E2B v1.58 Released

  • Large exFAT drive issue fixed (debug off in LstFExt.g4b needed due to grub4dos bug),
  • .isopup fixed in QRUN.g4b
  • Small fix to allow $$main.mnu user file to load new splashimage for Main menu.
  • Reduce number of file accesses in \_ISO\e2b\grub\menu.lst code for faster boot up. 
  • Added support for multiple wallpaper backgrounds, even if FASTLOAD is used. 
  • Redundant environment variables tidied up. 
  • New grub4dos for exFAT (no Warning messages). 
  • \EFI (memtest86) folder removed (stopped some systems booting to grub4dos!).
  • New features, etc. added to the \_ISO\Sample_MyE2B.cfg file
  • Warns user if no BIOS system hard disk is found
Note that I have now removed the MemTest86 UEFI boot files so that you can no longer boot to MemTest from a FAT32 E2B drive directly. Instead you can download the ISO file from the PassMark MemTest86 website and convert it to a .imgPTN file using MakePartImage if you want a UEFI memory test feature.

If you are updating your FAT32 E2B USB drive, I would advise you to delete the \EFI folder from it, as this can prevent E2B from booting on some UEFI systems as I detailed in my previous blog here. If you have an NTFS E2B drive then the \EFI folder serves no purpose anyway as UEFI will not boot from an NTFS partition.
