Hi
The first entry you have is Hard Disk Sentinel for DOS. So copy the ISO to the \_ISO\MAINMENU and boot to E2B and try it. It will appear in the Main Menu is 'hdsdos' but you can change the file name to 'Hard Disk Sentinel (DOS).iso if you like. If you want it in the Utilities menu, then just copy the ISO to \_ISO\UTILITIES.
If you want it to be listed as the first entry, name it aaa_hdsdos.iso. Entries are listed alphabetically by file name.
Now to change the entry text and also add the lines of help text under the menu when you select it, create a aaa_hdsdos.txt file using \_ISO\Txt_Maker.exe.
The next item you have is a blank line, so copy "\_ISO\docs\Sample mnu files\E2B Menus\A_BlankMenuEntry.mnu"
to \_ISO\MAINMENU folder and rename it as aab_blank.mnu.
The next item you have is Acronis True Image 2018. So copy the .ISO file to \_ISO\MAINMENU and name it aba_Acronis2018.iso. Then make a aba_Acronis2018.txt file for it.
Rinse and repeat...
For some of the other items, e.g. Antivirus, backup, Windows Install, just copy the ISOs to the correct E2B menu folders.

The other alternative is to simply use your current menu.lst file. Copy your menu to \_ISO\MAINMENU and name it 'Batfink Menu.mnu'. Edit it to remove the initial grub4dos lines so it starts with 'title xxxx' and all the following entries. Copy your ISOs to the correct folders on the E2B drive as expected by your menu.

You can always start a chat session with me if you have any problems. There should be a chat icon pop-up on this page.
