It seems there were still some bugs in the latest version of grub4dos which was included in E2B v1.91, and 1.91A.
Please use v1.91B (you can use the Update E2B button to quickly update your drive).
The Grub2 Beta 6 release had a bug and you may find some payload files were not listed in the menu.
This was due to the code which detects a 64-bit CPU having a bug - the BIT64 variable was never set! For example, \_ISO\MAINMENU\ubuntu.iso would not be displayed in the menu.
v 1.88 is available from the Alternate Downloads Areas and will be available on the Downloads page on this site in a few days.
Fix typo in SDI_CHOCO which caused pause with scrolllock.exe and capslock.exe error messages.
Improve linux fmt.sh scripts to install grub4dos to PBR and make partition active using parted.
Latest grub4dos 0.4.6a.
Snappy updated to R513.
Persistent sample .mnu files...
You can now bypass Windows local account passwords using the version of PassPass in E2B v1.87.
By looking at the hits I get on the LatestE2B.txt file which is only fetched from the E2B website when the MAKE_E2B_USB_DRIVE.cmd script is run, I can see that over 30 days, there were 31K hits. This averages out to over 1000 E2B drives being made every day.
This new version allows you to create ext3 and ext4 persistence files, as well as ext2 files.
I recommend ext3, because ext2 persistence files seem to get easily corrupted.
SDI_CHOCO is my name for the added scripts which will run Snappy Driver Installer, Chocolatey and WSUS offline updater when installing Windows 7/8.1/10.
A new \_ISO\WINDOWS\INSTALLS folder has been added for this feature.
This means that you can just copy any Windows 7/8/10 Install ISO onto the E2B...
E2B uses grub4dos but it can only be booted via the old BIOS\MBRCSM\Legacy type of system. However, you can both MBR-boot and UEFI-boot to grub2.
The advantage of this is that you can directly UEFI-boot to many ISOs that do not normally support UEFI-booting!
The disadvantage, is that each distro...
v1.78 had a few unofficial releases (1.78A, B and C). So I decided to release v1.79 before 'officially' releasing v1.78.
