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...

05/07/2014 17:02
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.
