Hi huisinro,

Thanks for the new release. Here is my report.

When the Windows 2000 installer starts, I hit F6 to mount the virtual floppy. I am able to select and format the virtual partition ( win2000.img \ raw image ) but setup stops with the following message ( Translated to English )

Code:

Insert the floppy labelled Vboot disk (scsi) Win XP/32-bit. Press any key when you are ready.


I cannot continue the installation at this point.

The grub.cfg file indicates the following :

Code:

floppy=(hd0,1)/vboot/vboot-2k.img

Improve the UX please. Why do you still have the exe files in different folders? Put all tools in the root of vboot dir and those exe are dummies which detect which Windows you use and call the exe which is correct for your Windows.

Example: Put the vbootctl.exe (32Bit to ensure it works on 32 and 64Bit) into C:\vboot and if you run it, it detect if you use a 32Bit Windows it runs the version "C:\vboot\tools\x86\vbootctl.exe" and if you have a 64Bit Windows it runs "C:\vboot\tools\amd64\vbootctl.exe".

This makes the usage much easier for starters. Currently you have to go to different folders and run some tools from C:\vboot and other from C:\vboot\tools\amd64 or C:\vboot\tools\x86. This sucks.

Can I now convert Vista WIMs to VHDs with drive C or is the Windows still drive D?

can you check the modified date on \vboot\vboot file? it should be Nov 2011. I made another update after 1st (after about 2 hrs), so make sure you redownload the latest zip file.

MagicAndre1981,

there is no way to determine which exe to run under PE (i.e., when you boot windows 7 from cdrom). 32-bit exe won't run in 64-bit system.

vista D still doesn't work, it's in our plan, will try to fix it next build, just need to change some registry entries.

Hi huisinro,

My current vboot\vboot file dates 20 February 2011. I downloaded now again the zip file and the new vboot file dates 27 November 2011. I will try again the Windows 2000 installation.

Hi huisinro,

I tried the latest vboot update and this time I installed successfully Windows 2000 on the virtual disc. Thanks again for the new release.
