XBootFlashDrive Final 2011 | 3.89 GB
XBootFlashDrive - set for a reanimation installation multiboot stick containing CD-ROM partition (which will be perceived by the motherboard BIOS and operating system as a conventional CD-ROM) as a boot, which gives the gain in speed relative to CD / DVD discs, a high probability of successful downloads than using a USB-HDD bootable USB drive (and do not exclude the possibility of applying this type of loading on the second partition), and also allows you to load from the CD Live section of the system, which can not be used for USB-HDD boot media (eg, Alkid) and install any distribution WinXP without first preparing it. In addition, CD partition on the flash drive is not pogryzut viruses.
The disadvantage of this method of downloading is that the methodology and software for creating CD-ROM section of individual controllers for each manufacturer and, therefore, will first need to determine a controller which is used in your flash drive, and then use it to create CD- ROM section dedicated to this family kontorollerov (it is much easier than it sounds).
The composition and characteristics of a multiboot disk:
XBootFlashDrive.iso - CD-ROM image partition flash drive
DrivePrep \ - program to create CD-ROM section, and determine the type of controller stick
FlashDrive \ - the contents of the second section of the flash drive (DriverPackSolution with drivers for Win7x86 and WinXP, software and drivers for LEX Live, install wim image Win7)
If you want to try without a CD-ROM section, we can write the iso image on 800MB CD, but the contents of the 'FlashDrive \' on any USB flash drive and use them together.
The Boot menu:
Microsoft Windows XP SP3 Zver
Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate
LEX Live 2011 'X' Edition
Acronis Disk Director Server 10 & True Image Echo Server 9.7
Partition Guru 3.5
Victoria v3.52 Rus
Memtest86 + v4.20
Windows Key 11.0
In the folder 'FlashDrive \' is what you need to be written on the second partition of flash drive - DriverPackSolution (I cut out all social functions, check the CPU temperature and the presence of anti-virus, install additional. Programs) with drivers for Win7x86 and WinXP (in tons hours and OEMDRV used when installing Zver), install wim image Win7 folder 'sources' (more on the use of this directory under spoiler 'Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate'), software and drivers for LEX Live, as well as 'XBootFD.lst' - Additional user Grub menu, edit it as desired, adding what you are missing.
Creating a bootable USB drive with CD-ROM section:
(All utilities mentioned below are part of the deal and in the folder 'DrivePrep \')
In general terms, how to create a bootable USB drive with CD-ROM section looks like this:
define the controller stick to its VID / PID (using a utility ChipGenius or on sites with databases VID / PID)
find a program working with the controller (for the most popular - Alcor, Phison and USBest - are included in distribution)
with a suitable program create CD-ROM section of the image 'XBootFlashDrive.iso' (with all the information on a flash drive is erased!)
in the second section copy the contents of the folder 'FlashDrive \'
More precisely, the creation of a CD-ROM section, one can only say having the specific USB flash drive. The largest Russian-language website on the subject - FlashBoot.ru, there articles, and a decent forum, and archive the programs, and the base of VID / PID flash drives. There, I think, if there is some misunderstanding, then it finally disappears.
Based on the information on the various forums, flash controllers USBest best suited for this purpose because they are the most reliable way to emulate the BIOS USB CD-ROM and loaded, respectively, on more computers.
