Run several OS setups from one DVD
==============================================

I have seen in several posts,requesting about having windowses vista and
windows xp setups together.this is easy job,because most of the process needed
to do is writed in EasyBoot help file.and we need just some considerations
for using windows vista.

Any way I have tested operating systems below:

Windows vista (I tested by vista home lite version 2).
Windows XP sp2 Origional English
Windows XP sp2 Customized


Step_1:
=======  

1. Copy All contents of you Vista bootable DVD (or CD for lite version) to
...EasyBoot\disk1 directory.

2. Make directories below in ...EasyBoot\disk1 directory:

...EasyBoot\disk1\SYS
...EasyBoot\disk1\SYS\XPEN
...EasyBoot\disk1\SYS\MYXP

3. Copy all contents of "Windows XP sp2 Origional English" to
...EasyBoot\disk1\SYS\XPEN

4. Copy all contents of "Windows XP sp2 Customized" to
...EasyBoot\disk1\SYS\MYXP

5. Copy files below from One of XP CDs to ...EasyBoot\disk1\ Directory (you will
need to copy  other files too if you want to have win 2000 or 2003 setups too):

WIN51
WIN51IP
WIN51IP.SP1
WIN51IP.SP2


Step_2:
=======

1_ Make another directory by the name of "XPEN" inside ...EasyBoot\disk1\
directory and Copy just "I386" Directory of "Windows XP sp2 Origional English" CD  
inside it.

2_ Make another directory by the name of "MYXP" inside ...EasyBoot\disk1\
directory and Copy just "I386" Directory of "Windows XP sp2 Customized" CD inside it.

3_ Copy "wxp.bat" from ...\EasyBoot\resource directory to
...EasyBoot\disk1\XPEN directory an run it.after a while you will have
some other files and directories inside ...EasyBoot\disk1\XPEN directory
Now you can delete "i386" directory from ...EasyBoot\disk1\XPEN directory.

4_ Do just as above for ...EasyBoot\disk1\MYXP directory then delete "i386"
directory from ...EasyBoot\disk1\MYXP directory.

5. Make two copies from ...\EasyBoot\disk1\ezboot\w2ksect.bin in this directory then
rename one of the copies to "XPEN.BIN" and other to "MYXP.BIN"


Step_3
========

If we burn our DVD just by files above,it will not be bootable,because files are not placed
in standard format.so We need to edit few files in "BOOT" directory ,to say to system,where
to find boot files for each windows and how to run them.

1_ Open ...\EasyBoot\disk1\ezboot\XPEN.BIN by your favorite hex editor,Search for string
  "i386" on it and replace all instances by the word "XPEN".and save it.
 
2_ Do the same process by file ...\EasyBoot\disk1\XPEN\SETUPLDR.BIN and save that.

3_ Open ...\EasyBoot\disk1\XPEN\TXTSETUP.SIF" by notepad, search for "SetupSourcePath" section,
you will see that it is as:

SetupSourcePath = "\"

change that to:

SetupSourcePath = "\SYS\XPEN"


4_ Do the same processES 1 TO 3 for "Windows XP sp2 Customized" ,just use string "MYXP" in
hex editing and address below:

SetupSourcePath = "\SYS\MYXP"


You should Do the same process if you want to have other windowses,Just note that:

Step_4
========

iN eASYbOOT USE COMMANDS BELOW:

(FOR SETUP OF WINDOWS VISTA)-->run vistaldr.bin  
(FOR SETUP OF WINDOWS XP ORIG)-->run XPEN.BIN
(FOR SETUP OF WINDOWS XP CUSTOMIZED)-->run MYXP.BIN

======================
Notes:
=======
1.I used HexEdit for editing BIN files and used XPEN and MYXP (Uppercase) in them.

2.I have named All folders in Disk1 in Uppercase (i mean MYXP,SYS,XPEN folders and also SYS\MYXP and SYS\XPEN)

=============================
THATA ALL,I checked it by vmware was OK.

Thanks a lot from balder that helped me a lot and taught me a lot in this tutor

1.I have tested this method many many times and the burned dvd's are are
used with a lot of my friends for a long time.

2.When making project Do step by step,and check step by step,in virtual machin.

3.I think you have some mistakes in editing BIN files and TXTSETUP.SIF

4.Please try again ,do first OS ,check it,then proced to other

About WinXP…

It’s not only an issue if “ident files” (tag files) has been copied to the “main root” (EasyBoot\disk1). It’s a issue if “ident files” (tag files) has been copied to the “second root”, witch in your tutorial is EasyBoot\disk1\SYS
In fact, it’s impossible that your tutorial works as there are mistakes involved into it :O

To @mahdi and @Mega_num
How did you have success with a tutorial that doesn’t work ???

Why not use original tutorial in EasyBoot help file together with tutorials originally written by xoben :;):

please first try that then give answers like this.

it is not important for me what you said to me,but you have
do that by other users too "mahdi and mega.."

@madar

In Step_2:

I quote from point 2:” Make another directory by the name of "MYXP" inside ...EasyBoot\disk1\
directory and Copy just "I386" Directory of "Windows XP sp2 Customized" CD inside it.”
This is correct :;):

I quote from point 3:” Copy "wxp.bat" from ...\EasyBoot\resource directory to
...EasyBoot\disk1\SYS\XPEN directory an run it.after a while you will have
some other files and directories inside ...EasyBoot\disk1\SYS\XPEN directory
Now you can delete "i386" directory from ...EasyBoot\disk1\SYS\XPEN directory.”
This is not correct :O

I suggest you change tutorial to… “Copy "wxp.bat" from ...\EasyBoot\resource directory to
...EasyBoot\disk1\XPEN directory….”
In this way you create the necessary boot folder (XPEN in this example) that’s needed. Don’t you agree with me ???

This is needed as you in step3 (I quote):
“1_ Open ...\EasyBoot\disk1\ezboot\XPEN.BIN by your favorite hex editor,Search for string
 "i386" on it and replace all instances by the word "XPEN".and save it.” This is correct.

By the way…Why not use EasyBoot>Tools>Replace text instead of external hex editor as this is far more easier for new users :;):

@madar (Shirin Zaban) I do like (respect) you tutorial but only if they works.
In fact plenty of your ideas are brilliant :cool:  and very useful but as I pointed out… this tutorial cant work as there are some problems to solve. And again I must repeat that you need ident files (tag files) at the “second root” witch is another problem with your tutorial.

2. at the time after replaying you i did test again my project it worked

3.you are right ,in tutor i have a mistake as below:

"After using wxp.bat the i386 directories below should be deleted

..disk1\xpen\i386
and
..disk1\myxp\i386

not  (...disk1\Sys\xpen\i386 and ..disk1\Sys\myxp\i386)

Your “second root” is EasyBoot\disk1\sys

You have changed this here: SetupSourcePath = "\SYS\XPEN"
You need to copy ident files (tag files) to folder EasyBoot\disk1\sys
Don’t you agree ???
