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.
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...
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.
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...
v1.73 now includes the new Switch_E2B.exe Windows app, a new grub4dos 0.4.6a version, Dutch and Swedish languages and a few other tweaks!
Many thanks must go to the DavidS and JeroenM for making the new language files.
You can easily make and add an unattend XML file to E2B so that it will automatically install Windows 7/8/8.1 from an ISO in MBR mode (or .imgPTN file for both MBR and UEFI systems).
First you create a basic AutoUnattend.xml file using the Windows Answer File Generator, then you use...
Please try the .cfg file editor E2B_Editor.exe and let me have your feedback.
Check the Alternate Downloads Area for the latest version and copy the .exe file to your E2B \_ISO folder.
E2B v1.66 will include the released version.
This will suggest a better, alternative file extension if it thinks that .ISO may not work correctly. You can accept the suggested alternative and it will run the .ISO file as if it had the suggested alternative file extension (or run it as .ISO).
Also I have added latest grub4dos 0.4.6a which has...
The new v1.62 Beta A version now supports true hiding and unhiding of FAT16/FAT32/exFAT/NTFS partitions so that they are not accessible to Windows until unhidden, but they are still accessible to grub4dos (and the files inside). For more info see here.
It also includes the lates tversion of...
With thoughts for the terrible suffering of all the ebola victims in Africa and their families and friends, I have now given the E2B site donations from last month (October 2014) to the DEC ebola fund. Thank you to anyone who had donated to this site last month - I hope you will feel that...
I should be able to release the 1.56a version soon, as it seems chenall has managed to fix the rather tricky problems that previous versions had.
Please test the 1.56aBeta version and let me know if you find any problems.
