03 - How to install Windows XP from a bootable USB drive. 30 - How to install XP onto a Hard Disk from an XP ISO on a bootable USB drive.
The new.isoDOS file extension that is recognised by Easy2Boot v1.17 and later versions, allows you to boot a DOS-based bootable ISO and access all the files on the CD-ROM portion of the ISO from DOS. It does this by making an empty virtual drive in memory and copying the contents of the ISO into it (under grub4dos) before it boots to DOS. DOS can then access the files on this virtual drive.
This method almost worked with a Windows 98SE Install ISO that I had. There were a few problems however. First, there were just too many files inside the ISO for the grub4dos environment to enumerate! To fix this I simply deleted the unneeded folders from the Win98 ISO and just left the Win98 folder inside the ISO file plus the [BOOT] folder (required for floppy-emulation booting) and the files that were in the root of the ISO (like Setup.exe). This reduced the ISO to 180MB. The second problem was that the first disk drive seen by MS-DOS and the Windows 98 Setup install process was my E2B Flash drive.
So when I tried to install Win98, it kindly made the 2nd FAT partition which I happened to have on my USB flash drive, active and put the DOS boots files on it! It still booted to the internal hard disk, but only when I booted from my USB drive! To fix this, E2B v1.18 will now recognise the new.isoDOS01 file extension.
This does the same thing as.isoDOS but swaps over the USB flash drive with the internal hard disk so that DOS sees the internal hard disk as the first hard disk. So, in summary, to get a bootable Win98SE Install ISO working with E2B (even an NTFS USB E2B drive), do the following: 1. Remove all extra folders from the ISO (just leave the Win98 folder and the files in the root). Rename the iso to.isoDOS01 3. Use Easy2Boot v1.18 or later (it will be available in a few days.)

Update - Alternate Method This method uses a. File but we do not switch to it, we just map it as a large floppy disk image! Note: If you prefer, you can use ImDisk to make a large floppy disk image, rather than use MakePartImage. Adobe Bridge Cc Keygen Mac. Drag-and-Drop the Win98/ME ISO onto the MPI_FAT32 Desktop shortcut.
Add at least 10MB to the default size as we are going to add some files to it and Windows Setup may also need temporary space. Copy the.imgPTN file to _ISO DOS MNU on your E2B USB drive (any menu folder will work except for _ISO WINDOWS aaaa folders).
Use Switch_E2B.exe to 'switch in' the _ISO DOS MNU Win98.imgPTN file 3. Use 7Zip to open the Win98.ISO file and double-click [ BOOT] and then the Boot-1.44M.img file - you should see the DOS boot files (including IO.SYS). Extract all the DOS boot files to the root of the USB drive (which should be in the CSM mode). Note: If you cannot see a e2b folder in the root, then you did not do Step 2 correctly! Use Switch_E2B.exe to Restore E2B Partitions on the USB drive to get our E2B partition(s) back. Make a new _ISO DOS MNU Win98.mnu file with the following contents: title Install Windows 98 using.imgPTN file n Install Win98 map $HOME$/Win98_SE.imgPTN (fd0) map (hd1) (hd0) map --hook #set just one HDD and one floppy map --harddrives=1 map --floppies=1 root (fd0) chainloader /IO.SYS This can be found in the _ISO docs Sample mnu Files Windows folder on later versions of E2B. E2B v1.77+ now supports the.
Imafdhdd0 file extension which does the same as above, so just rename the.imgPTN file to.imafdhdd0 (and no need for a.mnu file). Boot from E2B and choose the DOS Install Windows 98 menu entry. Choose the MS-DOS 'no CDROM support' option At the A: prompt, run FDISK and set up a FAT partition on your C: drive (IDE hard disk) with an Active boot flag. Reboot to E2B and re-run the DOS Win98 menu At the A: prompt type CD WIN98 ENA (or whatever folder the correct Setup.exe file is in and FORMAT.COM - the one in the root may not work!) FORMAT C: /Q MKDIR A: TEMP (may not be required) SETUP (skip the 'create floppy startup disk' option but don't cancel it or Setup will quit!) Tips: If testing on a VM, configure an IDE virtual disk in a Win98 VM and disable VT-x AMD-V (at least for the Setup process). Do not configure more than 900MB of RAM or Win98 may crash!
Windows can be expensive so finding a place to download an older operating system like Windows Me for free is an enticing thought. Pretty much everything is available on the Internet for free, right? Answer: There are several places online to download Windows Me but none of them are legal. Windows Me is not distributed online so there is no legitimate way to download Windows Me, even from Microsoft. No matter where you find it, any Windows Me download you find online is illegal. The only legal course of action when you need a copy of Windows Me is to actually buy a new copy of Windows Me.
It's that simple. It's important to note as well that even if you did download Windows Me, what you would get is an image of the Windows Me Setup CD.
For example, you would probably download an like windows-me.iso, or something like that. You would then that you would then use to install Windows Me. Note: If you actually do have a Windows Me CD but you're looking for your product key, there is a way to find it. See for easy instructions. If you do in fact have your Windows Me product key but you're missing your Setup CD, you could argue that, since you did actually purchase Windows Me and you have a valid product key, downloading a Windows Me CD image from anywhere should be within your rights.

I would suggest contacting Microsoft for a replacement Windows Me Setup CD, assuming you can show proof of purchase. However, since Windows Me is a retired operating system, you have trouble doing that.
