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...

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).

11/09/2014 09:22
The new version of grub4dos in v1.56 (2014-09-08) seems to have a problem when installing XP (the grub4dos fat utility no longer works). I have withdrawn v1.56 until chenall can fix the problem with the new grub4dos,

E2B v1.53

15/07/2014 16:55
There was a problem that if you made your E2B USB drive using the Make_E2B_USB_Drive.cmd file it installed a slightly different version of the grub4dos MBR code which was then not recognised by E2B if you tried to run a .imgPTN file. You would receive an 'ERROR: No Grub4dos installed to the MBR of...

24/06/2014 13:57
I am working on a new version of E2B that will have a STRINGS.TXT file which will contain the words displayed by E2B batch files and menus, etc. This will mean that to change language, you just need to add the one language folder to your E2B drive and add a \_ISO\MyE2B.cfg file e.g. To convert E2B...
