I hadn't any luck to boot Gena from ISO or USB (not formatted as I want to add the entry in my working 10PESE thumb drive).

Some premises:
- I've working Imdisk (checked also by its plugin)
- I've working Firadrive (but probably this need tweaks)
- I've Winvblock (I guess work simply enabling)
- No building errors
- I've followed the steps in multiboot pe1 thread
- USB drivers in build
- I know that gena should be in main path (H: in my case) but I risk to break the whole thing, as 10 use different files, and is x64
- After adjustments (providing missing files), actually boot but can't find ntoskrnl.exe (pretty sure wrong g4dos setting). Before that, I only got bsod 0x0000007 or 0x0000006, which should be missing SCSI driver error (well, I fixed that at least xD)

Various tests done:

Code: [Select]
title Gena (DirectUSB)
find --set-root /Boot/IMG/Gena/minint/setupldr.bin
chainloader /Boot/IMG/Gena/minint/setupldr.bin

title Gena (ISO)
find --set-root /Boot/IMG/Gena.iso
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
map /Boot/IMG/Gena.iso (0xFF)
map --hookroot (0xFF)
chainloader (0xFF)/I386/SETUPLDR.BIN
 
title GenaR (ISO+RAMDISK)
find --set-root /Boot/IMG/GenaR/Gena.iso
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
map /Boot/IMG/GenaR/Gena.iso (0xFF)
map --hookroot (0xFF)
chainloader (0xFF)/I386/SETUPLDR.BIN

title GenaR RAM (BOOTDI)
find --set-root /Boot/IMG/GenaR/Gena_RAM.iso
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
map /Boot/IMG/GenaR/Gena_RAM.iso (0xFF)
map --hookroot (0xFF)
chainloader (0xFF)

title GenaR from grub.lst (broken)
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
find --set-root --ignore-floppies --ignore-cd /sbin/init
configfile /Boot/IMG/GenaR/Ram/menu.lst

Hi Hadden,

*
zip distribution is quite old, first get latest project so we can match results.
-
Utils\Update Gena -> Enable - Restore Full
Utils\Update Gena -> Disable - Preserve Plugin Settings
Utils\Update Gena -> click Update button

Make sure all downloads are OK,
(tip: 2nd click Update button should result with no download no error ;) )



*
also be sure you use a short path for your extracted folder
ex:
D:\Oven

*****
After Update:

*
See
Utils\Download Source
follow Steps 1 2 3

*
After you make a default build,
with Gena.iso available,
WriteMedia\Tutorial Gena Disk Boot --> Read ME --> will provide you a tutorial and tools (bootice, grub) tested and working

tip:
after first build, 2nd 3rd.. builds are faster.  :wink:



****
A week ago I create a Gena.iso for my small usb flash disk following tutorial (with menu.lst provided),
 Gena.iso boot fine here with Asus N56V (i7) , my windows gpt disk is also accessible.

Bios: secure boot disabled // csm enabled // --> boot with F2 key by selecting usb.

Hi Hadden,

Good news  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Starts from ~50 mb with Explorer shell  :great:

 Gena.iso boot fine here with Asus N56V (i7) , my windows gpt disk is also accessible.

Bios: secure boot disabled // csm enabled // --> boot with F2 key by selecting usb.

my Gena.iso with 2k3x86 is 1.24 GB,
 keeping all rescue stuff safe out of sight inside Gena.iso  :wink:
    booting fine on my usb flash disk  :great:

Reminding: you can update all projects with Utils\Update XXX (Exact and Secure) -> "Update" button

Hello
I´ll check.
But this week I am on a business trip in Belgium. I do not know if I´ll find time for testing.

Could Gena boot laptops with UEFI and Secure Boot Option?

Edit: Does Gena contain also actual drivers for HDD and SDD which are usually used by actual laptops?

Yes / NO
NO:
UEFI and Secure Boot Option enabled on bios
YES:
as written on previous post:
Bios: secure boot disabled // csm enabled // --> boot with F2 key by selecting usb.

as written on previous post:
Gena.iso boot fine here with Asus N56V (i7) , my windows gpt disk is also accessible.




Edit: Does Gena contain also actual drivers for HDD and SDD which are usually used by actual laptops?
HDD yes
SDD I do not know,
Gena add drivers following DPs packages, I do not know SSD or its drivers or if they are included in DPs mass storage.
...
In the end of the day, with SSD driver for XP/2k3 , it should be easy.

After you practice with Gena you will get better picture  :wink:
