Add E2B to your own grub4dos USB drive
- The USB drive should not contain more than 2 primary partitions.
- Partition 4 must be empty.
- Partition 3 is used by some functions (e.g. if you use linux+persistence) and so this also should be unused.
- For best 'bootability', I recommend that the USB drive contains two Primary partitions (even if the 2nd one is very small).
- Also, ensure grub4dos is installed to both the MBR, and the PBR of the first partition.
- Ensure you are using the same version of grub4dos that E2B uses - copy the \grldr file in the E2B download to the root of your grub4dos-bootable USB drive and overwrite any older version.
- You must preserve the \_ISO folder structure used by E2B.
Using E2B features in your own grub4dos menus (not recommended)
Note: If the filename or path contains spaces, you must precede the space with a \ character, e.g. /_ISO/MAINMENU/Windows\ PE.iso
You MUST preserve the folder structure (i.e. \_ISO\e2b\grub and \_ISO\e2b\firadisk and \_ISO for CONTIG.ISO and MyE2B.cfg) and set the grub variable to _ISO/e2b/grub . You can use a different folder for %grub% as long as you only boot simple linux ISOs (not Windows or WinPE) - ALL the E2B files and folders under the grub folder must be present. I do not recommend this though and cannot support it or be held responsible for any damage to the USB drive or to system disks if you don't use the original E2B folder structure!
You can also specify a specific XML file as the second parameter - see here.
Example \menu.lst file
Transfer to a different E2B drive (DANGER!)
If you boot grub4dos from a different drive or partition, you can transfer to the E2B drive using this menu entry:
