Ok, thanks. Obviously, it will be safest to do the scanning for the wanted drive without relaying on the result of ExpEnvVar scan.

If you use grub4dos to boot a GENA ISO and you get the "Error: no tag file found" message it could be due to grub4dos.

I was using v 0.4.6a 2016-12-24 of grub4dos on one of my systems and got that error. In fact GENA could not read the contents of the WinPE (CD) drive - it said unrecognised file system. I could not understand why. It worked OK on another system. Then it occured to me it might be grub4dos. When I installed grub4dos-0.4.5c-2016-01-18 it worked OK.

In fact the problem I mentioned here : http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=2164.0 might also be due to that.

grub4dos download : http://grub4dos.chenall.net/downloads/grub4dos-0.4.5c-2016-01-18/

Hi gbrao,

As you already know, In order to get Gena.iso (CreateISO) boot with grub4dos,
2 ways are, you need firadisk or winvblock
Gena\Drivers\5 Ramdisk\"FiraDisk"
Gena\Drivers\5 Ramdisk\"WinVBlock"

on other topic, you seem to use "FiraDisk" ,
test Gena.iso (CreateISO) with "WinVBlock" with  v0.4.6a 2016-12-24 of grub4dos
let us know how it goes ?

Used Create ISO. These plugins:
 ila_rendered

G4D menu :
ila_rendered


System Intel Haswell + Z87.

g4d 4.6a and no usb thumb drive attached - BSOD 7B
g4d 4.6a and usb thumb drive attached - BSOD 7B


g4d 4.5c and no usb  thumb drive attached - boots OK
g4d 4.5c and usb  thumb drive attached (first boot after starting up system) : BSOD 7F
g4d 4.5c and usb  thumb drive attached (subsequent start ups) : boots OK.


That is, if the system was shut down and then I start it up and try to boot from the ISO with a UFD attached  I get a BSOD.
But the system was booted OK from another windows or pe, then I restart the system and try to boot the ISO with a UFD attached , then it works OK.
Both the above with g4d 4.5c.

One by one:
Following topic, when you use CreateISO + grub4dos + isoboot , with a successful boot, you do not have "Error: no tag file found" anymore?

then you fix the error you have.  :thumbsup:

Further:
For SE or Gena, when you boot with from .iso (via grub4dos, grub, isolinux etc.) you need to provide an ini file
See topic:
http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=346
For Gena see reply1
