Add Dr Web LiveCD ISO + persistence to E2B

Here is the .mnu file for Dr Web 900 LiveDisk ISO with persistence

A copy is available from the Alternate Downloads Area here.


# Make an ext3 file using RMPrepUSB in the root of the drive (i.e. File Name=drweb-rw  Volume Name=casper-rw)
# Place this .mnu file and the ISO in (_ISO\xxx\MNU), e.g. \_ISO\MainMenu\MNU or \_ISO\Linux\MNU
# This menu will work even on an NTFS USB boot drive
# IMPORTANT: you MUST run WinContig (\MAKE_THIS_DRIVE_CONTIGUOUS.cmd) before booting E2B.

If you have E2B v1.98a or later, you can use the .isopersist file extension - then no .mnu file is required. For more details, see the E2B web page here.

P.S. Newer 2018 versions seems to need a union=aufs parameter in order to boot successfully.

DrWeb_Persistent.imgPTN23 file can be found here. It was made as follows:
1. Make a 800MB FAT32 partition on a USB drive
2. Download and run the DrWeb USB creator utility drweb-livedisk-900-usb.exe
3. Run it to extract the files to the USB drive
4. Boot the USB drive on a real system - this prepares it
5. Refresh the updates - reboot and check updates are persistent
6. Drag-and-drop the USB drive letter onto the MPI_FAT32 Desktop icon to make a .imgPTN23 file (syslinux 603, auto-convert). I modified the \syslinux\txt.cfg and the \boot\grub\grub.cfg files to add nomodeset vga=ask ignore_uuid.
