There is an "invalid condition" error when creating ISO in ISO in the [Gena_ISO_ISO_Process] section, because the If condition has missing Equal. It should be:

If,%Gena_ISO_ISO_patch_setupldrbin_Checkbox%%Gena_ISO_ISO_CAB_compress_Checkbox%,Equal,TrueFalse,Call,Echo,"CreateISO-Gena_ISO_ISO : You must enable 'Patch setupldrbin' with 'CAB image'",Warn,,Message,,Exit

Thanks for a promotion  :smile:

However, I think I will give up on Create ISO. I spent too much time on it without any success. I haven't managed to get working WinPE with any settings.

Similarly to the BootDI thing that I mentioned before (http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=2121.msg23363#msg23363), I want to put extracted content of the resulting ISO file into the root of UFD and to boot it using grub4dos or Syslinux. Here is the grub4dos line from the project-generated menu.lst file:
chainloader /I386/SETUPLDR.BIN

Here are equivalent Syslinux lines:
  com32 chain.c32
  append boot ntldr=/I386/SETUPLDR.BIN

I tried boootsect/grub4dos, Ramdrive/Firadisk/WinVBlock and all possible options in Create ISO GUI without luck. Most of the time I get the same error during boot as before: "NTLOADER failed".

After some googling I found info that I386 folder should be used on CDs and minint on HDDs (I suppose UFDs are going into that category). Unfortunately, Create ISO has no option to specify the name of the target folder, unlike BootDI with which you could choose I386 or minint. I am not even sure if that could resolve my problem.

Could you tell me is it possible to get what I want at all or I am just wasting my time? Is there anybody who managed to boot WinPE made with Create ISO extracted to UFD?

Hi ZYX,

Here's some general information that might help you: http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=145.msg2454#msg2454

Try changing the i386 folder on your usb to minint and try booting.

Regards,

Sorry, but neither of these suggestions helped. I tried to rename I386 to minint, also tried to patch setupldr.bin, and who knows what I didn't tried in previous several days as well, but it simply doesn't work. I tried two UFDs (one is seen as USB floppy in BIOS and another as HDD), and also one USB HDD.

I gave up on Create ISO, too much trouble with it.

CreateISO is the only option I use with Gena since there is firadisk/winvblock...

I simply put Gena.iso to usb flash disk, and boot with grub4dos.

It is safe, simple and secure way I prefer.  :cool:

disk way you are looking for (copy files directly to usb), you can find some info here
http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=149
Tip: For this method better use CreateISO first. Than extract Gena.iso content to usb and do other stuff.....

Well I do not use this method since 10 years and more.... so up to you to success and provide a good step by step nice tutorial.

:turtle:
