and most in the world) you would rename it to .hex. So rename the .txt to .hex and import it....remember only the data and no space's

Hey, if you already have that in a text file, just attach it to the post...there's a space at the end of each line right now, and it'd take forever for someone to take all those out

O man im sooo sorry..im really strung out on C++ right now and can't think straight...the space's at the end of each line is ok. Atleast in Hex Workshop since it's been exported to a .hex that way it will import it that way. It's work's because that is what i have for the sector..i don't actually keep the sector20.bin file just that .hex file.

btw how do you attach a file..do i have to due i have to type in my ip and then the path from the modem? That make's now sense and probably wouldn't even work but im not too sure how to

do i have to register??? You know it's been over a year now and i have not had to register yet..btw i thank you for not requiring a register. You obvious know that alot of people that could help might just be too lazy to register and not post.

I don't think it is possible to have such an option, but for our purposes we don't care . A win2000 setup will run fine from a win9x boot disk. But to incorporate a native 2000 and a dos boot disk together is not possible as far as I know. The files in 2000 are more than a floppy disk can handle. So stick with a bootable 98 and use the batch file to launch winnt.exe unattended.txt command.
U have to look for a utility in 2000 resource kit that will generate for u the unattended.txt file.
There is also a utility in the win9x resource kit that will generate the msbatch.inf file.
U will have to look for them.
2000 and XP true bootable CD is also not possible in my opinion because of differences in the booting files and process. I may be mistaken but prove that I am wrong!

Hi,
you say "extract the boot sector from your orginal disc", but what disc do you meen?
in this case i have two original discs, Windows 98 and Windows Me.
And when i get the boot sector, how can i do to put all the other stuf (unattended, ext).
I meen, i was try to do it with the Diskemu program like in www.tech-hints.com.

I mean the orginal 2k disc if you have one..

the post before the last one on here had the hex for the boot sector of a NT5 disc(2k/xp).

if you copy all that hex reference the

:blahblahblh
:blahbalhb
:blahbl

copy all that..paste it into a text file and import that into a hex editor there you will see load the boot sector...at the end you will see the BIN that you can edit. After that save the file as sector20.dat and choose to use that in cdimage.

if you mean just a 98x/me disc well that is easy because all you need is a 98 boot floppy image.

any more ? than that im a bit confused

Diskem1x is a boot manager more or less. that lets you boot any disc if your bios can boot from a disc. after booting that disc you can type q to escape to command prompt then RUN SECTOR20.DAT and it will start the 2k/xp setup. Or you can type RUN 98BOOTIM.IMG (or .IMA or whatever) and then it would start the 98 boot floopy. it can RUN any uncompressed image's as if your computer was booting from a real floopy or disc

you can of course make a menu in there too editing the .cmd and make it more user friendly but you don't have too. I have made several image's where i tangled up the .CMD menu options so i have to escape to command prompt and RUN.

after booting the disc off diskem1x.bin, then running, let's say a 98BOOTIM.IMG your cdrom is usually D:. you can ofcourse set this to whatever you want but that is it usually unless you edited yourself.

I just read your post again about a true xp 2k boot cd not being possible...what do you mean?

it is all allocated through plain text in certain text files what goes where. In 2k/xp its the txtsetup.sif..in 9x i can't remember what it is.

you can do whateve you want.

also what is at hand here is using diskem1x.bin. this can run boot.img's up to 2.88 so your right a actual image of 2x install disk's is not possible. would of been if he had added the hot swap floopy option but unfortunately development stoped right before that option was incorporated.

anyhow that is not need either. the sector of a 2k/xp install disc comes from the 20th sector on the orginal 2k/xp disc. You can however copy and paste my above post of the sector in hex and import that into a hexeditor and edit the part about .BINI386 to whatever you want. Like .BINMOSS (Multi OS setup) and have that point to whatever directory contains the setup files. to get those setup files you ahve to extract all the boot floopies for the 2k/xp setup toa director. Then you edit inside there the txtsetup.sif file to point to the directory conataing the actual 2k/xp setup. in other words the root directory containing the i386 folder. which would most likely be for win2k pro UENGLISHWPR.

whatever...it is all relevant to a text file somewhere...actual boot/setup floopies are NOT needed with the diskem1x.bin.

this has all been panned out atleast 2 times in the multi os thread located here that has been viewed more than 150,000 times. It actually starts out on the topice and solves the issue...then spreads into hot fix's and zhit like that....and starts all over again like nobody even read the first 20 page's of it and just repeated the same ?'s over and over again. Like a loop was stuck in the post and there was never a IF statement to escape the loop.

READ the first 20 page's of that thread or better yet the entire thing if you have any more ?'s because this all was covered in that thread.

don't ask how to choose a setup directory in winxp either...it's not possible without the help of a OEM disc that is rare or a 32bit win enviroment to start the install from....so don't bother on that.

Hi,
First, i want to make a question,i have win2k with SP 1 integreted, its make eny diferent to have the boot sector that you post to me here and the boot sector that y realy have in my CD?
Second,
My real and only problem, is that i have build a ISO image that contains tree IMA images one for DOS, one for Win98, and one that i'm going to do with the boot sector and everithing of win2k and the diskemu1x.bin, loader.bin (files downloaded for www.tech-hints.com) and instalation files of the win98 and win2k.
Then i build the iso image with Cdimage.
The problem is that i can't burn right the iso image.
I had try the image in Virtulal PC and it works OK.
But at the time of the burn does not work.
Y had try in NERO 5.5 like you say (File menu / Burn Image) but it does not work.
Y had try only with win98 and DOS ima Images (in a ISO image) first to try and in Virtual PC works, but not when i burn it.
Thanks.

Ok Ok.

First why are making a floppy image of the 2k install disk's?? like i said you don't need to in fact if CAN'T. All the floppy image's for a 2k/xp install won't fit in the maximum file size for a floppy image (2.88MB) in diskem1x. Like i said above aswell.


Second why are you making a floppy for 98 and dos aswell?Ok my guess might be that you do what i do and make a MS-DOS 6.22 image and a 98 (MS-DOS 7.1) floppy image. In this case you have to do that because 98, to my knowledge, will not format a FAT16 file system so you have to have the 6.22 FORMAT. If this is not the case, and you don't want DOS 6.22, then you can use the same one for 98 and DOS. To do this you would enable a timeout or choice method in your autoexec.bat so that you would have a certain amount of time to press some button or you would proceed after a timeout into a 98 install setup. You coulde even with the CHOICE option disable the timeout and make the user type a key to choose wether or not he wanted to boot to a 98 install or just to command prompt. 98 supports the CHOICE method. Here's a actual example that would work if your naming scheme is the same. This would give you 9 seconds to choose a option or it would timeout and choose :install which is the win98 setup

@echo off
echo.
echo.
echo Please press i to begin windows 98se setup
echo Or press q to quit to command prompt
echo
echo

choice "Install 98se or go to command prompt?" /cqi /tn,9
If errorlevel 2 goto install
If errorlevel 1 goto cmd

:install
d:UENGLISHWIN98SESETUP.EXE
goto end

:cmd
goto end

:end


Keep in mind you'll probably want to partition with FDISK and run FORMAT.COM first before install win98se.

You might want to call this .bat file even...most likely not though.


here is the cmd line in cdimage i run in my cdimage.bat file to make the image. NOTE: you have to of course change it so it match's your directories.

j:cdimage -lLuciusxoOS -t05/15/2001,12:00:00 -g -h -n -o -w1 -m -bJ:LOADER.BIN j:ROOT x:freaky.iso

Three. About that post above about the .hex file with the

:blah
:blah
:blah
:all the way down to the end.

This is the hex for sector 20 out of a winnt5.x (to date) REAL cd. Like the kind you bought or whatever. You can extract it or just copy the first line in the above post to the last line...paste it into a .txt file, rename it to a .hex file and import it in any hex program...i use Hex Workshop myself since it was the first i used and most comfortable with. (It's old though might not be as good as the newer ones...i think the last update to Hex Workshop might of been like 3 years ago or something).

Four. Ahead's Nero 5.5. I don't know. If i do like i said and goto file, burn image that work's for me. With the image that i create with CDIMAGE by running that command line it has burned it right from 5.0 and above. I never tried in 4.x...although i would love to have my hands on a copy Nero 4.x demo for it's the last version to have a complete, actually any, documentation on it's cmd line switch's.

Side note if you can find the cmd switch reference for 5.x i would love that because i cant' track it down worth zhit.

If you use the cmd line for CDIMAGE that i use and it still does not work...in this case it might very well be your burner not supporting something. I use the default option's Nero gives,gave me ( I use discjuggler now...hand's down the most POWERFULL software out there...cdrwin is good too). All the defaults it load's after i choose my freak.iso is what i use. I don't change anything. I do make sure however that

YOU CHOOSE DAO not TAO...track at once...and it might not work. (DAO96 if possible...that's what i use but i also have used the plain DAO)
