Easy2Boot v1.26 available (with new batch file to make an E2B USB drive)

v1.26 2014-02-05
  1. Small changes so we can have individual XP ISO entries in the Main menu (e.g. 'Install XP Home' and 'Install XP Pro' can be in the main menu with no need to pick the ISO name). Use XP_Inst_from_MainMenu.mnu in sample mnu folder as an example.
  2. A few new sample .mnu files added for OpenElec and XiaOpan
  3. Latest grub4dos version 0.4.5c 2014-01-17
  4. New \_ISO\docs\Make_E2B_USB_Drive.cmd batch file added to automate making of an E2B drive (requires RMPrepUSB to be pre-installed).
The Make_E2B_USB_Drive.cmd batch file is designed to be run from the \_ISO\docs folder.
Download the E2B .zip file, extract it to a temporary folder on your hard disk and then double-click on the Make_E2B_USB_Drive.cmd batch file to make an Easy2Boot USB drive (requires Admin rights). It formats the USB drive (choice of FAT32 or NTFS), installs grub4dos and then copies the E2B files across. Your E2B drive is then ready to boot!

The batch file requires RMPrepUSB to be pre-installed on your system in the default (C:\Program Files) folder.
