 Post subject: Adding ISOs to UBCD Custom areas, and booting from PXE

Hello,

I managed to get UBCD booting from PXE using TFTPD32, and I noticed I can switch to GRUB but not back to ISOLINUX. It gives me the error: cannot chainload ISOLINUX from a non-CDROM Device. Is there something I can edit to allow for that?

Also, I would like to add my Acronis ISOs to the custom screen, but I cannot seem to get it working. I also read that ISOLINUX cannot boot from ISOs but GRUB can. Is this accurate?

The current path is C:\ubcd\ubcd\custom
The test ISO is named 012708.iso (ACRONIS LINUX)

I have in my custom.lst the following
title ACRONIS (LINUX)
find --set-root /ubcd/custom/012708.iso
map --mem /ubcd/custom/012708.iso (hd32)
map --hook
root (hd32)
chainloader (hd32)


I always get an error that the file cannot be found.

ISOLINUX only understands ISO filesystems.

PXELINUX understands tftp (not sure if this can be chainloaded from grub4dos).

ISO emulation is limited:
http://syslinux.zytor.com/wiki/index.ph ... pletely.21

MEMDISK of Syslunux does the same as the grub4dos command: "map --mem file.iso (hd32); map -hook; root (hd32); chainloader (hd32)"

If you get the errorm that the file can't be found, it means that grub4dos can't find the file at that locationsIF you are booting from PXE, "find --set-root /ubcd/custom/012708.iso" doesn't make much sense.

So can I make this work?

Look at this guide:
http://diddy.boot-land.net/grub4dos/files/pxe.htm

Assuming that Acronis can be booted with ISO emulation:
Code:
map --mem (pd)/ubcd/custom/012708.iso (hd32)
map --hook
root (hd32)
chainloader (hd32)

After changing it to the file below, the selections now do nothing. What did I do wrong?

Code:
LABEL -
MENU LABEL ACRONIS (LINUX)
map --mem (pd)/ubcd/custom/012708.iso (hd32)
map --hook
root (hd32)
chainloader (hd32)

LABEL -
MENU LABEL PW CHG
map --mem (pd)/ubcd/custom/Pwdchg.iso (hd32)
map --hook
root (hd32)
chainloader (hd32)

You are mixing Syslinux syntax with grub4dos syntax.
