Grub2 Beta 7 menu system (fixes bug in Beta 6)

25/03/2017 13:53
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.   This is...

22/08/2016 10:13
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.

22/08/2016 10:07

New grub2 menu system for UEFI-booting

22/05/2016 13:48
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...

XMLtoE2B

27/05/2015 10:41
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...
