NTBOOT allows you to add Windows 7/8/10 VHD or WIM files to an E2B menu folder and boot directly from them.
For details on how to create a VHD file, read my blog post here.
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.
After a LOT of work, I finally got these distros to boot from an E2B USB drive.
See FreeBSD page for how to do it and also the blog page here for more details.
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...
See Blog post for details of changes.
The latest E2B v1.62Beta F now supports directly booting from Haiku anyboot images.
For more details see my blog entry here.
If you want me to make a video about a certain E2B-related topic, just ask!
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...

If trying the v1.60 - please read the blog entry here first.

Otherwise you will get multiple Main menu entries!
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...
See here for changes.
The new release version is available in the Alternate download areas.
I will add it to the E2B Download page in a day or so.
Details of the changes here.
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.
This version has a few changes (CheckAccess.g4b has been tweaked) and the latest versions (at last!) of grub4dos (both 0.4.5c and 0.4.6a).
Please let me know if you experience any problems.
If you see an 'OLD GRUB4DOS VERSION' message, be sure to update the \grldr file with the version in the...
I regularly update the Alternative Download Areas (Google Drive and MS OneDrive) with the latest Beta of E2B.
Please feel free to download it and try it out. You only need to download the 8MB non-DPMS version to update your E2B drive (don't forget to update ALL files including the \grldr file).
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,
I have updated PassPass for Windows 8.1 32&64-bit.
The download is in the 'List of tested Payload Files' page here.
PassPass allows you to log in to a system's user account without needing to know the password of the user. It works by permanently patching the code in a Windows DLL file. You can...
E2B v 1.55 is almost ready for release. A Release Candidate late Beta is available in the Alternate Downloads area.
Please try it and report any problems. Changes/improvement are listed here.
I found a bug where the force.xxx feature when calling qrun.g4b no longer works. See http://www.easy2boot.com/make-an-easy2boot-usb-drive/using-e2b-with-a-zalman-ve200/ for details of this feature which allows you to override the file extension.
Some systems seems to be very slow when E2B...
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...
See blog post here
Spanish also available in E2B v1.52.
Mr Lin has translated E2B v1.51 into Chinese. The STRINGS.txt file is available from the Downloads page.
Simply extract the ZIP file directly onto your E2B drive.
To switch to Chinese you have two choices:
1. Edit the \_ISO\MyE2B.cfg file to add the line
2. Copy the...
It seems since v1.32, I have accidentally commented out a line in the XP Step 2 install code which meant that some systems failed on the 2nd boot!
This is now fixed in v1.51a.
.imgPTN is now equivalent to .imgPTNLBAa (use .imgPTNna for old .imgPTN behaviour)
\_ISO\BACKUP_LINUX folder deleted
Small changes to English STRINGS.txt
Bugfix aroung CONTIG.ISO and source ISO file size detection (failed size check if >2GB)
I have changed the Alternate Download area to use OneDrive so that people in China can access it.
If you are feeling brave - try the new version!
All menus, menu entries, information and prompts in a single STRINGS.txt file
Compatible with previous versions (except for user added .mnu files)
500MB CONTIG.ISO included in download (compressed)
If running an .imgPTN...
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...
